Consignors tag and price all of their own items!
Here is what you will need to prepare your items:
- Safety Pins
- Masking/Packing Tape
- Ziploc Bags
To tag your items, we use an easy automated online tagging system.
- Once you are a registered consignor, you can log back into the system with the red Consignor Login icon at the top right of the webpage to create printable barcoded tags for your items by starting in the Consignor Inventory/Active Inventory section.
- The system will ask you to input: gender, size, a short description, price, if you want to discount the item for the 50% off sale, and if you would like to donate the item.
- You are able to go in and out of the system using the red Consignor Login icon at the top of the page to tag a little at a time if you wish. Just save all entered items prior to logging out.
- When you return to the system, you can add more items or revise the created tags. The tagging system will close at 11:00pm on Monday, September 10th, 2018. All tags must be entered by then.
- It is best to log all of the tags before printing them. You may print tags up until your Drop Off on Thursday, September 13th, 2018.
- This system allows you to track and view your items sold throughout the sales event! Exciting…
Tags should be printed on cardstock. Cardstock can be purchased at discount stores such as Walmart/Target for less than three dollars. After printing tags, no other marks should appear on the tag.
The minimum price is $2.00 with $1.00 increments, no cents. If you feel an item is worth less than $2.00, then pair it with another item or two. See our Pricing Suggestion lists for more details. These lists are a guide for you to use, however, the price is entirely up to YOU!
During the last day of the sale, we will be having a 50% off sale. Please consider discounting your items for this sale. You may designate yes/no in the sales system for this option. We would love for you to sell as many items as possible!
The better the clothes look, the better they sell. Please be sure that your clothes are current, clean, and on hangers. They must be free of stains, damages, and signs of wear.
All clothing should be placed on hangers with the hook facing left like a question mark “?”. Wire hangers work best, especially for bottoms only and sets, but all hangers are acceptable. Child sized plastic coated wire hangers can be purchased at discount stores i.e. Walmart—12 for $1 or other discount/dollar stores. Please attach the tag with a safety pin near the upper right side of the garment.
When hanging an outfit that includes pants or skirt, hang the pants or skirt with the shirt so that they can both be easily seen. Hang the shirt and then turn the shirt around so that you are facing the back of the shirt, then safety pin the top of the pants to the shoulders of the shirt. Grasp the lines of the hanger in the safety pin as well so the pants do not pull down the shirt.
Do not use Ziploc bags for small clothing, such as onesies. Shoppers will not want to buy clothing that they cannot see. All clothing items must be on hangers. Consider grouping 2-3 onesies together on hangers. When grouping items together, they must all be the same size.
If a shirt has a wide neck and doesn’t stay on the hanger, safety pin the shirt onto the hanger near the shoulders or neck to ensure that the shirt stays on.
*NOTE: Please categorize Infant Clothing only under the Infant Clothing Categories. Any Infant Clothing items not categorized under these categories will not be accepted at the sale.
Ziploc bags work best for shoes. Place the tag inside the bag, then pin the safety pin through one side of the bag, including the tag. If shoes won’t fit in a Ziploc bag, tie or pin laces together, or use zip ties or rubber bands. Pin the tag securely to shoes.
Tagging Toys, Books, Videos, Decor Items
Please make certain that all pieces of an item are securely fastened together and that your item is complete. You may use packaging tape, Ziploc bags/ties, clear plastic containers, etc. Attach the tag securely. When using tape, please do not tape over the bar codes on the tags.
If the item requires batteries, they should be included and in working condition.
Books, videos, and small items can be placed in Ziploc bags. The bag’s contents should be thoroughly described on the tag.
It is best to bring your bedding in a clear bedding bag, like the bedding bag it was purchased in. This allows shoppers to easily see the bedding without needing to take it out. It also keeps smaller items like pillowcases and bed skirts with the bedding.
If you do not have a bedding bag, an alternative that we highly recommend are the extra large or the double extra large sized Ziploc bags. They generally come 3-4 to a box and can also be purchased at discount stores.
Neat stacks of bedding can also be bundled together with yarn or ribbons tied in both directions. Safety pins and smaller clear bags work well too. Make sure the tag lists all items that are included.
Tagging Large Items
On large items simply tape the tag to the item for easy viewing. Please do not tape over the bar code on the tag.
If the item includes extra parts please make note of them in the item’s description and attach them securely.
IMPORTANT: Place masking tape with your consignor number and price on the bottom or underneath side of each large item in addition to the tag. This helps identify your item in case the tag is lost. Please DO NOT duplicate printed tags on an item.
