Frequently Asked Questions


What is the consignor fee?

The Consignor fee is $10. The fee is per event, and is the same for every consignor, whether you consign one item or 1000. Your payment is not required upfront; it is deducted from your earnings check. Please note: every event registration incurs a separate Consignor fee.

Can I pick up my items that don't sell?

Yes, you have the option to donate or pick up your items that don't sell. Pick up time is typically a two hour window after the close of the event. See the Event Schedule.

How many items can I consign?

1 or 1000. No matter how big your pile of clothing and goods, you can consign with us. We do limit baby clothes 0-12 months to a maximum of 20.

Can I use wire hangers?

No. Items brought to the event on wire hangers will not be accepted.

I have consigned at a previous Children's Drop & Shop event. Can I use my same consignor number?

Yes, you can use the same consignor number if you have consigned at a previous Children's Drop & Shop event. The Ladies Drop & Shop event is different; your consignor number for the Ladies event will be different. If you forgot your consignor number or password, the system can send it to the email address that you specified when you registered.

Can I consign my car seats, cribs, feeding bottles, breast pumps, underwear or nursing bra’s?

No, we cannot accept these items. But we encourage you contact the Community Giving Tree in Boxford, MA for donation. They need many of these items for their families in need.

What do the consignors earn from the event?

Consignors earn 60% of all revenue received from their sold items. Your earnings check will be that amount minus the consignor fee.

When will I receive my earnings from the event and how will I get it?

We mail earnings checks two weeks from the end of the event.

I am an existing Consignor of the Northshore events. Can I consign my items at the New Hampshire event?

Yes, you just have to register as a Consignor at the New Hampshire event. Your login ID and password will work under both events.

Can I consign my items at both events? i.e. bring my unsold items to the second event using the same tags?

Yes, but you would need to be registered to consign at the second event and you would need to TRANSFER that inventory to the second event through the system. You will also need to receive the transferred inventory in your second event account. Additionally, if you plan to bring your unsold items from the first event to the second event, you must mark your items as "Do Not Donate" during the inventory process of the first event. You are also responsible for picking up your unsold items and bringing them to the second event. Please note: every event registration incurs a separate Consignor fee.

Also note: Best to only receive inventory into an account whose inventory is currently EMPTY so that item ID conflicts will be avoided. If an item ID conflict occurs during the receipt of a transfer inventory batch, the consignor will need to re-print the tags that were conflicted before bringing them to the second event.


What forms of payment do you accept?

Cash and local check with ID. Returned check fee is $35 and yes, we press charges for fraudulent purchases. We now also accept credit cards, minimum purchase $20. Visa and MasterCard only.

Is the SHOP open to the public?

Besides the Pre-Sale event, the SHOP is open to the public. See the Event Schedule for SHOP hours and dates.
