Guidelines, Standards & What to Sell
Last updated May 2021
Thank you for reviewing the WeeUsables safety and quality standards so you can help us continue to sell only safe, gently-used, high-quality items our shoppers have grown to expect! A printable document (PDF) of this information is updated prior to each sale season.
Baby and child safety is WeeUsables’ number one priority. Please carefully read the important information below to ensure the items you choose to consign meet our safety expectations.
- Please refer to the following websites to be certain your items are not recalled and follow our safety guidelines:
- When possible, please include owner’s manuals and manufacturer-provided safety info.
- Be sure packaging for items with small pieces are sealed and contained so young shoppers are not at risk for choking or ingestion hazards while on our sales floor.
- Please no straight pins of any kind as we do not provide our shoppers with thimbles!
Most importantly, when considering items to consign, please remember WeeUsables is NOT a yard sale. Wee take quality seriously.
Also, per the consignor waiver, WeeUsables reserves the right to assess the following fees, if applicable:
- $25 – for over 25 items pulled for quality issues
- $25 – for over 25 tags that are unable to be scanned at checkout
- 10% of tagged price – for items that do not meet our quality expectations and require cleaning by the Quality Team in order to be sold, a fee of 10% of the tagged price will be deducted from the consignor’s earnings. If the item is found to need more than a light cleaning, it will be pulled from the sales floor.
