You Bring In, I Buy Out(right): The Selling Policy
Update as of Dec 25, 2023: Not currently accepting any intakes through Jan 10, 2024. In the process of thoroughly inventorying all on-hand items and, well, it's quite a feat to say the least. The Rochester community's generosity since October to #payitforward has been AMAZING!!
As fun as it was to accentuate your growing belly for months, the thought of comfortably touching your toes again and not wearing stretchy pants (let’s be honest, leggings are life but perhaps without a full panel) is highly appealing, right?! Once you’ve decided to purge your closet of maternity and nursing wear, I’m here to help get those super cute items into the hands of another expecting mama AND some money back into your hands. Rosy Glow Maternity LLC operates on a buy outright model (aka resale), which means I may purchase items from you, the seller, at the time they’re brought into the shop.
Bring your items in a reusable bag, and I will look through them either while you wait or within two (2) business days, depending on both the number of items and store volume. I equally prioritize maternity/nursing labeled and non-labeled items (anything bump-friendly such as stretchy pencil skirts, cardigans, longer bodycon styles, graphic tees/hoodies, joggers, lounge wear, etc.). Kindly ensure all pieces are clean and free of excessive pet hair, lasting odors, or known defects. An offer* will then be extended on the items I’d like to take in; any remaining items will be repurposed, added to the free rack out front of the shop, or donated on your behalf.
*An offer will have three (3) options for payout as explained below. Your choice, Mama. (Updated as of February 2023.)
1. A cash offer equates to 13% of the resale price and includes a 15% wear coupon + 10% Mama Merch coupon. Accepted cash offers exceeding $50.00 may be done via Venmo.
2. A hybrid offer equates to 20% of the resale price and includes a 10% Mama Merch coupon. Hybrid offers are 50% cash + 50% Glow Credit.
3. A Glow Credit offer equates to 25% of the resale price. A personalized checkout code will be made upon request.
Coupons & Glow Credit are digital, don't expire, are transferable to family/friends, and will remain on your customer profile until used. Wear coupons can be used on anything that can be worn. Mama Merch coupons can be used on any and all products within the Mama Merch Collection (i.e. the unique, giftable items made by local, small biz owners).
Not local to Webster, NY, but still interested in supporting my small business? Always happy to chat about using technology to make the selling process possible.

Babywearing Try-on Experience - Now available!
Currently have over ten options including three ring sling brands, four wrap brands, and several hybrid/soft-side carriers!
Shopping online for the perfect (fitting & style) babywearing carrier can be overwhelming to say the least. Like, how are you supposed to put blind trust into a product description & total strangers' reviews of a device designed to cradle your baby against you (think a kangaroo-style pouch) but still give you total freedom of movement, comfort & peace of mind? Personally, I'd much rather touch, feel & try on a few options before committing to purchase...anyone else of a similar mindset?
Still accepting babywearing carrier donations to offer an even bigger array of styles + brands to try. Accepting any and all styles such as ring slings, wraps, hybrid carriers, and structured carriers. Minor blemishes are ok (as the samples will not be sold) but it must be fully functional with the brand/model visible. Still have the packaging/instructions? Bring those in too, please!
*Are you or someone you know certified/specialist in various babywearing options? I'd love to chat with you! Please reach out on social, by email, or pop into the shop during business hours.
