Thank you for choosing Lil’ Lambs Closet
for your consignment!
Whether you’ve never participated in a consignment sale before, or you’re a veteran shopper and consignor, we welcome your participation in Lil’ Lambs Closet. However, we ask that you utilize the information available here. It is especially important that you read the information provided below and in our links.
Each sale features specific types of clothing, either Spring/Summer or Fall/Winter. While certain items may be appropriate at either season, Lil’ Lambs reserves the right to refuse any item that is deemed inappropriate for the sale. This may include clothing that is unsuitable for the season or toys that represent violent or other inappropriate themes.
In particular, Lil’ Lambs refuses to accept any item that appears worn, dirty, stained, or broken. Please carefully check that clothing has all buttons and that zippers work. We recommend examining all clothing under bright, flourescent lighting, as this will best resemble the lighting conditions of check-in and the sale. Many stains that are not noticeable under household lighting become obvious when presented at check-in. Please understand that we simply cannot accept items that do not meet our criteria.
Due to child product safety laws, it is illegal for us to sell anything that is on the Consumer Product Safety Commission recall list. Therefore,we can NOT and will NOT accept any items which have been recalled. One new recall is drop-sided cribs. As of the 2011 fall sale, we will not accept any drop-sided cribs for consignment. For all other items, each consignor is responsible for checking their items to make sure none are on the recall list. Please check the CPSC website (Consumer Product Recalls) carefully before you choose your consignable items.

All registrations must be completed online and are on a first-come, first-served basis.
You only have to set up an account once because you will keep the same consignor number and password for each subsequent sale.
If you are unable to sell after you register, please let us know as soon as possible. We usually have a waiting list of people who wish to consign. Please understand that if you register to sell and do NOT show up, you may not be allowed to register for the next sale.
Once you register, you will receive an email confirming your registration, and the email will direct you to this website for further information. PLEASE READ ALL OF THE INFORMATION on this page and on the links before you start to inventory your items. We suggest you open all the links and print the information to use as a reference while preparing your items. The deadline for entering the items you wish to sell is Monday, March 4, 2013, at 11:00 PM.
All consignors are required to pay a registration fee of $5, which is charged when you register. Consignors may shop the pre-sale at 4pm on Thursday, March 7, 2013, before the sale is open to the public. To shop even earlier, Volunteer! Use your consignor number and password to log in and sign up.
The above link provides a document which contains specific consignor instructions as well as other pertinent sale information. Please read this information carefully as we cannot accept items, tags or inventory sheets that do not meet our criteria. We suggest printing the instructions to use as a reference while you are preparing your items. When working with consigned inventory, any item which is marked DONATE will automatically be marked REDUCED.
Included in the Consignor Instructions is a list of acceptable and unacceptable consignment items, but be sure to remember the following:
- We will NOT accept any products on the CPSC recall list. It is your responsibility to check your items.
- Underwear can only be sold if it is brand-new with tags or in an un-opened package.
- We no longer accept cribs for consignment.
- Shoes, in good condition, are limited to 10 pairs per seller, and they must be secured with zip-ties, not bags.
- Lil’ Lambs no longer accepts Juniors-sized items.
- For health reasons, we do not accept breastpumps.
Book and DVD Tags
If you are placing multiple books or DVD’s in one bag, please use this tag on the package to give a full list of all contents.
If you want some advice on how to get your items in shape for the sale, see this documents for cleaning tips, including our wonderful stain removal formula.
When you register, you will be asked to pick a check-in time. We have scheduled check-in times to help reduce your overall wait. Please choose your check-in time carefully. We often receive numerous phone calls the week of the sale from consignors who wish to change their check-in time. Unfortunately, this is also the busiest time for all of the Lil’ Lambs staff.
On check in day, bring all of your items and your inventory sheets to the Family Life Hall (FLH) of the church (building A). Please have all of your items prepared for sale, with inventory tags completed correctly and attached according to the directions on the Consignor Instructions link. If your items are not completed correctly, we will not be able to let you consign this sale! Please arrive in time to unload your items and park your vehicle prior to your check-in time. We will have volunteers available to help you unload and carry items inside.
Consignor’s Check and Item Pick-Up
Following the close of the sale, consignors return to the church on Saturday, March 9, from 4pm-5pm, to pick-up their unsold items and their check for items that did sell. To help simplify and streamline the close of the sale, check-out times are pre-assigned. Please understand that these times are the earliest possible time that your check will be ready.
- Lil’ Lambs will make every effort to have your check available at your assigned time.
- When needed, a Lil’ Lambs volunteer will bring your remaining items to you.
- Any items not picked up by 5:00 pm will be donated. NO EXCEPTIONS!
- Lil’ Lambs is not responsible for lost or stolen items.
- We do NOT reimburse consignors for lost or stolen items.
