Consignors prepare and price items for consignment. Preparing your merchandise for the sale is easy. It just takes a little time and attention to detail to make sure you sell the most items for the best price possible. Once you have all of your supplies & get started, preparation moves quickly.
If you would like to donate items to our sale, you do not have to tag the items. Just contact the sale coordinator to set up an early drop off time. Since we are a charity, you will receive a tax receipt and you will be able to write-off the fair market value of your items.
All clothing (sizes newborn to young teen or maternity) must be clean and in good condition, without large stains, tears, or missing buttons. All clothes must be placed on hangers to be put on racks for display, with the exception of shoes, socks, and accessories. Consignors must provide their own hangers. Slacks and jeans should be attached to hangers using safety pins only (absolutely no straight pins). Please put the safety pins on the slanted part of the hanger (the part that forms the triangle so that pants hang down without sliding around). For both shirts & pants, if you are looking at the hanger, the hanger opening should be facing to the left like a question mark.
Tags should be placed on the left shoulder or side (looking at the garment, the tag will be on the right) so that they are easy to see. Be very carefully where the tagging gun or safety pin attaches the tag to the item. It is best if you use a hidden seam to attach the tag. Use your best judgment, the tag needs to be seen, but should not cause holes in the clothing.
Layette items (such as blankets) are displayed on tables. Socks and small accessories should be placed in clean plastic zipper bags to be displayed on a table. Place the tag inside the bag so that it can be read easily.
Toys, play equipment, and baby equipment should be wiped down so that they are clean. Please make sure that toys and games have all their pieces, or if not, indicate the missing pieces on the tag and price the item appropriately. Small pieces that are not contained in the toy or its box should be put in plastic zipper bags and attached to toy with tape or rubber bands.
Fabrics on car seats, strollers, and exersaucers should be washed and stains removed as much as possible. All items are subject to inspection by volunteers. Items that do not meet these standards may be pulled from the floor and not put up for sale.
Please remember to only sell items that you would purchase yourself!
We require all items be entered into our tagging system which assigns a barcode to each item. Barcoding is free to use and easy. Just log into the consignor tagging system and enter in your tag information. Then print out your tags and they will be formatted correctly. We require all items be entered into our tagging system.
With our barcoding system you can:
Please be sure your printer is set for normal print quality and check your barcodes to be sure they are clear before printing all tags. Non -clear barcodes will not scan and will slow down the checkout process.
