I had never consigned clothes before and decided to at the Once Upon a Child located off of Pinville Mathews Rd. Trusting that they are honest about not steeling your clothes, I dropped off a box with clothes and came back to decide if I was going to sell what they wanted to buy. What they wanted to pay for a few items was NOTHING compared to what they would have sold it for, so I decided not to sell anything and keep all my daughters clothes. I decided to re-fold all the clothes and noticed a four piece outfit missing. The only reason I noticed was because one of the four piece items was still in the box. I got so heated I stomped back into that store and demanded the rest of the outfit. Come to find out the item just ?disappeared?. The store decided to pay me for the item and raised he** for $30.00. I explained that I wanted this amount for my time, the outfit, the situation, and not to mention I don?t know how many other items of mine were missing as well. The manager was so furious, that she FINALLY gave in and told me she would mail me the check and without saying another word, rudely hung up the phone on me! Lesson learned? MAKE A CHECKLIST and inventory your items before leaving! To be honest, I wasn?t so upset about the clothes ? it was the principle and the fact that this could have happened to many people already without them even noticing and the only ones benefiting is them.
Pros: Inclosed playarea for children if parent is shopping
Cons: lots of old harshly used clothes
