Our Acceptance Criteria

Our Online Consignment Acceptance Criteria

Items sent to Swap go to everyday families, just like yours!  Our best sellers are fashion forward items, that have been in the mall/department stores in the last 3 years. Look into your closet, if you or your little one hasn’t worn it in the last year, it may be time to try online consignment to earn some extra money parting with this loved item. 🙂

Often we are asked when is the best time to send in certain items based on their season.  The best time to send in your fall-winter items is at the end of summer, around July or August.  Spring-summer items should be sent in before the end of winter, around January or February.  Sending your items in during the optimal months can hep ensure that your items will sell quickly since shoppers are gearing up for the season ahead.
