Consigning






New Consignor Registration



Returning Consignor Registration

We are looking to add consignors with great taste. We have shoppers in search of Gymboree, Janie and Jack, Gap, Mini Boden, Tea, Naartjie, Hanna Anderson. We also have people who want very high end, boutique and European brands. A stylish piece in excellent used condition from other store brands such as Justice, Old Navy, The Childrens Place, Carters, and Target are just fine also. We will be selective in order to ensure that our sale is full of the things that our shoppers want to buy! How Consigning Works: • You pay a $15 fee to participate in the sale (payable through paypal or mailing a check) consignor fees are to help us cover the cost of the venue and are non refundable. • You determine the price for each of your items (see pricing guide for details) • You decide if you want your items to go 50% off on Saturday (the last day) • You keep 65% of your sales (up to 80% with volunteering tasks and/or shifts!) • As a consignor you shop at the pre-sale before the public (Thursday at 6:30pm) • You have the option to pick up leftover items or donate them at the end of the sale • You will receive your check within two weeks!   Consignor Check in: will be Thursday, May 11 from 2:00pm-5:30pm at the Kent Commons. Your items will be inspected to ensure they meet our guidelines and are tagged correctly, then you will take your items to the appropriate section. (We will have volunteers helping you as they are able) Consignor Pick up: At the end of each sale we donate leftover items to the Trisomy 18 Foundation. If you would prefer to pick up your unsold items, they will be available for pick up after the sale ends on Saturday, May 13th from 7:00pm-8:00pm. Anything not picked up in that time will be donated to charity regardless of how it is marked- no exceptions. We do our best to have everything sorted by consignor number, but it is each consignors responsibility to gather their items from areas not yet sorted. We always sort the clothing first so please be sure to check shoes, accessories, and toys. We do our best to keep track of inventory and take measures to keep tens of thousands of consigned items safe, and accounted for. However, we are not responsible for lost or stolen items. Most commonly items are missed upon pick up, or consignors don't check the lost and found!

GUIDELINES
This is the section that should serve as a guide for what can be sold at Crème Brulée and how to prepare and tag your items successfully. If you have any further questions please ask.

Items we accept:
Name Brand New and Used clothing and shoes for boys and girls size 0-14 for all seasons (must be high quality, in excellent condition).
Newer and in style baby equipment such as strollers, swings, carriers, pack and plays, car seats etc. sell very well.
Furniture such as cribs, rockers, high chairs, etc.
name brand Linens, trendy diaper bags, toys, children's DVDs, video games, etc.


*Please pay close attention. We have limited space and cannot accept items that don't meet these guidelines!

CLOTHING:
-Clothing needs to be free from stains, fading and piling, missing buttons, etc. and basically in excellent used condition.
-Clothing can be from any season, but we recommend that you don't bring very summery items in the fall sales, and the very wintery items in the spring as they do not sell well.
-Please no character clothing (sponge bob, Dora,ect.) this does not apply to costumes, and Disney princess items are an exception.
- Shoes must have very little wear/ scuffing
~Our sale is focused on high quality name brand clothing. Any clothing item you bring in should be in current style. If the dress Great Aunt so and so gave you, looks like something your mom made you wear when you were a kid (ie stiff velvet, rolled ribbon roses, frilly collar-you know the one) please leave it at home!
Again, please understand that some items may not be accepted, simply because they are not what our shoppers are looking for.

MATERNITY We will accept very stylish maternity pieces (if your sister-in-law gave it to you and you never wore it because it is ugly, than our shoppers probably agree with you!)
All clothing items should be on a hanger, hung facing left so that the hook forms a question mark. Make sure your clothing is cleaned and pressed so that it looks its best.

Play Condition:
We generally do not want items that are not in great condition, but if you have a great item with a very small flaw you may sell it by including the words PLAY CONDITION in the tag, and pricing it accordingly. Again, it has to be a small flaw on a great item, or we may have you take it back home with you.


FURNITURE & EQUIPMENT:
All items must be in great condition, meet current safety standards and the fabrics should be clean and up to date (not bears, clowns, bright primary colors) Please nothing over 5 years old.

Car seats must be less than 5 years old and have never been involved in an accident.
Bouncers, swings, etc, should have all pieces and batteries included, so shoppers can see them work
Cribs must be disassembled and include all parts and a large picture of how it looks fully assembled (can be the actual crib or a stock photo)

All consignors will sign a waiver stating that all the items they are selling are not part of a recall and meet current safety standards.

TOYS:
 Any toy that requires batteries, needs to have them included so that shoppers can see they are in working order. All toys should be clean and new looking. Any small pieces should be in a plastic bag attached to the toy. Only new stuffed animals will be accepted.

TAGGING:

Once you have your consignor number and are registered through our system, you can access your account to create, change, and print tags here:


For toys, books and other items, affix the tag securely, and visibly, but in such a way that it will not damage the item when removed (ie double stick tape and books do not mix!)

Please remember the barcode tells the computer the price, make sure your barcodes look clear and crisp. Make sure nothing is printed on the opposite side of your tag, particularly nothing with a barcode!

Do not attempt to shrink or modify the shape of the tag as this will make it difficult to scan.

Changes to your tag involving the price or whether the item will be discounted must be made in the system and not with a pen. Scanners read barcodes, not what you wrote, and if we accepted written in price changes, we wouldn't know if a dishonest person had changed the price or you had!

You do not have to be detailed in your description of the item, however one advantage to being accurate is that we will have a better chance of looking an item up and getting it sold should the tag become detached. A good description includes brand, color, or line (if you know it) the word "set", if there is more than one piece and NWT if the item is new with tag.

PRICING:

You are absolutely in control of the price of each piece. We want you to be happy with the price your item sells for, of course we also want your items to sell well. Use common sense and consider the brand and condition. Try to think what you would pay for the item in excellent used condition. It will be purchased quickly if it's a bargain. When possible include original packaging. Also, multiple piece outfits tend to sell better than individual pieces. If you are not sure what to price an item, refer to the pricing guide. Please stay in 50 cent increments; $6.50 or $7.00- not $6.49 or $6.99.
