Do you have an Item Limit for consignors?

We do not have total item limits in Tacoma. We encourage you to bring your best items so that you sell a high percentage of what you bring.

Incorrect labels will need to be redone at check-in. You will need to sign a Release of Guarantee form.

Can I bring my spouse or mother with me to the Pre-Sale?

You're welcome to bring a guest of your choice to the Pre-Sale! Happy shopping!!

Can I bring children to the PreSale?

We strongly suggest that you NOT bring your children to the PreSale. Just bring a tape measure and their measurements and enjoy a mom's night out!

How Should I Price My Items?

We suggest you set the price at 25-30% of the retail value of the item. Baby Equipment, Furniture and Large Indoor/Outdoor Toys usually sell for more and are in high demand. We have an abundance of 0-6 month sizes, so they must be priced competitively in order to sell. Maternity and Junior clothing are not shopped as heavily, so price these competitively, also. Please check out the pricing guide available on this website for tips.

How much does it cost?

There is a $10 Consignor Fee that will be deducted from your check at the end of the event.

Can I just give you my stuff?
