How can we help?
Who can consign?
Do I need to be present to sell my items?
No. You prepare your items, tag them using our free bar-code system and drop them off during the drop-off times – or – you can utilize our Drop & Go Tagging Service – and we’ll do the rest! At the end of the sale, you can choose to either pick up your unsold items or have them donated to help local families in need.
I consign(ed) with another local sale, can I consign at a Next Size Up Kids Sale?
Why do you charge a $10 consignor fee?
Your $10 consignor fee helps us with the operating costs of a sale event, such as, facility rental, registers, utilities and insurance.
How much will I earn?
All consignors earn 70% commission on the items they sell. Our volunteers earn an additional 5% commission! Earn 75% of your sold items by volunteering at least 4 hours during our sale event!
Will I be able to view my sales during the sale?
Yes! At the end of each sale day, the sales will be uploaded. You’ll be able to log into your consignor homepage and view your sales.
What can I do to help my items sell?
There are four things you can do as a consignor to ensure the best chance of your items selling at an upcoming NSU Kids sale:
- Price your item(s) competitively. We often receive duplicates of the same item. You definitely won’t want yours to be the most expensive! For help pricing your items, visit our pricing guidelines page.
- Make sure clothing is freshly laundered, free of wrinkles and smells fresh.
- Sell clothing in sets. Matching tops & bottoms sell better than their separate counterparts.
- Clean! You’ll want to be sure that any item(s) you bring to the sale is free of tears, rips, holes, stains, etc. Wipe down toys and large baby equipment with a disinfecting wipe to make it sparkle! Most cloth portions of larger baby equipment detaches for laundering. Check your owner’s manual.
When will I receive my consignor check?
Consignor checks will be mailed out within 10 business days following each sale event.
How do I price my items?
A general rule is to price items 1/4 – 1/3 of the retail cost. For near-new and excellent condition items, 1/2 of the retail cost or less is a good rule of thumb. See also our pricing guidelines to help you price your items.
How can I attach the tags to my items?
We accept safety pins AND tagging guns. You can also attach tags to plastic bags with clear packing tape. Please use only blue painter’s tape on books and puzzles.
What kinds of items do you accept?
Please see our what we accept page for a complete list of items we accept at each sale.
