     Price

          While it may seem daunting, pricing your items is simple with our online inventory system

          We want you to have a successful sale and earn a lot of cash, so we urge you to price your items to
          sell.  Think of sales, coupons, clearance, and outlet prices.  Our shoppers are eager to find bargains
          and will make a lot of purchases when they do!  Overpricing is the #1 reason for small consignor
          returns.  

          When entering your item please use a detailed description to assist us in matching lost tags with
          items and to ensure tags are not switched by dishonest people.

          If you plan on donating, mark your item as discount to give them the best chance to sell

          This pricing guide from our friends at Consignment Mommies is a very helpful tool 

         
          Discount
               Saturday's sale is 50% off select items.  If you would like your items to be sold at half price,
               check the Discount box.  

               We highly recommend discounting as this gives your items a great chance at selling the busiest
               time!  It also helps your pickup pile to be a lot smaller!

          Donate
               We are thrilled to be help you help our local community in need.   Our consignor family has
               given truckloads of items to local charities!

               If you would like to donate any unsold item at the end of the sale, check the donate box.  We
               will take care of the rest.

               All items marked donate must also be marked discount

               Immediately after the close of the sale, these items will be picked up by the current sale's
               charity partner

          Deadline 
               The system will close promptly at 11:59pm on Tuesday, February 20th.  You will no longer
               be able to make changes or add inventory after this time.

          Item Limits
              
There is a limit of 350 clothing items per consignor.                                                                                Valet Consignors 300 item limit.  Additional fee of $10 will be required for items over 300
               Total item limit is 500 per consignor




     Tag

          You can print tags as you go, or at the end of your pricing.  It is up to you!  Scroll below for                       guidelines for different types of items

          All tags must be printed on white cardstock in fresh black ink.  Please check tags while you print as
          faded barcodes will not scan.

          Handwritten tags will not be accepted.  Only printed tags with barcodes may be used.

          If you make any changes to an item in your inventory, including discount or donate, you MUST
          reprint and retag.  

          When tagging and preparing all of your items, make them "childproof".  Packing tape, ziplock bags,           plastic wrap, zip ties...  Secure, Secure... then Secure some more!  

          Tagging Supply List

                White Cardstock
                Hangers (all clothing items must be on hangers.  Onesies, bibs, socks may be in ziplock bags)
                Ziplock Bags

                Safety Pins
                Tagging Gun (find great buys on Ebay and Amazon)
                Marker, Colored Pencil or a Bingo Dauber of your assigned consignor color to mark tags
                Packing Tape/Painters Tape
                Zip Ties
                Laundry products
                Fresh batteries for toys if needed
                

          **NEW** Color Coding For Non Donated Items** UPDATED**

               UNLESS YOU ARE DONATING AN ITEM, ALL TAGS must be color coded with a marker BELOW                  THE SIZE on the tag (see picture for an idea of how to color code)
               
               Do not print your tags on colored cardstock.  Use WHITE CARDSTOCK ONLY
              
               Using the guide below, find your consignor number to learn your assigned color
               
               After printing each tag on WHITE CARDSTOCK, color BELOW THE SIZE with an easily                                recognizable amount of your color
              

               If you do not color your tag, it will be considered a donation and will be loaded on the truck.  No
               Exceptions.

               Example of desired placement for your color coding:
  
                         


              Tagging Clothing
                    All clothing items must be on hangers (including pants, skirts, shorts, etc)

                   Onesies, Bibs and new socks/undergarments may be placed in ziplock bags sealed with 
                   packing tape

                   Hang each item so the hanger looks like a question mark     ?
        
                   Make sure your item is secure on the hanger.  Use safety pins if needed to ensure they don't                    fall off

                   Tag each item with a silver safety pin on the outer side of the hanger (when looking at 
                   your item on the hanger it would be on the top right side.

                   If you are using a Tagging Gun, please tag in a seam under the armpit or on the clothing
                   item's tag at the neck for tops and dresses or the back of the pants

               Tagging Shoes
                    Secure together with a zip tie, heavy string, or a ziplock bag that is sealed shut with clear
                    packing tape

                    Attach the tag to the zip tie or string, tape it to the ziplock bag, or inside the heel of the shoe
                    with clear packing tape
       
               Tagging Toys/Books/Games
                    Secure tags with clear packing tape or blue painter's tape on damageable items

                    Any loose pieces must be placed in a ziplock bag that is sealed shut with packing tape only.
                    This is to ensure the pieces stay with your toy and are not played with and lost 

                    Some consignors use clear plastic wrap to secure puzzles and games with loose pieces 

                    Secure these bags to your toy with zip ties or more packing tape.  Make sure they cannot
                    easily come off your toy or be opened

                    Please note:  MANY little ones accompany our families to our events.  While we try our best
                    to monitor playing, we cannot babysit your items.   Our best advice is to make your toys
                    childproof!  Secure.. Secure... then Secure some more!
    
                    We will not be responsible for any lost pieces or items

               Tagging All Other Items

                    Tag should be secured on a flat part of your item if possible

                    Ensure that your tag will not fall off using either clear packing tape, blue painter's tape on
                    damageable items, silver safety pins, or zip ties

                    Small items may be placed in ziplock bags with their tag and  sealed shut with clear packing
                    tape
