At Sweet Swaps, we want you to enjoy shopping with us!!! Our top ten shopping tips will help you get the most out of your shopping trip!!! Happy Shopping!
- Shop Early:
Consignors are able to set their own prices so you may find the same item priced differently. To get the lowest prices and best selection on toys, larger sizes of kids clothing and a variety of other items, its best to shop early or volunteer. We have several presale opportunities and in appreciation, our volunteers and consignors always shop before the public.
- Shopping Bags:
Large shopping bags will be provided for your convenience, however, they are available on a first come first serve basis. While we may have enough for most shoppers, it is likely that we may run out. Feel free to bring you own large shopping bag or even a laundry basket to shop for your treasures.
Children are welcome to shop with you if necessary, however, the sales floor may be crowded and you may be distracted. Consider buddying up with another shopper and take turns watching each other’s children when shopping. Please keep your children safe and keep them with you at all times.
- Shopping with Friends:
Shopping with friends, family or your spouse can be fun! It can also be helpful to have someone else to help you carry your – fabulous frugal finds – to you vehicle. We will have staff and carts on site to assist with loading items, however these services will be limited.
- Have a list:
Having a list is a great way to ensure you are making the most of your shopping trip! Consider taking inventory of the things your child already has, really needs and is about to grow out of. Plan to shop for at least the next 6 months of your child’s wardrobe, and the next stage of toys, books and educational items. For your convenience, click to access your free printable shopping list.
- Measure your child:
Take your child’s measurements prior to shopping. Tip: You can trace your child’s foot on a piece of card stock or cardboard when shopping for shoes and you can use measuring tape for waist, arm and leg measurements. For your convenience, click to access your free printable sizing charts. Check racks with clothing that is a size smaller as well as larger than your child’s normal size. You might find items that also fits in these other sizes.
- See it… Get it!
If you see something you like its best to grab it fast! Great items at great deals go fast!!! We will have item sorting areas available for your convenience. If you do change your mind on an item, please be sweet and put it back in its place so that another shopper is able to find it.
- Check your items:
Although we inspect all items for quality during seller check in, at times an item may get through that may be missing a button or batteries, or may have a small stain that was missed. Please remember… All sales are FINAL! Note: If you notice an item that seems to have missed our quality standards during check in, feel free to let one of our Happy Helpers know so the item may be pulled from the sales floor.
Debit, credit and cash payments are accepted. Cash payments are always an easier form of payment and will help you get through the line faster.
