If you don’t know consignment, just wait-you’re about to be hooked!
Consignment is the best way to recycle your GREAT kid’s clothes, toys, equipment, furniture, and MUCH more.
Remember the old Carters slogan- “If they would only stay little til their Carters wear out.” We only wish they could! Let’s face it, our kids are growing out of their clothes way before they have the chance to wear them out. Not to mention growing tired of their toys and they’re still like new.
We are your perfect solution!
Many of our moms use our service as sort of a swap shop. They SELL their outgrown kids stuff, essentially use that money to then they BUY their kids stuff for the next season….SEE, it’s a SWAP! What a smart mom! Your husband will be singing your praises from season to season. You know how it feels when you GOT A DEAL! You can’t afford NOT to consign. Great deals on great stuff for your kids. And we’re recession-proof!
STOP! Don’t clear out your garage or pack up those items for “one of these days we’re going to have a yard sale.”
This is your solution!
A consignment sale will bring much higher prices than at yard sales!
How was it the last time you had a yard sale? You had a great GAP two-piece outfit that you priced at $2 (knowing you paid over $50 in the store), just to have someone say “I’ll give you $1 for this.” It’s not only ridiculous, but it’s a waste of your time to prepare for such an event just to be insulted with such propositions. This is why YOU need consignment!
Here’s all you do:
1. Clean out your kids’ closets and toy rooms. Don’t forget maternity, ladies handbags, video games and more.
2. Hang, price and tag your items following our Tagging guidlines. (You determine the price, leaving no room to haggle.)
3. Drop off your stuff…we take it from there!
During the sale we have thousands of families who will see your items. Therefore your items are given thousands of opportunities to sell. (How many showed up at your last yard sale? How long will it take you to meet that many people or post that many pics on a Facebook online selling site)
You’ll receive 70% of the selling price from each item sold minus a $15 consignor fee. There is no way a yard sale or a consignment shop can compare! If you decide to help at the sale you can even earn that fee back.
In a consignment shop, items could remain on the shelves for months. Each time you shop L&M, everything has JUST ARRIVED! So there is always great excitement felt by our buyers. In a consignment shop, you may go in and purchase 3 to 5 pieces at a time. Shoppers in our sale know that IF THEY WANT IT – THEY BETTER BUY IT NOW because the sale only lasts a few days.
As a consignor…you take advantage of our widespread advertising, customer volume and GREAT location.
And best of all, we take care of all the details!
As a buyer…Lullabies and Mudpies has an incredible selection of quality items to choose from.
SUPER BONUS: As a consignor you earn the chance to shop before the public at our exclusive presales. Be sure to check out the volunteer page. You gain even more exclusive shopping advantages and working can serve as great “girl time”. We also love our Husband helpers they ROCK!
