Receiving week…

We begin receiving this week…are you ready?!  Alright all you procrastinators out there…NOW”S THE TIME!  Receiving begins Thursday evening.  Take a look at the “Dates” in the menu bar to make sure you come when we’re open for receiving:).

*Also, remember if you have over 175 items…please make an appointment.  Just email us with 3 best times for you and we’ll try to make one of those fit.

*When you come to receiving, don’t forget your INVENTORY REPORT!  You must have that to check in!

*We are in desperate need of hangers…if you have any…please let us know (email is fine)!

The store is really shaping up!  We can’t wait for you to see it…we hope you will enjoy the space!

See you soon…

1 week

Well…one more week and Receiving begins!  Whoo-Hoo!

It’s official…we are swamped.   We’ve tried to find a time for a “come see”, but that’s nearly impossible at this point.  So, I’m sorry.  If the pink shirt (the little drawing on the site in “tagging”) still poses questions on how to tag, please ask…we’ll do our best to answer by the next morning.

As for hangers…we are dreadfully low.  If anyone has extras we would LOVE to have them to share.

Another reminder…if you have over 175 items, please contact us for an appointment.

More to come!…

2 weeks!

Happy Valentine’s Day!  We wish you a lovely weekend and a wonderful Valentines Monday!

Well, in 14 days we will be finishing up receiving all your items.    Ready?

For those of you who will have over 175 items, please contact us to make a receiving appointment (  We still have some hangers available…help yourself.

Reminders:  NO diaper genies or car seats over 5 years old.  No fall/winter clothing.  Button all buttons, zip all zippers, snap all snaps.  All items that are supposed to work, must work…include batteries.   Use LARGE Safety pins to attach clothing to hangers (a MUST for bathing suits)…straight pins for tags (3 sticks, in, out, in) only.  3 bags of shoes max…can have more than one pair in a bag, but must be same size.  On bagged items, tag must be on the outside of the bag… 1 strip of clear packing tape across middle.  I’m sure I’m forgetting something, but I’ll let you know:).

We are trying to find a moment when we can have a “question/answer” hour for those who need it to give examples of tagging and hanging and pricing.  It may end up being photos on the website…we’re trying.

Stay tuned for receiving instructions!  See you all soon!

First of the Many!

Well ladies, it’s here…I can update and you can check at your convenience. Maybe this way I won’t inundate you with multiple emails! Well, one can hope :).

In this space I will update and remind and hopefully give you valuable information, so please check on us regularly.

New Consignors…Welcome! Please be sure to check out all the information on the site for instructions on hanging and tagging your clothing and preparing your toys, furniture, and other items to sell. We are working on having a “training day” for those who are visual learners :)…keep checking in for the date and time.

Hangers: We still have some available. Email us for directions

For now, things are running smoothly. Space is leased, Fire inspection has been passed, power is on (need to check on water), and parking is working out. Speaking of parking…we know there is little of it, so we are going to ask you to carpool and give you detailed instructions at receiving concerning available parking Tuesday night. When we receive your items the 24th -26th we will have a map of available parking…be sure to get one. We will also have signs and loving husbands directing traffic (they will also be driving a shuttle, but that’s still our little secret!). There will be more on logistics in the coming weeks…I know you just can’t wait!

We have added a little spot on the website (right hand side/margin) under “Next Sale” it says “Flyer”. We have added that for those of you who would like to post something at work. Feel free to download, print, and post…just make sure it’s ok with whoever is in charge :). Remember, the more who shop, the more you sell!

And now for those pesky and rather “motherly” reminders…ladies, please remember to check your videos. Make sure they are in the box (we suggest taping shut), the right movie is in the right box, and the rating is G or PG. We would rather not have PG-13, but we will make a few exceptions. Video games will be checked for rating as well…nothing over T. We will be testing all battery operated toys and such at receiving. If it doesn’t work, it doesn’t sell…include the batteries. With that said, we understand that action figures with movable parts are still fun without sound…just make sure your tag states that it doesn’t work and price it accordingly. This will NOT be the norm. With baby equipment, it must run when brought in. Games and puzzles…ladies please make sure the pieces are included! Most of this probably doesn’t need to be said, but we understand completely the “purge” bug that enters us as we begin getting ready…the “tagging” bug that follows, and the aching fingers once all the pins have been pinned. We are all guilty of forgetting about the buyer. Try to remember to put yourself in the shoppers position…”how much would I pay for this” and “would I buy this in this condition” are great questions to ask yourself as you are purging and tagging.

Those bringing in bows…please contact us. We do not have the same freedoms to pin through the drywall. You will be responsible for displaying and we would like to talk to you about it so we can make proper arrangements.

Ok, I think enough has been said for our first post…I’m sure there will be others! Have a great Wednesday and talk up the sale! You have already entered over 2,000 items into inventory…keep it up!

Until the next time…
