We want to be known for having the best quality merchandise and we want our consignors – and all of our shoppers – to have confidence that we offer the very BEST at a Sweet Swaps Kids Consignment Sale Event!
Items “WE DO” Accept
Clothing should always meet or exceed our quality standards. Please be sure to replace buttons (with a matching button), check and test zippers, and wash and dry your items. Wrinkled items can be tamed by tossing them in the dryer (include a dryer sheet for added freshness) with a wet/damp wash cloth. This will help your items look their absolute best on the hanger and increase your chances of selling most – if not all of your items.
All clothing must be applicable to the upcoming seasons and should have been manufactured in the last 3-5 years. All clothing must be hung together on one hanger if part of a set. Please also attach matching tights, leggings, hair bows, socks, etc. with a safety pin, zip tie or place in a small zip lock bag and attach to the hanger. Items should be priced to sell at between 25-40% of retail and 50-70 % of retail for items NWT = new with tags. As a reminder, you can view our “Pricing Guide” and “How to Tag Your Items” pages for pricing suggestion and information on how to properly enter and tag your items.
At this time we do not have a set limit on the amount of clothing items you can consign with us. Actually, with our Super Seller program, the more you sell the more you earn. Please visit our Consigning Made Easy page for more details.
