The following are examples of what we accept – and don’t accept – for consignment at Rugrats Resale events. These lists are to serve as guides. We generally accept most children’s item provided it is in excellent condition. If you have questions about an item, feel free to contact us!

Children’s Furniture: Toddler beds, cribs, mattresses, changing tables, rocking chairs, gliders, and twin size headboards are all accepted. Furniture must not show signs of excessive wear.
New or Unopened Baby Items: New items sealed in factory packaging or with the original tags tend to sell very well. For example, unopened diapers and pacifiers sell quickly!
These items are generally accepted; however, they require some special attention. If you plan to consign any of the items listed here, please make sure you follow the restrictions carefully.
Maternity and Juniors Clothing: Only at the Rugrats Resale State College and Altoona events, only in season items, and only properly categorized and sized items. Maternity and Juniors will not be accepted in Bellefonte due to space limitations (unless otherwise noted). Items mismarked Maternity or Juniors will not be accepted.
Bedding: Used comforters, quilts, crib bumpers, pillows, sleeping bags, and any bedding item that contains fiber fill will only be accepted in the toddler bed/crib size. Twin sized and larger bedding with fiber fill is not accepted. Twin sized sheets and single layer blankets are accepted ONLY if they are kid-themed. PA state law requires that previously owned items with fiber fill be sprayed prior to sale. At this time, the spraying process is too labor intensive for us to accept larger items. For more details, see the spraying section at the bottom of the page.
Boppy Nursing Pillows: Boppy nursing pillows may be listed for sale. However, the pillows require spraying by PA state law. Please remove Boppy pillows from their cases prior to drop off. You can attach the pillow case to the Boppy with a safety pin.
