INCREASE YOUR EARNINGS! TIPS & TRICKS
We want to buy your gently-used children’s items and give you top dollar for each item. This takes some work on your part. We get hundreds of items in daily. How do your items stand out from the others? Here are a few suggestions that will help you get more for the items you sell.
- Toys: Use mild cleaning solution or water with a soft brush to clean out crevices. A magic eraser will clean scuffs off toys. Make sure that no paint or stickers are missing. Include working batteries if required. Make sure to include all pieces and put toys that have many pieces in a separate bag. We are much more likely to take toys if they are organized. We do not accept toys that have been recalled. Check here for a recall list.
- Clothing: One of the biggest reasons we are unable to accept clothing is because the style is out of date. Although these clothes may be in excellent condition they do not sell well at Kids Pointe. Clothing more than 5 years old are perfect for donating to your local charity. We also suggest looking at your clothing in natural lighting. Our commercial lighting is much different than household lighting and we are able to see stains that could not be seen at home.
- Baby Equipment: Must be 5 years or newer for most equipment. It is very important to clean any fabric. We do not have laundry facilities set-up in store. The cleaner the better. We do not buy recalled items. Before you bring larger items in, it is always best to check for recalls first. If you are unsure if an item is recalled you may always call us first and we will be happy to help determine its status.
