CONTACTLESS CONSIGNMENT UPDATE: Consignment intake process has changed due to COVID-19. Until further notice. See below:
Here it is! Our 'new normal' when it comes to our contactless consignment process. Please read carefully:
1.We will be accepting a limited number of drop offs per week. Up to 30 items per week, per consignor. You MUST already have a Consignor account opened with us. No new accounts will be opened at this time.
2.If you have items to consign, please send us an email at email@example.com OR a Facebook message to request a drop off (no phone calls or Instagram messages) Please wait for a confirmation reply with a drop off day before bringing your items to the store. Drop off hours will be between 11 & 3 on the day provided to you
3. Your items MUST be freshly washed & folded. Please place items in plastic grocery bags with your NAME & PHONE # securely inside. Absolutely no more than 30 items per drop off, please. Once received, bags will remain untouched for 72 hours before they are processed. We will NOT be sorting through your items on the spot. Anything deemed unacceptable for consignment will be donated. We will still be returning unsold items to you at the end of the consignment period, only if requested.
4. IMPORTANT: please go through your items carefully in natural sunlight to check for stains, wear, holes, stretched fabric, pilling and excessive fading. Pay close attention to cuffs, backs of pants/shorts, collars, zippers and buttons. Check toes, heels, soles & laces of shoes. If it is something you wouldn't purchase because of any of the reason listed, please don't bring it in. Also, stick to the brands list located further down this page.
PLEASE NOTE: if we are receiving too many items that we are unable to consign, we won't be able to continue our program. Please follow the guidelines.
5. We will be taking Summer consignment until June 30th. This includes: shorts, tanks, t-shirts, jeans, hoodies, lightweight pants, dresses, swimsuits, running shoes, sandals, skirts, athletic wear, sun hats
THANK YOU for your support. Please be patient while we give this a try and make changes as necessary. We know this is a huge change from how we usually operate but we feel it's necessary at this time. We appreciate each and every one of you and we're confident we can make this work! Drop off scheduling begins NOW!

Brands & Sorting
Sort your brand-name clothing and shoes from newborn to size 14. Please check carefully for stains, holes, excessive wear, fading, odours, broken zippers or missing buttons. Clothing must have tags indicating brand and size. Please remove personal name labels (ex. Mabel’s Labels) Shoes & boots should be in excellent shape with minimal wear and free from dirt and debris, including the soles. We prefer clothing that was purchased within the past 3 years in keeping with current styles. 50 folded items per drop off to ensure quick entry into our computerized system (Or, about the amount you can fit in a regular laundry basket!) Please DO NOT bring items to the shop in a garbage bag. Use a laundry basket, small box or reusable grocery bag.

Bring your items in during store hours anytime from Monday – Saturday. If you are a new consignor, we will collect your information and set you up with a Consignor Account. During your visit, we will go through your items and select what we can take based on condition, style, sizes needed & what we know will sell well in the store. Please allow us 10 minutes per drop off to sort through clothing. Sometimes there will be items that we can not accept. TIP: Bring in your items early in the season for your best return! Items received toward the end of the season will be discounted quicker.
You receive 40% of the selling price of your items. As your Consignor Account grows, you may use your accumulated balance towards purchases made on anything in the store. This includes gently used items and new toys, games, gifts & more! Alternatively, you may request a cheque for accounts $25 or more. For accounting purposes, after 1 year of inactivity on your account, your funds will only be available as store credit. All inactive accounts will be charged a service fee of $5/year.
The consignment period is 90 days from the time your items are entered into our system. When you drop off your items, you may request a return date. If you would like unsold items returned to you, contact us by the Return Date and we will pack up your remaining items for pick up. If we do not hear from you, items become property of Spring Children and will be donated or may be sold in a season-end sale. Donations are made to local charitable groups including Connections Perth.
Thanks for your interest in consigning with Spring Children! We look forward to a great partnership! Please give us a shout if you have any questions or to check the status of your account.
