How do I know if an item has been ‘recalled’ by the CPSC?
We can not accept for sale any items that have been recalled by the Consumer Product Safety Commission. Seller’s are responsible for making sure their items are not on the recall list and/or are not considered unsafe. Check the CPSC web site for info on the items you are bringing to the sale.

What about items that require batteries to work?
All items requiring batteries must have working batteries installed. (You can find these inexpensively at dollar-stores.)

Can I send someone in my place to drop-off and/or pick-up my items?
Yes, no problem. Anyone can bring your items to your drop-off appointment.
If you send someone to pick-up your ‘un-sold’ items, please be sure they are aware that they will need to find your unsold clothing on the clothing racks and your unsold ‘other’ items on the tables. Items will not be sorted out by consignor number.

I already have a consignor number from selling in previous Stork Lady Kids sales – should I register for a NEW consignor number?
No, if you have an EXISTING consignor number from participating in our KIDS’ sale, register for the HOLIDAY & TOY sale using that consignor number. This will allow you to transfer any ‘inactive’ unsold toy items into ‘active’ inventory’.  (Note: Do NOT use an existing ADULTS sale consignor number.)
