It is the goal of Just Like New to offer only the very best items at our children’s consignment events. We will not allow you to sell recalled or unsafe items. Our #1 goal is the safety and security of our shoppers /consignors. In light of the alarming number of recent toy and childen’s product recalls, Just Like New feels it is necessary to help parents become better informed about children’s product safety. It is the responsibility of our consignors to make sure all of their products offered for sale meet the required safety standards. Consignors will review the Consumer Products Safety Commission’s website within one (1) week of the sale to ensure that NONE of their items are subject to recall.
Below for your convenience, you will find additional links to important children’s product safety websites. We welcome any additional recall information or feedback that you may have.
