General Consignment Policies:
Merchandise Consignment Policies:
- You, the consignor, will receive 40% of the items actual sale price.
- Your earnings will accumulate in your account as your items sell. If you have a balance of $11.00 or more after the $1 service fee is deducted & it is after the 23rd of the month & do not use it as a store credit to purchase items, then you will have a check after the 5th of the next month, minus a $1.00 service fee, for your entire balance. If you have less than $11.00 in your account, then your store credit will roll into next month’s business. You may use your store credit at anytime towards purchases in the store.
- If you prefer to be a “credit only” consignor, please let us know. We will always keep your credit on your account for you to use in the store towards purchases & this credit will never expire.
- Checks will be available for you to pick up in the store for 90 days. We do not mail checks except to out of state consignors or consignors living 50 or more miles away. Checks will void after 90 days & will not be re-issued.
- Pricing is set by the store and will be maintained for 45-60 days. After that time, items will be reduced to half price. However, it is at the store’s discretion to change the price at any time.
- Items that have been reduced to half price and remain unsold for 45 days or less, will be donated to a quality charity of our choice. Donation receipts are available upon request.
- Because we have over 5000 consigners, we will not be able to contact you when your items sell, or if you have a check. By giving us a call once a month, we will be able to let you know any activity that is taking place on your account.
- It is your responsibility to mark your calendar one week before the effective date & retrieve your items you do not want reduced in price or donated. Items left after 30 days at half price may no longer be available.

- TOYS- Toys are wonderful sellers. We have found that toys sell best when they are clean & ready to be played with. Toys with batteries in them will sell for more money & sell faster than without. Dollar Tree batteries will do as we know how expensive regular brand batteries are. If toys are brought in without batteries but in good condition, we will still sell them for you but at a lower price.
- ANY ITEMS BROUGHT IN THAT HAVE BEEN RECALLED FOR ANY REASON WILL BE DESTROYED & NOT SOLD OR RETURNED TO YOU.
- When we are sorting your items & come across something that we cannot accept we automatically donate it. Items with stains, tears, rips, missing buttons, snags, broken zippers, too faded or worn looking, aged items, items from resorts or specific destinations printed on or any item we feel is unsellable. If you are unsure about leaving a specific item, please ask us & we will let you know if we feel we can sell it for you. If you are emotionally attached to an item, we recommend that you do not drop it off to consign.
- We donate to several charities around the Denver Metro Area. We have been working with an organization called the NAO Foundation which helps needy families all across our state for many years. Ann, who runs this, is a wonderful soul who gives back to our community in so many ways. If you have items that you feel are not sellable but would like to donate them, please just give them to us & we will make sure they get to Ann’s organization.
- ALL DONATED ITEMS ARE TAX DEDUCTABLE & GO TO ORGANIZATIONS THAT ARE NON-PROFIT. WE DO NOT GIVE OUR ITEMS TO GOODWILL OR SALVATION ARMY TYPE STORES. Most of our donations go to the Denver Rescue Mission, Battered Women’s Shelter, Alternatives Pregnancy Centers & Churches in the area who are in need to help families who may have experienced a house fire or an unplanned child coming into the home. We have also had our donated items end up in a small village in South Africa. I have pictures if you would like to see them, please just ask.
Our goal is to help you, our consignor, receive the best value for your children’s consignments. We reserve the right to price merchandise accordingly, including sales and promotions. If you should have any questions, please do not hesitate to call us. We are here to serve your consignment needs.
