CONSIGNMENT POLICY: Consignment Policy for Hobby & Toy Items (Electric Trains, RC Remote Control Trucks Airplanes Helicopters, Slot Cars, Dollhouses) for Resale at Oakridge Hobbies & Toys
With Oakridge Hobbies & Toys Consignment Program, now you don’t have to worry about your safety and security when strangers are coming to your home in response to your “For Sale” classified ad posts, or getting taken advantage of, by an all too common fraudulent online buyer, or going through the time, headaches and aggravation of a garage sale and people asking you questions about other things that aren’t for sale, or suspiciously checking out your home’s layout and garage’s security. And why give it away, when you can put some much needed cash in your own pocket. Just bring your items to our store, “Oakridge Hobbies & Toys”, and we’ll show it and sell it for you in our safe and professional retail store environment, and get you the money you need for other things. One person’s unwanted item is another person’s “treasure”.

We reserve the right to refuse any item that we do not feel will be a fit in our store or sellable at our location. We generally accept items we can price for $20 or more. Items submited with a value under $20, not part of a combined products bundle/grouping, will be considered a donation. Merchandise should be clean and unbroken.
FEES – Our consignment fees are 35% – 45%, based on whether we feel your item is to be a “sold in-store item”, or whether it is a “collectible item” that would be best served posted online to get you the best return and value on your item(s).(Minimum required selling value is $20 per item or combined products bundle/grouping). The consignment term is 120 days. Unsold items will be discounted 15% after 30 days, 25% after 60 days, 40% after 90 days. After 120 days, unclaimed and unsold items become the property of Oakridge Hobbies & Toys to discard, donate or further reduce to sell at our discretion. We do not provide any notice of your item’s 120 day expiration date. Checks are mailed by Oakridge Hobbies & Toys within 45 days of the sale. A nominal processing fee will be deducted.
Items usually sell within 60-90 days. The consignor may retrieve any item from the selling floor prior to the 120 day expiration date. However, any item retrieved in the first 90 days will be subject to our consignment fees, as stated above, to cover our operating expenses, retail space, showcasing, display use and handling.

(As a general rule, items should be priced on consignment beginning at or around 50% of original Manufacturer’s Advertised Price or Suggested Retail Price, provided the item is “like new” or in good condition.
