Piles of kids' clothes that tell a story of growth spurts and seasons passed.

Maternity Gear?

Those once-essential items now idle, gathering dust.

Time? Who has it?

The mere thought of photographing, listing, and haggling feels like a second job you didn't sign up for.

If you're silently saying, "That's me,"
you're exactly where you need to be.

Welcome to Lightly Loved Auctions!

Hey there!

I'm Kristine, a fellow parent navigating the whirlwind of growth spurts, playdates, and all those "never-worn" tags on clothes that somehow, our kids skipped a size to miss. If you're like me, your home is a treasure trove of memories in the form of outgrown onesies, once-loved toys, and maternity wear that you're parting with a touch of nostalgia.
 
Let's be real – the thought of sorting, snapping pics, and posting each tiny sock or toy online is daunting. And the "is this available?" messages without follow-through?

PXL_20230502_163143823 (1).jpg

No thank you.

This is precisely why we at LL Auctions, which my husband and I have proudly co-owned and grown into a trusted auction house since 2016, are excited to unveil our newest endeavor tailored for parents: the Lightly Loved Auction.
 

Imagine a place where you can send off your gently used baby, kid, and maternity items, not just to find a new home but to start new stories. Where every unsold piece is a donation in waiting, ready to bring joy to another family.

Exciting News: We have officially launched!

Here is what we are about:

  • No Hassle Selling: We photograph, we list, we sell. You get the check. It's that simple.

  • Community: A circle of parents who get it, offering up what we no longer need & finding what we do.

  • Heart and Simplicity: We know your time is precious. We've created a process that respects that – no haggling, no guesswork.

Our weekly auctions are a ritual for our community of over 15,000 bidders. And now, we're channeling this energy into Lightly Loved Auctions, where our children's past favorites become part of another child's future joys.

So, if you're ready to declutter without the stress, to pass on the love without the hassle, and to discover the next treasures for your little ones – you're home.

With warmth and a shared understanding,

Kristine Gregory
Co-Owner of LL Auctions &
Parent Just Like You

Smart Shopping

Enjoy the thrill of bidding in a user-friendly environment, where you can score great deals on the items your family needs.

What is your Opinion?

Historically, our LL Auction begins to close at 7pm every Wednesday Evening. There is 30 seconds between each item, so the last item typically closes around 10 pm.

 

As a mom myself, I get that isn’t ideal for our Lightly Loved Auction

 

We are considering 10 am to start the close of the auction, which will put the last time selling around 1pm.

Perks of Being Hands-on

Have the time to list the items yourself, but want to tap into our extensive pool of ready-to-buy bidders?

Then you are in for a treat!

 

Hands-On = Discounts!

 

Our Lightly Loved Consignors can unlock discounts for the following:

-Drop off or ship your items to us-

-Photographing your own items-

-Describing your own items-

-Separating items by size-

 

Your consigning experience is completely customizable.

Plus we have detailed guides for each customizable option!

New Territory

This customizable experience is new territory for us.

 

Our consignors are used to getting their items to us and we handled the rest. But because we value and respond to feedback, we have introduced hand-on options that offer discounts, empowering consignors to optimize their returns as they see fit.

Therefore,

It's important to note that the option to describe and photograph your own items is a new process for us. As we navigate this together, please be aware that there may be some adjustments needed along the way.

Additional Transparency

At LL Auctions, transparency isn't just a buzzword—

It's a commitment.

 

We strive to uphold this value by providing you with an itemized and detailed Consignor Report for every sale. This report meticulously outlines what items sold for, along with the corresponding amounts and how they were described.

 

***We send this report directly to your email, so it's crucial to ensure we have the correct email on file for you. Remember to check your spam folder to ensure you don't miss out on this valuable insight into your sales journey.

What is my Commission Rate?

The most popular question we receive
 
We have created a fun and quick quiz you can take that enables you to tailor your Consigning Experience, followed by the Commission rate!

Feel free to retake the quiz to tweak your customization and observe its impact on your commission rate.
