Can I sell clothes that are not for the current season? No, all items must be in season except bathing suits and dress up.

Where do donated items go? Any item marked for donation will go to  local charities.

What if I find that an item is missing from my pick up pile?  It sometimes happens that items may become lost during the course of  the sale. We do our best, however it is not always possible to account  for every item. Items lose their tags or mates, toys not secured  properly lose pieces. If you are missing items at consignor pick up  please let us know and we will do our best to locate it.

Sale FAQ

What exactly is a kids consignment sale? Many churches, some mom's clubs,  some non-profits and a few for-profit organizations hold community children's  consignment sales twice a year (Spring and Fall) to allow families to sell  gently used and new kids items 

How can you shop the sale early? 

  • Consignors
  • Volunteers
  • First Time Expecting Moms
  • Paid ($10 at the door)

Can you  bring your children with you to the sale? 

There is no childcare, but children are welcome if they will stay with you and can leave toys and items for sale alone. Babywearing is recommended over a stroller due to space constraints, but strollers are welcome!


Is there a  fee to get into the sale and shop? 

There is no fee during regular sale hours or discount hours! There is a $10 fee to access the presale for those who want to attend but do not qualify to get in for free.

What forms of payment are accepted? 

Cash and all major credit cards. 


 How does it work? The Children's Museum of NH  Consignment Sale has two parts. The first is the drop, second the shop.  Consignors bring their sorted, organized, hung and tagged items to the  drop. Then consigners and anyone else (the public) shops for nearly new,  gently used clothing, gear & furniture. There is a pre-sale for  consignors, volunteers and new moms, as well as public hours. Why participate? Consignors earn 60% or more of  the revenue from their sold items. All other proceeds from the event  benefits the Children's Museum of NH, which delivers playful learning  experiences to families throughout the state. 


Is everything half price during the Half Price Sale?  No, our consignors choose whether or not they want an item to be sold at  half price so some items may not be discounted. The tag will indicate  whether an item is discounted or not.


Can I hold items for the half price sale? No.
