HELPFUL HINTS FOR PRICING!

THE TAGGING PROCESS

Two easy steps -- 1) Prepare your items     2) Tag your items 

 

Prepare Your Items!

 

QUALITY CONTROL: We will be screening items very closely at drop-off to maintain the quality of the sale. Please use good judgement -- remember what you would want to buy when deciding what to bring to the sale.

 

APPEARANCE IS EVERYTHING:  Please make sure there are no rips, stains, tears, holes etc.  Items will sell better when laundered and ironed. 

 

TIP:  When checking for stains it is best to use fluorescent lighting.

Tip:  Try rubbing liquid dishwashing detergent directly to remove tough stains!

 

CLOTHING:  Please check our ITEMS ACCEPTED page as a reminder for what we are accepting this sale.

 

  • Place clothing on a wire or plastic hanger with the hanger hook facing left so that it looks like a question mark (?).

  • No children's hangers please.

  • Pants should be safety pinned to the top part of the hanger.

  • Two piece outfits should have the bottom half attached to the back of the item pinned on at the shoulders. (so that both pieces can be viewed without unpinning the garment.)

  • OR hang second item on another hanger and attach together at top with elastic band. Never hide the second half under the first.

  • Matching accessories should be pinned to the front of the garment.

  • Do not put items together to create an outfit unless they where originally purchased as a two or more piece outfit

  • Place shoes in a Ziploc bag with tag fastened to the outside using clear packing tape or tie shoe laces together and pin tag to laces.

Please check our ITEMS ACCEPTED page as a reminder of what to bring this sale.

  • Toys & games etc. MUST HAVE ALL PIECES, be clean, not-out-of date and be in working condition with working batteries. 

  • Attach small pieces by putting them in a Ziploc bag and taping bag shut and securely tape bag to larger item. 

  • No one wants to buy a toy if they can not test it first.

  • Tape the tag with clear packing tape to toys, books, DVD's, furniture, baby equipment and other items that can not be pinned. Make sure the tag is easily seen and securely attached and that the BARCODE is not covered by tape.
