During these challenging economic times, wouldn’t it be wonderful to help another family, and increase your own bottom line at the same time? Consider consigning your kid’s gently used items.   

Children grow fast!  As “new parents”, we run out and buy all of the “must have” items for our babies.  In almost no time at all, those same items are occupying “prime real estate” in our homes, and our kids have moved on to the next want/need phase.  The overall value of our purchases is a small fortune, and it is difficult to part with them and receive nothing in return.  This is the reason the Babies, Tots n’ More Seasonal Consignment Event was created. We provide consigning families an opportunity to earn cash on their gently used items, while shopping families are able to buy quality items at a fraction of the original price. 

Our events feature maternity items and anything kid-related, up to youth size 16.  We accept all brands, as long as the items are in great condition.   No stains, rips, tears, or overly worn items allowed.  You set your own prices, and we sell them for you.  Sound incredible?  It is!  This past Spring, we had five consignors earn over $1,000 on the sale of their items.  Just imagine how clean their house was after the event!  The average consignor earns approximately $250.

Selling at our event is easy:

  • Register as a consignor at
  • Use our on-line database to price your items
  • Drop off your prepared items at our sale venue
  • Pick up your unsold items, or have us donate them for you (tax deductable)
  • We send you a check for 65% - 70% of the profit within two weeks of the event!

At Our Fall 2012 Event:  We anticipate 1,000+ shoppers, and over 20,000 items

Your items will receive maximum exposure during our three-day event.  Moms travel from throughout Chicagoland to shop our incredible deals.  They are delighted to be able to purchase great items for their children, even if they have a limited budget.

We sort all of the unsold items, and consignors have the option of picking them up, or allowing us to donate them to local charities on their behalf.  “Giving back” to the community is another reason to feel good about consigning.  Our Fall donations will be facilitated by More Than Milk, Inspired moms making the world a better place.

We would love to have you participate in our event.  For more information and to sign up as a consignor, check out the Babies, Tots n’ More website at  There you will find everything you need to get started, including a helpful pricing guide.  Our Fall Event will be held at Lil’ Kickers, located at 2640 W. Bradley Place (near Addison & Western).  We are open to the public on August 31 and September 1, 2012.  Consignors, volunteers and first-time moms shop our pre-sale on August 30th.

Happy consigning!  Don't forget to enter the NPN New Parent Must Haves Giveaway!!!
