3. Great. Welcome to the Sale. Time to gather everything together. We're
looking for a minimum of 25 items to attend the Consignor Pre-Sale, but no
maximum for the amount of items you have for Sale. So, hit those closets,
check under the beds, venture into the garage, creep into the attic. You
will be more than a little surprised at how much you are going to find.
4. All items you choose to include in your inventory must meet our quality
standards: you will see this in the "What to Consign" link. If you wouldn't
buy it, don't expect anyone else to either. We inspect items at check-in.
5. Check over everything. If it needs washing do it now. Cut that dangling
string, scrub the bottoms of those shoes, put some 409 to that big wheel,
and dust the inside of that dresser. Your shoppers will look over everything
so make it shine.
6. Get your clothing on the hangers. Get them in boy/girl order. Now put
them in size order from smallest to largest.
All clothing items must be separated boy/girl and in the
correct size order. The hanger must be pointing in the correct
direction and the tag must be over the heart or shoulder of
the item as shown in the two pictures to the right. We
will not accept them during check-in if they are not
displayed according to the directions to display clothing.
7. After you have sorted out all of your clothing, begin to prepare your toys.
Clean them up and make them shine. Put them in Ziploc bags if
necessary. Presentation is everything.
All toys and any other equipment that require
batteries must be working. If a battery
operated item does not function it will be pulled
from the floor and returned. We do not have
batteries to supply or replace.
8. For books, DVDs, CDs, Video Games we suggest a small piece of tape over
the corners of the tags. When you apply the tag, put it on the backside. No
need to put these items in Ziploc bags, they will be displayed on racks.
9. As you are going through some of your larger ticket items, usually baby
equipment, outdoor toys, and furniture, please check to see if they may have
been recalled. Cribs have been in the spotlight this passed year and many
models have been recalled. Many have a quick simple fix, and can still be
sold once remedied. Please check this website to be sure that the item
you would like to sell is not on the RECALL LIST:
10. You are ready to begin tagging. Click:
* Click (The majority of your time will be spent here)
* Your single most important decision. Ask what you would pay
for it. We suggest 1/3 the original price if used. We suggest
1/2 the original price if brand new.
( Whole dollar pricing does not sell as well as dollar and cent pricing!!! )
SOLD MAYBE SOLD
Retail stores always sell something for $19.99 never $20.00.
It's psychological pricing and it's been done for years!
* Pay attention to the "Discount" and "Donate" sections.
Check the box if you want to sell your item for 50% off on the
last day of the Sale if it has not already sold.
Check the box if you would like for us to Donate your item to our charity
of the season if it does not sell. We supply Tax receipts.
Simply pick the size from the drop-down. All clothing except for Maternity
items must have a numbered size, i.e. 0-3 mos, 4T, 8 etc. Please no S,M,L,XL.
Graco, Gymboree, Peg Perego, Children's Place etc

yellow dots, or Graco carseat - Black with maroon material.
(A good description will help to find an item on the floor should a tag

|Now accepting FALL/WINTER children's items
(NOT ACCEPTING SPRING/SUMMER CLOTHING.)
1. Click the "What to Consign" link. This well help you get an idea of what you can sell
before you begin the task of gathering everything together...
2. Click the "How Much should I Charge" link. This will give you a general idea of
what what various items typically sell for and help you in pricing...
Below are items you will need to
get everything ready...
1. CARD STOCK (Printed tags)
Basically just a thicker paper
than your standard printing paper.
Purchase at OfficeMax, Staples,
or Office Depot. You need to have
60# to 67# card stock. It can be
white or pastel in color. Dark
colors will not work. For about
$11.99 you can get 250 sheets
and print up to 2,000 tags. That
will cover quite a few Sales.
Children's hangers are the best
way to hang clothing, but adult
hangers will work also. We accept
wire hangers and plastic hangers.
3. Safety Pins (1" and 1 1/2")
All tags will be secured to clothing
with either safety pins or a tagging
gun. Straight pins are not acceptable. Pin
in a seam or under a collar.
4. Tagging Gun (OPTIONAL)
Very convenient and much faster
than using safety pins. Click the tagging
gun link to purchase: When using the
gun, please insert the needle into the
seam of the sleeve/shoulder area
Try the SSW Economy
Fine Fabric Tagging Gun.
Purchase the 1" L Fine
5. Ziploc bags (Sm, Med, & Lg)
Needed for presenting smaller
items and items with pieces
6. Packing Tape/String/Zip Ties
You may have to get clever in
attaching tags to oddly-shaped
DISPLAYING YOUR ITEMS
All items must be prepared for
display in the manner(s)
1. CLOTHING (All clothing)
Shirts, onesies, dresses, pants, coats and
jackets, anything clothing must
be on hangers. All hangers must look like a
question mark (?)when viewed from the front...
PIN TAG IN A SEAM OR UNDER A COLLAR.
Items will not
2. Pants and Onesies put on hangers:
Simply safety pin
your pair of pants
or shorts to the
top of the hanger.
It makes it much
easier for your
shoppers to see
what you have
(Folding pants over the hanger will
not make it past inspection and will
be returned at check-in)
3. Clothing sets
Put the shirt on
the hanger first.
Now behind the
hanger pin the
pants. The buyer
can now view the
entire set without
taking anything off
of the hanger.
NOTICE THE TAG LOCATION ON
THE ABOVE PICTURES:
Tags must be attached in the
upper corner exactly as shown.
Get clever, here are some ideas...
Tie the laces Use a rubberband
together string or ziptie
Use a ziploc bag as
a last resort
This is where imagination comes in to
play. There is no perfect way to tag a
toy. Your goal is to find the best spot
to apply the tag so that it will stay
secured and does not cover up what
shoppers really need to see. - Try
Packing Tape, string, Zip Tie...
Small Toys, Toys with many pieces:
Definitely go with a ziploc bag. We
would encourage you to put tape across
the entire top of the bag. This will
discourage "tiny hands" from getting
inside your items and reeking havoc on
Hint: Don't cover up the front of
your ziploc with the TAG.
Place it on the back side.
6. Big items (Strollers, cribs,
bouncy seats, cribs, play
equipment, furniture etc.
Clean them all up, make them look nice,
because these are the big money
makers. Secure your tags extremely
well. Zip tie the tag if necessary. Put
a secret "second" tag somewhere on
the item. If we discover a "missing"
tag on the item sometime during the
Sale, we will look for that one to replace
it. Simply make 2 copies for one tag
if you choose to do this. $$$
7. If you can't figure out how
to display one of your items,
please don't hesitate to email
us for some advice.
