Help us, help you sell your gently used children’s items! This guide gives you general information and tips on best practices that lead to a higher sell-through percentage and helps prevent tags from being separated from your items. Lost Tags = Lost Sales!

  • Organize your items into groups by type: toys, clothing, equipment, etc. Sort all clothing by gender, type, and size. Sorting before entering items will save you time, as you’ll only have to re-enter the price and description for each new item. Item categories remain the same until you change them.
  • Add working batteries to all items.
  • Costumes / dress up go on a hanger (sell better in Fall / Winter).
  • CLEAN all items well: wipe them down with a wet or dry cloth. Check for stains, rips, tears, holes, odors or damage.
  • Attach the tag using pins, packing tape, masking / painters tape or zip ties; depending on the material of the item.
  • Zip tie bags or multiple pieces to the large item.
  • With large items, we suggest also placing a piece of masking tape directly on the toy with your consignor number, item number, and price. This will enable us to sell your item even if the tag comes off!
  • Use masking or painters tape to attach tag on items that tape would damage.
  • Bagged items – attach tag to item inside the bag.  
  • Very all parts and working order. 
  • Pins must be run through the tag twice on clothing to prevent from being torn free from item.
  • Instruction and Warranty Documentation – added bonus for buyers on larger items! Visit the manufacturer’s website to download instructions; use a zip-lock bag and zip tie to item.
  • Use packing tape to seal baggies.
  • Use packing tape folder over part of tag when tag could be torn free from item (i.e. when punching hole for zip tie).
  • Bag any small parts and securely attach the bag to the main item.
  • Use masking or painters tape for books, DVDs, games, puzzles or other items where regular tape may damage the item.
