We know many of our customers have been looking forward to the next Sprout Swap. It’s almost here!
Sprout Swap version 1.5 will happen August 21-23, 2009.
What is Sprout Swap? It’s a chance to find great deals on gently used cloth diapers, baby carriers and more all in one place. It’s also a chance for you to pass on your gently used baby items to other families!
Here’s how it works. Starting on July 28 and continuing through August 14, we will collect, tag and price items that you bring in. All items entered in to the swap are recorded and you set a minimum selling price, or we can work with you to set prices which would be competitive for the products.
During the weekend of August 21 the items will be displayed in the swap room at Sprout Soup. Any items that you are interested in can be purchased directly through Sprout Soup. On the last day of the swap, Sunday, August 23, items will be discounted for final sale.
All purchases are recorded, and the original owners are given the choice to take their commission in cash or Sprout Soup store credit.
Here’s what you can do to get ready. If you have items to sell, please make sure that they are clean and in the best condition possible. If you are selling cloth diapers, you may want to create small ‘lots’ of diapers that are similar in size and type. If you are selling baby carriers, look for the original instructions and packaging that the carrier came in. If you still have these items it will add value to your carrier. If you don’t have them, finding instructions online and printing them out to include with your carrier will be helpful. If your carrier is one that comes in sizes, please make sure it is easy to figure out what size it is.
We do not accept toys, furniture or clothing in the swap. We are willing to consider breastfeeding items, such as nursing pillows, new or excellent condition breast pads, freezing trays for breast milk, etc. If you have questions about what you should bring in, please feel free to call us.
We will have forms available that can be filled out before you bring your items in.
Our swap in February was a lot of fun and a great success, so we are happy to do it again! We’re looking forward to it as much as you are!
