HELPFUL TIPS TO PREPARE FOR YOUR CONSIGNMENT SESSION 

 - Hangers will be provided by Trendy Tots. Please do not bring your items on hangers. 

 - Each section at Trendy Tots has different brands that sell the best. To help you in deciding which items will sell best we have given a few of our top selling brands for each section in addition to our list of brands we accept and do not accept.

- Infant Sizes Newborn-12 Months must be in the BEST condition. Mother's receive an over-abundance of gifts for their newborns. They end up with more than what they get the chance to put to use. For a shopper to purchase something in this size range it must be something they do not have at home, in the higher end brands, and in excellent condition. For this reason, Trendy Tots only accepts/sells the items that you would take your infant out of the home in, rather than the items they hang out in home in ( onesies, layettes, sleepers, knit sets are a pass)  Our most popular brands in infants include; Gymboree, GAP, Janie N Jack, & Ralph Lauren.

-Toddler Sizes 18m-5t- this is a very FAST selling size range at Trendy Tots and families are buying full wardrobes for their toddlers as they grow very quickly and actually live in their clothing day to day, compared to their days as infants when they only wore their trendy clothing for special occasions. Our most popular brands in toddlers includes; Gymboree, GAP, Ralph Lauren, Hanna Anderson, Old Navy, The Children's Place, & Mini-Boden.

-School Age Sizes- XS(4/5), S(5/6), M(7/8), L(10/12). This is when kids begin to care about what they are wearing and also care about the style and brand of what they wear. Our most popular brands include; Justice, GAP, PS, Seventy Seven Kids, & Old Navy. Athletic Wear has become our most popular style of clothing. Trendy Tots will accept all TRENDY athletic wear in addition to our most sought after brands including Under Armour, Nike, & Adidas.

- Tween/ Junior Sizes- XL Youth ( 14/16) XS Juniors, S Juniors. This is our MOST popular selling size at Trendy Tots! It is not easy to find this size range second hand and to have it be TRENDY is also a challenge that Trendy Tots is always up for meeting and usually exceeds! By this size, kids REALLY care about what they are wearing and branding is EVERYTHING! For this reason, Trendy Tots will only accept the following brands in these sizes: 10-16 Justice, Gap, Old Navy,Abercrombie, Hollister, American Eagle, Aeropostale, PINK( Victoria's Secret) Forever 21. Trendy Tots will accept all TRENDY athletic wear in addition to our most sought after brands including Under Armour, Nike, & Adidas.
