Prepare your items
Spending a little extra time getting your items ready will make a HUGE difference on your profits.
CLOTHES – Clothes that are clean, pressed, and smell fresh, with buttons and zippers closed, look better and generally sell first.
- Clothes should be put on wire hangers (wire hangers take up less room on the racks than plastic hangers). Hangers should be positioned so that the top of the hanger forms a question mark when looking at the front of the garment.
- Sets tend to sell better than separate items. So match up separates if you can.
- Pants, jeans, overalls and shorts should be folded and price tags easily accessible.
- Onesies – Hang your onesies on wire hangers.
- Starch, a little bleach, an iron, or a needle and thread work wonders!
SHOES – Only sell shoes that are like new, with little wear and tear, and clean them thoroughly.
- Tie shoes together or place them in a clear plastic zip-lock bag and attach your price tag with clear packing tape (Scotch tape and masking tape tend not to hold so well).
BOOKS – Attach your price tag to back of the book with clear packing tape.
TOYS & EQUIPMENT – Remove all dirt, grime and marks to furniture, large toys and outdoor play equipment.
- Put new batteries in all toys – people will try out the toys and working ones will sell quickly.
- Attach your price tag to toys and equipment with clear packing tape (which holds better than scotch tape or masking tape).
- Make sure all parts are included with puzzles, toys, and games.
- Tip: place any small parts/pieces in zip-lock bags, then securely attach the bag to the main part. If possible, include instruction manuals (download from Internet).

Step 4: Drop off your items
Drop off your items on April 26 between 5pm and 8pm.
- Drop off will take about 10-15 minutes. You will be asked to place your items directly onto the selling floor. If you separate your clothes by size before you come, this will go quickly.
- Bring a SASE – You need to bring a Self-Addressed, Stamped Envelope (A10 size) when you drop off your items. Put your consigner number in the return address area. We will mail your check to you in this envelope.
- Have clothes on hangers – All clothes (except pants, jeans, overalls, skirts and shorts) should be on wire hangers before dropping off. Pants, jeans, overalls and shorts should be folded.
- Batteries – Toys and equipment with batteries sell first. Shoppers like to try before they buy!
- Clean & test your items – Clean and test toys and equipment before dropping off.
- Price tags – All items must have your price tag securely attached BEFORE you arrive. No handwritten price tags can be accepted.
- Pre-sort clothes by age– All clothing needs to be sorted by size and gender when you arrive at drop off.
- Helpful tip – Put a rubber band around the hangers for items that are all the same size and gender. For example, group all girls’ size 6 months and all boys’ size 6 months separately.
- Pre-assemble furniture & equipment – Assemble items such as swings and highchairs to avoid losing pieces and parts.
- Larger furniture such as cribs should not be assembled but they must be accompanied by any necessary hardware.
- Helpful tip – Tape a picture to unassembled items such as cribs to help shoppers know what they look like.
- Recalls – Be aware of recent recalls (visit CPSC.gov for the most current list)
The LexFUN! Consignment Sale has a reputation for high quality merchandise so there are restrictions on the items accepted. Please don’t be offended if items are returned to you during drop off or removed from the sale if found to be damaged. Items may be denied for any of the following reasons: car seat more than 5 years old, stains, tears, missing buttons, non-functional zippers, missing parts, or items we do not sell.
Step 5: Get Paid
- A check will be mailed to each consignor several weeks after the sale with individual proceeds. Consignors will receive 50% of the proceeds from their items that sell. LexFUN!’s portion of the proceeds will go to its Preschool Scholarship and Community Fund.
- At the end of the sale, all unsold items will be donated to charity and will not be returned to individual sellers.
- You must bring a self-addressed, stamped envelope (A10 size) when you drop off your items. Put your consigner number in the return address area. We will mail your check to you in this envelope.
