Supplies

Wire Hangers

Hang all garments on wire hangers with hanger hook pointing left.

Cardstock

Please use white cardstock paper.  When tagging toys, baby equipment, books or any item where the tags will be attached using clear packing tape you can use regular paper.

Tagging Gun or Safety Pins

There are three ways to attach your tags. Safety pin tags, use a tagging gun or tape your tag to the hanger.  When using pins or taping your tag please place tag on right side of garment. If you are using a tagging gun make sure you place the needle in the seam of the item or the items label to avoid making a hole.

Tagging Info

Two Piece Outfits

Secure two-piece outfits together by placing the shirt on the hanger first. Place the pants or skirt on the back of the hanger (the two garments will be back-to-back). Pin the waist of the pants to the back of the shirt at the shoulder seams. Pin through the hanger to prevent tearing. Please use safety pins to attach pieces to the hanger. Do not pin (pants or skirts) under a jacket or shirt where they cannot be seen.

Clothing Condition

All clothing must be in EXCELLENT CONDITION (no holes, stains, tears or missing buttons), neat, clean and free of odors. Clothing must be current styles.  We will be very selective of the items we accept. Our goal is to provide all shoppers with great quality items. Please look through your items very carefully at home.

Item Descriptions **IMPORTANT**

Please take the time to fill out an item description for each item. If a tag becomes separated from your item we can search for it in the inventory.  Make finding lost tags simple by being clear in your descriptions.

Attach a small label or piece of masking tape with your seller number to each item on the item label. If your tag becomes separated from the item we will be able to do a search in your inventory list and print a new tag.

First line: please put the brand name.
Second line: describe the item by the first thing that comes to mind when you look at it.

Shoes

When preparing shoes, please make sure they are securely connected and the tag is attached. You can tie the shoelaces together, buckle the shoes together,use a loop pin, zip tie or even safety pin them together. If the item looks good it sells faster and for a better price. Make sure shoes are clean! A little effort goes a long way. Shoes often become separated from their tags, attach a small label or piece of masking tape with your seller number to each shoe. There is a limit of 4 pairs per gender unless like new. If like new we will accept more.

Books & DVDs

Label books & DVDs by placing tag on the back and adhering with clear tape. Please do not use too much tape, especially on books. We accept any family dvd rated PG13 and under. If you plan to tape your DVD’s shut please do so after your items have been inspected at drop off.

**WE DO NOT ACCEPT VHS!**

Toys, Games & Puzzles

PACKAGE TOY/GAME/PUZZLE PIECES AND DIRECTIONS SECURELY. Small and loose pieces should be placed in a Ziploc bag and taped shut. Please use packing tape and tape the entire opening of the bag! Think CHILDPROOF! Attach bag to the toy by tying it on, using a loop pin, using clear packing tape or by placing the bag inside the unsealed toy. All toys must be complete, in working order and clean. Puzzles can be wrapped in plastic wrap and then taped to keep puzzle pieces in. Count your puzzle pieces!! Do not package toys to purposely hide a defect.

***PLEASE BE CONSIDERATE! CHECK PARTS! DO NOT BRING ITEMS IF THEY HAVE MISSING PARTS!***

Barcodes

Tags are made using our online tagging system. It is required that each item have one of our barcoded tags in order to be sold. Using bar codes allows us to track each consignor’s inventory and earnings.

1/2 Price Day

If this is your first time consigning say YES to 1/2 price! Once your items are out of your house you won’t want them back!  While people are shopping they always have a “maybe” pile that they would buy if only the items were a little cheaper and they’ll be back on 1/2 price day!   Save “NO discount” for special items that you’re having a hard time parting with.
