How do I tag my items the correct way?

***WE DO allow you to use tags you may have printed from previous sales. This is OK!!
Tags must be printed on white cardstock only! Absolutely NO regular paper tags.
Click on the “Print Tags” link on the Consignors menu of this website.
Enter your Consignor number in the blank provided.
Enter the price (whole dollar increments only!) A PRICE MUST BE ENTERED ON THE COMPUTER! If price is entered by hand, when someone goes to pay for your item, it will ring up as $0.00.
Select your Discount option
“Yes” means you want the item discounted 50% on Saturday, the Sale Discount Day.
“No” means you DO NOT want the item discounted 50% on Saturday, the Sale Discount Day.
Select your Donate option
“Yes” means you want the item to be donated to charity if unsold.
“No” means you DO NOT want the item to be donated to charity if unsold. You must pick your unsold, non-donated items during our designated pick up time or they will be sent to charity anyway.
Click “Submit”
A sheet of 6 identical tags in PDF format will pop up on your screen, along with your computer’s print box. Select the correct printer and select “Print”.
If you want to print another sheet identical to that which you just printed, select the button “Print Another Copy”.
Once your tags are printed, cut each sheet into separate tags.
Label each tag with the item’s size (if appropriate) and description.
If you want to print tags with different pricing or discount information, select the button “Enter More Barcodes.” You will return to the screen, where you must enter your consignor number and other information again.
IMPORTANT: If your tag does not say “No Discount” in the lower right-hand corner of the tag, then your item WILL be discounted 50% on Saturday!
IMPORTANT 2: If you are choosing to donate unsold items at the end of the sale, you will need to
Handwrite “D” or Donate in the top right corner of the tag.
Please do not write “Do Not Donate” on the tag. This may result in your item mistakenly being added to the donate pile!

Pinning your items : Pin tags with SAFETY PINS ONLY to the front left shoulder of the shirt (diagram below). Please use the largest safety pin you can find (the smallest especially the gold ones do not stay on well). We have safety pins available for sale. All clothes, blankets, and sheet sets should be hung on metal hangers with hook turned away from the tag. Metal hanger should look like a question mark. Pin clothing sets together with safety pins and use only one tag. Attach tags to boxes and Ziploc bags with packing tape, place tag outside of Ziploc bag with closure taped shut.

Labeling your items: When sizing clothing use numbers (2T,4T,6 etc) only. No S, M, L, etc. Label if pants are a slim (example size 6S). All areas of the tag must be completed as directed. Give a description, color, design, brand, shirt, etc. Items must be priced at $1 or above and be in dollar increments. Smaller items may be sold together. Bag items together and/or pin sets together.

Presort: Please sort your items by size and gender. If more than 2 items please group together.

Shirts: Hang shirts on the hanger with the top of the hanger pointed to the left (an easy way to remember which direction is that it will be in the same direction as a question mark ? ) If the shirt has a large neck and might slip off, it is best to attach safety pins at the top of the hanger (as in the third picture of the diagram). It is recommended to do this for all shirts over size 10 and ALL maternity clothing.

Pants: All pants, especially maternity and larger sizes should be hung on the top of the hanger. This is done so that the pants do not gather and hang from one end of the hanger. If the pants are larger place the safety pin closer to the middle to ensure they will not slip to the bottom of the hanger.

Sets: Sets tend to sell better. To hang sets make sure that both the tops and bottoms show (third picture). Make sure to have the front of the bottoms show if they have a design on it or if it has knees – so that the buyer can see the wear on them.
If the outfit has a tie, hair bow or socks that you would like to sell with it, place them in a Ziploc bag, tape the bag shut, put a Multiple tag (see directions for multiple items tagging) on the outside and hang item from hook of hanger (punch hole using the hook to hang).

Shoes: If shoes are small enough, place in a Ziploc bag with the tag on the outside. Tape the top of the bag closed so that the shoes cannot be taken out and separated from bag (and your seller number). It is best to mark each shoe with masking tape and your seller number in case they get separated. If shoes are too big for bags, tie through eyelets with curling ribbon or use two separate bags taped together. Make sure that tennis shoes are washed and not too worn.

Tagging Toys and Baby Equipment: Fasten tags securely to your items with clear packaging tape. Do not use scotch or masking tape. You can also punch a hole in the top of your tag and attach the tag securely with a ribbon or string.

Tagging socks, small items, small toy sets: Socks, rattles, hair bows and other small items will sell much better if sold as a set. Please put these similar items together in one Ziploc bag. Clearly label what is in the bag on your tag, and tape the tag on the outside of the Ziploc bag, so that it is visible from the outside. Close your Ziploc carefully and seal the top with tape. Do not bag blankets, bibs, hats, burpcloths, onesies, pajamas. Hang everything that can be hung. Pin a tag directly to items that can’t be hung, such as hats and bibs.

Back-up tag (optional): You can also put masking tape with your consignor number on your items. Should the original tag get lost, we at least know whose item it is, and can possibly re-tag it. Put the tape on the inside of clothing or the bottom of toys, strollers, etc.

Multiple items for one price: Place a tag with the price on the biggest item. On that tag put the number of items in group (ex. 1 of 4). On each additional item place a tag with your seller number and description and in the price put an X where the price should be and mark through the barcode then put which number of group (ex 2 of 4). Use multiple tags for large items with several pieces (ex. Dollhouse or little people toys) or clothing that includes accessories (hair bows ties etc)

Remember

NO plastic or plastic coated wire will be accepted.
NO straight pins – They are dangerous to workers and shoppers!!!
NO small safety pins – they do not stay attached very well and tags tend to fall off.
NO clothes that are stained or have holes will be accepted.
PLEASE DO NOT WASTE TIME TAGGING ITEMS IN A WAY WE WILL NOT ACCEPT.
