Preparing & Tagging - Important!! Please read to end!!!
Here are some guidelines to help as you prepare your items for the sale.
We strongly suggest you set the price at 30% (or slightly less) of the retail value. It is important that you not set your prices too high, the object is to make sure things sell! So for example if something retailed for $20 - you could price it for $5-$7 depending on brand.
The better they look, the better they sell! Please take time to wash and iron your clothes if necessary. Please check for stains, broken zippers, torn hemlines, etc. We will be double checking at the sale and will not accept any item that is not in excellent condition. Use adult size plastic hangers. No metal hangers, please! Plastic hangers can be purchased at discount stores and some even give them away if you ask! We do give consignors hangers back at pick-up to those that consignors that also volunteered.
We do not accept items with stains no matter what you price it! PLEASE check thoroughly for stains, especially white pieces and around the collars of the smaller sizes! We will be checking for stains upon drop-off. Please do not be offended if we find items with stains! We want our shoppers to know that they are getting quality items! We are not a yard sale!
Please group items together so that they will equal a value of at least $2.00. They may be
pinned together on a hanger, or grouped together in Ziploc bags.
We strongly recommend that all pants be pinned to a hanger or a pant/skirt hanger,
NOT folded over, as they tend to end up on the floor. Please do not jam a hanger in a pair
of pants. It will ruin the pants and they will look terrible. 2" safety pins work best for pinning
pants on hanger as they go over the plastic hanger best. Make sure they are pinned as shown and they do not slide left so they don't slide to one side of hanger.
If you are selling a set, top and bottom, the best way to do this is to put them on separate
hangers and rubberband the hangers together. This will make it very clear that they go
together. The items must be visible without taking them off the hanger, otherwise everything
ends up on the floor OR you may hang the shirt on the hanger as you normally would then
turn it over to the back and pin the pants on the outside of the shirt and run pin through
the shirt, catching the hanger also. This allows the shopper to see the pants easily and
prevents the pants from coming apart from the outfit. Please only attach one barcoded tag
to the set as to not confuse the shopper.
For items that have matching accessoriesL Either pin the item to the hanging garment
using a 1 inch or larger safety pin or place the item(s) in a Ziploc style bag and pin the bag
to the hanging item. Please take special precautions to ensure these items do not come
loose from the hanger.
NO UNDERWEAR/BRAS/SWIMWEAR/PJS - unless it is new and in the package!
Please only bring your like-new shoes! Due to the way we display our shoes on racks and NOT in bins, we prefer that you use ZIP TIES (cable ties) loosely so they can be tried on or use string to TIE the shoes together so that they can sit side by side on the shelf. This will keep them from being separated. Then pin the tag through the tie or laces.
Please attach the earring to a piece of cardboard or put in a zip lock bag. These will be displayed on a cork board.
Rings, please attach directly to the tag with string so that the ring can be tried on.
We have hooks for these so no special instructions needed.
To tag your items you will need some supplies:
- Adult sized plastic hangers - no wire hangers
- White cardstock 60-67lb. (no copy paper - it doesn't hold up)
- Safety pins at least 1.5 inch in size, 2 inch is preferred! (no straight pins - they can easily come loose) or tagging gun is acceptable but it can put unnecessary holes in garments to please be careful if using a gun
- Ziploc-type bags for jewerly
Place all garments on hangers with the hook facing to the left
(so it looks like a question mark). If you have a set, safety pin the set together
before placing on the hanger to ensure they stay together.
Attach your tag when looking at the garment to top right of each garment
with a 1 inch or larger safety pin or tagging gun. If using a tagging gun, it is
best to put the needle through the shoulder seam as it not damage the garment.
You can also put it through the sizing tag if the item is very delicate.
If the tag has fallen off, She-cycle Mart cannot sell items, or return them to you if unsold.
