SUPPLIES NEEDED (very little!)

Video Tutorial

Tagging is easy and only a few supplies are needed. Many of these items can be found around your home, picked up at the dollar store or purchased cheaply:

  • White/cream cardstock - 65lb min. (standard paper & colored card stock will not be accepted) - Target, Big Lots, Walmart
  • Printer
  • Safety pins or tagging gun
  • Hangers (free & low cost)
  • Packing tape
  • Resealable baggies
  • Zip-ties and/or string/curling ribbon
  • Hole punch or pen
  • Scissor or paper cutter

PRICING

Video Tutorial

YOU get to set the price. Generally we suggest 1/3-1/2 of the original price depending on condition, brand and demand. Don't worry, we've taken out the guess work with a simple Quick Pricing Guide, and a more extensive (still simple) Detailed Pricing Guide doc - complete with actual brand names, categories and price suggestions.  A few helpful tips:

  • Ask yourself, "what would I pay for this item?"
  • Consider the popularity of the item. If it's a better brand name, unique, high priced item, chances are you can fetch a bit more. If it's common (like a baby bathtub or white onsies) there may be several others on the sales floor to grab the attention of the shopper.
  • All items should be priced at $3 or more. Not worth three bucks?  Pair it with the same type of item or with a complementary item to get to $3 or more.  ie: shirt/pants outfit, bag of onsies, socks, or matchbox cars.
  • Still stumped? Use the "advanced search" feature on eBay.com to check for sold auction items. This is a good indication of the price you will be able to fetch on your item. Remember, shoppers won't have to pay shipping fees on your items.

Remember, these are just guidelines, ultimately the decision on how to price your items is yours.  You got this!

If you are donating your items at the end of the sale, please do not choose for your item to remain full price!

GIRLS | BOYS | MATERNITY CLOTHES

Video Tutorial 

Gather/Prep

  • Girls:  preemie to size 16. Boys:  preemie to size 20.  Maternity: all sizes/all seasons. Juniors: not accepted
  • Clothing of current fashion (must be within 5 years), no stains, holes, tears or excessive wear. Freshly clean and (optional) press items. Replace missing buttons, sew loose hems and seams, clip loose threads, button/snap all buttons/snaps, zip all zippers.  Ask yourself, “would I buy this item in this condition?”
  • For your convenience/efficiency, sort all clothing by gender and size for tagging and drop off.


Hang/Package

  • ALL CLOTHES MUST BE ON HANGERS!  Wire and tubular hangers work best (skip the big chunky wooden ones please!). Size 5T and under, use children's hangers. Larger sizes and maternity, use adult hangers. If garments fall off hangers, we can’t sell ‘em!
  • Hangers can be found inexpensively at most discount stores such as Big Lots, Dollar Stores and sometimes free if you ask at Target, Carters, Kohl’s, Osh Kosh, etc. Check out Free & Low Cost Hangers doc. for more ideas.
  • Clothing to be hung with the hanger hook pointing left. (hanger will resemble a question mark when looking at front of item).
  • When hanging pants, attach safety pins to the TOP part of the hanger to ensure pant will not slide. Best hangers to use for pants/shorts/skirts are clip hangers like the ones used in department stores.
  • Clothing items are sold on hangers, hangers will not be returned to consignor, however, unsold clothing will be returned on hangers (as a shopper, you get to keep the hangers)!
  • Multi-piece clothing items safety pinned together through all pieces (if selling item with an accessory such as a hat or pair of socks, safety pin accessory to clothing item). Do not use a tagging gun to attach clothing items together.
  • Onsies, socks, tights, hats, infant mittens and accessores are accepted in Ziploc bags (you may group multiple like items in one bag) securely taped shut with clear packing tape. Overstuffed bags do not sell! Size 24+ month onsies and all other garments including footed pajamas must be hung on hangers. We recommend hanging decorative bodysuits/onsies regardless of size.Hung items sell best as shoppers like to touch and inspect garments (just like you do too)!
  • If hanging shirt and pant set on 1 hanger, safety pin thru both clothing pieces AND through the top of hanger (this will prevent pants from weighing down the shirt and causing tears). DO NOT safety pin pants to the bottom of the shirt OR bottom of the hanger.
  • Rubber band or tape hangers together if selling multi piece items on multiple hangers (remember to safety pin items together).

Price

  • Refer to our Quick or Detailed pricing guidelines.
  • Remember to price your items starting at $3. If item is not worth $3, make an outfit or sell multiple garments together (ie: 3 shirts).

Tag

  • Use 1" or larger safety pins or a tagging gun. NO straight pins or small gold safety pins.
  • Tag location for safety pins: Attach tag to the upper right side when you are looking at the front of the garment, preferably in a seam. If fabric is delicate, use sizing seam.
  • Tag location for gun:  Be VERY CAREFUL, it is EASY to make holes in a garment! Use a seam or sizing tag ONLY. Tagging outside of these areas causes holes (especially when tag is removed/first washed). Sizing label on shirts, skirts, etc. and belt loop on pants are OK. Improperly tagging with gun will result in items being turned away/removed from floor. Refer to simple gun directions.
  • PULL softly on tag to make sure it is properly secured and will not come off easily. Unfortunately MANY tags come off during the sale and are not sold - help us sell YOUR items!
  • If you are interested in ordering a tagging gun, you can find great deals on ebay. Dennison and Arrow are better brands (get the 2" size barbs).
  • Tags MUST be pulled out (not tucked inside clothing) so they are easily visible to shoppers.

Tips

  • Once you tag about five items, you will be sailing away - tagging is RIDICULOUSLY EASY!
  • Sets sell well in smaller sizes, so match things up if you can. Make sure that the sizes are the same (brands can be different).
  • As kids reach the pre-teen sizes (14-16), they are very particular. Clothing must be in excellent condition and very CURRENT style.

  • For multi piece items, include how many items on tag.
  • For bedding/blankets bundled with string, attach tag directly to blanket and tuck under ribbon/string so it does not easily get pulled off when shifted at sale.Print copy of bedding/set set up and tape to bag (optional – helps shoppers).

Price

  • Refer to our Quick or Detailed pricing guidelines.  Make your price irresistible!  We know you paid $250+ for your crib set, however, shoppers are less likely to purchase these items used, so prices have to be LOW. Try 75% - 90% off retail.

Take the time to count your puzzle pieces (# reflected on outside of box), be sure all game pieces/cards/etc. are included, etc.  Shoppers who purchase items missing pieces do contact your friendly Organizer, Jen to let her know.  Let's skip having Jen call you!  :)
