If you would like to become a seller, visit www.fairyandfireflies.com. Information about selling, seller agreement documents, and FAQs are all available to read over. Then use the registration tab to sign up and schedule your drop off time.
There is no cost to sell with us. Our store model is designed so that a seller can pass along their gently used clothing and shoes to families that would like to purchase items that don’t break the bank. The seller is compensated for clothing that is sold and may choose to collect what doesn’t sell, (or donate unsold items).
Item drop off and pick up times will be scheduled. You will select your drop off time when you complete the registration form at www.fairyandfireflies.com. Sellers will be given their pick up date/time in person at drop off. Reminders and any other important communication will be sent via email from firstname.lastname@example.org.
Items will be collected and sold in 4 week increments. They will be on the floor full price for 3 weeks, and on the 4th week items will drop in price by 25%. (If a seller chooses not to offer clothes at the discounted price, they may schedule a pickup time before the discount start date).
Seller numbers are assigned by our store to identify you specifically to our store. We will be doing all of the tagging, pricing, and selling. Sellers will only be responsible for drop off and pick up.
At this time the number of total items per consignor is 100. Maximum number will be 200 items per seller with a 5.00 handling fee after the 1st 100 items. Clothing items in sizes Newborn through 9 Months will be limited to 50 per seller per 100 items. (Shoes and accessories do count toward this number.)
Sellers will receive 40% off the selling price per item. Checks will be issued by mail 1-2 weeks after the scheduled pick up date.
Quality control & acceptable items to consign include gently-used seasonal appropriate clothing items & shoes. Out-of-season items will be pulled from the sales floor. www.fairyandfireflies.com will list ‘now accepting’ season information, and specific size/gender needs if applicable.
Please be extremely selective when choosing your items to sell. Do not wait until the last minute to gather and prepare your items, as this often leads to oversights. Damaged items hurt our reputation in the community as well as hurt overall sales. Repeat, multiple, or deliberate instances of items in unacceptable condition will result in a seller being unable to sell again.
Here are a few guidelines to keep in mind:
”Promotional” shirts will NOT be accepted (i.e., freebie shirts given as business advertisements, vacation bible school shirts, camps, etc.). Unpersonalized school spirit wear WILL be accepted (however, no field day, class specific shirts are allowed, or personalized sport jerseys).
Shoes must be cleaned, there should be no dried dirt/mud caked onto the soles of shoes. Please wash/launder clothing before arriving. Everything must be sales floor ready or it will be set home with the seller immediately.
If possible try to sort your clothing by gender and size. This will ensure a smoother drop off. Our racks are labeled by size (0-3 Months, 6 Months, 9 Months, 12 Months, 18 Months, 24 Months, 2T, 3T, 4T, 5, 6, 7-9, 10-12, 14+).
If you wish to donate your unsold items at the end of your 4 weeks. These items will be donated to either a local charity helping women and young children or be donated back to the sales floor to fill any low stock needs.
Sellers will be required to sign a Seller Agreement at drop off which states that Fairy & Fireflies is not responsible for lost or stolen items and that all unsold items not picked up during pick-up times will be donated immediately.
We will not hold unsold items past your scheduled drop off time. At this time, unsold items will be sent to charity. We do not have the space to store items for a later pickup.

Thank you for consigning with us! We look forward to working with you.
