Pricing

You set your own price on all items, following the $3 rule. Price to sell!

*you can use our pricing guide link below

Generally items sell for 1/3 of the original price, depending on name brand and condition. Better brand names, unique items, or high price items usually bring more $.
Please use $.25 price increments only (i.e.; $6.00, $6.25, $6.50 rather than $6.99). An average price for shirts is $3-$7 and an average price for shorts/pants is $4-$8.You set your own price on all items. Our best advice is to price your items 1/2 to 1/4 of the original retail price.  See our pricing guide below for more information.

*$3 rule: clothing items must be priced for a minimum of $3.  If one item would not meet this amount, pair it with something else so that it can be tagged for at least $3.  (ie: a T-shirt can be paired with another shirt in the same size OR with pants/shorts)

Clothing

Hanging Instructions:  To prevent items from falling off the hangers, please use appropriate sized hangers (or extra safety pins to attach the clothing to the hanger), child size hangers for the infant sized clothing and adult size hangers for toddler size up.  If it slips off the hanger please reinforce it!  Small zip ties are great for holding items on the hanger.

* All garments should be hung with the hanger hook pointing left (hanger should resemble a question mark when looking at the front of item).

* Safety pin clothing sets securely with pants hung on the backside of the shirt so both pieces can be viewed without unpinning them.

* Safety pin through BOTH pieces AND through the hanger (this will prevent pants from weighing down the shirt and causing a possible tear).

* Please safety pin pants to the top part of the hanger so the garment will not slide (zip ties also work great).

* We accept any type of hanger (wire or plastic are fine!)

 

Toys

• Must be clean & in working order

• Batteries included (you can get batteries very inexpensively at the Dollar Store)

• Small parts should be bagged and taped to the main part very securely. Use HEAVY packing tape. If parts get separated, it will not sell.

• Games and puzzles should have all pieces and be taped closed.

• Several small items can be grouped together in Ziploc bags (books, rattles, grab bags for small toys).

• We will ONLY accept stuffed animals that are LIKE NEW! No other stuffed animals will be accepted.

• Again, you MUST secure Ziploc bags with packing tape so that pieces do not get lost!

Maternity Items

MATERNITY ITEMS:

• Must be in excellent condition.  Maternity clothing must be the appropriate season for the sale. Please do not bring out-dated maternity clothes. They will not sell.

• Please secure the tops with safety pins if they have a tendency to fall off the hanger.

• Breastfeeding tops are accepted with maternity clothing.

• Other Maternity Items: belly bands, pregnancy books, etc. sell very well.  We NO LONGER accept breast pumps.

Infant Equipment

• Infant equipment includes: Car seats, strollers, high chairs, swings, exersaucers, bouncy seats, boppies, play gyms, pack and plays and bassinets.

• Car seats cannot be older than 5 years old and must have the owner’s manual (you can print this online).

Your car seat must have been manufactured within the past five years. It must not be subject to recall or have been in an accident.  They must be in clean, like new condition.  You will complete a car seat waiver while at drop off or you can download it here.  Car seats will be closely inspected for safety reasons.

• Must be tied in pairs by shoelaces or put the shoes in a clear baggie. Laces and shoes must be in excellent condition.  Zip Ties are great to keep shoes together!

• For shoes with no laces, put them together in a Ziploc bag with the tag taped to the outside of the bag. Tape the bag closed with heavy packing tape.

Ready, Set, Tag!

Following these simple hanging tips will help your items sell better!

The hanger hook should point to the left and look like a question mark when looking at it.  We take any type of hanger: plastic or wire are both fine.

*$3 rule: clothing items must be priced for a minimum of $3.  If one item would not meet this amount, pair it with something else so that it can be tagged for at least $3.  (ie: a T-shirt can be paired with another shirt in the same size OR with pants/shorts)

Hanging pants: attach the pants with safety pins on each side and one through the middle of the waist band and to the TOP part of the hanger to ensure that pant will not slide.

Hanging sets: Most sets can be placed on one hanger. Safety pin thru both clothing pieces AND around the top of hanger (this will prevent pants from weighing down the shirt and causing a possible tear).

Remember: Clothing is sold on hangers, so hangers will not be returned to consignor. Unsold clothing will be returned on hangers.

Tag Gun: If you are interested in ordering a tag gun, you can find great deals on ebay.  Remember to be very careful when using a tag gun and tag through the size tag or inside lip in the neck area, since we will not accept clothing with holes.

Safety pins: Please use 1" or larger safety pins: NO straight pins or small gold safety pins.
