Contact us byphone or email to set up an appointment to drop your items off. (This information can be found in the Contact tab).
You may drop off a maximum of ONE small Rubbermaid tub, or it's equivalent (your items fit into a large laundry basket), at each appointment. No bags, please.
At your appointment time you will be asked if you would prefer Store Credit or Consignment as well as if you would like your No-Thank-You's (anything we can't accept) returned to you or donated. Store Credit is only offered for clothing items. All other items will be sold on consignment. For your convenience we will donate your items to a charity of our choice. Please note Maternity items are strictly sold on Consignment.
You will receive a telephone call or email when we are finished reviewing your items. At that time we will either present you with a Store Credit buy-out amount or an itemized list of items placed on Consignment. Please note that while we strive to get through your items as quickly as possible it may take up to two weeks depending on our work load.
You will be expected to pick up your containers within 7 calendar days of our contact. After 30 days, your items will automatically become property of JJ Kids & Co. and will be donated.
PLEASE, do not be upset if we do not accept your items. There are many variables that determine what items we take in. It's easy to miss flaws at home in certain light conditions, and overlook missing parts. Maybe it's an item that historically doesn't sell easily, is obsolete, or is out of season. Please understand that for our customers' and our own sake, we must be selective about the inventory we carry. Our customers demand, and rightfully so, to get the most for their hard-earned money. It also allows us to give you, our supplier, a fair and honest price. The bottom line is "What would you want to buy?"
The earnings you receive will be impacted by:
Your adherence to our guidelines
Our current stock of the item
The current popularity of the same or similar items
Whether it is in season or not
All Other Items Must Be:
Wiped down, cleaned, and ready to sell. We will sterilize items that are required by state law.
In excellent working condition and having no missing parts or broken pieces. To help you receive a premium price, it is helpful to include the instructions and packaging, but it is NOT required.
Including fresh batteries if it requires them. If we have to supply batteries, it will be deducted from your earnings. We use generic alkaline batteries to keep costs down.
Store credit clothing items will earn you 20-40% of our selling price depending on condition, season, inventory, brand, etc.
Store credit may be used at the time you pick up your returns or saved to use at a later date. You may use all or part of it at any time.
We will maintain your account balance in our records and will ask for your initials at every transaction. You may inquire about your balance at any time by contacting us.
After a period of 12 months of inactivity you will forfeit your credit. The responsibility of using your credit in this time is yours.
