Consigning Families,
we are here for you!

Please Support The Children's Consignment Event Recognition Act of 2017!

Why Do We Need Protection?



We are guessing you LOVE children's consignment sales events—we do too! But In 2013, the Department of Labor ruled that we did not have the right to VOLUNTEER—that doing so violated the Fair Labor Standards Act of 1938. We believe we DO have the right to volunteer and we want to protect families who believe that too.



If those of us who sell our items at these events are not allowed to VOLUNTEER, our sales will have to change. That means many sales will no longer be able to:

  • Allow participants to exercise their right to help out at these events where their items are being sold
  • Serve as community-building events where we all get together to help one another sell and shop and save on items we need for our kids.
  • Operate the way we have been, providing an opportunity for our families across America to help balance tight budgets and provide the very best we can.



Right now, there is a bill in Committee that could PROTECT our rights to VOLUNTEER and help our families!  The Children’s Consignment Event Recognition Act of 2017 (H.R.884/S313) would protect our right to work together to create consignment events and allow them to continue serving and helping—the way they have been for 20 years. But we NEED your help!
