Shoppers

Is there a charge to enter the sale or to park?
We never charge our shoppers to enter or to park.

What kinds of things do you sell?
Items for sale include children's clothing in sizes preemie to kids size 18, maternity clothes, shoes and other kid accessories.  We also have a large variety of toys, both indoor and outdoor, nursery and kid's room furniture, bed, bath and feeding supplies. You'll also find books, videos, games, crafts and scrapbook items, strollers, high chairs, car seats, booster seats and much, much more. 

When can I shop?
We will be open Thursday from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m., Friday from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Saturday from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m., with many items marked down to half price. We offer large "shopping bags" for your convenience that you will return at checkout.

Are there any early shopping opportunities?
Our volunteers shop first. You do not have to be a consignor to volunteer.  Work any shift and shop the VIP Sale, which precedes the public sale.

Do you allow strollers?
Yes, but please understand  the sale gets crowded at certain times. It may be easier to bring a list with your children's sizes and have your children stay with someone else while you shop. If you choose to bring your children, we require they stay with you at all times.

May I try on items ?
No, we do not allow items to be removed from the sale floor.  It may be helpful to take your child's measurements (i.e. inseam, rise, etc.) or measure clothes in your child's closets that already fit and bring those numbers and a tape measure to the sale to compare.


How many sales do you offer?
We offer 2 sales a year.  March and September.
 

Do you take checks and credit cards?
We acceot cash, Visa, Mastercard, and Discover. WE NO LONGER ACCEPT CHECKS!!
 


Consignors

What exactly does consignment mean?
Consignment means that we sell your items for you in exchange for a percentage of your sales and a $15 registration fee.  You set your own price on your items!  Seasonal consignment sales are a great way of making more money on items you want to sell than yard sales, online auctions and local consignment stores. We also offer a safe exchange and a guarantee of payment for sold items.

Why do you have such a strict quality policy?
People who shop the Adorable Affordables sale have come to expect high-quality, stylish, gently used items in excellent condition at affordable prices. Torn, stained and very old items are not acceptable.  We may reject some of your items; please don't be offended.  It's very important for us to maintain the integrity and high quality of our sale.

What percentage of the selling price will I get?
Sellers receive 70 percent of each item's selling price. Your $15 registration fee is no longer deducted from your profit check but is now NON-REFUNDABLE and paid through Paypal upon registration for each seasonal sale.

When will you send my money?
We mail checks within one week of the sale's end.

Will you return my hangers?
All clothing items must be placed on hangers according to our directions.  When someone buys your items, we don't remove the hangers; thus we can't return them to you.

How will I know which items sold?
Our automated system will allow you to track your items throughout the sale. Sale statistics will be available nightly on the website after 10 p.m.

 Can I hand-write my tags?
No.  All tags must be created using our automated system.  Every item you enter in our system is given an individual barcode that will be printed on each tag.  That barcode is scanned during our check out process and is how your items are sold.  No handwritten tags will be accepted.

Can I use tags from an automated sale other than Adorable Affordable?                                           
No.  Barcodes from other sale tags will not be connected to your account with Adorable Affordable, therefore, they will not register as an active item and will not be sold.  Every item must have a tag created and printed from our on-line system.

 


Volunteers


Do I have to be a consignor to volunteer and shop the VIP sale?
No, anyone can work a shift at the sale to earn the right to shop the VIP sale.  All available shifts are listed on our website.  All volunteers must register for an OPEN shift on the volunteer schedule on the website.

How much earlier do workers get to shop?
Volunteers get to shop the night before the sale opens to the public at our VIP sale. The Adorable Affordables owner will determine the times of the VIP sale.

Can my children be with me during my volunteer shift?

We do not allow children to be with you during your volunteer shift. Sale preparation is not a safe place for children.
