Once the item sells:
You can choose between 40% in check or 60% in store credit* of the item’s final selling price. Check/credit for consigned items may be collected 7 days after an item is sold, in order to accommodate our return policy. Checks must be picked up in store during buying hours (or if you request in advance it can be ready outside of buying hours). If you would like a check mailed there will be a $2 charge.
What if the items don’t sell within 90 days?
At the end of the contract period, all unsold items automatically become property of Mommy’s Trading Post and will be marked down or donated. If you would like your items back, it is your responsibility to collect them before the end of the contract period. Due to the large volume of consignors, we do not notify you when your items sell, however, you will receive a link to check the status online, or you are welcome to call anytime to check the status.
We will do our best to safeguard your items, but are not responsible for loss or damage.
