Short on time but want to shop the pre-sale?

If assisting during sale hours doesn’t fit in your schedule there are other things that need to be done “behind the scenes.” These opportunities are good for pre-sale passes only and do not earn the additional sale percentages for consignors.

You MUST email vicki@coastal-kids.com or text 410-603-3925 to sign up for these opportunities. We only have a few of these passes available.
