Polka Dot Alligator
Children's Consignment LLC

Getting Ready

All consignors will be given a pre-sale pass to shop at 6pm on Wednesday night before the sale opens to the public on Thursday morning!!!!

Gather up your children's gently used and outgrown clothing; sell them at the Polka Dot Alligator Children's Sale and buy new items for the upcoming season!!

Consignors will receive 70% of the selling price!

 Saturday we will be open until 3pm CDT. Saturday is also 1/2 price day!! Your consigned items will not sell at 1/2 price unless you designate each individual item to be discounted! This is done when you create tags for your items.
Registration/Sign In

We encourage you to mark your items to discount half price. This helps move your inventory that hasn't sold before the last day of the sale. Many people only shop the 1/2 price day, so this is something to consider taking advantage of. The goal is to sell, sell, sell the items that you consign so you have a larger check!

Our registers will be set to honor 1/2 price tags on Saturday only. Tags which are marked DISCOUNT will be included in the 1/2 price sale on Saturday only.

 Each consignor is charged a $10 seller's fee, which will be taken out of your check after the sale.
We need volunteers to help with the Sale process...you will be rewarded!! Check out the Volunteer With Us!
section for more details! Please contact us if you have a special skill or need when you volunteer.

We ask that you please keep in mind that there may be some of your items we are unable to accept. If this is the case, you will receive a detailed explanation as to why. Please do not be offended if we cannot consign all of your items. If your items are not marked "donate", you may be asked to wait while we check in your items. We will work with you on drop-off wait times as long as you are able to return later in the day to pick up unaccepted items (if applicable).

 All shoes must be cleaned and (preferably zip-tied) SECURELY together. If zip-tying is not possible, we ask they be placed in clear ziplock bags. Please use heavy duty zip-ties or bags and secure tags to shoes. Do not "just drop the tag" inside the shoe bag. 

 We do accept maternity clothing. As with children's clothing, they must be current styling, free of stains, tears and be freshly laundered and SERCURELY on hangers. Tags must be pinned to the right side of the garment in such a manner that it is secure. See the tagging instructions for more details.

 There are detailed instructions on how to tag your items on the Prep and Tag page. It is very important that you reference these instructions!! We cannot accept improperly tagged items because we do not have time to rehang/retag clothing at the sale site. You will be asked to rehang/retag your improperly prepared items.

We use a computerized barcoding tag system. You MUST register with My Consignment Manager and create an account. There you will enter the items you have to consign, print your tags and track your inventory. The information you enter there is also the information we use to create and print your check! Make sure all your info is correct! As always, if you have questions or concerns, please contact us. We will respond as soon as possible.

If you do not have access to a computer or printer, contact a friend or utilize the library. 

 Unsold Items: Your UNSOLD ITEMS WILL BE SORTED by our wonderful volunteer staff after the sale is over, so your pick-up will be painless and quick. 

Pick-up for unsold items will be after the sale closes on Saturday evening unless prior arrangement have been made. If items have not been picked up 8pm, they will be donated to the Barren County charity designated for the Spring or Fall Sale.
