  • When you drop off to us, we buy directly from your bag within 4 days and the transaction is over (other than you picking up your cash or using your store credit). The money or store credit you are notified about is not an offer for you to accept or reject. By dropping off, you have agreed for us to buy/sell your items at the price we deem acceptable. Please familiarize yourself with our pricing before dropping off.

  • You will have one week after drop-off to pick up any leftovers after which your items will be donated. We notify you of your bag being processed via email, however it is your responsibility to know your last day to pick up before donation occurs.

Larger & Specialty Items.


  • Large items can be dropped off during regular business hours. If the store is busy, we may ask that you wait while we help customers trying to check out.

  • We request that you call the morning you are planning on bringing in a large item, to make sure we need it or have space for it.

  • If the item has small parts they must all be included.

  • If the item requires batteries, working batteries MUST be included.

  • You must be able to fully assemble/disassemble the item for our salesperson to properly inspect.

  • We consign items with higher resale value such as strollers, co-sleepers, swings. Our general starting price is about 1/3 of the lowest available new retail price we can find online.

  • An initial price is decided upon for the first 30 days. After that, the price will be lowered by 10% the next 30 days, without notifying the consignor. If the item is still in the store after 60 days, we will ask the consignor to come pick up the item.

  • If you do not wish for the item to sell for less than the originally agreed upon price, it is up to you to keep track of the date and come and get the item prior to the next price drop.

  • You will have 7 days, after you are notified, to come pick up an item that didn’t sell, unless you call to make other arrangements. If we don’t hear from you, the item will be considered a donation after the 7 day pick-up period.

  • We ask that you do not cross-list an item elsewhere while it is in our store.

  • We offer 50% of the selling price for store credit and 40% of selling price for cash, upon the sale of consigned items.

    * The Nesting House reserves the right to ask you to pick up the item prior to the end of the 60 day period or to call you to re-negotiate the price
