Donating Unsold Items

Kids EveryWEAR Consignment Sale makes HUGE contributions at the end of each sale. Please choose to donate your unsold items! It makes a difference in someone's life! Remember that any items you tag with WHITE CARDSTOCK will be donated if they remain unsold at sale end. Unsold items primarily are given to:

  • Catholic Parish Outreach (CPO)
  • UNC NICU
  • Wake Neo-Natal
  • Raleigh Rescue Mission
  • Thrifty Charitable Foundation
  • Wilburn Elementary School - a lower-income Wake County school
  • A Raleigh area women’s group that brings books for Chapel Hill and Durham county schools in need and also brings books to nursing/retirement homes.
  • A program and monthly sends a box of books to an APO address in New York where the military then sends the books on to US Troops serving overseas.
  • A Wake County High School English teacher for their programs.
  • All books of plays are brought to a Wake county high school drama department.
  • Boxes of elementary teacher supplies will be delivered directly to the teacher work rooms in a lower income school.
  • Boxes of teacher supplies and books not as appropriate for the public school system are being brought to a homeschool supply store that has a place in the front of their store where “free for the taking” supplies can be left.
  • Specifically requested clothing is gathered for 2 different Wake county elementary schools for their “closets,” clothing kept for children of need. They even asked for underwear and socks as they say some kids come to school with no underwear on.
  • Social Services collects book bags, luggage, and pajamas to send kids to new homes with.
  • Eckerd Kids' Angel's Watch offers support for families in crisis in the form of temporary and voluntarily foster care, while also coordinating services to help assist the family in getting back on their feet. Angel’s Watch is dedicated to helping preserve the family unit and avoiding state custody in situations where the child has a loving, caring family who has fallen on hard times. The most common issues that they work with are homelessness, financial crisis, medical crisis, substance abuse, and domestic violence.

We are not considering new donation recipients at this time.

We also ask that anyone who wants to do so bring a pack of diapers or a can of formula at drop-off or during the sale. These items are especially precious to many of the families we help.

More Donating Perks...

  • TAX DONATION RECEIPTS are available to White Tag Consignors! Pick yours up at Drop-off by showing us your white tagged items BEFORE you put your items out.
  • White Tag Consignors shop one hour before other consignors for full price (on Consignor full price shopping day only)! Pick up your early shopping pass at Drop-off with your tax donation receipt.
  • Consignors are welcome to tag a few special or high dollar items they'd prefer to hang onto with colored cardstock. So long as you tag the majority (90%) of your items in white, you enjoy all the privileges of White Tag Consignors!
  • Remember: Approximately 1/3 to 1/2 of our entire inventory sells during the sales to volunteers and consignors! At least another half of what remains sells on the first public sale day! With rare exception does a consignor not sell the vast majority of her merchandise unless it is overpriced or sub-standard. Most of our veteran consignors allow their items to be discounted, make a ton of money and sell 90% of what they bring!

"We at St. Mark's appreciate very much your letting us come to the consignment sale to pull and take clothes and shoes for the children at Wilburn School. We relay to you the thanks of those children and staff.

Thank you also for the six boxes of elementary school books for teachers to use in their classroom libraries or send home with children who might benefit from and enjoy the reading of these books.

You are doing a great deal to help agencies trying to assist children and parents and teachers. We are thankful that you are willing to get in touch with and work with us as we attempt outreach to people at Wilburn School."

Helpful Hints for Drop-off:

  • PLEASE keep your children with you at all times! Unsupervised children will be given an espresso and a puppy!
  • Tagging lots of books? Pre-sorting into the categories at the bottom of our Preparing Merchandise page will make for a quick drop off! Because we sort our books so carefully, we sell a much higher percentage of them than other sales! At drop-off, you will put your books in bins by these categories. We will shelve them for you. This means we have the MOST AMAZING BOOKSTORE! No time to sort your books? Bring them in a box you can leave behind and leave the box of books with our amazing volunteers to shelve them for you.
  • Boutique Brands hang on the regular clothing racks by size! Please continue to designate them with the word "boutique" written across the top of the tag and add curling ribbon to the hanger so that customers who prefer these brands can find them easily!
  • HANG Juniors and Men's clothing on the designated racks in Big Boy and Ladies/Jr's storefronts! Do NOT place them with the largest girl's or boy's sizes!
  • Juniors, Ladies' and Young Men's sizing should follow the exact size written on the inside label. Unlike children's clothing for which you should use only numeric sizing, mark your tags for these teen/grown up items with XS, S, M, L, XL, XXL or the numeric size AS WRITTEN ON THE ITEM'S LABEL and add the word Jrs., Ladies' or Men's in front of the size. Please do not make up numeric sizing for Jrs., Women's or Men's clothing! Also, men's pants should be labeled with the waist and length eg. 30x32. Remember that we DO NOT accept men's business attire but only young, trendy brands designed for teenagers.
  • Shoes hang from zip ties on racks. PLEASE bring paperclips to hang each pair of your shoes! Have extras? Leave them for other consignors by putting them on the shoe racks in the small boxes on each pole. If your bank gives away paper clips, would you collect them for us? Thanks!
  • Boys & Girls clothing will be separated by gender and size in 4 storefronts - the sizes contained in each store will be clearly signed. This makes for much less congested shopping and more rack space. We hope you enjoy!
  • Boy accessories (belts, socks, undies, hats...) go in the corresponding boys clothing store, according to size.
  • Girl accessories (hairbows, undies, tights, socks...) go in the corresponding girls clothing store, according to size.
  • Tops and shorter items will hang on the top racks, and pants/dresses and longer items will hang on the bottom racks in our Fall sale. In our Spring/Summer sale, shorts hang on the top rack and shirts and longer items hang on the bottom rack, so group your clothing items accordingly.
  • Items with a size range written on the label, i.e. 3-6 months, 6-9 months, 12-18 months or 18-24 months will hang with the LARGEST size in the range. So Old Navy jeans labeled 6-12 month will hang on the 12-month rack.
  • 24 months and 2T items will be hung on the same rack.
  • Roller Skates, Rollerblades, and Ice Skates display with Sports Equipment in store 10. Athletic Cleats display with the appropriate size and gender shoes.
  • Dance leotards hang by size on the racks with all clothing.
  • Costumes hang by size on the racks with all clothing. If we can, we offer round racks for costumes at our Fall sale.
  • Heavy winter coats at the Fall sale hang with clothing by size.
  • Nursing-specific shirts hang separately from other maternity wear, so sort and band them separately as you prepare for drop-off.
  • Ladies/Jr's items selling space is quite limited. Items which meet guidelines perfectly will be displayed. Items which clearly do not meet guidelines on our Ladies/Jr's page will not be displayed at all. Thank you for your attention to these guidelines and understanding of our limitations!
  • Hang pictures in Housewares on the nails on the walls for best display. Be sure your tag is on the FRONT of pictures.

What to do in advance to prepare for a pleasant drop-off experience:

  • Group all clothing items by gender and size. Place a rubber band around the hangers of each group. Layer rubber-banded groups in boxes, keeping girls and boys separate.
  • Check each tag for a PRICE!
  • Bring an unlabeled large cardboard box to leave in the stockroom of Store 10 or 10b (Large Indoor Toys). We use these for Sort.
  • If you are bringing a crib, you must assemble it at the sale. Please bring any needed tools. NO DROP-SIDE CRIBS!!!
  • Make certain you have pre-registered online and have received e-mail confirmation. Hotmail and AOL users often do not get their email confirmation. Be sure you have kidseverywear.com in your safe senders list. If you lose your email confirmation, bring your ID and code to the sale to shop early. Email to register ONLY if you do not have web access or experience problems.
  • Double check that items have been properly hung and tagged.
  • Double check that tags and pieces are secure.
  • Double check that tag info is accurate and complete.
  • Pack an emergency kit with blank tags, pens, packing tape, cable ties and safety pins, just in case you arrive and find a tag has wiggled loose!

Drop-off procedure

  • Bringing a wagon, luggage cart, rolling suitcase, stroller, rolling rack or dolly (labelled with your name and cell # in case you leave it behind) will help you transport large quantities of items from your car to the racks and shelves. DO NOT DRAG THESE ITEMS DOWN THE HALL! THEY MUST ROLL TO USE THEM IN THE HALLWAYS!

When you arrive you will:

  1. Go to REGISTRATION CHECK-IN, centrally located in the hallway between all storefronts (and labeled on our store map).
    1. BEFORE putting any of your items out, verify your code on our Check-in Sheets against one of your tags! Then HIGHLIGHT your row of information if all is correct.
    2. If your name is missing, your CODE IS WRONG, or any information is missing or incorrect, please see GAIL.
  2. If you have large, bulky toys or infant equipment to unload, pull up to curb and quickly unload just those items to the curb.
  3. Move car to a designated mall parking spot immediately. The mall does tow illegally parked cars at drop-off! Do NOT block the fire lanes.
  4. If you white-tagged, get your early shopping pass and donation receipt at the designated table BEFORE putting out your items so that we can see your tags.
  5. Place all items in designated places on sales floor of each store. Racks, bins, and shelves are clearly labeled and there are ceiling signs and volunteers available to direct you. This part goes much more smoothly if you have pre-sorted items as recommended!
  6. Cribs, portable cribs, swings and ALL furniture must be assembled by you to display effectively. Unassembled items may be removed from the sales floor.
  7. Stack empty, unlabeled box in the back or dressing rooms of Store 10 (Ride-ons store) or 10b.
  8. Once your items are in the proper spots and assembled as required, we ask that you exit quickly to keep traffic flowing smoothly! We realize that it is VERY tempting to browse, but ask that you refrain and join us at your earliest possible shopping convenience! There will still be volunteer slots available (see computer check-in personnel), should you decide that you just have to get back early once you see all the goodies! REMEMBER: Volunteer 24 hours and shop VERY FIRST and with MINIMAL CROWDS!
  9. As you exit, our staff will check your bags/luggage/bins as a security measure. We know you, as a consignor, will understand.
