Shopping FAQ

  • What is a children’s seasonal consignment sale?

    Simply put, it’s a mother’s gold mine.  Our events are held several times a year.  The sales last for just a few days and offer thousands of new and gently-used children’s items at a fraction of retail.

    What is the difference between a consignment sale and a garage sale or resale shop?

    This sale is NOT a garage sale.  It is NOT a thrift sale.  We only accept quality items that are free of stains, meet current styles, and are in working order. 

    How can I shop early?

    Consignors receive one preview sale pass for the evening before the public sale begins. 

    Pre-Sale tickets are also available for purchase.  These shoppers are able to make purchases during a designated time of our pre-sale event.

    What forms of payment are accepted?

    All payments are made online with a credit card.  Due to the credit card fees that we incur, all purchases will include a small handling fee.
    How do I retrieve all of my great finds when shopping is over?

    Our team will sort all of the items and package them for you.  On Saturday, August 14th, you will pickup your items from Daystar Academy during your designated pickup time.
