No, any items you do not wish to discount may be marked with a "ND" on the tag. See tagging instructions for details.
No. There is no limit to the number of items you may consign. We accept items on a first-come-first-serve basis, and they must meet the acceptance policy of Kidz Shoppe. There is, however, a minimum of 30 accepted items to participate in the sale. We reserve the right to limit the number of items if space becomes limited.
No, if you choose to donate them you simply leave them at the sale and we take care of the rest. If you would like your items back, you will be required to pick them up during Unsold Item Pick-Up.
We will do our best to keep tabs on every item that comes through our doors. However, we cannot be held responsible for items lost before, during or after the sale.
Upon registration Kidz Shoppe will provide you with instructions on tagging. You may choose the print at home method or have us mail you barcodes that will need to be placed on index cards.
While it is encouraged, you are not required to use the template. You may download and print our tag template or complete a 3 x 5 index card with the required information in the required format.
Yes. All clothing must be dropped off to us on a WIRE hanger. One item or set per hanger.
Let us tag for you! Kidz Shoppe now provides a tagging service for those who may not have the time or knowledge to tag prior to a sale. Consignors choosing this option must register for the sale, choose “Tag My Items” as their “tagging registration option”, and select a drop-off date/time. The registration fee is $10 (same as our "Print At Home" option). We provide all tagging supplies (labels, hangers, pins, zip ties, etc.), and Consignor will receive 50% of their sales vs. 70% of their sales. Limited slots are available so sign up early. Consignors choosing this option must deliver and pick up all of their items at mutually agreeable times and locations in Elkhorn after registration has opened and before registration closes. Consignor will then bring their tagged items to be checked in to the sale at their chosen drop off date/time. Any unsold items following the sale must be picked up by Consignor during unsold item pick up time. Consignor may provide pricing guidelines and pictures/details of larger items so those do not need to be transported for tagging (tags for large items will be provided to Consignor to apply those specific tags prior to drop off).
Yes, each consignor is responsible for putting their own items out in the designated areas. Please plan your time accordingly.
Login to the Consignor Portal and pick a new time.
Checks will be ready for pick up during Unsold Item Pick-Up. If you choose not to pick up your items, we will mail you a check and donation slip by close of business that day.
We need volunteers to help with check-in and check-out, setup and teardown, organizing the merchandise, placing signs around town, food and drink, social media promotion, tagging services, and more as the need arises. Volunteers will be placed where they are most needed, so roles could change throughout your shift. You will not be expected to do anything you do not feel capable of.
Yes, spouses, family members (13 and older) may work and contribute their hours to you. We welcome additional help!
Yes, you can continue to shop after 3 pm if you are not volunteering on the pre-sale day. Volunteers may also continue to shop during the public sales, provided it is outside of their scheduled volunteer time.
No, you must work the minimum number of hours during peak times to receive the higher percentage of sales. Our highest need for volunteers are during our peak days/times.
We understand that sometimes the unexpected can prevent you from working your scheduled shift. Our volunteers must be dependable for our sale to remain a success. To avoid losing your volunteer benefits, you may find a replacement to work your shift (friend, family, other volunteer not scheduled at that date/time). You may lose out on a higher % of earnings depending on your total volunteer hours worked.
Volunteers, consignors, first-time parents, foster families, daycare providers, preschools, homeschoolers, first responders, and military are welcome to shop the Pre-Sale with one guest. A Pre-Sale Pass is required for admission.
Please note: Daycare Providers and Preschools are required to advertise for the sale in exchange for a Pre-Sale Pass. Please contact email@example.com for more information.
Consignors will receive their Pre-Sale pass at check-in. First time mom's, daycare providers, etc. will receive their pass via email after their request is submitted and approved. Non-Consigning volunteers should contact us directly to make arrangements for a pre-sale pass.
Yes, children are welcome at the sale, but please use your best judgement when bringing them. This is a large facility with a lot of attendees. There is no childcare provided onsite. Children are not allowed to play with toys at the sale as items are the property of our consignors and if broken, you will be required to pay for them.
