Are there items that you will not take?

                We do not to take car seats unless they are part of a system with high chair and/or stroller components (like the Nuna Mixx/Pipa system).  We also will not sell any gear or furniture that has had a recall put on it by the manufacturer.  No socks and underwear.

I have large furniture items, should I just bring them in?

                No.  Please call or email pictures before bringing in large items like cribs, dressers, and large toys. seesawconsignment@gmail.com 

How do you determine the price for an item?

                We look first at the condition of the item to determine new, like new, or gently used status.  Then we look at brand, style, retail value, and secondary market value.  Initial prices set by SeeSaw may be reduced at any time based on condition, season, and demand for the item.

What is my share of the proceeds?

                Sellers receive 40% of sale price.  Higher priced items are negotiable.

How do I know if I have sold anything?

                It is your responsibility as the consignee (Seller) to manage your account.  Please contact us by calling 415-295-7979 or email us at seesawconsignment@gmail.com to check in.  Always leave the first and last name and phone number on the account when inquiring about proceeds.  Seller forfeits all proceeds not collected within 12 months of sale of item. 

How will I get Paid for my stuff?

                We pay out cash at our San Anselmo location if you have $50.00 or less, otherwise we will cut you a check.  We are happy to mail out checks to the address on the consignment contract upon request.  We will also cut a check and mail it to a charity of your choice, just let us know.  

            What happens if my items get rejected or do not sell?

                Items stay on the floor/posted for 2 to 3 months.  You will be notified via email of items that did not meet our screening standards or did not sell.  You must respond within 7 days if you want your items returned to you, otherwise your items are subject to donation to a local charity.  We are currently making donations the following organizations.
