Questions About Items

Generally, WeeUsables accepts a variety of new and gently used maternity, baby, and children’s merchandise including clothes (preemie to kids size 20), toys, strollers, bikes, books, bouncy seats, children’s games, nursery items, furniture and much more.   Please review the consignor Guidelines, Quality Standards & What to Sell page for a complete list of acceptable and unacceptable items.

All (regular and restocking) consignors must enter and bring a minimum of 25 items to the sale to participate.  Those under these minimums, may be deleted as a consignor and WeeHelper shifts, cancelled.

Wee do not have a maximum total number of items a consignor may bring. However, both Lancaster and York have limits on HANGING children's and maternity clothing. Also, we do have the right to refuse any inordinately large amounts. Please review the Consignor Options by Location page for more information on hanging limits.

First, we ask that you pick the BEST 100 hanging children’s items and 20 hanging maternity items to sell PLUS freebies.  BUT, if you have more to sell, contact us quickly for the current options.

No, that’s why it’s best to find free ones.  If you need to buy hangers, add the cost into the price you are charging for the item to help off-set this cost.

Click here for some ideas on where to find them free or really cheap! Seasoned consignors are looking for and stashing hangers year around.  Also, there are lots of hangers left after our Stuff-a-Bag event on Saturday. Savvy consignors will come and load up for the next event. 😊

After the sale, unsold items may be picked up by the consignor during the designated consignor pickup time.  Then, ANY items left past pickup become the property of WeeUsables, no matter if the item was marked Donate Yes or No.  We will gladly distribute all unsold items to local charities who benefit families in our community.

YES!  You may transfer unsold items to future WeeUsables' sales, or other sales using the MyCM software. Consignors must "transfer" these items online, to the NEW event; and are also responsible for physically transferring them from one event to another.
