1. Why are children not allowed at the presales? *back to the top

4. Define junior clothing sizes. *back to the top
Junior clothing are trendy clothes worn by teenagers. Teens tend to wear certain name brands such as those listed on the “PREP” page. Please check that to make sure that your items are acceptable. Clothing does not have to be name brand, but it does have to be “teen approved”. We do not accept women’s clothing. If your teen won’t wear it, please don’t send it.
5. What items are not accepted at the fall sale? *back to the top
Bathing suits or sleeveless items. We will accept short sleeves and shorts as the weather in Florida tends to stay warm through Christmas.
6. What items are not accepted at the spring sale? *back to the top
Coats, sweaters, hats, gloves, mittens, scarves, sweat suits, or any heavy fabrics such as wool or corduroy. We will accept lightweight long sleeve dress shirts, jeans, and dress pants.
7. Do all baby items need to be on hangers? *back to the top
All clothing must be hung on hangers, it sells better if the customer can see it.
8. How do I hang sets? *back to the top
Hang shirt on the hanger and the shorts, shirt, or pants, on the back. Do not hang one under the other.
9. How do I package shoes? *back to the top
Tie the shoes together with the shoelaces, or ribbon or string. Tag should be pinned to the buckle or shoelace.
10. How do I package my bedding? *back to the top
Bedding sets should be in the clear plastic bag that it came in if at all possible. If that bag is not available, another clear plastic bag may be used. Put all bedding items that belong together in the same bag and seal it with clear packing tape. Tape your consignor tag to the outside of the bag.
11. How do I package my books? *back to the top
If you have a set of books, they may be tied together. DO NOT PLACE BOOKS IN PLASTIC BAGS!
12. How do I package my puzzles? *back to the top
The best way is to use saran wrap and secure it with packaging tape. Puzzles need to have all pieces.
13. Do I need batteries? *back to the top
Yes. All items that need batteries must have batteries in them. The item has a better chance of selling if it has batteries in it.
14. Why no straight pins or tagging guns? *back to the top
Straight pins are not safe to use and will not keep the tag on the item securely. Tagging guns do not hold tags securely to items and cause the tags to get tangled and often rip apart from the item.
15. Why no paper tags? *back to the top
Paper tags tear easily and tend to get separated from the item.
16. What does DO NOT ALTER TAG mean? *back to the top
We will not accept tags that have crossed out consignor numbers or changed prices. Your tags must be clearly marked. The barcode is what tells our system the information for that item. If you alter the tag by writing on it but the barcode is not altered in the system, the computer will read the barcode and enter the “old” information.
17. Can I CHECK-IN more than once? *back to the top
Yes and No. All of your clothing items must be checked in at the same time. However you may bring larger items at a separate time as needed. No additional “CHECK-IN” time is needed.
18. Are limits to how much I can bring? *back to the top
You must consign at least 30 ITEMS to be a considered a consignor, with a limit of 150 clothing items. Be picky about what you bring. Maternity is limited to 10 pieces and shoes are limited to 5 pairs. There is no limit on other items.
19. Can a friend pick up my unsold items? *back to the top
Yes, a friend can pick up your unsold items, but he/she will need to sign for your items.
20. What happens to my items at the end of the sale? *back to the top
Unsold items that are not picked up become the property of mom2mom and will be donated at the discretion of mom2mom.
21. When will I receive my check? *back to the top
We try to get checks out as soon as possible. Checks will be mailed no later than two weeks after the end of the sale.
