So you and have a huge stack of cloth diapers, a carrier you don't use anymore or some natural toys you are ready to purge.. Yes, you are charitable but it seems with how much money you spent on this mountain of cloth you should be able to get more money for it, right? Well before you begin spending all of your time, energy and resources on the resale boards let me introduce you to the world of CONSIGNMENT.


So what exactly does CONSIGNMENT mean?
Our friends over at Wikipedia have a great explanation for consignment. Consignment is the act of consigning, which is placing a person or thing in the hand of another, but retaining ownership until the goods are sold or person is transferred. Features of consignment are: The relation between the two parties is that of consignor and consignee and not that of buyer and seller. The consignor is entitled to receive all the expenses in connection with consignment. The consignee is not responsible for damage of goods during transport or any other procedure. Goods are sold at the risk of consignor. The profit or loss belongs to consignor only. ORIGIN: The word consignment comes from Fr. consigner “to hand over or transmit”, originally from Lat. consignare “to affix a seal,” as was done with official documents just before being sent.

How does CONSIGNMENT work?
Well for each consignment company the terms of the consignment agreement may vary slightly but the way we do it at EcoBaby & Home is similar to most methods. Take a moment to read our CONSIGNMENT AGREEMENT to get an idea of the terms of consignment.
