What to expect from the HWGA Inspectors
HWGA has a standard and it is important that we do our best to be true to that standard.
It is VERY important that consignors first follow all guidelines of tagging, preparation of merchandise and what is and isn’t accepted. Your attention to detail will tremendously reduce any confusion and possible rejection of your items.
Clothing Inspection – Clothes will be inspected for cleanliness, condition, and current style of each item. CLOTHING WITH SMELLS OF PETS, MOTHBALLS OR SMOKE WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED. Your tag must be correctly done and you MUST have labeled your items with masking tape or small label for easy identification if the tag is lost.
Shoe Inspection – Shoes will be inspected for scuff marks, excessive wear and current style. No tennis shoes unless in brand new condition.
Big/Outside Toys, Inside Toys, Strollers, Cribs, Pack-N-Plays, Baby Equipment, Nursery Decor, Infant Accessories – The HWGA Volunteers conducting the inspections will be looking for current merchandise, condition, cleanliness, and overall appearance.
Riding/Battery Operated Toys – These toys must have the battery included and will be checked to ensure that they work.
Follow all guidelines in accordance with our tagging, merchandise prep, merchandise acceptance and item limits.
Consignors should do a home inspection of all items before tagging and bringing them to the sale.
