This company acts like they care about helping you resell your baby furniture on consignment at their store but beware because they will break your items, misplace parts, and blame you for it. They ruined a perfectly good piece of baby furniture that retails new for $2, 000.

One of their store employees told me to drop off the parts with instructions and they would have one another employee put the furniture together.

After I dropped off the dismantled piece of furniture, a company employee called me 2 weeks later and said that it was against the law for them to resell baby furniture with missing parts. What????

How could this be? I rechecked all the parts and pieces before dropping off the baby furniture with the store. The employ told me to come and pick up the furniture. I drove to the store to get the furniture and they showed me the two nuts that were missing after I questioned them for several minutes. There were supposed to be four nuts. I inspected the furniture and where one of the nuts was supposed to go; there was a big crack board right through the hole where a nut was supposed to go. The employee never said the furniture was cracked. They wanted me to believe that there was a missing part and that they did not bread the baby furniture by cracking the board.

I called and spoke with the owner about the matter. The owner denied that their employee lost the parts and denied that her employee broke the baby furniture. Granted, the furniture new retails for $2, 000 and I was going to accept $500 for it, but now due to the Newport Kid’s actions, the furniture was worth nothing.

I will never use this company again. The owner was very rude on the telephone to me and even said it was against store policy to accept furniture to put on consignment that was not put together. This goes completely against what we were told up front. I would have put the baby furniture together myself, if that was a requirement. If I new the store employee would have broken my $2, 000 piece of baby furniture I would never have done business with them up front. Shame on you Newport Kids!!!

    I have been a customer of Newport Kids for over 10 years. I have brought in everything from my Bellini & Custom Made Pali Cribs to strollers clothes and everything baby under the sun! I have never once in 10 years had any issue with Newport Kids. I started going to Newport Kids to sell my baby clothes and equipment and with the money I got from them we put into bank accounts for the kids. Ashley the Owner is amazing. My one son has autism so it's hard for me to come in for an appointment but Ashley always opens early or stays open late for me to come in. Recently my sister's daughter passed away and Newport Kids sent the most beautiful flower arrangment. With all the customers she has I couldn't belive that she took the time out to do that for me and my family. Every person I tell about Newport Kids has nothing but amazing things to say about them. Being a resident of Newport Coast and have the luxery of the most upscale baby items I trust Newport Kids with all of my children's high end items. Why would you want to try to reseal a crib with missing pieces to it! Shame on this couple for trying to resale something that was broken to begin with!!

    I agree. I have been a customer and consignor with newport kids and never once had any problem. The owner and her grandparents are delightful to work with. I have sent many of my mommy friends into Newport Kids and not ONCE has anyone of them had a problem. I will continue to do business with them until my kids have out grown the store. Thank you Newport Kids!!!

    They went out of business. Converted your consigned goods and sold them to another store as inventory for another store to open up and are bouncing checks all over town. It's time for Channel 5 or the District Attorney to go after Ashley Woolfson and her Mother Cynthia Rietmier. This is criminal conduct.

    The owner of this store, Ashley, has sold the store to a new owner. The new owner did NOT assume any of Ashley's debt. So, this means that if you did not get your check or inventory before the end of March 2018, you are SOL. I am in the same position. Makes me SO mad because they had lots of my expensive baby equipment and daughter's designer clothing. If anyone wants to contact me, I have a lawyer willing to work on our behalf. She charges by the hour. May be worth it if >10 of us can get together. Let me know.

    @LAW77 I didn't get a check for the expensive things I brought in, but I"m not sure it would be worth the cost of an attorney. This isn't fair; there's nothing the city of Newport can do?
