Shopper Frequently Asked Questions
Is there an entry fee?
What if I buy something, get it home and find it damaged or it doesn’t fit?
Do I need to bring anything with me to shop?
Wagons are amazing shopping tools. We also have a few shopping carts & large IKEA bags for shoppers to use but you are welcome to bring empty totes or Thirty One bags. We suggest a list of your kids’ sizes and needs, a tape measure for larger items, a cardboard cutout of your child’s foot for shoe sizes (what fun for them to make!). Friends don’t let friends shop alone so bring one or two with you and make it a “girl’s day out”!!
Shoppers may bring in strollers of ANY size on public sale days (not during presales though). No diaper bags, back packs or purses larger than the size of a regular 8.5 x 11 sheet of paper, etc. All strollers & bags will be checked upon entrance and exit so please be prepared to lift those cute little baby bums so we can check that all purchases made it through the check out stations. Our consignors appreciate your understanding and for purchasing their items!
May I bring a shopping bag or purse?
No diapers bags, back packs or large purses permitted while you shop so please plan accordingly and leave them in the car. All bags and strollers will be checked at the door upon exit. A purse/bag/backpack is considered large if it is larger than a regular sheet of paper (8.5×11).
May I bring my kids to the public sale?
Absolutely! Kids are always welcome at the public sale. No walking children or strollers during ticketed Pre-sales. Infants may be worn.
Please keep in mind that the sale will be very busy & crowded and for their safety, children must be accompanied by an adult and stay with them at all times. All bags and strollers will be checked upon exit. We appreciate your cooperation and understanding.
