Bedding & Blankets

Bedding sizes accepted are bassinet through twin only. Please be selective when selling bedding, blankets, receiving blankets, burp cloths, and towels. New and barely used items sell best. Check carefully for stains; shoppers get very disappointed if they find a stain in a bundled blanket once they get home.

Package: Put bedding/crib/bedroom sets together in original packaging or in giant clear plastic bags. Arrange bedding sets inside bag so that shoppers can see all of the items as well as the design/pattern. Secure the bag so that items do not get separated. Hang smaller blankets, cloths, and towels on pant hangers or pinned to adult size hangers

Price:  Price to sell! Shoppers are less likely to purchase these items used, so prices have to be low. 

Tag:  If bedding is in a plastic bag, attach tag securely with packaging tape to the inside of the bag and tape the bag shut.  If hung, please pin the tag securely.

Books, Games, DVDs, Arts & Crafts

Books, book sets, board games, puzzles, video games, video game systems, scrapbook, arts & crafts sets are great items for resale.  Please only bring kids’, parenting, homeschooling, and pregnancy books. 

Games and puzzles must have all pieces.  (No "adult" content please.)  Check items to ensure they are in great condition.

Package:  Use clear, self-seal bags or clear cling wrap (saran wrap) to hold multiple items together; Tie sets of books together with ribbon/string. Be sure that parts/games to video game systems (such as Vtech) cannot be separated or switched out at the sale. 

Price:  Prices can range from $.50 to $50 in this category, depending on the item. Price to sell especially for books & DVDs as there are always lots to choose from at the sale.

Tag:  When tagging books, please attach your tag to the book with blue painter's tape that can be removed without damaging the item. Tape tag to the outside cover of books. Hole-punch JBF tag and tie to sets.

Clothing

We sell children's clothing Newborn through size 20 girl's junior size items, and maternity sizes (limit 20 on juniors and maternity clothing only.)  

Our Fall Sale is fall & winter clothing only (what your child would wear between October-March).

Be picky. Look at your clothing items as if you were going to purchase them. No stained or damaged items over 5 years old will be accepted.  

Please freshly clean your clothing items. Replace missing buttons, sew loose hems and seams, and clip loose threads. Please button all buttons, snap all snaps, zip all zippers before you arrive at drop off.

The newer the item looks (and the better it smells), the better it will sell.

Package & Hang:  Hangers - Please hang clothes so the hanger hook points to the left (like a question mark).

Hang size 0-6 clothing on child-size plastic hangers and sizes 7-20 and maternity clothing on adult-size plastic hangers.

Clothing that falls off the hanger onto the floor does not sell well. Old Navy and many outlet stores are great places to get free hangers (they throw away hangers daily!) and WalMart & Target sell child-size plastic tube hangers at a great price. 

Clothing Sets - Sets tend to sell better (under size 4) so match things up if you can. All garments should be hung with the hanger hook pointing left (hanger should resemble a question mark when looking at the front of item). Safety pin or use a tagging gun to attach clothing sets securely with bottom garment hung on the backside of the shirt, so both pieces can be viewed without separating them.  Pants/Shorts

- Pant-clip hangers are great but if you use a standard hanger, simply use large safety pins or your tagging gun to attach pants to the top part of the hanger so the garment will not slide.

Onesies and sleepers need to be hung.  Socks, tights, hats and infant mittens need to be in a clear zip-lock bag (you may group multiple items in one bag). Please be sure to label your tag well.

Price:  Hanging Clothing - Price most items under $5.00 and mark for the half price sale. Put outfits/set together to price for at least $3.00;

Size 0-3 ($1-$3), Size 3-5 ($3-$5), and Size 6&up ($5-$7).  Price according to brand and condition.

Tag:  Clothing on Hangers - Attach tag with a tagging gun or safety pin to the label of shirt or upper right front of garment. Insert the gun in a label or inside seam NOT through part of the clothing. (Items with holes from tagging guns will not be accepted).

Non-Hanging Clothing - Please use tagging gun or safety pins to attach tags to onesies, socks, tights, infant mittens, and accessories. Put multiple items into clear zip-lock bags, insert tag, and tape bags closed.

Hi, my name is Gloria. I have been married to my husband Josh for 20 years, and we have 2 children - Jackson (11) and Reagan (9).  

I want to help other moms to not only make money on the investment they have made in their children's clothes and toys, but also to find good bargains on anything they might need for their growing families.
