Shopping Tips


Entry is free for everyone at the One Sparrow Kids Consignment Sale. All sales are final and there are no returns or exchanges!  We accept Cash, Check or Credit Cards.  A 5% facility fee will be added onto all transactions at the sale (except Dollar Dash).  Please be prepared to show identification at check-out if using a credit card.

Remember that Volunteers and Consignors shop before we open to the public!
Visit "Consigning" and "Volunteering" for more details about shopping early and beating the lines.

Tips and Tricks:

  • There is often a line to get in when the sale opens to the public.  Numbers will be handed out to shoppers in the event of a long line.  One number is given to each person and you cannot hold a space for someone arriving later.  Shoppers are metered into the building to ensure shopper safety, but the line does move quickly.
  • It is helpful to bring a large shopping bag or tub to help you carry your items while you shop.  Remember that clothing hangers can take up a large amount of space in a shopping bag.
  • If you are bringing children with you while you shop, they must remain with you at ALL times.  Children are not allowed during the volunteer pre-sale.  The most successful shoppers usually leave their children at home (keep in mind the sale is hot & crowded).  
  • Strollers are NOT allowed into the sale during shopping times.  If you arrive with a stroller, you will be asked to leave it outside the building. 
  • Please do not allow children to play with consigned toys while you shop.  Also, make sure they do not open toys or remove consignor tags, even if you plan to purchase an item.  Your help in this area is greatly appreciated.
  • The sale is organized into three major areas for your shopping convenience:
    •   Clothing
    •   Toys & Layette
    •   Large Equipment
