HANGERS – in order to protect your clothing items we only accept plastic hangers. Find plastic hangers at Wal-Mart, Target, Dollar Stores. Retail plastic hangers are acceptable too.
STRING TAGS – Avery White Marking Tags Strung (size 1.75 x 1.093 inches) are required on each item to affix our barcode labels to. You can find these at Wal-Mart, office supply stores, the Rhea Lana Store or large quantities may be purchased from Amazon.
You’ll also need re-sealable bags (for shoes, small toys, etc…), masking tape, scotch tape, sharpie, and safety pins. For large quantities of quality safety pins we recommend ordering from Cleaners Supply .
If you would like to print your barcodes at home you’ll need adhesive address labels size 1” X 2 5/8” (30 up). We recommend ordering from Amazon Here. Please note: all labels printed at home MUST be printed in color.
The better they look, the better they sell! Please take time to wash and iron your clothes if necessary. Also, a simple spritz with a water bottle usually helps knock out wrinkles without having to pull out your iron! Please check for stains, broken zippers, torn hemlines, etc.
We will be checking your items at the store and will not receive any item that is not in excellent condition.
Use small PLASTIC hangers for sizes 8 and below. Use larger PLASTIC hangers for sizes 10 and above. You may also use wire coated hangers as long as they are 'size appropriate.' No metal hangers, please! Plastic and wire-coated hangers can be purchased at discount stores. This makes shopping more pleasant for everyone! Click here to see what is acceptable and not acceptable for the Sale.
For our spring/summer event we will be accepting shorts, jeans, capris, short sleeved shirts, light weight long sleeved items (please save your heavy coats and fleece for our fall/winter sale!), summer outfits, tank tops, swim suits, dance wear, sporting equipment, dress up outfits, dresses, and suits. We will also accept school appropriate shorts and short sleeved shirts.
Please group items together so that they will equal a value of at least $3.00. They need to be pinned together as well so they don't get separated.
All pants must be clipped or pinned to a hanger, not folded over, as they tend to end up on the floor and shoppers want to see the entire pant to purchase.
Safety pin all sets and accessories securely together with pants hung on the back of the shirt at the waist. Both pieces need to be viewable without unpinning them.
Please only bring your like-new, clean shoes!
1) This is what I do: throw those shoes in the washer, air-dry in front of my fridge on the floor where the hot air blows out, and then they're ready to sell!
2) Put your consignor number and price on masking/painters tape on the inside of the shoes, this will help us if a tag falls off or is lost.
3) Safety pin the string tag to a shoe lace or through the shoe eyelet.
4) Ziptie shoes together. I also include a string tag on the ziptie to save the step of safety pinning one!
Your shoes are prepped and ready now!
For delicate shoes, put in a ziplock bag. The ziptie isn't necessary if you use a ziplock. Shoes are typically shopped better out of a bag, though, so only use one if needed.
In-season shoes sell! Save winter boots for the Fall/Winter Event and save flip flops for the Spring/Summer Event.
We will not accept shoes with scuffed toes or dirty or discolored soles. They don't sell! Momma's want clean!
It is best to package a bedding set together in its original clear plastic bag with zipper. Large ziploc bags can also be purchased to keep bedding clean and together. They sell the XL bags at the dollar stores. Hanging bedding on a large hanger is also an option. PRICE COMPETITIVELY!
Hang and pin blankets over hangers so that shoppers can see them. If they are small receiving blankets, group 2 or 3 together in a ziploc bag and seal with clear plastic tape. Safety pin tag to ziploc bag. PRICE COMPETITIVELY!
Bottles, bibs, rattles, socks, bows, etc group together appropriately in ziploc bags. Seal with clear packing tape. Pin tag to ziploc bag. It also helps to write your consignor number and info on the ziploc with a Sharpie in case the tag comes off during the sale.
Must be clean and in working order (batteries included.) Small parts must be bagged and attached to the main part very securely. If parts get separated it will not sell. Games should be taped closed. Puzzles, books, videos and small toys should be grouped accordingly and put in ziploc bags OR secured together with painters tape. Secure ziplocks with clear packing tape and pin tag to the ziploc bag. It is also good to write your consignor number and info on the ziploc bag with a Sharpee in case the tag comes off. Puzzles should be wrapped securely in clear Saran wrap to keep the pieces intact. Please package with the thought of selling in a retail environment! Secure, easy to see, appealing!
We will only accept Disney or other name brand stuffed animals in like new condition.
Large Little Tikes Toys and Furniture are in high demand! When tagging large toys it is best to also attach a piece of masking tape to the toy with your consignor information. This will enable us to sell your toy even if the tag comes off! We sell 95% of Toys, Furniture and Baby Equipment!
We don't sell recalled toys! We reserve the right to pull any toy that we think might have been recalled. To help us, please do not bring any toys that have been subject to a recall.

Due to the thousands of recalls and the crib regulations being raised, we will not sell any crib manufactured before December 2011. Contact the manufacturer of your crib to find out if it is recalled. Most companies will send you a repair kit or give you instructions on how to return your crib for a refund.
