Why Consign My Items? back

Consigning – consigning an item with us means that we will sell your items at a price that you determine and in exchange, we receive a low percentage of the total sale price after your item has been sold and paid for

Clutter Free House - Our seasonal consignment sale is the easiest way to sell your children's items and a great way to make more money than you would at a garage sale, by placing an ad in the local paper, auctioning on eBay or posting an ad on Craig's List





 

What Can/Can't I Sell? back

Quality - We know that you are strict about the quality of the items that you bring home to your family – so are we. For this reason, we only accept clean, unbroken, non-recalled items for our sale. Please do not be offended if we decline an item, we are trying to protect our buyers and sellers alike.

We will accept year round clothing, toys and books. We do not restrict your items because of the season, but if we have too much summmer items, we will place in the back until more current clothes sell.

For a complete list of recalled items please see the CPSC links on our site

Registration Fee - There is a $16.50 NON-REFUNDABLE registration fee to sell your items at our event. We use this fee to cover the cost of a convenient location, make sure that the sale is well advertised, insured and that your treasures are displayed properly – all you have to do is consign your items and make some cash!

Our Guarantee - We will return the difference of what sold and your registration fee, if you do not sell a minimum of $16.50 and bring in at least 25 items.

How Do I Prepare Items? back

Once you have a Consignor number, you may start entering your items into our sales manager system.

Click here for complete instructions – but here is an overview:

Wash and hang clothing on wire hangers (top of hanger faces to the left – top looks like a question mark)

Sort items by size and gender for easy tracking and merchandising at sale. PLEASE also sort your DONATED ITEMS. This will save a lot of time at the end of the sale. We are going to try to TAG your donated items upon arrival with a piece of White Colored Tape that will be placed on the hangers.

Replace batteries in toys, make sure everything works and all pieces are accounted for

Label each item (for example, if your pack and play has three pieces, put your consignor number, price and "1 of 3 items" or "2 of 3 items" on each piece

Secure your items! Very Important!!!! Kids will touch toys. Please tape them closed or place it taped sealed baggies.

Use Ziploc type bags – and staple or use heavy tape to secure
Items can get lost very easily – make sure each item can't get separated. We are not liable for missing or broken items if items were not securely packaged.

Set your prices (Remember customers are looking for a great deal - Check Amazon, Ebay and make sure they are lower)

Pricing guidelines

Print your tags on 65 lb or heavier paper for items using your tagging gun. Using regular paper on toys, bags, books, etc. are ok. But for hanging items, tags may fall off or tear so please use the heavier one. If you wish to use colored paper, PLEASE DO NOT USE DARK COLORS. THE SCANNER DOESN'T READ THEM. LIGHT YELLOW, LIGHT BEIGE, WHITE, WORK BEST. Available Here

Purchase a tagging gun with fasteners

 

What is VIP? back

In our busy lives, many sellers have a ton of items, but just can't deal with entering them all in. Well, let us do it for you! You will make less, but at least you are helping the community, cleaning out your house, and still making some extra money! Consignors who sign up for VIP Service will receive 35-45% of their merchandise that sells. 35% - bring your items to the store. 40% - at least 50 items are on hangers and stain free. 45% if all clothes are on hangers.(min. 50 items of clothing) stain free, and volunteer 3 hours

 

How Do I Tag Items? back

Using the tagging gun – The tagging gun is surprisingly easy – just insert the needle edge of the tagging gun through a clothing item's tag or through a seam. Take care not to make holes in your clothing items – this will ruin your clothes.

Click images below to see examples of how to tag your items

 

Tagging non-clothing items – You can use heavy tape, twist ties or string to secure your items – just make sure that the tags don't come off your itesm. IMPORTANT - the barcode NEEDS TO BE COMPLETELY VISIBLE for SCANNING when your items sell.

Use clear packing tape to attach sale tag to flat surface of items.

Can't find a flat surface or the tape is not sticking? Find a location to loop tape around part of the item.

Remember to properly label each item of a set for sale (i.e. 1 of 3, 2 of 3, 3 of 3).

Dropping Items Off back

Sort - Separate your items by gender and by size

Inspection - Your items will be reviewed to ensure that items are in good condition and are sellable – any unsellable items will be returned to you

Merchandise - You may take your items to the racks to ensure that they are merchandised properly (many of our consignors like to take a look to see what's being sold so that they know what to buy when they come back!!!), or our volunteers can place your items on the sales floor for you.
