Tagging Clothing

  • Price competitively. Good rule of thumb with pricing clothing & accessories is 25-30% of retail (go higher up to 50% of retail if brand name, new with tags or specialty/seasonal item).
  • Consider marking clothing Discount Yes.  Helps items sell and who wants to bring home outgrown, unsold clothing?  We have LOTS of shoppers who shop early then return on Saturday to look for items marked Discount Yes and buy more.
  • Minimum price is $2.00. Price items in 50 cent increments.  You may group similar items together so they equal $2.00.  If necessary, pin a couple of clothing items together on hangers or put a few small toys together in a zip top bag to reach the minimum.
  • Clothing must be on plastic hangers. Hangers sell with the item and you will not receive the hanger back after the sale.
  • Zip all zippers, button all buttons, snap all snaps, etc.
  • Use a safety pin or a tagging gun (preferred) to secure the tag to the clothing. DO NOT use tape to secure tags to clothing. Place pin or barb in the tag or seam of the item to prevent poking holes in the garment. Clothing with holes will be declined at drop off.

Tagging Non Clothing items

  • Small parts should be placed in a zip top bags. If they belong with a larger item, tape the bag to the other item. Use packing tape; scotch tape won’t hold. Items with missing parts don’t sell.
  • Car seats and booster seats are permitted–flip the car seat over and look at the manufacture date stamped on the tag. If it is more than 5 years old we will not accept the set. There should be at least 12 months left on the seat before expiration to sell it.  Click here for carseat checklist and bring to check in (must have checklist to accept car seat). Manuals are required to sell car seat.
  • Manuals help items sell but are not required (except for car seats). Try They are also available on the manufacturers website for download. Place them in zip loc bag and use packing tape to secure to the item.
  • Multiples–one tag per item so if you have multiple pieces to one item please only enter the item once into the system.  Secure multiple pieces together so the shopper doesn’t miss a piece when they purchase an item.  Email us to discuss how to secure.
  • Video, DVD, or electronic games should be in their original cases with the tags taped to the back of the case using packing tape. These items can be bundled by placing in zip top bags. Please make sure these items are free of scratches and are in working order. No VHS or music CD accepted.
