Acceptable Items

  • New Items (with tags or in packaging)
  • Like New Items: Ask yourself, “Would I wrap this and give it proudly to a stranger?” If the item is not in excellent “like new” condition, it is not appropriate for the holiday sale. No missing pieces.  No decal imperfections.
  • Non-Holiday Clothing Items MUST BE NEW WITH TAGS UNLESS THEY ARE BOUTIQUE BRANDS (We will now allow BOUTIQUE BRAND clothing for both children and adults. Think of brands like Lululemon, Columbia, Lily Pulitzer, Kate Spade, Nike, Prana, Athleta, Mini Boden, Adidas, Under Armour, and more. These items should be in like-new condition but do not need to be new with tags (excluding Target, Walmart, Carters, Children’s Place, Old Navy, etc.). Remember, the items should be nice enough to wrap and gift to a stranger!
  • Holiday Apparel 
  • Holiday Decor/Decorations (excellent-used condition or better)
