How It Works

Selling your stuff with The Big Red Wagon is simple!  Gather all the new or like new things your kids, (baby to teen) have outgrown or no longer use.  Don't forget to include any maternity items as well!  As a Seller, you will be assigned your own unique seller account where you will enter and price each item you would like to sell.  Price tags will be generated from the information you enter and you attach these price tags to each item!  Drop your items off during your scheduled drop off appointment and that’s it!  Keep reading to learn about how easy it is to earn money with The Big Red Wagon!

You Price It! You Tag It! We Sell It!®:

You determine the price and tag the items you are selling.  There is no negotiating like garage sales during the sale.  You also earn a higher percentage of your sales than you would at a consignment shop.  You determine whether or not you would like your item to be part of the half-price sale day.  You can also decide if you would like your unsold items to be donated.  It’s all your choice! 


Bring it All!

Bring a little, bring a lot, bring it all!  There is no limit to the amount of good conditioned items you can sell!


Easy to use online tagging/tracking system

Enter and tagging your items couldn’t be easier!  It’s all automated.  When you register as a seller, you will be assigned your own, unique seller account.  This is where you will enter your items, print tags, schedule volunteer shifts and drop off appointments, and track your sales each evening of the sale.


Minimum Item Requirement

You must have a minimum of 50 items or a total value of $100 or more to be a seller.  If you have a referral, they too must meet this minimum requirement. 


Enter Once, Sell at Multiple Locations!

After the sale is over, you can pick up your unsold items and transfer them to another sale location during the same sale season without having to re-enter everything!  


Drop off your items, The Big Red Wagon does the rest!

Prepare your items, drop them off, and collect your check…THAT IS IT!!!  We advertise, organize, work the sale, clean up, and donate your unsold items on your behalf (unless you would like to pick them up after the sale.)


Pick up your items after the sale.

You can pick up your items after the sale if you are not donating them.  There will be a set time for pick-up.  If you do not pick up your items during that time, they will be donated on your behalf. 


Donate your unsold items & help local families in need!

We will be donating unsold items to charities.  You can choose whether or not you would like to donate your items.  If you do select donate, we will send you an itemized list of your donated items for your tax records along with a letter from the charity. 


What is the Preview Sale?

The Preview Sale takes place the night before the sale is open to the public.  All sellers will receive 2 passes to shop during the Preview Sale.  However, if you volunteer you can shop even earlier!  You will receive your passes at your scheduled drop off appointment.  Please Note:  You can be a non-selling volunteer at some sale locations.


What is the Half Price Preview Sale?

You must be a seller to participate in the Half Price Preview Sale.  This will take place the last day of the sale before the sale opens to the public!  Not all items are marked half price!


Quick Payment

The checks will be mailed within 2 weeks after the sale is complete.
