Turn left at the fork where the coffee shop is. The grange is located about 1/3 of a mile down on President.


CONSIGNING YOUR STUFF: How It Works

You set the price. You make 70% of the sales price. This is much higher than the percentage you get at consignment stores.

You tag your own items according to the tagging instructions, (before you get there) and drop them off during drop off times. Bring your items in a laundry basket, box, plastic tub or a wagon it keeps all your things clean and organized.
Before inspection please sign-in. After inspection, please count the items you'll be selling and mark that on the sign-up sheet. A volunteer will help you put them in the appropriate place.

We sell it for you. Yeah!

The last 3 hours on Saturday is 50%. If you are willing to sell an item at a discounted price, you may choose to mark it 50%. If it is sold on the last day. Put a red dot on the bottom corner for 50% off. You may also leave it for full price.

At the end of the sale, we have a pick up time slot if you want your things that didn’t sell. If you can’t come, you may send a friend with a permission slip to pick up your things. The note must have your code number and signature on it. All unclaimed items become property of Kiddie-Kart when the pick up time has expired. We donate items to a local charity.

We mail you your check for your sold items along with your tags (if requested) within a week. Also, there is a $7.00 facility fee that will be deducted from your total earnings. This helps pay for the equipment, advertising, rental of the building, of check and tags.

BONUS: All consignors are invited to the presale the day before the sale opens to the general public.

Has anyone ever been to this one before? Is it high quality?= like Moppet Togs?

I have consigned with them before and the only drawbacks from what I saw was the $7 extra facility fee. They typically have a whole section of Gymboree clothing (for the gymboree addicts)otherwise the clothing is fairly good quality, but I wouldn't say mostly name brand stuff. The location is also a bit of a drawback as it isn't very visable unless you know about the sale you probably wouldn't stop. Also, Moppet Togs pays you right away, with this consignment you will be waiting on your check.

This is also the case with the Kidsignments sale that will be taking place at St. Michael's this month. They DO have higher quality clothing (and it is PACKED) but the last time I cosigned with them I waited A LONG time for my check.

Personally, I have found the Mothers of Twins Yardsale to be the best place to pick up cheap name brand clothing items (their semi-annual sale is in May and October I believe). The best place to sell if you don't mind waiting for your money is probably Kidsignments.

Just my humble opnion.
