Register to Consign
All consignors are required to pre-register and choose a drop off time.
Seller ID #s (aka consignor #s) are given after you register to be a consignor.
Your seller ID number is the same for each sale. It does not change.
Schedule Drop Off
Once registration opens, you will select a drop off time to deliver your items to Kidz Klozet. Feel free to wait as your items are checked or you may drop and run without waiting but if any items are unacceptable, even highlighted yellow, they will be donated and not returned to you. Please print your barcodes from home as instructed above under "Tagging". Should you need Kidz Klozet to print your barcodes, please order them above under "Tagging" and you will be given a "batch number". Barcode pickup for fall/winter sale is scheduled for Saturday 9/18 from 9-noon and Tuesday 9/21 from 5-7pm. You may also pick up barcodes when you drop off your items but please be prepared to wait as it will be very busy.
Consign 10 or more items with us and you can attend the consignor presale. No children, strollers or wagons are allowed.
Kidz Klozet consignors receive 60% of their sales with no additional fees. Volunteers that work ONE (4) hour shift receive an additional 5% of their sales (65%) and shop early. Volunteers that work TWO or more (4) hour shifts will receive an additional 10% of their sales (70%) and shop first.

More Important Info
We accept a maximum of 150 items per consignor. If you have 100-150 items you may not drop off for anyone other than yourself. Someone can drop off for you, but they must only drop off your items.
If you are consigning a car seat, you will be asked to fill out a car seat waiver. Make sure the car seat has not expired. If there is no expiration date on the seat there will be a manufacture date. Google to see how long your car seat is good for. Include the expiration date on your index card! Please also check https://www.nhtsa.gov/recalls to ensure that the car seat has not been recalled.
Absolutely no recalled items! Visit www.cpsc.gov to make sure none of your items have been recalled. Any recalled item that has been dropped off will be pulled from the floor and disposed of immediately. No recalled items will be returned to the consignor. Many recalls have simple solutions. In many cases, you can call the manufacturer to get “the fix” sent to you for free and repair the product making it safe and sellable. If you are consigning a recalled item that has been “fixed” according to the manufacturer, make sure you note it on your index card.
If you’re planning to consign a crib, remember that we only accept cribs that were manufactured on or after June 28, 2011, in order to comply with the CPSC safety regulations. To adhere to this law, we will only be able to accept cribs that either: A) have the manufacture date on the crib, showing it to be manufactured on or after June 28, 2011, or B) have a Certificate of Compliance from the company which manufactured the crib stating that the crib is certified to meet law 16 CFR 1219 or 16 CFR 1220.
NO ITEMS WITH STAINS, TEARS, SMELLS, PET HAIR or EXCESSIVE WEAR WILL BE ACCEPTED! Examine your clothes carefully in “good” light. Please do not be insulted if the person checking your clothes and shoes reject any of your items if they do not meet quality standards.
We practice the Golden Rule here at Kidz Klozet.
“Do unto others as you would have others do unto you.”
Only consign items you would purchase yourself.
Preparing Items to Sell
It may seem a long time away, but don’t let it sneak up on you! Develop your consigning plan today. As you take down your out of season clothes to make room for the new season, begin the great divide:
Worthy of Consigning-Gently Used (no stains, tears, fading, smells, pet hair, excessive wear, no broken pieces)
Worthy of Donating (still wearable, some fading, good for play, etc.)
Worthy of Taking to the Garbage Can (no definition needed!)
The majority of our shoppers really know their brands and prices! So, if you want your items to sell, be reasonable. Consider the condition of your item when deciding the asking price. Ask yourself what you would pay for that item in the condition it is in.
There are many different brands of stain removers out there…some of the best we know of are OxiClean Baby, OxiClean Versatile, Clorox Bleach Pen, Carbona, Mother’s Miracle and Tide Stain Sticks.
Innovative Stain Removal Methods
Tilex Bathroom Cleaner works wonders on white clothes with mildew stains. It contains bleach so stay away from dark clothes.
Greased Lightning, sold with household cleaners. Spray directly on the stain, don’t be alarmed if the clothing changes color, it will return to original color after washing. Most stains will come out. For difficult stains repeat.
Grandma's Secret Spot Remover (available at WalMart) works well on grease stains.
Fresh protein stains can often be removed by soaking and agitating in cold water before washing. If hot water is used first, it can cook the protein, causing coagulation between the fibers in the yarns of the fabric, making the stain more difficult to remove.
Never put a stained fabric in the dryer, the heat will set the stain. Hang to dry and then start the treatment process again if the stain has not completely gone away.
