IMPORTANT OGOP MERCHANDISE POLICIES
- SAFETY AND RECALLS: Safety is super important to OGOP. You are responsible for only consigning safe items. CLICK HERE to check for Safety Recalls prior to dropping off your items.
- BROKEN ITEMS: If you consign an item we are unable to check (bottle warmer/video game, mobiles ect) and it is returned by a shopper because it does not work properly, a $15 handling fee will be deducted from your cheque - NO exceptions.
- ITEMS MISSING PIECES: If you consign items that are missing pieces (toys, puzzles, lego sets, games, ect) and it’s returned by a shopper because it is missing pieces, a $15 handling fee will be deducted from your cheque… NO exceptions.
- SEASONAL CLOTHING: For clothing items, we will only accept seasonal items so...no sandals or shorts in the winter and no snowsuits, snow boots or mittens in the spring.
- BATTERY OPERATED ITEMS: Must have batteries
Listed below are OGOP categories, some examples and the guidelines for what we will or won't accept. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to Contact Us.
BABY GEAR: Strollers, high chairs, exersaucers, swings, bouncy seats, bassinets, cradles, cribs, safety gates, play-n-packs, bath tubs, baby carriers, diaper bags, boosters, etc...
NURSERY/KIDS DECOR: Monitors (must include batteries), crib bedding (sets only – sheets, blankets and bumper pads), blankets, mobiles, lamps and décor. Theme items that are sold together as a set, will sell faster than individually.
LINEN/BLANKETS: Bed-in-a-bag sets. Comforter, sheets, pillow cases, décor pillows, etc. Please do not bag any linen. Refer to our Consignors 101 Manual for details on how to properly display.
CLOTHING: Newborn to size 10. When priced right (around 25% of brand new), like-new brand name clothing sells quickly. For example: Oshkosh, Baby Gap, Old Navy, Disney, Bum, Simply Basic, Gymboree, The Children’s place, Please Mum, La Senza Girl etc...
- ALL clothing must be freshly laundered and without signs of wear/tear, stains, scents and pet hair! Hang your clothing neatly on hangers. Hangers must be facing left like a ? mark.
- We strongly prefer that all clothing items are on wire hangers when possible. Most baby items will fit nicely on a wire hanger.
- Button all buttons, snap all snaps, zip all zippers, sew loose hems and seams. Items that are washed, ironed and have all pieces attached will sell faster! The better your items look, the quicker they will SELL.
- Selling multiple/bundled items at once, sell quicker! Pin pants/skirts/shorts etc, to the back of the shirt (at the shoulders with pin looped through the wire^ hanger) facing out for easy viewing OR hang second item on another hanger (front of item facing out) and attach together with an elastic rubber band. Never hide the second item under the first. Matching accessories should be pinned to the front of the hanger or sealed in a Ziploc… poke the hanger through the bag.
- Pants or skirts should be hung at the waist, at the top of the hanger ^ (or you can use a pant hanger), and pin to ensure they do not slide from side to side. Do not pin to the bottom part of hanger because your items will slide around and bunch up. Do not fold pants on the hanger.
- Always attach your tags to the label or in a seam/inside cuff, on the right side of item, when your hanger is hung like a ? mark and you’re looking at it. NEVER pin through fabric because it will leave holes and we won’t be able to accept it.
CLOTHING - TWEEN'S: BRAND NAME ONLY: Small, medium and large. For example: Gap, Esprit, Guess, American Eagle Outfitters, Hollister, Abercrombie & Fitch, Aerie, Banana Republic, Roots, Le Chateau, Mexx, NHL, Vintage...
FOOTWEAR: Rubber boots, winter boots, baby booties, sneakers, dressy shoes, sandals, Robeez and Crocs.
- All shoes must be in almost perfect condition. Wipe them down...including the bottom! Be picky because the shoppers will be. Tie shoes together by the laces or use an elastic band, a fastener or use dollar store ribbon. We can’t sell just one shoe if one gets lost.
- Please do not bag shoes (unless baby slippers/shoes), they will be ripped open! Only use a Ziploc bag or cling wrap for itty bitty baby shoes, slippers or shoes that you can not link together.
- Consider putting several pairs of baby shoes or slippers together in one bag and for one price. Attach your tag with a large safety pin through the shoelace eye or use clear packing tape to attach to the outside of your Ziploc bag
BOOKS: All children’s, parenting and pregnancy books in excellent condition (no ripped or sticky pages or writing unless an inscription)
