Dropping Off

You are welcome to drop off items at either or both of our two pre-sale drop-off times:

  • Sunday, August 19, 1pm-5pm
  • Tuesday, September 4, 2pm-8pm

You do not need an appointment to drop off.

 Park in the lot with our Kids EveryWEAR banner above the door at the old Sears, to the left of JCPenney. This is the only entrance for the sale.

NOTE CHANGE TO CLOTHING DROP-OFF!

Please enter the building and hang them on the rolling racks near the Sears entrance by GENDER only. Our volunteer staff will check for stained/off-season items and then you will hang them on the main racks. It is very important that you bring them sorted and banded by size and gender. Please place all other items on the sales' floor yourself and then check back for any stained/off-season items and bring them home.

What to do in advance

  • Group all clothing items by gender and size. Place a rubber band around the hangers of each group. Layer rubber-banded groups in boxes, keeping girls and boys separate.
  • Check each tag for a PRICE!
  • Bring an unlabeled large cardboard box to leave in the stockroom. We use these for Sort.
  • If you are bringing a crib, you must assemble it at the sale. Please bring any needed tools. NO DROP-SIDE CRIBS!!!
  • Make certain you have pre-registered online and have received e-mail confirmation with this sale's dates. Hotmail and AOL users often do not get their email confirmation. Be sure you have kidseverywear.com in your safe senders list. If you lose your email confirmation, register again and print it.
  • Double check that items have been properly hung and tagged.
  • Double check that tags and pieces are secure.
  • Double check that tag info is accurate and complete.
  • Pack an emergency kit with blank tags, pens, packing tape, cable ties and safety pins, just in case you arrive and find a tag has wiggled loose!
  • Bringing a wagon, luggage cart, rolling suitcase, stroller, rolling rack or dolly (labelled with your name and cell # in case you leave it behind) will help you transport large quantities of items from your car to the racks and shelves. 

Drop-off procedure

  1. If you have large, bulky toys or infant equipment to unload, pull up to curb and quickly unload just those items to the curb.
  2. Move car to a designated mall parking spot immediately. The mall does tow illegally parked cars at drop-off! Do NOT block the fire lanes
  3. Go to REGISTRATION CHECK-IN just inside the entrance.
    1. BEFORE putting any of your items out, verify your code on our Check-in Sheets against one of your tags! Then HIGHLIGHT your row of information if all is correct.
    2. If your name is missing, your CODE IS WRONG, or any information is missing or incorrect, please see GAIL or the check-in volunteer.
    3. If you have all white tags, show your items to get your donation receipt and early shopping pass.
  4. Hang children's clothing items on racks by gender at the mall entrance. We will check for stained/off-season items. If you mistakenly brought stained/off-season items, you may pick them up when you leave and take them home. Otherwise they will be donated before the beginning of the sale.
  5. If you bring a carseat, you MUST write the expiration date across the top of the tag with a thick red marker like this: EXP 10/22. We will check all carseats at the mall entrance.
  6. Place all items other than children's hanging clothing items in designated places on sales floor. Racks, bins, and shelves are clearly labeled and there are ceiling signs and volunteers available to direct you. This part goes much more smoothly if you have pre-sorted items as recommended!
  7. Cribs, portable cribs, swings and ALL furniture must be assembled by you to display effectively. Unassembled items may be removed from the sales floor.
  8. Stack empty, unlabeled box in the stockroom.
  9. Once your items are in the proper spots and assembled as required, exit quickly! No browsing!
  10. As you exit, our staff will check your bags/luggage/bins as a security measure. We know you, as a consignor, will understand.

A few deals you might be interested in at Drop-off. Cash only:

  • White cardstock to tag and donate unsold leftovers next sale will be available for cash purchase (20 sheets for $1).
  • 4" zipties will be available for purchase 100/pack for $1.

Helpful Hints for Drop-off:

  • PLEASE keep your children with you at all times! Unsupervised children will be given an espresso and a puppy!
  • Tagging lots of books? Pre-sorting into the categories at the bottom of our Preparing Merchandise page will make for a quick drop off! Because we sort our books so carefully, we sell a much higher percentage of them than other sales! At drop-off, you will put your books in bins by these categories. We will shelve them for you. This means we have the MOST AMAZING BOOK AREA! No time to sort your books? Bring them in a box you can leave behind and leave the box of books with our amazing volunteers to shelve them for you.
  • Boutique Brands hang on the regular clothing racks by size! Please continue to designate them with the word "boutique" written across the top of the tag and add curling ribbon to the hanger so that customers who prefer these brands can find them easily!
  • HANG Juniors and Men's clothing on the designated racks! Do NOT place them with the largest girl's or boy's sizes!
  • Juniors, Ladies' and Young Men's sizing should follow the exact size written on the inside label. Unlike children's clothing for which you should use only numeric sizing, mark your tags for these teen/grown up items with XS, S, M, L, XL, XXL or the numeric size AS WRITTEN ON THE ITEM'S LABEL and add the word Jrs., Ladies' or Men's in front of the size. Please do not make up numeric sizing for Jrs., Women's or Men's clothing! Also, men's pants should be labeled with the waist and length eg. 30x32. Remember that we DO NOT accept men's business attire but only young, trendy brands designed for teenagers.
  • Shoes hang from zip ties on racks. PLEASE bring paperclips to hang each pair of your shoes! Have extras? Leave them for other consignors by putting them on the shoe racks in the small boxes on each pole. If your bank gives away paper clips, would you collect them for us? Thanks!
  • Boys & Girls clothing will be separated by gender and size - the sizes contained in each area will be clearly signed. This makes for much less congested shopping and more rack space. We hope you enjoy!
  • Boy accessories (belts, socks, undies, hats...) go in the corresponding boys clothing area, according to size.
  • Girl accessories (hairbows, undies, tights, socks...) go in the corresponding girls clothing area, according to size.
  • Tops and shorter items will hang on the top racks, and pants/dresses and longer items will hang on the bottom racks in our Fall sale. In our Spring/Summer sale, shorts hang on the top rack and shirts and longer items hang on the bottom rack, so group your clothing items accordingly.
  • Items with a size range written on the label, i.e. 3-6 months, 6-9 months, 12-18 months or 18-24 months will hang with the LARGEST size in the range. So Old Navy jeans labeled 6-12 month will hang on the 12-month rack.
  • 24 months and 2T items will be hung on the same rack.
  • Roller Skates, Rollerblades, and Ice Skates display with Sports Equipment. Athletic Cleats display with the appropriate size and gender shoes.
  • Dance leotards hang by size on the racks with all clothing.
  • Costumes hang by size on the racks with all clothing. If we can, we offer round racks for costumes at our Fall sale.
  • Heavy winter coats at the Fall sale hang with clothing by size.
  • Nursing-specific shirts hang separately from other maternity wear, so sort and band them separately as you prepare for drop-off.
  • Ladies/Jr's items selling space is quite limited. Items which meet guidelines perfectly will be displayed. Items which clearly do not meet guidelines on our Ladies/Jr's page will be returned to you at drop-off or donated if left. Thank you for your attention to these guidelines and understanding of our limitations!
  • Hang pictures on the nails on the walls for best display. Be sure your tag is on the FRONT of pictures.
