If you are a first-time seller with Tadpoles, we recommend
you bring less than 100 pieces of clothing (one or two laundry
baskets) in order to get an idea of our pricing.
How we pay you out:
We pay you cash when you pick up the items we are unable
You will receive between 20% and 40% of our initial selling
Your offer is based on all items we accept and is not itemized.
Our computer system does not allow us to remove individual
items from your offer, so please do not bring items that
you don't want to sell.
You will be given a time to return to pick up your items
& your cash. Due to the high volume of sellers each
day, we are not able to call you when your items are ready.
You may accept or reject our offer during buying hours on
the day you are scheduled to pick up your items.
After the day you are scheduled to return, unpurchased items
will be donated and purchased items tagged. Your cash will
remain in the system for you to spend at any time or receive
as a cash payout during buying hours.
TIP: If this is your first time in to sell to us, you may
want to visit our store to get an idea of how much we are
able to sell things for and therefore, have an idea of what
we may be able to pay you.
Remember...the better your clothes look, the higher price
we will be able to put on them and the more you will receive
Should I bring my items to Tadpoles?
Take a good, long look at each item you're bringing and
ask yourself, "why am I interested in selling this
If the answer is:
-It's more than 2 or 3 years old
-It's worn out/stained
-It needs repair
-It looks dated or out of style
-It's not very good quality
-I just want all this old stuff out of my closet!
-I couldn't sell it at my yard sale/the consignment sale/the
other two consignment stores I took it to, so I thought
I would bring it to you before I take it to Goodwill.
-It's been in storage for several years and I just want
Stop!! Shoppers would feel the same
way you do about these things so it's unlikely Tadpoles
will accept them. You might consider making a charitable
donation of these garments.
See You At Tadpoles!
