General FAQ’s

If something is not on the list, just shoot us an email and we would be happy to answer any questions!

What is a seasonal children's consignment event?

Local familes sell their gently-used children’s items at our sesonal events.  The most sustainable and effective way to support local families and reduce your carbon footprint.

What is the difference between a consignment event and a garage sale or resale shop?

M2MC is NOT a garage sale, yard sale, or thrift store. We carefully inspect every item that arrives at our sale to ensure that everything is clean without stains, meets current styles and is in working order. All items are organized so that it is easy to shop.  Prices are set by their consignors and are not negotiable.

What kind of businesses do you accept as advertisers?

Any business that is geared toward women, babies, kids, or the family. We have the right to refuse any business that we feel does not represent the quality or style we encourage, or is not in line with the morals we value.

What advertising does Mom 2 Mom Consignment do for the events?

We take advantage of social media including Facebook and Instagram (many paid ads), to promote the sale. We advertise with print ads, and have been featured on local news channels. We utilize many advertising outlets within each location venue.

How do I price my items?

PRICE TO SELL! We would rather send you a large check at the end of the sale, then have a large lot of your unsold items left!  Please price as your items the same as you SHOP for your items, everyone is looking for great deals. 

How should I present my items?

Small clothing ARE TO BE HUNG on child-sized hangers, and larger clothing items ARE TO BE HUNG classic hangers. Please make sure your items are presented appropriately. DO NOT fold pants over hangers. Items that are free of wrinkles sell better, consider ironing your higher valued items!

How should I tag my items?

We’ve gathered some easy tips to help you thru this process, please click below for more information on tagging.

How do I group multiple items to be sold in a set?

Clothing items can be hung on separate hangers and then banded together, please note on item’s tag description how many items are with the set. If you choose to use safety pins, PLEASE to not damage the item you are grouping together, safety pins as well as tagging gun barbs should be placed on the INSIDE clothing size tag or INSIDE SEAM, NOT THRU THE FRONT OF THE ITEM! Please maintain the quality of your items by not placing holes on the outside of the clothing.

How do I keep shoes together?

Please tie shoes together with a piece of ribbon or zip tie. BAGS SHOULD ONLY BE USED IF THERE IS NO POSSIBLE WAY TO USE RIBBON OR ZIPTIE.

Can I print my tags on regular paper?

NO! Regular paper rips too easily and will become detached from your item. If we do not know who it belongs to, we cannot sell it. Tags should be printed on cardstock (thicker than regular paper).

What color cardstock can I use to print my tags?

White or light colors are ok. DO NOT use anything in the blue family (even light blue) as they will not scan very well.

Do I use safety pins or a tagging gun?

Either is fine! Whatever you do, please do not put holes in the items. Please attach tags to the manufacture tag or seam of the clothing.  DO NOT TAG THE FRONT OF THE ITEM WITH A TAGGING GUN, WE WILL REJECT ANY ITEMS DAMAGED BY TAGGING.
