FAQ’s

  • What exactly is a kids consignment sale? Just4Kids is not a year ’round storefront. A few times a year we rent out a large space and host a sale of gently used and new kids items that are consigned through us by parents like you. Our sales are typically in March, August, and November.
  • How does the sale work? Parents register to consign through the website. Once registered you will receive a consignor number which will allow you to log onto your consignor homepage. Through your homepage you enter all of the items you will be selling into our easy to use system. This will generate bar coded tags which you place on all of your items. On set-up day you bring all of your items to the sale to be placed around the sales floor. That’s it. Each night of the sale your homepage will be updated so you can check on how your items are selling. You do not need to be present during the sale.
  • Can I drop stuff off to donate them to the sale? No. We do not accept donations, as all of our items need to be bar code tagged before the sale.
  • When is the latest I can register for the sale? Registration for our sales will close either when we reach our capacity, or at the time of the inventory shut-down which will be listed on an icon on our homepage. We suggest you register as early as possible so you’ll have plenty of time to build a full inventory. Make sure you’ve joined our email mailing list so you’ll get early notification of when our registration is opening.
  • When do all of my items need to be into the tagging system by?  We will post a graphic on the homepage of the website with the time of the inventory shut-down. This is the time that all of your inventory must be entered into the system. You will not be able to make any additions or edits to your inventory after that time. You can still print any tags in the system after this shut down time.
  • How much can I bring to the sale? There is a limit of 250 total items you can bring to the sale. Our tagging system will not let you enter more than that.  Within that limit there is a limit of 100 hanging pieces of kids clothing, which includes only 25 hangers of Newborn through 12 months. You may bring 10 pieces of maternity clothes (please make sure they are current styles), and 10 pair of excellent condition shoes per consignor.
  • Does all clothing have to be hanging? Hanging clothes sell better. People want to be able to fully inspect the items they are buying. There will be basket space for onsies in bags and sleepers in bags in sizes from newborn through 12 months ONLY, but if you haven’t reached your 100 hanging item limit you should try to put as much as possible on hangers. DO NOT bring clothing in bags that is larger than 12 months- it will get pulled from the floor.
  • What can I sell at the sale? Anything kid related that is in good working condition, isn’t stained or ripped, and isn’t subject to a recall. Please check our “What to Bring” page under the Consignor tab for all of the specifics.
  • How much will I earn at the sale? Consignors earn 60% of the prices that they set for their items, with the opportunity to earn up to 80% if they register to volunteer. Checks are generally mailed about a week  following consignor pick-up.
  • What items sell best? Toys, books, and baby gear are in high demand, as well as clothing sizes 12 months through 6.  We do sell plenty of clothes in other sizes, these are just our best selling sizes.
  • What can I do to be a more successful consignor? Like anything, the more you put into it, the more you get out of it.  It may take more time to make sure your clothing is stain free and wrinkle free, or that your toys are all clean and working, but well presented items are much more likely to sell.  The key to success is starting early. When you go through the closets at the end of a season start a box of things for the next sale. Whenever you come across something you can’t use anymore that is still in good shape, add it to the box. Once registration opens you’ll be able to start entering your inventory early, instead of rushing at the last minute and then forgetting things.
  • Do I need to provide my own hangers? Yes, you do. We only accept wire hangers. The only exception to this rule is the clip type pant hangers that can be used for bottoms only. Wire hangers can be found at some dry cleaners (ask if they have any that they recycle) or at WalMart. We will also have some for sale through our tagging service. You can contact them at Tagging@Just4KidsConsignment.com to arrange a pick-up of hangers.
  • Will I get my hangers back? No. We have been removing less and less hangers each sale in an effort to speed our line, so we have very few left over to return to consignors. Whatever we have collected during the sale will be available at pick-up on a first come first served basis.
  • What happens to my unsold items? While entering your items into inventory you have the option of marking them for donation or not. Items not marked for donation will be sorted by consignor number at the end of the sale and can be picked up during the designated pick-up times.  Items marked for donation become the property of Just4Kids, to be distributed to charitable organizations at our discretion.  In the past our sale has made donations to Camden County Center for Family Services, and Durand Academy and Services.
  • Do I have to mark my items as discounted on 1/2 price Sunday? Absolutely not. The pricing of your items is completely up to you. We sell many, many items on full price days that are marked to be discounted on Sunday, just as we do sell full priced items on Sunday.  Just because you mark things to be discounted doesn’t mean they won’t sell at full price. The key to selling at full price instead of 1/2 price is setting a good full price. Our system now marks all items that are designated for donation to also be marked for 1/2 price on Sunday. Getting 1/2 price is better than getting nothing, right?
  • How should I price my items? The most important thing to remember is to not price with your emotions.  If something has a lot of sentiment to you, consider holding onto it.  We suggest pricing items 1/4 – 1/3 of their retail price.  If they are new, boutique, or in excellent condition they may sell for more.  Hot tip: If you have an item you plan to discount, consider lowering the full price just a bit to make it a great deal at full price.  Instead of pricing it at $10 and being willing to accept $5 on 1/2 price day, mark it for $8 if you think that’s a great bargain price, therefore giving yourself a much better chance of selling it at full price.
  • How can I shop the sale early? Only consignors and volunteers shop the sale before it opens to the public. We do offer limited opportunities for the general public to make a donation to our snack fund  in exchange for a pre-sale pass, so please make sure you are on our mailing list so you can get an email when this opportunity is offered. These spots do fill quickly. We also have a limited number of New Mom pre-sale passes available each sale for families welcoming a new baby.
  • Can I volunteer without consigning? No, only consignors can volunteer.
  • What forms of payment do you accept? We accept CASH, Visa, Mastercard, Discover, and Visa/MC based Debit cards. We do not accept personal checks or American Express.
