Thanks for considering consigning your items with River Bend Kids! Here’s some important information to get you started.
Step 1: Register as a Consignor. When registering for the first time, you will receive a consignor number.
Step 2: Enter your inventory in the Consignor Homepage. Click here for step by step instructions.
Step 3: Tag your items. All items will need to be pre-printed on heavy weight card stock. Tips for tagging items can be found here.
Step 4: Deliver tagged items to the venue the evening before the event. You may also volunteer at the event as a way to increase your proceeds from the sale. Please sign up to volunteer here.
No. Volunteering is your choice. Your only obligation as a consignor is the pick up and drop off of your items. The event is a “pop-up” store. All your items will be organized by category (clothing will be placed on racks by size, toys will be on 8 foot tables, books on portable shelving etc.)
Consignors earn a minimum of 65% of their sales.
Consignors who volunteer for a shift of four hours earn 70% and are invited to shop before the public sale.
Consignors who volunteer for two shifts of four hours earn 75% and are invited to shop before the public sale.
River Bend Kids is looking for gently used baby gear, maternity wear, toys, children’s books, and LOTS of children’s clothing. Items include but are not limited to:
Please make sure that all items are clean and laundered (if applicable). Please make sure to do you due diligence to make sure that none of the items you are selling have had safety recalls. Consumer Product Safety Commission is a great way to check for recalls.
Yes, please see What Not to Consign for a list of items that we will not accept at our events.
Currently there are no limits to the amount of items you can consign however, please consider quality over quantity! You probably do not want to end up with a bunch of unsold items that were either really out of style or in an undesirable condition.
At the end of the sale, all consignors have the option to either pick up their unsold items OR donate them. Donations of this sale will go directly to MountainStar Family Relief Nursery or Friends of the Children. Any items not being donated will need to be picked up by 9pm on the last day of the sale- NO EXCEPTIONS will be given!
Yes. However, we will be posting sales price suggestions in order to keep the pricing of the event cohesive. We understand that some items are more high-end than others and we have some guidelines for those as well. See our Pricing Guidelines.
Consignment registration will require a $15 payment up front. This money will go towards the cost of the venue rental and is non-refundable. (**If in the event that River Bend Kids is not allowed to operate due to COVID-19, a full refund on registration will be issued to all consignors. We do not foresee this happening as we have taken every measure to ensure that we are fully compliant with the Governor’s orders.)
As a consignor, you will enter all items into the Consignor Portal. Once you enter an item, it will be assigned a number and will be tracked through our system. It will be your responsibility to make sure all items are tagged properly (printed on card stock and attached using a clothing tagging gun).
Consignors can purchase a tagging gun online. Amazon sells them for approx. $10. You can hold onto it for all future sales. Here is an example. Or, River Bend Kids will have a very LIMITED amount of tagging guns that can be checked out in exchange for a deposit.
Drop-off appointments will be available through the Consignor Portal and will be dropped off directly at the venue. More information will be emailed to each consignor as the event date approaches.
No. River Bend Kids will have hangers available! This is one less thing consignors have to worry about.
We estimate that all sellers will be paid within 3-7 days after the event.
