Freshly laundered, completely dry, outfits together (no pins or hangers please), and laying flat in a structured container (box, basket, or bin). We purchase items based on demand, style (sold in the mall within the last 2-5 years), and condition. We will pass on any items with stains, fading, wear, holes, smoke, or mildew odors. We will check for broken or missing buttons, snaps, and zippers. Brand, size, and care labels must be present. (0-12 months we prefer purchasing complete outfits ONLY)


Must be manufactured within the last 5-10 years. Must have manufacturer name and model number. ALL original parts and pieces must be present. Seat cushions and all surfaces should be clean. Check battery compartment for corrosion. All equipment is checked for safety recalls at www.cpsc.gov.
