CONSIGNOR QUESTIONS:

Who can consign their items and become a seller?
Everyone is welcome to consign their gently used children's items.

How do I become a consignor?
In order to consign, you need to register. You can do that on the Consignor Registration page of this website. You will assigned your consigner number and can begin entering and tagging your items with our internet based program. There is a $15 fee which is to be paid at the time of consignor registration. You can pay via check, credit card or by using Paypal (a free credit card processing service).

Why is there a $15 registration fee for consignors?
Your registration fee helps cover the cost of the location rental, advertising, insurance, display racks, supplies, and more. Advertising is expensive and we want to let as many people know about the sale as possible. You must pay this fee at time of consignor registration. This fee cannot be refunded.
What percentage of the sales do I receive?
All consignors automatically earn 65% of their items that sell. By volunteering, you can increase the percentage of the sale price you keep. Volunteering for a one 4 hour shift consignors earn 70% of their total sales.   Volunteer slots are limited so please sign up as soon as the volunteer schedule is open.
 
Who sets the prices?
Each consignor prices their own items. The lower you price your items, the better they will sell. You should think about what you would pay for the items if you were buying them. The minimum price you can set is $2.00 and prices should be in increments of 50 cents. There is no maximum price limit. At the sale, there is no negotiating the prices. However, the last day of the sale is the optional half price (50% off) sale day. It is up to you as the consignor to decide if you would like your items to be discounted on that day. When making your product tags online, you may choose which, if any, items you would like to be discounted.

What items are accepted for consignment?
Wiggles and Giggles Consignment will accept new and gently- used, high-quality children's clothing, indoor and outdoor toys, furniture, strollers, playhouses, high chairs, sports equipment, and any other items that are suitable for infants and children. All items must be in good condition. Clothing with stains, missing buttons, broken zippers, excess wear, holes, or tears will not be accepted.

What do you not accept for sale?
It is very important to Wiggles and Giggles Consignment that only safe products are sold at our events.

PRODUCT RECALL AND SAFETY INFORMATION:
As the seller/owner of an item, it is your responsibility to make sure all items meet current safety standards. As a consignor, you are required to check all of the items you consign to make sure none have been recalled before bringing them to drop-off. Please review these links for more information about recalled items:
http://www.cpsc.gov/
 
 
Where do I find wire hangers?
We require that you use wire hangers for all of your items. Dry Cleaning establishments are the best place to pick them up. Most dry cleaners will give you a modest amount of these items for free or will sell them to you for a reasonable price. You can also purchase wire hangers via Craigslist. Please note: The hangers will not be returned to you.

If I consign my items, do I need to stay during the sale?
No. Consignors drop off their items at designated times and return at the end of the sale to pick up their unsold items. You may also choose to have them donated.

How many items can I bring in to sell?
You may sell as many items as you would like - there is no limit. You must sell a minimum of 25 items.

What is the drop-off process?
Please expect to spend 20-30 minutes for drop-off. Upon arrival, all items will be checked in and reviewed, Have your items sorted by sizes, gender or product groups prior to arriving for drop-off to make this quick and easy for yourself.

Will I know what items have sold?
With our computer software, you may check your sales at the end of each sales day by logging on to the consignor page. You will know when, what and for how much something was sold for. Our event will not be a "live" sale meaning sales will not be downloaded during the actual sale hours. Sales figures will be uploaded twice a week to the website. Please allow ample time for this process to occur.

What happens to my unsold items?
Any items that do not sell, consignors may take back. If you do not want to take back your items, Wiggles and Giggles Consignment will donate them on your behalf to a local charity. All items not picked up by the designated time will be donated.

When do I pick-up my unsold items?
Pick-up of items will be on the last day of the month.  Please be in the look out for an email that provides specific times.

Do I have to sort through the racks to find my unsold items?
We need your assistance to sort your clothing items.  Please be prepared to pull your clothing items off the clothing racks when you arrive to pick up your unsold items.  All other items, we will have sorted for you.
 
When do I get paid?
Consignor checks are mailed to you within 2 weeks of the sale ending.
