We are seasonal pop-up consignment events where people can both buy and sell gently used children’s and women’s items.
How is selling at a consignment pop-up event different from traditional consignment stores or resale stores?
You will get the largest percentage of your sales from pop-up events compared to resale stores. You get to control the pricing of your items. At retail stores you get a very small fraction of what they sell it for. Being a pop-up event enables us to keep our overhead costs down and as a result we’re able to pass those savings onto you with a greater percentage of your profits!
What are the benefits of consigning versus other methods?
Consignment allows you to get a good amount of profit on your items AND is an easier process compared to online groups where you do all the work yourself. Consigning at our event is also much safer because you don’t have to meet up with strangers at various locations. With resale, you sell your items for a very small amount to a store. You get more exposure with hundreds of shoppers at once place compared to yard sales.
Where and when are these sales held?
The next sale will be October 14th and 15th, 2017, at the Lake County Fairgrounds in Crown Point.
How do I become a consignor?
Consignors may sign up for any of our events by clicking here. After you register, you should go to our consignors page to read about how our inventorying (preparing and tagging your items) works.
How do I shop the sales?
You may shop any of our sales. The pre-sale for consignors and volunteers is October 14th from 9-10am. General sales open Saturday October 14th at 10am, which is open to the public. Sunday October 15th is our half price day, so don’t miss out on great deals for gently used children’s items!
My organization would like to fundraise. Would we be able to do this through Tiny Treasure Trove?
Yes, we can provide an easy way for you to fundraise. Please visit our Fundraising page for details.
Do consignors need to stay during sales times to sell their items?
No. Consignors don’t need to be present for the sale. However, they may choose to volunteer at the sale to receive a greater percentage of their total sales. Consigning volunteers will also be admitted into the volunteer pre-sale before the consignor pre-sale.
What if I want to participate but I don't want to tag and/or prepare?
You may use our Concierge Service in which we tag your items for you. We do have a limited number of spots for this service, so it is first come first serve. Click here for details.
Can I return an item I bought from one of the sales?
Apologies, but ALL sales are final!!! Items are inspected at drop off to make sure they’re in good and working condition. There are batteries in the battery items and outlets to test plug-ins. Still, we highly suggest that you test all items BEFORE you buy them. This includes checking for tears, stains, missing pieces, working order and more.
How do I get into the pre-sale?
To get into the pre-sale you need to be a consignor, volunteer, or win a pre-sale pass. For a chance to win a pre-sale pass, be sure to like and follow our our Northwest Indiana/NWI Facebook Page for details on how to win!
Is there a minimum number of items I must consign to participate?
You must consign at least 20 items or $100 value. There are no maximum number of items.
What type of payments do you accept?
We accept cash, credit and debit cards. Sorry, we do not accept checks.
