When are Snuggle Bugs events held?

Our seasonal events are held in the Spring and Fall to help you get ready for the upcoming season.

Who can participate in this event?

Anyone with acceptable items can sell. To participate, head over to our Consignors section to learn more.

How many items can I sell?

Whether you've got a few items or are looking to get rid of everything just taking up space, we've got you covered. Consignors are given a chance to sell up to 200 items for this event. Please note - a four piece outfit counts as one item. Multiple related items can be bundled and sold as a group.

*Consignors who sold 75% in the previous sale are invited to bring additional items. Team Snuggle Bugs members are invited to bring up to 999 items.

What do you consider to be 'seasonal' items?

While many items like jeans, long sleeve tees, and hoodies are "year-round" items, there are some items that clearly belong in one event or the other. For example, Spring events would feature sandals, light jackets, sundresses, etc. The fall event would feature holiday outfits, costumes, heavy winter coats/hats/gloves, snowsuits, snow boots, etc.

Is there a fee to participate?

There is a $10 consignor fee deducted from your final payment check that helps to cover the cost of rent, advertising, racks, and supplies.

Why do you offer such a high percentage payout when most consignment stores offer 50% or LESS?

Our consignors make this event possible and we believe that they deserve to get the best possible payout for their items. The more successful our consignors are, the better the event!

Why is there so much emphasis on accepting only EXCELLENT QUALITY items?

We want to keep the integrity of our shopping experience. A better shopping experience means a better selling experience.

Be honest...how hard is it to enter my items online through your website? Wouldn't it be easier to do it by hand?

It's reeeeeally easy! With our simple "quick pick" lists you'll be done registering items in no time! It's kinda like those "5-minute meals," though... actual time may vary. The payout will be just as satisfying!

What makes Snuggle Bugs & Company unique in their consignment approach?

By working with Snuggle Bugs, consignors have control over their items AND their success! Please check out our Consignors section to learn how you can cash in on items your children don't need, want or simply have outgrown.

Is there an admission fee for shoppers? Or a fee for parking?

This event is 100% FREE to attend. There is no admission charge and parking is both abundant and FREE.

Which forms of payment are accepted at the sale?

We accept cash, debit, Visa and MasterCard.

Where can I find the supplies I need to prepare my items for the sale?

You may already have most of the items that you will need around the house. Most items that you don't have on-hand are easily (and inexpensively) purchased at Wal-Mart or the Dollar store. For detailed product preparation instructions check out our "Merchandise Preparation" section.

What should I write on the items tags?

The only information you need to write on the tags for your items is the number that is assigned to the item when you enter it online (1,2,3, etc.). All of the other important information...your consignor ID, the description, the price, etc. will be on the labels that I print for you. The ONLY reason to even write the 1,2,3, etc. is to help you keep your items in order. The labels that I print for you will be printed in the same order that you enter your items. By keeping your items in order, your labeling will be quick, easy, and accurate. For details, see Merchandise Preparation.

When will I receive my payment check?

Payment will be available at Pick-Up, so you won't have to wait to get paid!

Do I have to be there during the sale?

No. We will take care of everything during the sale. There are volunteer options available to consignors who want to earn an even higher payout and early shopping privileges.

How do I participate?

To learn about becoming a consignor, please visit our Consignors section.

How does Drop Off work?

Once you've registered as a consignor and have entered and tagged your items, you are ready to drop off. You will unload your items, be directed to parking and then return to the store for check in. At check-in, be prepared to confirm your understanding of our Consignment Agreement, which was part of our sign up process. Our volunteers will then assist you in finding the correct area on the sales floor for your items. Once you place your items correctly, you are free to leave. Click here for frequently asked drop off questions.

Where can I find hangers?

We always recommend asking friends, family members, neighbors, and other Moms that you know to see if they have any. Many times these connections can yield a jackpot! If you do not have any luck there, you can try local thrift stores, freecycle.com, and some local stores. Walmart and Kmart will sometimes allow you to take their used hangers if you ask. In the worst case, you can find packages of hangers at local dollar stores or Walmart very inexpensively. Please keep in mind that Consignors will be able to keep the hangers from their presale purchases and are welcome to take hangers with them at pick-up to replenish their supply.

How does volunteering work to get early shopping privileges I?

Our volunteers are invited to work just 6 hours in order to receive early shopping privileges at the Snuggle Bugs presale events. You do not have to be a consignor in order to volunteer and get early shopping privileges.

Please keep in mind that you are responsible for all scheduled shifts, even those that fall after the early shopping period. All shifts are tracked. Failure to meet your commitment means that you will NOT receive the higher consignor payment, will NOT be able to volunteer again at any Snuggle Bugs sale, and will NOT be granted early shopping privileges again.

Snuggle Bugs is nothing without our dedicated volunteers and consignors. If we do not have the manpower needed to run this sale, it wouldn't exist, so this restriction ensures the continued success of Snuggle Bugs.
