How do I become a consignor?
In order to consign, you need to register. You can do that on the Consignor Registration page of this website. Once you have paid your registration fee, you will receive instructions on how to get your Consignor number and all the information you need to begin tagging your items.
Why is there a registration fee?
Your $10.00 registration fee helps cover the cost of the location rental, advertising, insurance, display racks, supplies, etc.
How do I tag my items?
Once you have registered and received your Consignor #, you can begin tagging your items. Detailed information is available under “Tagging Instructions” on how to tag, hang, zip tie & tape your items before bringing them to the sale. Here are the top highlights:
- All clothing must be washed and hung on wire hangers and sorted by size and gender before coming to the sale.
- All toys requiring batteries must have batteries (we will check them at your drop-off appointment.)
- Any items that plug in will be checked at drop-off.
- Each item must have a detailed product information tag attached to it. You will enter your items into the computer and print out bar-coded tags on 67lb paper at home.
Tots To Teens, LLC wants to ensure that all the products at the sale are clean and in working order. Therefore, we have detailed instructions on how to prepare your items. Before you decide to consign, we highly recommend you read more about tagging so you are familiar with the process.

NOTE TO CONSIGNORS: Please do not tape over the bottom barcode on your tags! In order to speed up the checkout lines we will be cutting tags and this will slow down the process
Who sets the prices?
Each consignor chooses how they want to price their items. We recommend pricing your items 25-40% of original retail. That being said, the lower you price your items, the better they will sell. You should think about what you would pay for the items if you were buying them. We do have a Pricing Guideline – you may choose to follow this guideline or not – please do what is most comfortable for you.
At the sale, there is no negotiating the prices – the price on your tag is what it will be sold for. However, the last day of the sale is the 50% off sale day. It is up to you as the consignor to decide if you would like your items to be discounted on that day. When making your product tags online, you may choose which, if any, items you would like to be discounted.
How do I register for a drop-off slot?
Just click on the “Tag Your Items Here” button on our web page and login to your account. Here you will find a link to register for your drop off time.
You can also login here: Drop-off Appointments
When do I bring my items to the sale?
Upon registering, you will also be sent instructions on how to sign up for a drop-off appointment to bring your items to the sale. Drop-off is typically the evening before the sale starts. Drop-off should take you about 20-30 minutes. We will inspect all the items you bring to make sure there aren’t any stains, rips, tears, and that all items are working.
What other consignor benefits are there?
As a consignor, you get to shop the private pre-sale!!!! The pre-sale is the a couple hours before the Public Sale – so you get first pick of the merchandise!
What happens to unsold items?
You may pick up your items after the sale is ended (times vary per location but are typically evening after the sale ends and/or the day after the sale ends). If you do not want to or are not able to pick up your items on the designated times, your items will be donated for you. You must decide to donate or not to donate each item when making your product tags online.
Tots To Teens Consignors have donated tens of thousands of items to the Lil Iguanas Safety Foundation over the years.
When do I get paid???
Through the awesome online tagging program, you will be able to see which of your items sold each night after the sale is over. Consignor checks are mailed to you within a week after the sale.
If you’re a consignor who volunteers at least one shift, you will also get an additional 5% profit for the items you sell, increasing what you make on each item to 65%. Volunteer for two shifts and add 10% to your earnings for a total of 75% of all of your sales. You may volunteer for a maximum of three work shifts per sale. Please visit our Volunteers page to see what you will be doing.
