Consignment For Baby Clothes

I’m sure you’ve been there: the pile of baby clothes keeps getting higher and higher, and all those cute outfits are starting to get buried under a sea of onesies. If your child is older than one year old, it’s time to clean up! Or if you’re expecting a new baby, this is the best time to clear out clutter—and make some cash by consigning your old stuff.

Make Money for Baby

If you’re looking for a way to make some extra money for baby, consignment may be the answer. Here are some things to know before selling your baby clothes:

  • You can make up to 100% of the price of the item when it sells. This is particularly good news if you have an older child’s clothing that no longer fits but are hesitant to part with.
  • Consignment stores are everywhere and most will give you cash right away when something sells so that you can get in another batch of clothes without waiting weeks or months for payments from buyers who purchase online through eBay and other sites where buyers bid on items instead of paying full price at a store’s counter like they would do in person by purchasing directly from a salesperson behind the register who checks IDs as well as credit cards before allowing shoppers push their shopping carts through checkout lines filled with samples from each department (e.g., children’s toys) within department stores such as Walmart or Target).
  • The best way to start making money off those adorable little outfits may be through local classified ads websites like Craigslist where people sell used items such as Tupperware containers; kitchen appliances; furniture pieces including beds made out metal frames instead wood ones which tend crack over time especially when someone sits down hard enough during sleep so that it causes pressure points along edges where joints connect together tightly enough hold weight securely without bending under pressure applied during normal use but not necessarily while sleeping due lack thereof movement while resting peacefully atop surfaces made out softer material types such as foam rubber instead metal rods which tend bend easily under extreme pressures applied over longer periods time between usage sessions so there goes my theory about how much force needed apply pressure downward force onto top surface harder than normal use might allow

A New Lease on Baby

Have you ever wondered how much money you could make by selling your baby’s old clothes? Do you have a closet full of hand-me-downs that are just sitting there, not doing anything for anyone?

If yes, then consignment is the way to go. If no, then maybe it’s time give it a try! Consignment is actually quite a simple concept: you take your gently used clothing and sell it on consignment with one of our partner companies. The partner company receives the items and sells them in their store or online. They take a commission from each sale (usually around 50%) and pay out the rest directly to you!

It’s Time To Clean Up!

You’ve got all of your baby clothes, and they’re all organized in a big, messy pile. Now it’s time to clean them up and make some money off of them!

There are two main steps you need to take when cleaning up your baby clothes: washing clothes that are dirty and sorting the rest into categories (like gender or size). Here’s how:

  • Wash anything that’s dirty by hand or machine.
  • Sort by gender (boys, girls), size (6 months, 12 months) and condition (good condition vs worn out). If the clothing is stained or ripped but otherwise in good condition, consider selling these pieces on consignment as well as at yard sales—they may be more likely to sell quickly this way!

Get Organized

There are two ways to go about organizing your baby clothes.

First, you can organize your baby clothes based on type. This way you have one area for sweaters, another for pants, and so on. As an added bonus, this method also allows you to easily find matching sets or complete outfits if someone comes in looking specifically for a certain outfit or item of clothing that they saw online when they were browsing through your inventory on consignment. You can wrap these up with tissue paper and put them in plastic bags which make great gift bags!

Second is by season or size (or both). For example: baby clothes organized by season would be spring/summer items together; winter items together; fall/spring items together…etc., while organizing by size would mean putting all newborns together (even if it’s not their actual season), all 6-9 month olds together…etc., etc.. This organization method works well because it makes sense from a customer perspective – after all we usually buy things according to what stage our child is at rather than what time of year it is!

What’s Your System?

You’ll have to have some system in place to keep track of what you have and where it is. This can be done with a spreadsheet, a folder or a notebook. You need to know what you have and where it is so that if someone wants to buy it, you won’t accidentally sell them something else! You also need to know how much each piece costs so that when people offer less than your asking price, you can say no without losing money on the deal.

Audit Your Stockpile

Now you’re ready to go through your clothes. Here’s how:

  • Make a checklist of what to look for. You may want to divide the clothes into categories, such as items that are too small or too big; items that are stained or missing buttons; or items with holes or tears.
  • Organize the clothes in the order they need to be washed. If you have a large amount of laundry, use two baskets so that you can keep track of what needs done next. A good rule of thumb is that if it has been worn more than once since last washing, then it needs another wash before being consigned (or sold).
  • When organizing your inventory, make sure everything is clean and ironed before putting them back on hangers or folding them neatly in piles according to their size category—this will make it easier for buyers who come by later on!

Here’s the Catch

We all know that children grow out of their clothes so fast and that buying new clothes for them can be expensive. So why not consider consignment? It’s a great way to make money, save money and give your child used clothing. But before you start selling anything online or locally, ask yourself these questions:

  • Are you organized? This means knowing what you have and how much it costs. If someone offers you $5 for that cute pair of jeans but they cost $20 new, don’t take it! You may be able to sell them later at a higher price if they haven’t been worn too much already (this is where the “no stains or tears rule” comes in handy). It also helps if you know what sizes are available in each type of clothing (ie size 4T/5T) so that customers aren’t left hanging thinking there might be another size up waiting around somewhere else on your wardrobe rack when really there isn’t one available anymore because little Johnny has moved up two sizes since buying those adorable overalls six months ago…#ENDWRITE

Use the Right Tools

Use the right tools:

  • Use a spreadsheet to track inventory. This will help you keep track of what you have, when it was sold and how much profit you made.
  • Label your clothes with quality labels that won’t wash away or fall off in the first wash. If your buyer would like to see them on the garment before purchase, label each item with a removable sticker so they can identify what they are buying.
  • Take professional quality photographs of your items to post online and send in emails about consignment orders for baby clothes. This is an important step in promoting your business because people want to see exactly what they are buying before making their decisions on whether or not they want it(or something similar).

Psychologically speaking, humans tend toward overvaluing things which we don’t own and undervaluing things which we do own! Therefore it’s important that sellers take steps towards educating potential buyers about the value of their product through good photography techniques such as those mentioned above.”

Read the Fine Print

  • Read the Fine Print. If you’re consigning, always read the fine print to make sure you understand the terms of the consignment agreement. For example, what happens if your clothes don’t sell?
  • Know How Much You Will Be Paid. Are you paid upfront or when items are sold? If it’s an advance, how much and over how long a period of time will it be held? Also check to see if there are penalties for non-payment such as storage fees or interest charges.
  • Know What Happens to Your Clothes If They Aren’t Sold: Will they be donated if they haven’t been sold by a certain date? Does that date change each month depending on space at the store or seasonality (think fall/winter vs spring/summer)? Is there any kind of notice given before they get sent off somewhere else so that you have time to pick up anything else from your closet that might still be worth something if not sold in its current condition (this could apply even if someone buys an item—they may decide not keep it after all).

Consigning baby clothes is a great way to make money and clean up your home.

With consignment for baby clothes, you can make money from clothes that are no longer needed and get rid of clothes you don’t want. Consigning your items allows you to get rid of things in a stress-free way. You don’t have to spend time selling items yourself; instead, other people will come in and purchase them for themselves or their families. It’s a great way to make money without having to spend a lot of time on it!

You can do this at your own pace, too—if you’re feeling particularly ambitious one day and have the energy to do some cleaning up around the house, go ahead! Consigning baby clothes is truly an easy way for moms everywhere who need extra cash flow but don’t want any hassle at all from selling their items themselves (or even finding someone who will).

Conclusion

Consigning baby clothes is a great way to make money and clean up your home.
