How to prep/tag your items. When Sellers tag everything the same, it makes for an easier shopping experience for our Shoppers! Plus, tags are secured to your items, so there are fewer lost tags. Tagging Supplies Needed: Safety Pins Packing Tape Masking tape or painters tape (for books, puzzles) Saran wrap (puzzles) Hangers (wire preferred, or plastic tube style hangers. No hangers with pants clips) Zip ties (can be found at Dollar Store) Ziplock bags (great for shoes or items with multiple pieces) WHITE card stock Batteries (can be found at Dollar Store) IMPORTANT: All tags should be printed on WHITE cardstock, which is available in the home office section of Walmart, Target or at office supply stores. We will not accept tags printed on copy paper. These tags rip/fall off or crumple, making it for cashiers to scan or for us to sort clothing at the end of sale.

**WHEN TAPING TAGS TO ITEMS, PLEASE AVOID TAPING OVER BARCODE IF POSSIBLE!!** The cashiers will thank you!!
HOW TO HANG + TAG CLOTHING: (see image)
ALL CLOTHING MUST BE ON A HANGER AT DROP OFF. (tops, pants, skirts, shorts, coats/jackets, sports uniforms, dance, dress up/costumes, swimwear). **Hook of hanger should look like a question mark.
SECURE CLOTHING ITEM(S) with safety pins to hanger to prevent item from falling off hanger, getting lost/damaged/dirty.
CONSIGNORS DO NOT GET THEIR HANGERS BACK. You keep hangers from any items you buy.
Metal hangers preferred, plastic tube style hangers accepted.
NOTE: flimsy store hangers have a high risk of breakage, meaning your items could get damaged/lost/dirty. We advise to use sturdier hangers.
NEW:We will NOT be accepting clothing on pants hangers with clips.
sizes newborn-2T must be on child size hangers (plastic tube preferred).
Sizes 3 and up: full size hanger, metal preferred.
PLEASE DO NOT PIN NB-2T TO FULL SIZE HANGER OR HANG SIZE 3T or LARGER ON CHILD SIZE HANGER!!
CLOTHING SETS: Pin sets together with pants pinned to the hanger at the waist- with the right side facing outward. This allows both pieces to be viewed without unpinning the garments. DO NOT PIN PANTS/SHORTS TO BOTTOM EDGE OF SHIRT, the weight will damage the shirt's fabric.
PANTS: skirts, shorts, etc. should be hung at the waist at the top of the hanger (see pic above). This prevents them from sliding on the hanger and falling on the floor. Do NOT fold pants of any kind over the hangers. If bringing a 2 piece/multi-piece item, pin 2nd piece to BACK of hanger, DO NOT PIN IT TO THE FRONT ITEM.
ATTACHING TAGS TO CLOTHING: Pin tag to right side of garment (when looking at item, see pic). Remember, if your tag falls off, we can't make YOU any money! Use only one inch (or larger) safety pins to attach tag. No clothes pins, straight pins or staples please. Also, no small gold pins will be accepted. These pop open easily.
If you are using a tagging gun, ONLY ATTACH BARB IN A SEAM (left armpit, neck tag, neck seam, pants pocket seam)
HOW TO TAG BOOKS Books are fast and easy! Attach tag to BACK COVER of book, using painter's tape or masking tape, to not damage book cover.

HOW TO TAG GAMES/PUZZLES We will accept NEW IN BOX games/puzzles: just tape tag to box with packing tape.
*Games/puzzles have been a consistent source of shopper frustration due to missing pieces, so in an effort to improve quality control, we are implementing the following change: If selling gently used games/puzzle: assemble puzzle/gameboard + pieces, take a pic, print (photocopy is fine) + and attach to game/puzzle box to show all pieces are intact.
HOW TO TAG SHOES Smaller sizes can be placed in ziplock bag, SEAL BAG SHUT with packing tape and tape tag to OUTSIDE of bag. Any size shoes can be secured together (zipties work great) and tag taped to sole of shoe, see video for demo. CLICK HEREfor video tutorial on tagging books + shoes
