CONSIGNOR ~ HELPFUL HINTS

TO HELP YOU MAKE THE MOST MONEY AND HAVE THE BEST EXPERIENCE!

  1. Enter and Tag your Big Ticket items first! This helps to ensure you don't run out of time. Those are the items you want to be sure to sell to make the most money.
  2. Group cheaper items together so shoppers get a bargain. (Ex. Group several onesies together and sell for one price)
  3. Let all your items go HALF-OFF on Sunday - If you don't then you are cutting yourself out of a whole day of selling. It’s better to sell them then taking them back home and having to store them.
  4. Presentation is everything. Make sure your clothes are washed, not wrinkled and hung properly. Button all buttons so the item looks nice.
  5. Make sure baby equipment and toys are VERY CLEAN!
  6. Reminder - clothes with stains Do Not sell. Be sure to go through your clothes carefully to ensure they are in very good condition, the right season and are free of stains. It is a waste of time for you to enter and tag them to just have them handed back to you.
  7. A good thing to remember - If you wouldn't buy it - Don't consign it!
  8. Start entering now and don't wait until the last minute. Do a little each day!
  9. Price Competitively - You want your items to sell. Overpriced items do not sell. Also, in order to price effectively, you have to eliminate emotional attachment to items.
  10. Make sure you have a good description on your tag so if a tag falls off, the price can still be found if searched for in the computer system.
  11. When dropping off – make sure your items are placed in the correct location and especially in the correct size. If someone is dropping off for you – please make sure they know the importance of doing this. Items in the wrong place don’t sell especially clothes placed in the wrong size or gender.
  12. Be sure to DONATE as many items as possible to help those in need, You can take any donations off of your taxes.
  13. If an item has already been through a sale and you are bringing it back to try again. Please be sure to lower the price a good bit and really examine the condition to make sure it is worth selling. If you are trying to sell an item for a 3rd time - it is most likely time to donate that item.
  14. To ensure items do not end up in our NO TAG section - Please be sure your items are tagged very well. Also, make sure all pieces are EXTRA SECURED to their items.

Helpful Sorting Tips

If you would like to make your items "stand out" from other consignors, we suggest you put a special touch to your tag or hangers.
Examples:
-put a colored sticker in the corner of your tag.
-highlight a part of your card (price, consignor number, description, etc).
-put a colored sticker around the neck of the hanger.
-be creative :)

TOYS

Please make certain that all pieces of a toy item are securely fastened together and that your toy is complete. Use packaging tape, Ziploc bags, clear plastic containers, zip-ties, etc. ~ but please make sure that all the items are secure.
