What not to sell at moo La La

 

 

Moo La La Boutique will accept pretty much anything pertaining to babies, kids or maternity in excellent condition! We will thoroughly inspect all items during drop-off and unacceptable items will be sent home with the consignor. If we ask that you take back some of your items because of a missed blemish, please do not be offended. This is only to maintain the highest level of quality for our sale and we reserve the right to refuse any item that we feel may not sell.  Think QUALITY not quantity. 

 

  • Consignors are limited to selling a total of 250 items

  • Consignors may only bring a total of 50 items per gender for clothing under 12 months.

  • Consignors are limited to 5 of your VERY BEST maternity items (less than 3 years old)

  • NO INFANT BATH TUBS

  • NO BABY FOOD PROCESSING SYSTEMS WILL BE ACCEPTED (i.e. Baby Bullet, Baby Brezza).

  • ONLY STUFFED ANIMALS THAT HAVE AN ELECTRONIC FUNCTION WILL BE ACCEPTED.

Items Not Accepted

Let’s talk clothes! First off, bring your best and donate the rest. If an item is stained or faded Moo La La will not accept it. We want the racks to be full of like-new product! Faded and stained items DO NOT SELL and waste YOUR time and resources (hangers, paper, ink, etc) preparing them for our event. 

This sale we are implementing a new policy. Consignors that bring 5+ items with stains will be flagged in our online system, receive a warning letter, and potentially prevented from participating in future sales. Items will be returned to consignors at the end of the sale.

New inspection procedures will be used this sale to thoroughly check for stains after items are dropped off. Stains don’t sell, take up space on our sales floor, increase the work load, and hurt our sales reputation which impacts each consignor. So do your part and check thoroughly for stains before you bring them to our sale. Natural light by a window is best.

Unfortunately we will not accept the following items for our sale:

  • Out of Date Clothing- nothing over five years old, 3 years for maternity

As parents ourselves, our #1 concern is the safety and security of our participants. It is the CONSIGNOR’S RESPONSIBILITY, as seller/owner of the items, to ensure their items meet the required safety standards. Upon registration, each consignor will be required to sign a waiver accepting the liability of the items they bring, stating they have ensured that none of their items are recalled and all meet safety standards.

Please use the following resources to make sure that your item has not been recalled or is deemed unsafe for children:

  1. Consumer Product Safety Commission’s Searchable Recall list A searchable listing of ALL recalled products. (Choose the appropriate item category and click “Find”)

  2. CPSC’s Dangerous and Recalled Products Reference Guide Safety standards for CRIBS, PLAYPENS, PACK-N-PLAYS, CAR SEATS, BATH SEATS, BABY WALKERS, BABY GATES, MATTRESSES, TOYS and BUNK BEDS.
