Frequently Asked Questions...
First of all - thanks for checking this page! Kudos to you! Second - your questions help build the best FAQ we can have! Should you should still have a question after reviewing the website and reading the FAQ let us know. We will find an answer and get back to you quickly - perhaps we will even add your question (and the answer!) to this page so that other patrons have information right at their fingertips!
Is it worth it to volunteer?
Do you like earning more money? Do you like shopping all the deals first? If you answered yes to either of those questions, then the obvious answer is YES, it is totally worth it to volunteer! Besides all the fun, kid free time and camaraderie you’ll be sure to rack up some deals, pad your earnings check!
Is it better to price a little higher and discount or lower the price and not discount?
You should always price so that your items sell! Overpricing an item in anticipation of a half price sale day will only mean it doesn’t sell fast! Price your items to move…you don’t want to bring those items back home! Find a middle ground price and donate. (Did you know some shoppers will pass over items on half price day because they don’t feel like they are “getting a deal” if it isn’t marked half off?)
Is half price even worth it?
Half price hours (especially early on!) is your ticket to some really sweet deals. Here’s why – the racks have cleared out a little, so you might find things that weren’t seen before. Maybe you weren’t willing to pay $8 for a dress on day one, but now during half price day it is a steal at $4! Do yourself a favor and take a peak!
What's the best way to shop early?
Volunteering is the best way to shop our events early. Not only will you shop first (meaning you will see some of the best deals we have to offer) you will also earn yourself a bigger check if consigning! If you have a crazy schedule (and what mama doesn’t!?), make sure to sign up early so you find a time slot that works best for you!
What should I bring to the sale?
We offer bags for shopping. You can bring a stroller to haul a kid (or all your loot!) - don't worry - our isles are plenty BIG! Bring cash (or Visa, MasterCard or Discover for payment). Please avoid bringing food or drink.
How do I price my items?
We have created a pricing guideline for our consignors. You can find that document right here... KIDSENSE PRICING GUIDE
Can you please clarify what bedding I can/can not consign?
Great question! What we accept and don't accept is based off of PA bedding and upholstery laws. Here are the guidelines that have been set forth:
- We DO accept single layer blankets and bedding such as receiving blankets, fleece blankets and sheets.
- We DO NOT accept anything with 2 or more layers such as quilts and comforters.
- We DO accept sleeping bags (We will need to spray as per PA upholstery and bedding laws.)
What items can you expect to find at the KidSense Sale?
If a kid uses it from birth to age eighteen chances are – we have it!
Each season is different, however, in general you will find our racks filled with seasonally appropriate clothing. We carry sizes ranging from infant to teenager for both boys and girls. We also have all the required childhood “gear” such as highchairs, strollers, bouncy seats and pack-n-plays. We have a maternity section with all seasons of clothing. You will find infant necessities such as diaper bags, bathing and feeding items. We have toys…man oh man do we have toys! You will find books, puzzles, crafts, art supplies and all sorts of things to entertain. We accept all ride on toys and out door equipment including bikes and wagons. All of this comes at a significant savings over retail!
