A Seasonal Consignment Event

TAGGING INFORMATION

Wire hangers are required.

Merchandise Preparation Tips:

All tags must be printed on white card stock.  This allows the bar code to be scanned.
Clothing in bags will not be accepted.
Tags print best with Internet Explorer.  Make sure that bar codes don't appear to be faded or squished together.  This will ensure your tags scan properly.  Tags that do not scan will not be accepted.
Hang clothes on the hanger with the hook on the hanger pointing to the left (like a question mark).

Safety pins

  2. Hang all the shirts on the hangers with the hook of the hanger facing the left (like a question mark).
  3. If the shirt has the slightest potential of slipping off, fasten the shirt to the hanger with one safety pin on each side.
  4. Pin all the pants to the hangers with two safety pins, one on each side.
  5. For sets, hang and/or pin the shirt first then turn it around and pin the pants to the back of the hanger.
  6. Once you have all items hung, you can start printing tags and attaching them to the clothes with a safety pin. Only pin the top part of the tag to the items, the bottom part is for our use at check out.

Some selling tips:

  • Price it to sell. Overpriced items will not sell. 
  • When in doubt leave it out.  Please leave out clothes with stains, holes and any sign of wear and tear.
  • We highly suggest marking your items to reduce 50% for Saturday.  Trust us, small pick-up piles are liberating!
  • All items must be priced $2 or more.

  • A little bit of extra work goes a long way to sell those items (ironing, stain stick, dusting/cleaning toys, etc).
  • Pick clothes within the season: Warm clothes for our fall sale and lighter clothes for our spring sale. Out of season items will not be accepted.
  • Have fun! Don't sweat the small stuff!  Enjoy your trip down memory lane!  Email us with questions!  Did we mention have fun!?!
