All things kids! Check out this list to get an idea of all the things you can sell!
Help us, help you sell your gently used children’s items!
This guide gives you general information and tips on best practices that lead to a higher sell-through percentage and helps prevent tags from being separated from your items. Lost Tags = Lost Sales!
Check all infant equipment, toys, etc for recalls and safety notices on the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CSPC) website.
Print a large item tag, 2-to-a-page format, for larger toys, furniture, larger items that are too bulky to carry around, items that don’t fit in an IKEA bag, and High-Value merchandise (that gets secured near the registers).
Here are a couple of YouTube videos on Large Item tags for you to check out:
Examples of items that need large tags:
High-Value items, Activity Tables, Ball Pit Balls & Pits, Bassinets, Bicycles, Trailers, Booster Seats, Changing Tables, Cribs, Desks, Exersaucers, XL Toys, Large Doll Houses, Kitchens, Outdoor Games & Toys, Train Tables, Scooters, Sports Equipment, Strollers, Tents, Tunnels, Work Benches, Toy Chests, Furniture, & Unicycles
High-Value Items that need to be secured to the yellow rack near the registers should be valued at $20 or more. These items require large item tags to be secured at the yellow rack near the registers. Sellers must secure these items to the rack with zip ties. High value clothing sells better mixed in with clothing.

BUT FIRST THINGS FIRST…
Place non-clothing items in disposable bags (i.e. larger paper or plastic shopping bags, please reserve boxes for fragile and heavy items such as books, etc.)
Number bags accordingly for smooth check-in.
Clothing MUST be bundled with a rubber band LOOSELY attached at the top of the wire hanger; grouped separately by size and gender. Up to ~15 items per bundle.
Outerwear (i.e. heavy winter coats, snow pants) gets separated out from clothing and bundled by size and gender.
Costumes get separated out from clothing and bundled by size and gender. These will be dropped off in the clothing area.
*Bundling with rubber bands is an integral part of the inspection process as well as making flooring clothing quicker. Be prepared to leave the rubber bands on the clothing when you arrive.
Teen clothing racks are ranged from sizes XS – XL. Please bundle your sizes as indicated below:
Teen sizes 00-1 & XXS: bundle with XS

Teen sizes 14+ & XXL+: bundle with XL
When gathering your tagged items for check-in day please use bags and NOT boxes when possible – paper grocery bags, old gift bags, shopping bags, etc. If you use them, please take boxes back home with you.
We plan to reduce the amount of cardboard waste each sale which will also help reduce the amount of time we spend breaking down cardboard boxes and trips to the dumpster. Thanks so much!

Sellers place items inside each door entrance, park, then come inside to place items on the sales floor where they will be displayed.
Woohoo! The sale event is over, all the hard work is done, and, if you’ve inspected and priced right, you’ve sold almost all your inventory! So, what about items that didn’t sell?
As stated in the seller agreement, KidStuff Sale cannot take responsibility for lost or stolen / creatively shopped items. We also cannot hold items after pick-up ends.
