How to consign
We are accepting walk-ins (no appointment necessary) any time we're open (Monday to Saturday between 10:00 am and 5:00 pm.) We are strictly seasonal: please consult the calendar below to see what season we're currently accepting. If you've never consigned with us before, we'll set up an account for you when you come in — no need to do so in advance.
We are currently accepting consignments by in-store drop-off. If there are any items we can't sell, we will pass them onto our partners rather than returning them to the consignor. Please ensure that all items you bring are in excellent condition so we're able to accept them all!

What to bring
We are very selective with the items we are able to accept. This is so we can offer the highest-quality inventory possible to you, our customers! A good rule of thumb is if you wouldn't purchase an item in its current condition, we likely won't accept it for resale.
We accept freshly washed, wrinkle-free, gently worn children's clothing, shoes, and accessories sizes newborn through 12. All items must be in excellent condition with no flaws. If items require extra attention (steaming, lint rolling, etc.) before being put out for sale, we will deduct a small cleaning fee from your account.
We take mall brand and boutique/designer clothing (a list of some of our favorite brands is in the FAQ below). We do NOT take discount store brands, like Target (Cat & Jack, Art Class), Kohl's (Jumping Beans) or Walmart (Garanimals). We also take sportswear, including dance and gymnastics leotards and shoes, soccer cleats, and ice skates.
Toys + books
We accept toys that are unopened, in their original packaging (never used). We also accept children's books that are in excellent condition with no writing or labels inside.
What not to bring
We do not handle baby equipment (high chairs, strollers, car seats, etc.), infant toys, stuffed animals, bedding, discount store brands (Walmart, Target, etc.), room decor, DVDs, VHS tapes, CDs, computer software, open boxed puzzles and games, or any items that have been recalled. Please visit recalls.gov to check if an item has been recalled.
Consignment profits are split (40% to the consignor and 60% to Merry Go Rounds) when an item sells. Payments may be collected in the store or mailed by phone request. Consignors are able to view their account balance at any time using our Consignor Access service.
Unsold items will be responsibly recycled at the end of the season with Helpsy.
Frequently asked questions
How and when are consignors paid?
Consignors are paid 40% of an item's selling price after it sells. The money is posted to the consignor's account and can be collected at any time. It is up to the consignor to keep track of his or her account (we do not automatically send checks). The easiest way to keep track of your account is to either call and ask us to check it or to check it when you come into the store.
Why do you take clothing on a seasonal basis?
We pride ourselves in keeping our merchandise up to date and desirable. We also don't have the storage space to keep out of season items!
What do you do with the items that don't sell?
We have partnered with Helpsy, a certified B Corp, to responsibly recycle the items we cannot sell.
How do you set the price for an item?
We determine prices based on the brand of the item, the item type, whether the item is new with tags or used, and, in the case of clothing, the size.
What brands do you sell?
Some of our favorite clothing brands include 7 for All Mankind, Absorba, Adidas, Beaufort Bonnet, The Black Dog, Burberry, Burt's Bees, Catherine Malandrino, Catimini, Columbia, Crewcuts, Florence Eiseman, Gap, Gymboree, Hanna Andersson, Jacadi, Janie and Jack, Jelly the Pug, Lilly Pulitzer, L.L. Bean, Matilda Jane, Mini Boden, Mudpie, Nike, The North Face, Patagonia, Petit Bateau, Ralph Lauren, Splendid, Tea, Tucker + Tate, UGG, Under Armour, Vineyard Vines, Zara, and Zutano.
Some of our favorite toy brands include American Girl, Melissa & Doug, Sophie the Giraffe, and WubbaNub.
Local supplier commitment
One of the best things about the consignment business model is that it returns value directly to our consignors, almost all of whom are local parents in Easton and the surrounding towns. What's more, that value is more likely to stay within the local community, which supports our goal of vibrant, self-sufficient local economies.
To that end, we have made a formal commitment to supply the bulk of our inventory (at least 50% of expenses) from local, independent suppliers. The vast majority of our inventory is already supplied by local consignors, but we will also extend this commitment to choosing local suppliers for our other inventory (like new toys, gifts, and handmade products) whenever possible.
