Consignment Process


How it Works

We accept items Monday through Friday until 5:00 p.m.  No consignment on Saturdays. We set up an account for you in our computer, label all your bags or boxes of items, and give you a consignment contract. After reviewing your items while you wait, the things we accept for consignment will be entered in the computer under your account. The items we don’t take will be set aside for you to take home or will be donated with your permission to accommodate your busy schedules. You can use our “Stop and Drop Form” included on our website to list your items for sale. This can be done when you come in or prior to drop off.

Pricing

Consignors will receive 40% of the final selling price on consigned items exclusive of buyers fees. No payment is received until after an item sells. Funds accumulate on your account as items sell. We close a payment period at the end of each month and a check will be generated 7 business days after the month end close. Balance must be greater than $20 unless otherwise requested for a check to be cut. A $1 fee is deducted from all checks for processing and postage for a check mailed to you. Unused balances accumulate as items sell and remain in consignor’s account until applied toward a purchase or cashed out. Accounts that remain idle with no activity for more than two years are subject to annual maintenance fees. Items brought in for a season remain on the floor for the entire season with the understanding that items remaining in the store at the time of the clearance sale will be included in the clearance sale at major discounted prices. 


Unsold Items

If any items remain after clearance sales are complete, those items will be pulled from the floor. Notice of the close of season will be sent via email and consignors who indicated a preference may pick up remaining items. If items are not claimed after two weeks of notification they become the property of Small Pockets to be disposed of as they see fit including donations to local charitable organizations. (We encourage consignors to donate – in most cases there will be only a few, less desirable items remaining.) All items are subject to markdowns, seasonal sales, and clearance sales at the discretion of management. The consignment split will be on the final selling price. Small Pockets is not responsible for loss of consigned articles through fire, theft, vandalism or natural disaster. We encourage all consignors to consider donating their unsold items to charity. We have chosen the “Love Thy Neighbor” and “The Family Place” as our charity of choice for unsold maternity and baby items.
