Being a consignor at Wild Child Consignment is easy and convenient and there is not a start up fee to consign! There are currently over 1,600 active consignors! There are two Open Drop Off periods per year for clothing (mid Feb thru March Spring/Summer clothing; Aug/Sept-Fall/Winter clothing). Just follow the steps below and plan to spend approximately 20 minutes for your drop off. First time consignors will receive their consignor number and sign up in person at the store. There is a fully stocked, gated playroom for kids to play in while you shop or wait for your drop off to be processed. Here’s how it works:
Excellent condition and "new with tags" children's clothing (see accepted brands below), toys, furniture, and accessories from size newborn to size 16, as well as Mens size (Nike, Under Armour, Adidas, Hollister, and American Eagle) and Women's size mall brands (PINK, American Eagle, Forever 21, Hollister). Child related gear, furniture, equipment, and accessories are accepted as long as it is in NEW or LIKE NEW condition. Bedding is no longer accepted EXCEPT crib sheets and pack n play sheets. Sometimes there will be items that do not sell well or items that the shop is overstocked on. Please understand that customers’ preferences are used as a guideline during the selection process.

Review the info below to help prepare your items prior to bringing them. Thank you!
1. All items must be LIKE NEW or NEW and completely free of stains and pet hair, and have no rips, excessive wear, tears, or pilling and may not smell like cigarette smoke.
2. All items must be freshly laundered—within the season of being brought in.
3. All children's items must be folded neatly into a laundry basket, or sturdy cardboard box (diaper boxes with cut out “handles” work great) that is light enough to be easily lifted above your head. Special occasion outfits (party dresses, etc.) can be brought in on hangers. PLEASE NO PLASTIC BAGS. This will ensure that your items stay neat and wrinkle free.
4. Please make sure that all buttons are snapped/buttoned and all zippers are zipped.
5. Please remove any yard sale or resale tags. “New from store” tags should remain on items whenever possible.
6. It is helpful if you separate boys’ clothing from girls’ clothing in your bin/box.
7. Please wash removable fabric pieces before bringing in.
8. Toys and other non-clothing items must be clean and in complete working order, with no broken pieces. All pieces and working batteries must be present. Please bring the original box and packaging if you have it as it will help your items to sell more quickly!
All items must meet today's safety standards. No recalled items will be accepted. You can check for item recalls online at www.cpsc.gov.
All items are on consignment, which means that you will receive a portion of the sale once your item(s) sell(s) (40-50% plus additional discounts if you use your money as store-credit to make purchases!). You can check your account at any time by clicking on the "Consignor Account Login" box at the top of this page and using the consignor number that was issued to you when you signed your Consignor Agreement. You can choose to use your money in the store as store credit (and receive an additional discount off your total purchase!), or cash/check/Zelle can be issued anytime! You are welcome to pick up your money any day that the shop is open or send an email to the store with your first/last name and current address if you would like a check to be mailed. Zelle is the preferred form of payment. Zelle is used directly from bank to bank from within most bank websites (not an outside app), is deposited into your account within minutes, and reduces paper.
There are 2 "Open Drop Off" periods per year at Wild Child. Spring/Summer items are accepted during the month of February/March. Most Spring/Summer clothing will be priced during the months of April/June. Fall/Winter items are accepted August/September. Most Fall/Winter clothing will be priced during the months of October-December. Toys/Books/Games/Etc. are priced on an as needed basis. Items dropped off outside of the "open drop off" periods will be priced on an as needed basis. The pricing/displaying process is done by CATEGORY, so you may see some of your items show up on your account, while others may have not been priced yet. Everything is eventually priced/displayed. If you do not see an item on your account when you log in, it just means that it has not been priced yet. There is an average of 10,000 items accepted and priced during each drop off period. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
Items stay on your account until they sell. Some clothing such as holiday apparel is displayed seasonally. Items may be held from one season to the next, in which case, they will continue to be tagged under your consignor number when they are placed back on the sales floor. If you are contacted via email to pick up any unsold items or specified items that are not able to be accepted during drop off, please pick up your items within 1 week of being contacted. If you do not wish to pick up items after receiving an email, or do not contact the shop within 1 week of receiving an email, items will become the property of Wild Child Consignment and may be donated to a local children's charity.
I look forward to a long and mutually profitable partnership with you and thank you for your business!
