Frequently Asked 

There is A LOT to learn about shopping and selling at a children's consignment event!
We hope this page will answer all your questions. If not, click the button below to contact us.

  • What are the most important things I need to know about selling?
    You have the opportunity to get a HUGE check at the end of the sale! You will earn 60% (or more) of you sold items! Sellers can shop the Consigner Pre-Sale - a great way to skip the lines and shop before the public! You MUST select a specific Dropoff time! Dropoff times fill up quickly so register NOW and select your Dropoff time to get one that works for you! All items MUST be dropped off -- prepped, tagged and ready to go (clothes on hangers) --before the event starts at the Wayne PAL Building. All items must be SEASONALLY APPROPRIATE for the upcoming event. YOU WILL LOVE THE FEELING OF A CLEAN HOUSE WHEN YOUR DONE!
  • Is there a cost to sell?
    There is a small registration fee of $15.00 that can be paid via Paypal at the time of registration. No paypal account? NO PROBLEM! You will be asked to use a credit card instead. Depending on what you are selling, there may be additional costs to purchase supplies to get your items ready for sale. You can find out more about that here.
  • How do I prepare my items?
    Item prep requires a little bit of work - but we promise it's not that bad! Check for stains, quality, and functionality - then clean or wash all those items that passed inspection. If you're selling toys or baby gear - make sure that everything works, is clean, and has new batteries. Enter all your items into inventory on your Seller Portal and then print price tags which are generated by the online software. Follow guidelines to hang clothes, secure toys, bundle books, etc. and then attach the price tag to each item. You can visit THIS PAGE for more details and THIS PAGE for some pictures of how to prep items.
  • How do I know I'm pricing my items competatively?
    Pricing items correctly is the key to consigment success! You can read more about pricing items HERE. INSIDER TIP: PARTICIPATE IN 1/2 PRICE SALE DAY!!! ** Without fail every seller who marks items to be sold at full price on 1/2 price day sells less items overall and comes home with less money :( **
  • When and where do I drop off my items?
    Drop off is always the Wednesdy before the sale opens to the public. You will drop your items off at the Wayne PAL Building - 1 PAL Dr. Wayne NJ 07470 There are drop off slots every 20 minutes from 10am - 7pm. DROP OFF TIMES ARE BY APPOINTMENT ONLY - register early to get a time that works for you! >> You'll pull up to the front door of the PAL >> Go to the 1st gym on the right and check-in to let us know that you arrived >> Unload your items and park your car >> Come into the Gym where a volunteer will greet you and inspect* your items. >> After inspection (which takes about 10 minutes depending on how many items you have**) you are free to leave - OR - if you're extra awesome you can assist our volunteers in putting your items on the sale floor *As part of our mission to offer HIGH QUALITY SEASONALLY APPROPRIATE items, your items will be inspected at the time of drop off. **To speed through drop off make sure to follow our drop off guidelines that can be found HERE.
  • What happens to items that don't sell?
    When the sale is over, you have unsold items. You can choose to donate all your unsold items to a charity (we'll take care of that for you) or you can pick up your items after the sale ends on Saturday. For more details go to THIS page.
  • When and how do I get paid?
    After the sale ends - we will "reconcile" all sold items and volunteer credits. We'll send you a notification to double check your account to make sure all is as it should be. This usually takes less than 1 week. Immediatly after that we'll issue payment to the PayPal account that you used to register for the sale. For more information on how this works click HERE.
  • If all the items are being sold together, how do you track the sales of each item so that I get credit for my items?"
    As shoppers select and pay for your items, the barcodes you attached to your items are scanned and your payment amounts are calculated. You can even use the online program to track how your items are selling because your totals are updated at the end of each sale day. By the end of the sale, you’ll know exactly how much you earned from your items and can expect a lump sum payment to arrive in one to two weeks.
