General Questions

What can shoppers find at WeeUsables?

Our sales offer a unique variety of new & gently used maternity, baby, and children’s merchandise including clothes (preemie to kids' size 20), toys, strollers, bikes, books, bouncy seats, children’s games, DVDs, nursery items, furniture and much more! Here’s a sample of items you may find at the next WeeUsables event.

Do I have to negotiate prices with each consignor?

Nope! Everything is organized by size and gender, like a “traditional” store including the price the consignor chose for the item. Just shop and checkout all at once. No negotiating with each seller.

Will you hold items while I am shopping?

Yes. We do ask for payment in order to pull the item off the sales floor and into the hold area. Remember, these local families want to sell their stuff!

Can I return some, or all of my purchases?

Sorry, but all sales are final. We do our best to check all the items sold are complete and in working condition however, it is the buyer’s responsibility to check that all toys and clothing items are satisfactory prior to purchase. No refunds or exchanges.

How do I know the items are safe?

We ensure the safety of our shoppers by restricting items, consignors signing a waiver they have checked for recalls and last, our quality team double-checks the items brought to the event. Also, per the state’s “yellow label” laws, we spray and sanitize all bedding and upholstery.

What is the Stuff-a-Bag (SAB)? Do you accept CC? Can I bring my own bag?

The Stuff-a-Bag event is a public sale held on Saturday evening and admission is free. At the entrance, we distribute biodegradable standard-sized grocery bags for shoppers to stuff with any remaining merchandise. Shoppers may bring larger bags (big totes, carts, etc) BUT must stuff into our bags. Each filled bag and large individual items cost $10 cash only. Sorry no credit cards may be used during Stuff-a-Bag. 100% of the money collected will be given to the local charity, voted on by our consignors. To date, WeeUsables Consignment Event has donated over $70,000 to organizations who help women and children in our communities.

What to Bring

Can children come?

Yes, children are always welcome, even for the pre-sales! But, with so many great deals, it may easier to shop solo 😊.

Can I bring a diaper bag?

Please leave large purses & diaper bags at home. If you bring a stroller or shopping bag, please throw in a diaper & wipes.

Can I bring a stroller?

Yes. Unlike other consignment events, WeeUsables does allow strollers!

Do I need to bring my own bag? Can I bring my own bag?

We do offer shoppers a large IKEA bag to hold items, but strongly suggest bringing something with wheels (wagon, cart, stroller etc.) to hold the bags. If you bring your own bag(s) to shop, our cashiers will put your items into garbage bags first then into your bag. This helps our security determine which items have been purchased.

Are there bathrooms?

Yes! Please ask a WeeHelper, in a blue shirt, green shirt or tan apron, for the closest available restroom.

Are there nursing & changing facilities?

Yes! Please ask a WeeHelper, in a blue shirt, green shirt or tan apron, for assistance.

How to Pay

Will I have to wait long to checkout?

Sometimes there can be a line to checkout, especially during busy times such as morning on the first public sale, Saturday morning’s half-off event and Stuff-a-Bag. We have lots of cashiers and we do our best to get shoppers out quick, but please bring extra patience. Remember how much time and money you are saving!

Can I write a check?

Sorry no checks.

What forms of payment does WeeUsables accept?

We accept cash, MasterCard, Discover, Visa, and American Express. However, paid admission at the door (when applicable) and Stuff-a-Bag purchases are cash only.

What’s a Bounce Back Coupon?
