  • What would you honestly pay for the item at a consignment shop?
  • ​If in doubt, price lower.  If you price too high, the item won't sell.
  • ​​Also choose to donate any unsold items - it gives you satisfaction in knowing your items are going to a good cause AND there's less to pick up!  THERE IS NO DISCOUNT DAY FOR THE TOY SALE!
