Information for Consignors  

  • A minimum of ten individual items or $30 minimum total sales value is required to register as a consignor. There is a $5 consignor fee which will be deducted from your check after the sale. Consignor numbers are assigned when registering for the first time. This number cannot be changed and will be the same number each sale. 
  • Gently used clothing, furniture, baby gear, toys, and other children’s items will be accepted. In addition, we are accepting gently used handbags, totes, and other women’s accessories (no clothing, please). 
  • Car seats, drop side cribs, stuffed animals, maternity clothing, and stained/unclean items will NOT be accepted. 
  • Children’s clothing and other items should be clean and gently used without stains or holes, from a smoke-free environment, and placed on appropriate-sized hangers. Plastic hangers are preferred over wire hangers.
  • The Totes and Tots Consignment Sale reserves the right not to sell items if they are not in accordance with our guidelines. 
  • To complete sales tags, go to Consignor Homepage and click on “Work with Consigned Inventory.” Note: Each item must be entered before printing tags. 
  • White and color card stock will be available, along with cable ties, at the Junior League of Greater Fort Lauderdale Headquarters. The first 15 sheets are complimentary. Additional sheets can be purchased at 5 cents per sheet. First 100 cable ties are complimentary. Additional bundles of 100 cable ties can be purchased for $1. Or, you can choose to use your own from home. 
  • Sales tags must be printed on card stock. Flimsy paper tags often fall off and get lost. Items without a tag cannot be sold. Using heavier paper like cardstock helps ensure your items get a chance to be sold! 
  • Choose your card stock color – Colored card stock means “no donate” and unsold items will be returned to you. White card stock means “donate” and the item will be donated if it does not sell.  
  • Any shade of cardstock that could be considered white, such as ivory, beige, or light gray will be donated. If you do not want your items donated, please print on brightly colored cardstock. Pastel colors are preferred as they work the best with our scanners.  
  • All items marked “Discount Yes” will be sold at half price on Saturday after 12 pm. No exceptions. 
  • All unsold items tagged with white card stock will be donated to a local charity if not sold.
