  1. What is a crib waiver and what do I need to do to sell a crib? It said something about needing to assemble it?

    • When you drop it off at your drop off time, you will need to assemble it so everyone can see what it looks like and that it has all its parts. We will have crib waivers available then as well for you to fill out and sign. It asks basic safety questions so the buyer can know they are getting a quality crib for their child. See you soon!

  2. They are many different consignor drop off half hour slots throughout the day/evening on Thursday, August 7 and during the day Friday, August 8. When you register as a consignor, you get to select your drop off shift. πŸ™‚

  3. Hello! Will there be carts or bags for this sale? Or should we bring our own? I’m hoping to get some big items but don’t want to carry them around with me

    • We have a holding area where you can place large items you want to purchase while shopping more. You can bring your own bag, but if you are one of the first 100 shoppers on Saturday, you get a free reusable Spotted Whale bag!

  4. I’m a consignor and plan on going to the presale on Friday. Do I need to bring a pass or something, or will my name just be on a list? And, if I bring a guest, do they need to arrive with me, or can they just reference my name to get in? Thanks!

    • Your name is put on the official list once you bring your items to consign during your drop off shift. Your guest can mention your name if they can’t come with you. See you soon!

  5. I unexpectedly had to drop out of consigning for the last sale, but I still have all of my items tagged (from previous sale). Do I just move them to “active inventory” and leave the old tags on, or do I need to print new tags??

  6. I just registered to consign, but I’m not sure I’ll get through all my items before the sale next weekend. Could I just start listing my inventory and save it for the next sale? Do I just list inventory, print tags and not register for a drop off time until your next sale? Approximately when is your next sale scheduled? Thank you!

    • Yes, that is an option, but you also could just bring as much as you are able to tag this time and bring the rest next sale. One of us is having a baby in early 2018 so our next sale probably won’t be until May or June.

  7. If my husband and I go together for the presale, it would cost $20 correct? And we won’t have to pay for our young children who would come to right?

  8. Should nursing bras be hung on hangers?
    How about onesies that are grouped? They should be grouped on a hanger?
