Selling at the Sale
Who Can Become a Vendor
Families with current Manitoba Families of Multiples memberships are permitted to sell items in the MBFOM sales. To assist in ensuring there is room for all members to participate as vendors in the Sales and to respect the privilege of MBFOM membership status, please refrain from selling items on behalf of others at the sale.

All items are to be in gently used condition and should be in season (snow suits in the fall sale, sandals in the spring sale). If you have out of season items you wish to sell before the next sale you can post those on our Facebook page after the sale or before the selling blackout period.

Items that are deemed soiled, torn, or heavily used will be removed from the sale floor and returned to the vendor. Ensure that games, equipment, etc. have all pieces included, and check that they are in good working order. No carnival stuffed toys are to be sold; all stuffed toys must have tags.
Sale items must be:
- Working condition or otherwise stated

Items that do not adhere to these standards are removed from the sale floor. We will be tracking these. If more than four of a seller’s items have to be removed from the sale because they do adhere to these standards, the MBFOM executive may suspend this member family from selling in the next sale.
Large heavy items such as cribs, mattresses, dressers, changing tables will not be allowed on the sales floor. You are welcome to advertise your items on our Facebook page, newsletter or make a sign to post on the wall at the sale.
