PREPARE YOUR ITEMS for sale. Read the “Prepare, Price & Tag Your Items" and "What You Can & Cannot Sell" downloads carefully. We are no longer accepting maternity, bedding & breast pumps. The Kids' Exchange reserves the right to remove items from the sales floor that do not meet our standards.

TAG YOUR ITEMS Read the “Prepare, Price & Tag Your Items” download carefully. You can purchase pre-cut tags from us (50 tags for $3.00) or you can use the provided tagging template download below.
REDUCE Decide whether to reduce your item to half price. PLEASE REDUCE! If you don't reduce, your item probably won't sell.
DONATE Decide if you want your unsold items to be donated to charity at the end of the sale. PLEASE DONATE! Lake George United Methodist Church needs your items. This is a central part of the Kids' Exchange program, and we urge our consignors to donate most of their unsold merchandise.
GET HANGERS Use your own clear or white plastic hangers (including types like Carter’s, Osh Kosh, Old Navy, Bon Ton) or use ours. WE DO NOT ACCEPT WIRE HANGERS OR COLORED HANGERS.

GET PAID Keep 70% of the price of the items you sell. The remainder goes to the nonprofit Community Exchange Foundation. A $10.00 registration fee will be deducted from your sale proceeds to help offset the sale's costs, including advertising and insurance.

During drop-off the Quality Control Team, which examines every item of clothing before it is put out on the sales floor, will select the top three consignors whose entire lot of shoes and clothing has been meticulously prepared.
The top three quality consignors will have the consignor fee for the current sale waived. They will also receive 80% of their entire sales (not just clothing!) instead of the usual 70%.
A top quality lot will look like this:
