By doing consignment, we can offer a larger percentage to you for your amazing things. It also encourages our consignors to bring us their items in the best condition because that guarantees the most likely to sell.

How long do my items stay on the sales floor?2018-04-03T16:07:55+00:00

Used items like clothing, books and toys, stay on the floor for 30 days at regular price. Then are on the floor for 30 days at 25% off, and then proceed to a clearance rack at 60% off for an additional 30 days. After that we donate to a charity of our choice. Children’s equipment will be reduced by 10% per  month until it is sold. Handmade items stay (without markdown) on the floor or get returned to their artists.

When can I drop things off?2019-10-31T18:44:52+00:00

If it is between March and December, intake is during regular business hours, no appointments necessary.

Consignment is a way to sell your items with no upfront cost to you or us. Once an item is sold, we both make a portion of the sale. This also means all items remain yours until sold.

We named the store after Sarah’s super sweet children. They often spend time at the store, so come on in and meet them.
