HOW TO HANG AND PACKAGE ITEMS FOR SALE

  • All clothing must be on a appropriate size plastic hanger. The hook is positioned like a question mark (?) when you are looking at the front of the garment.
  • Small items such as bibs, onesies, etc. should be placed in Ziploc bags. (Hint: large quantities of these items in a bag sell well).
  • Blankets and bedding should be hung on a hanger and pinned so that they will not fall off the hanger. You may also wish to cover large blankets or bedding sets with a clear plastic garment bag and tie at the bottom to prevent any pieces from falling on the floor during the sale.
  • Items such as small toys, cassette tapes, game pieces, puzzle pieces and small books should go in bags.
  • Clothing is priced individually unless being sold as a matching set or complete outfit.
  • Attach clean shoes with zip ties and attach the tag to the zip tie or tape the top of the tag to the bottom of the shoe. If shoes cannot be secured with a zip tie, they be placed in a Ziploc bag.

 

HOW TO LABEL ITEMS FOR SALE

  • Items are labeled with white 65 lb cardstock (print in black only and draft setting).
  • If pinning your tags, tags are placed at the top right (shoulder) as you looking at the front of the garment.
  • If using a tagging gun, attach to a visible label or inside seam of the right side of garment (so that the tagging gun does not damage the garment)
  • Tags are to be generated in My Consignment Manager (MyCM) and the price cannot be changed once the tag is printed.
  • If the tag must be taped to toys or bagged items, tape only the top portion above the website line to the item.
  • You will be penalized if your tags cannot be cut due to improper taping/tagging
  • Please make sure your items are tagged prior to entering the gym. There will be no tagging allowed on the sales floor. If you are using an old tag (any sale prior to Fall 2011) please mark through donate and discount section on the tag with a Sharpie.
  • You do not need to re-tag.
  • Please place clothing on hangers and tag as shown. If you have one, use a tagging gun to place tags in seams or label to prevent damage

MODERATION

  • Moderation will begin a few weeks before the sale. We will not permit the solicitation to purchase or sell items that may be sold at the consignment sale. The solicitation or selling of seasonal items sold during the Spring sale will be permitted.
  • Here is a tip regarding re-selling: If an item doesn't sell the first time, adjust the price a little and try again.  If after two sales it doesn't sell, donate it to Goodwill.  Keep your receipt and submit it for your tax return!
  • Lastly--if you have a question about a specific item's price, call a selling veteran!  We are all here to help.
