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 for us 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. We will give back to you any items which are recalled. 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 we can issue cash/check/Zelle anytime! You are welcome to pick up your money any day that we are 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. We can also Zelle you your money, which is our preferred form of payment. Zelle is used directly from bank to bank (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. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
Items stay on your account until they sell. Clothing is displayed seasonally. We may hold unsold items 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, we ask that you please pick up your items within 1 week of being contacted. If you do not wish to pick up items after receiving an email from us, or do not contact us within 1 week of receiving an email, items will become the property of Wild Child Consignment and may be donated to one of our favorite children's charities.
We look forward to a long and mutually profitable partnership with you and thank you for your business!
