*Sellers please remember that the nicer things look, the more money you will make. Therefore it is important to clean all of you items and to be selective in which items you sell. Please do not sell any item that is on our non-accepted list. It may take a few extra minutes to sort through your items and wash them, however the amount of money you receive will be much higher than that of a typical garage sale. Also, please remember that this is not a "rummage" sale and our buyers expect quality!
Time is valuable, especially for moms-Barcoding gives moms more time!

A great place to get an idea of reasonable prices for items is ebay or your local ABQ consignment shop. Also, it helps to ask yourself what you would pay for the item had it been used. Items can be priced more than that of garage sales, but about 50-75% less than retail (clothes 75%-85% less than retail). Buyers are looking for a good buy. Therefore, items that are priced more reasonable will be the most likely to sell. Overpriced items will bring in NO revenue!!!! Please consider your pricing carefully!!!
*Brands such as Old Navy, Gap, The Children's Place, Gymboree, Ralph Lauren, Tommy Hilfiger, etc... go quickly and can be priced at the higher end of our guidelines.
