Make money, save money, and raise money at the Kids First Children's Consignment Sale Event! This event offers an easy and profitable way to sell your gently used children's items, and a great way for shoppers to save on ALL the things kids need! SELLERS earn top-dollar for their items with just one drop-off, and gain a free pass to the Charity Pre-Sale Event. SHOPPERS save on all the things kids need from clothes to furniture. VOLUNTEERS shop before anyone else to get "first dibs" on the best items. All proceeds from this event benefit Kids First, Inc. Child Abuse Treatment Center

Selling At the Sale: How It Works

Step #1: Preregister as a seller. New sellers click here. Returning sellers click here.

Returning sellers: You do need to preregister ONLINE. E-mail registrations can no longer be accepted. Your account password is the last four digits of the phone # you registered with.

Step #2: Prepare your items according to the instructions in this manual, then enter them online, & print your price tags. 

Step #3: SPREAD THE WORD to your friends and family- remember, the more shoppers at the sale, the more money you make!

Step #4: Bring your tagged items and signed Seller’s Agreement to Southgate Mall during one of the Seller Drop-off Times listed above. 

Step #5: Shop! Sellers receive one free pass to the Charity Pre-Sale. Want to shop even sooner? Sign up to volunteer and shop during our Volunteer Power Hour!

Step #6: View your sales from your computer!

Step #7: Pick up your unsold items during designated hours, or leave them to be sold at our Discount Day or donated to charity. 

Step #8: Cash in! Checks will be mailed within two weeks of the end of the sale.

The sale is open to the public: anyone is welcome to become a Seller, and anyone can shop at the sale. Sellers do NOT have to be present during the sale (but we hope you’ll come shop).

Sellers earn up to 75%* of your total sales, less a consignment fee to cover overhead costs**, which will be deducted from your check (read our newsletters and watch our Facebook page to learn ways to have your fee reduced or waived).

*The starting consignment rate is 65%. Sellers who volunteer for one shift (2 hours) will earn 70%, those who volunteer for two shifts (4 hours total) will earn 75%. You may send a friend or family member to volunteer on your behalf, and shifts don’t need to be on the same day.

**New for Spring 2017: There is a $10 consignment fee for the first 300 items consigned, consignors may sell 200 additional items for an extra $5 fee (500 items for $15). There will now be a 500 item limit for all consignors unless you have a demonstrated sell-through rate of 50% or higher. Exceptions may be made on a case-by-case basis based on the quality, pricing, and demand for the items to be sold. Please contact us with any questions- we’re happy to discuss! 

Checks for your sales, minus the fees outlined above, are mailed within two weeks of the end of the sale. (Checks will not be issued for totals under $10.)

Sellers may choose to pick up any unsold items on Saturday afternoon, or leave them to be donated to our Charity Discount Day. If a seller cannot be present at Pick-up, they may authorize someone else to pick up on their behalf with a signed permission form. 

The last day of the sale (Sunday) will be a Charity Discount Day to clear out unsold inventory. Sellers will NOT earn a portion of these sales.

DONATIONS ARE ALSO ACCEPTED. We can pick up large donations, and all contributions are tax-deductible. In addition to gently used children's items, we also need donations of shopping bags, snacks and drinks for volunteers, and we are always looking for store fixtures and shelving as the event grows.
