Please read prior to preparing your items. We will not accept or sell items that are not properly prepared or tagged.   New to consigning?  See our "How to Consign" guide for step by step instructions on registering, entering items, printing tags, preparing items and helpful tips.   For the safety of all shoppers and their little ones, please check recall lists prior to bringing your items to the sale. 

MATERIALS YOU WILL NEED:

  • Wire Hangers
  • Safety Pins
  • Ziploc Bags
  • Clear Packing Tape
  • Access to a computer and printer
  • WHITE Cardstock

HANGING ITEMS:

  • Place clothing on hangers with the hook turned left (see diagram below)
  • Pants, shorts & skirts should be secured on hangers using safety pins
  • (No straight pins or tape!)
  • If it comes off the hanger, add more safety pins! Items do not sell if they have fallen under the racks or if they lose their tag. 
  • 2 piece outfits: first, put the shirt on the hanger and pin the bottoms to the shirt at the shoulders. INCLUDE the hanger in the pin so the weight of the bottoms do not pull down on the shirt.
  • Make sure clothing is clean and ironed if necessary.

*Helpful tips- Hang up your clothing items and sort them by size / gender first. Then enter them into the system. The drop down lists for category and size will remain with your last entry until they are changed. So, for example, you can go through and enter all your girls size 4T clothing without having to change the category or size between each item. The tags will also print in the order entered so you can then print the tags and go backwards through the pile you just entered to put the tags on.

PRICING ITEMS: 

  • The minimum price is $1.00 and can be increased in $1.00 dollar increments.
  • Check the “discount” box when entering your items to have the item go to the 1/2 price sale. 
  • Hand written tags will not be accepted. 

TAGGING ITEMS:

  • Use ONLY white cardstock to print your tags.
  • Use a safety pin to attach the tag on the upper right side of the garment (as you are looking at the item)
  • Make sure your tags are secure. Placing a piece of packaging tape over the safety pin works great. Please understand we can’t sell an item if it has lost the tag.

PREPARING SHOES:

  • Shoes must be very clean!
  • Shoes must be appropriate to the season (No winter boots in spring, no sandals in fall)
  • For larger size shoes: Tie laces together and place a safety pin thru them to secure tightly. On shoes without laces use zip ties or string keep them together. Do not tape shoes together.
  • If you have the original shoe box and wish to include it, make sure the tag is on the shoes NOT the box as they can easily become separated.

PREPARING TOYS, PUZZLES, BOOKS, & BABY GEAR:

  • Use clear packaging tape to attach the tag to the item.
  • Make sure the item is super clean and if it is battery operated, that it has working batteries.
  • Toys having loose pieces should be placed in a zip-loc bag then attached to the item as securely as possible. 
  • Books can be bundled and placed in large ziploc baggies with the top taped shut. (limit 12 books per consigner)
  • Board puzzles can be put together and secured with a couple layers of saran wrap and packaging tape. Please tape boxed puzzles shut.
