Frequently Asked Questions

What makes Crème Brulee different from other sales?
~We are unique in the quality of items we offer. We focus on bringing our shoppers the best and carefully inspect each item. We have also searched high and low to bring you the most fabulous Boutique items. We want to provide you with a more upscale experience in service, atmosphere, and products. We also pay our consignors a higher percentage then consignment stores and other area sales.

What is the deadline to register to consign?
~You can sign up the day of the sale. Our tagging system closes at 10:00am on Thursday our drop off day.

Do you have a store, or plans to open one?
~We do not have a store or any plans to become one. We want to be a large event sale that shoppers look forward to. Each sale will offer more items for sale than most stores could fit!

Do you accept all seasons of clothing at both sales?
~Yes, we think that many moms look ahead to the next season/size when making their purchases so we allow our consignors to bring all seasons. Keep in mind that some items, such as swim wear, and Christmas dresses, sell best in their proper season.

What if I want to consign but I can’t make the drop off or pick up times?
~Drop off times are available from 2:00-5:30pm on Thursday the day before the sale opens to the public. Pick up is available from 7:00-8:00pm on Saturday. You may have a friend of family member do either for you if you cannot make it. We are unable to transport items to the sale for you, or hold your items after the sale has ended. If you do not pick up your items, they are immediately donated.

I have some cute clothes that are in excellent condition, but they aren’t very high end brands, can I consign them with you?
~Yes, we will accept a stylish piece of clothing in great condition even if it’s not name brand. What we want to avoid is someone who wants to consign only store brand/outlet type clothing. If this is mostly what you have, then probably this is not the sale for you.

What if I have lots of great stuff but no time to prepare it?
~If you don't have time to clean, press, price and tag your items, you may be invited to take advantage of early drop-off, and we'll do all of that for you. This option is available to consignors who have items that are in high demand with our shoppers, name brand, and in season. Preference will be given to clothing in sizes above 2T, as the smaller sizes are more plentiful at the sale. Email us if you would like to be considered, as this popular option fills up fast and may not be available too close to the sale.

How do I become a Boutique Seller?
~Simply email us and let us know about the products you make or represent, and we'll go from there. We have several different options for Boutique sellers to help you be successful. Please note we do not accept any businesses that are not focused on items for babies, kids or families.

Are there franchise opportunities to own a Creme Brulee kids sale?
We are researching this possibility, as several people have contacted us with an interest. If you are interested email us and we'll talk!

FAQ's for consignors:

How soon after the sale will I receive my consigning check?
~Your consignor checks will be mailed out within 2 weeks of the last day of the sale. You will be able to view your sales in your account prior and know how much you've earned.

Do I have to provide hangers, and do I get them back?
All clothing items must arrive on hangers (facing left, like a question mark) childrens' tube hangers come 10-12 in a pack for $1-$2. You can also get free hangers if you ask from some retailers (Osh Kosh, and Carters for example) You are welcome to mark your hangers with masking tape if you like, we do not usually have time to sort through them for you however. All hangers are in large bins at the end of the sale and consignors are free to take some home.

Do you take large baby equipment and furniture?

Yes! In fact these items are always in demand. Please make sure the item you bring is clean, in working order, with batteries included so shoppers can see they work. Items must also be up to date and meet current safety standards-PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU DO NOT BRING ANY ITEM THAT HAS BEEN RECALLED!
