Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Do I have to sit at a table and sell my items?
A: No, the process is very simple. You register to consign, tag your items and sign up for a time to drop off your items. We organize all of the items by gender and size and do the selling for you.
Q: Where is your store?
A: Fairytale Threads is an event, not a store. Our Fall Event will be 3 days long so mark your calendar for Thursday, Friday and Saturday, June 27-29th in Austin.
Q: What items are sold at your event?
A: Fairytale Threads will have children’s clothing from newborn to kid’s size 16 (up to 2T at the Baby event), strollers, highchairs, toys, strollers, climbers, slides, travel cribs, children’s furniture, maternity clothes and even more for moms and kids!
Q: How much do consignors make?
A: The average consignor check from our events is over $325! It all depends on how much you bring.
