Tips for Creating a Safe Sleep Environment

Remember – WHEN IN DOUBT – THROW IT OUT! Products used in the nursery, especially cribs and bassinets, have caused deaths and have been the subject of numerous recalls of millions of units.

If you would like to sell a crib at our Sweet Swaps Kids Consignment Sale event, please complete the following required checklist and email, mail or fax it to us along with your consignor agreement. This also takes just a few minutes to complete and can save a child’s life:
