Why should I consign at Sweet Repeats? Sweet Repeats takes care of all the details. We advertise and promote the event guaranteeing lots of potential buyers in a short amount of time. You DO NOT have to be at the sale to sell your items. You can earn more money by consigning at Sweet Repeats rather than selling at other consignment stores or garage sales! Earn 65-80% of the selling price and get paid quickly. We will hold sales twice a year for Spring/Summer items and for Fall/Winter items.
How does the sale work? Consignors register through the website. There is a registration fee of $15 that will be deducted from your total earnings. Once registered, you will receive a consignor number which allows you to log onto your consignor homepage. Through your homepage, you enter all of the items you want to sell into our easy to use system. This will generate bar coded tags which you tag on all of your items. On drop off day you bring all of your items to the sale to be placed around the sales floor. Each night of the sale you will be able to log onto your homepage to check an updated report to see how much you've sold. You do not need to be at the sale, but can earn more money back by volunteering. Within four weeks after the sale a check will be mailed to you.
Does all clothing have to be on hangers? Yes, all clothing needs to be hung on a hanger PRIOR to dropping off at the sale.
How much will I earn at the sale? Consignors earn 65% of the prices that they set for their items, with the opportunity to earn up to 80% if they register to volunteer (5% for every 4 hour shift worked, maximum 3 shifts).
What can I consign? Infant to teen clothing & shoes, coats, outdoor toys & play items, bicycles, trikes & ride on toys, strollers, changing tables & other nursery furniture, exersaucers, baby swings, bouncy seats, infant carriers / slings / backpacks, sports Apparel (cleats, shinguards, helmets, bats, gloves etc), dance apparel (shoes, leotards, etc), dress up clothes, toys, puzzles, games, maternity & nursing apparel, nursery & children's bedding / room decorations, children's books, CDs, DVD's, & VHS Tapes, video games and players, children's electronics
What can't I consign? We do not accept any cribs or mattresses, car seats, stuffed animals (unless they are brand new with tags), or any items that are not children related. Items recalled by the Consumer Product Safety Commission. Consignors are responsible to verify that their items meet safety standards. You can check at CPSC.
What happens to my unsold items? You may choose to donate your unsold items or retrieve them at your designated time (sent via e-mail last day of sale). Items marked for donation become the property of Sweet Repeats to be distributed to charitable organizations at our discretion. If a consignor doesn't pick up their unsold items, the items will become property of Sweet Repeats and a $25 handling fee will be deducted from their total earnings.
Do I have to mark my items as discounted on Discount day? No, the decision to discount your items is completely up to you.
What is the pre-sale and how can I attend? The pre-sale is by invitation only. On pre-sale day volunteers get to shop first, then consignors, and then expecting & new moms (pre-registered). Each volunteer and consignor will get an additional invitation to give to someone. That invitation will allow the person to come and shop the pre-sale before the sale is open to the public. If you don't fall into any of the above categories don't worry, there will be plenty of great items still available Saturday & Sunday!
What is the Expecting & New Mom Pre-sale Registration? Anyone who is expecting a child or has had a child within the last 6 months at the time of the sale is considered a new mom and is eligible to register for a pre-sale pass. Also included are mothers that are adopting. Your pass is good for you and one other person at the designated time. THERE ARE A LIMITED NUMBER OF EXPECTING & NEW MOM PASSES.
What forms of payment do you accept? We accept cash and all major credit cards.
