Trade/Sell

Buying Times

No Buying 7/5 – 7/22

*We are not buying clothing/small toys/books 7/5-7/22, but will accept consignment items (i.e. travel cribs, carriers, strollers etc), but it is best to CALL beforehand to make sure we have the room/need.

While we will make every effort to have a buyer available during buying hours, there may be situations where we cannot be, in which case you may leave your items for the buyer to look through when she returns. Please indicate if you will return to pickup items we pass on or if we should donate them.

How to Trade/Sell at Mommy’s Trading Post

Step 1

Bring in your gently used items (see what we are currently accepting for reference).

Clothing: Limit 2 bags per visit. Please bring in clean (unstained), wrinkle-free, odor-free, pet hair free clothing.

Baby Gear/Toys: Please include ALL pieces and batteries, if needed. Items need to be ready to be wiped down, clean and ready to sell.  Large items: We have limited space, so we may not always be able to take baby gear, depending on what we currently have in stock.

Step 2

A buyer will review your items. We select what our customers might buy based on season, brand, condition, current inventory and buyer’s experience.

Step 3

What you get in return:

Baby/Children’s clothing/shoes and small toys (typically anything that will sell for under $20)

You will receive 40% store credit* on the spot. You can use this credit immediately, or save it for later date. Store credit can be used on anything in store and it never expires!

*Exceptions may be made at the discretion of the buyer for size 6X clothes only.

Maternity/Nursing Clothing

You can either choose 40% store credit (you receive more) or 30% check. You will receive this on the spot; credit can be used immediately or saved for a later date. Store credit can be used on anything in the store and it never expires!

Baby Gear/Large Toys

These items go on consignment, which means you will receive compensation once the item has sold. Consigned items will be displayed for for 90 days.

Once the item sells:

You can choose between 40% in check or 60% in store credit of the item’s final selling price. Check/credit for consigned items may be collected 7 days after an item is sold, in order to accommodate our return policy. Checks must be picked up in store during buying hours (or if you request in advance it can be ready outside of buying hours). If you would like a check mailed there will be a $2 charge.

What if the items don’t sell within 90 days?

At the end of the contract period, all unsold items automatically become property of Mommy’s Trading Post and will be marked down or donated. If you would like your items back, it is your responsibility to collect them before the end of the contract period. Due to the large volume of consignors, we do not notify you when your items sell, however, you will receive a link to check the status online, or you are welcome to call anytime to check the status.

We will do our best to safeguard your items, but are not responsible for loss or damage.
