Seller Emails – September 2023

9/22/2023: Check-in Updates & Restock

Subject: IMPORTANT Update to Check-In Information, Restock & More

This is a big weekend for preparing and bundling your tagged items. We will do our very best to provide a smooth check-in experience! Lots of information here, so bear with us on the length. :o) 


Item entry is CLOSED! See bottom of email regarding restock updates. 

Sellers with ZERO INVENTORY have received an email with instructions on their options. Sellers without inventory will not receive a seller shopping pass but are afforded alternative options!~ 

Please check out the September Event Seller Emails page to catch up on what emails you may have missed!~ 


We still have openings if you are able to loan us your wagon for seller check-in. This can be found in the optional Team & Barter section in MyCM.  


Restock check-in is now OPEN for you to enter more items for a $1 fee (sorry, no way around this in the system). We are opening this early but please be sure to keep your restock items separate from your regular inventory. Restock items will not be in the system until Wednesday and cannot be sold. Items not in the system will not be able to be scanned; therefore, it’s very important that you do not bring these items early. Please select a check-in appointment for restock. 

All items are accepted EXCEPT clothing right now. We will add in certain allowable clothing by gender/size once we know what we’ll have room for on restock.  

It is IMPORTANT that you do not delete anything in your restock inventory if you are concerned with your sell-through rate. Once you delete items from your restock inventory, it messes with the calculations and we have no way to correct it. This is a system error that MyCM is working to correct. You can edit items, no problem but don’t delete. And if you aren’t worried about your sell-through rate, do whatever works best for you!~ 


The check-in process will look a little different than everyone is used to seeing! Due to construction at the venue next door, parking will be extremely limited. Parking will be ACROSS THE STREET after you have unloaded your items. There will be THREE rows of access to pull-up to the venue to unload. Please review the pdf here for check-in unloading flow and parking areas. and the check-in area map. Here is an aerial view of the parking and check-in if you like to see a different visual.  

We suggest you do not bring children to check-in. If you must bring kids, be careful crossing the roads when parking and look for a row of chairs near the enterance for them to wait for you while you check-in items. Children cannot assist flooring items or be amongst the tables / racks during the check-in. No exceptions, thanks for understanding. 

Below are specific instructions based on the type of check-in appointment – Please arrived at your scheduled time as check-in types (valet/standard/new seller) are time blocked. You will be marked off by name/seller number in order to confirm check-in type.  

Please be sure to read the instructions carefully so we are all on the same page. We will need everyone to do their part to make check-in go smoothly! If you haven’t secured a check-in time please do so ASAP. Valet vs Standard check-in options are also explained in the link in the next paragraph. 

Regardless of which day you are checking in – the bagging, and general instruction are the same. On the September Event page, go to the Seller Central and review ‘Preparing for Check-In’, as well as ‘Check In Appointment Types & Procedures’ to see the UPDATED numbering system and venue map. Please prepare well at home before you pack your car. Here are a few important reminders:  

  • PLEASE DO NOT LEAVE BOXES. Take them with you if you use them. It takes a lot of employee hours to break down and transfer boxes to the dumpster each sale and we’d rather spend the time beautifying the venue for shopping!   
  • Clothing is to be LOOSELY rubberbanded in bundles by size/gender – please don’t wrap the rubberband too tightly. Please do not use zip ties, yarn, etc.  
  • Separate out heavy winter coats and snow pants (outerwear) from clothing and rubberband them by size/gender. 
  • Separate out costumes/dress-up and rubberband them by size/gender. 
  • Double check that all your large items (anything that doesn’t fit in an IKEA bag) have the large format (2-to-page) barcode tag securly attached.  
  • Last season we had 100’s of items that sellers had to fix on site – it is much easier for you do to so at home.  
  • Large items without large item tags will need to be taken home to retag or you can purchase on for of our pdf tags for 1.00 each and fix the tag in your car then bring the item back in and place it on the sale floor.  
  • Choose the large format (2-to-page) barcode tag for high-value items that get secured, furniture, infant equipment, outdoor toys, larger toys, fragile toys, and high-value items (secured by the registers) must have the larger barcode tag attached – choose the 2-to-page tag format in the drop down menu when printing – please watch the large item tag video 
  • You can reprint your tags anytime. 
  • High-Value Items items that need to be secured to the yellow rack near the registers should be may be valued at $20 or more.  
  • These items require large item tags to be secured at the yellow rack near the registers.  
  • Sellers must secure these items to the rack with zip ties.  
  • A table will be setup for toy inspection (Bag #6). Sellers will present items to a team member with the items turned on to test the buttons before toys are placed on the floor. Batteries will be available at $1 each for the sellers to replace if batteries are inoperable, or you can plan to bring extra batteries with you.  

PDF of Check-In Map 

Standard Check-In Process 

  1. Drive up to portico and unload your Area 1 KidStuff inside the venue lobby. 
  1. Drive around to Area 2 in back of venue and unload there – all large items MUST have large item tags.
  1. Last door is Area 3, book and clothing drop-off. Hang your rubber banded clothing on a Z-rack and it will be placed onto the floor while you park your car. (You’ll hang your clothes in their sections by gender/size and leave them banded together.)
  1. Come to the front of venue, park, then come back inside to complete check-in process and floor your items that were unloaded to each area.

Team partners will be on hand for guidance and questions. Bags and clothing not unloaded in the appropriate areas or left in lobby will be set aside and not floored. Thanks for understanding. 

New Seller Check-In (during new seller check-in window) – Follow the instructions on Standard Check-In above. After you come in the venue, there will be a Team Member setup at a table in the Lobby to assist you!~ 

Valet Check-In Process *depending on the size/weight of large items be prepared to help unload.  

  1. Pull up to portico, check-in your seller number with a Team Member, scan the QR code for valet check-in using your smart device while the KidStuff team unloads Area 1 bags and infant equipment. High-value items must be separated and identified to a Team Member to secure on the high-value rack. 
  1. Drive around building clockwise to Area 2, large items. You may need to assist the KidStuff team in loading larger items that take two people to move. Examples are furniture, cribs, train tables, bikes, trampolines.
  1. Drive to Area 3, books and clothing corner. Book bags and clothing will be unloaded onto Z racks by KidStuff team partners. *Clothing not properly tagged/bundled/prepared will not be accepted.

Done! Unless you forgot to put large tag format on larger item – if so, you’ll park and come in to correct the tag. 


Please pack your car so we can access your items in this order. Thanks!

Happy Tagging! 

9/15/2023: Encouragement for Sellers with ZERO INVENTORY – There’s still time!!!!

Subject: TGIF! Returning/New Sellers, this one’s for you! ~Kellee 

Thank Goodness It’s FRIDAY! Hope you all have had an amazing week! I just wanted to touch base with some of our RETURNING/NEW SELLERS! Get to tagging your items asap! – our system indicates you’ve not started tagging yet! The deadline to enter items is Wednesday, September 20th!   This is the last weekend you’ll have to enter your items! If you have any questions/concerns that are keeping you from getting started on entering/tagging items, please email me (Kellee) at OR join the KidStuff Sale IN-PERSON Sale Seller Group here where you can search the group for answers to your questions or PM me directly! 

Running out of time? Enter 5 items a day from now to Wednesday so you can at least clear some clutter, earn your registration fee back AND SHOP EARLY!!!! Only sellers with inventory get to shop early! 

You’ve got this! Grab those toys, summer clothing and shoes and you’ll have a couple hundred dollars in stuff tagged in just a few hours! You have plenty of time!! Remember, you can print your tags at any point once the data is in the system. Focus on data entry through Wednesday, then print and prep your stuff!

9/14/2023: Item Entry Deadline & Other Info

Subject: Sep 20 Item Entry Deadline, Large Item Tags and More

SEPTEMBER 20th is the item entry deadline for initial drop off. There’s still plenty of time to get items entered. Restock registration will open on Monday, September 25th. See the seller timeline on the September Event page for details. 

Large Item Tags! Don’t forget to print a large item tag for larger toys, furniture, larger items that are too bulky to carry around and don’t fit in an IKEA bag and High-Value merchandise (that gets secured near the registers). When in doubt, use BOTH the large item tag and the normal tag. Here are a couple of YouTube videos on Large Item tags for you to check out: 

Examples of items that need large tags: Activity Tables, Ball Pit Balls & Pits, Bassinets, Bicycles, Trailers, Booster Seats, Changing Tables, Cribs, Desks, Exersaucers, XL Toys, Large Doll Houses, Kitchens, Outdoor Games & Toys, Train Tables, Scooters, Sports Equipment, Strollers, Tents, Tunnels, Work Benches, Toy Chests, Furniture, & Unicycles How to access and print large item tag format How to attach large item tag 

TIPS ON TEEN CLOTHING! Teen doesn’t mean a teenager wears it. TEEN Clothing refers to Teen brands like Hollister, Abercrombie, etc. For sizing, if it’s a size 14, determine if it’s closer to a youth 14 or a women’s 14…closer to youth, put with Girls’ Clothing size 14…closer to a women’s 14 (XL or so), put with TEEN Girl Clothing. Reference the Seller Central via the September Event Seller page to find more information. 

Don’t forget about the power tagging option that eliminates entering all of the details. Some seller use this option all the time, some use this in a pinch to enter all of their items in bulk at the last minute before the deadline. 

Don’t forget to grab your check-in appointment 

NEW SELLERS have the OPTION to conduct check-in during the New Seller TLC Check-In on Sunday, September 24th from 1pm-6pm. During this time we will have staff available to provide in-depth guidance, conduct on the spot corrections to tagging/pricing, answer any questions you may have, etc.. It is not mandatory that new sellers check-in during this time, but it is a time we have set aside just for YOU! Find us at the table in the lobby. 

To increase effectiveness of event communications, we have consolidated all emails onto one page where you can view the information in one place. Please check out the September Event Seller Emails page to catch up on what you may have missed!~ 

*When sending emails to us at, please include your seller number and which sale you are referencing.

SHOES: Shared on Facebook Seller Group – Now, emailing to all Sellers:

SHOES, SHOES, SHOES!! Shoes sell GREAT at KidStuff Sale! We will have thousands of pairs for sale and mamas go straight to the *shoe room*! Regarding quantities, in past seasons we have been very close to running out of shoes (no joke) SO we raised the shoe limit and for a couple of seasons didn’t place a limit at all However, doing so opened us up to another issue – an increase in nasty shoes! Dirt on the bottom of cleats, boots, badly worn athletic shoes, and sole-stained sandals, etc.

So IF you have a high number of amazing shoes in LIKE NEW condition we are happy to raise your shoe limit because they will sell. Email to request an increase. We want your shoes – all of them – as long as they are clean and in great condition for the next family!

Required Seller at Home Item Inspection

Digging through dirty & shoes with worn toes…putting back the stained clothing…finding books with writing on the pages…infant equipment that might just need batteries…‘Ain’t Nobody Got Time for That!’  

We want to help YOU sell your things! That is what you’ve hired us to do! We continue to have positive responses to holding HIGH-quality standards on our items offered and plan to refine this process and enhance everyone’s experience – based primarily on YOUR recommendations.   

To make sure this happens, we must maintain the integrity and KidStuff standards of quality. We’ve implemented and requested a deep-dive inspection at-home process in the past but now feel the need to add administrative fees moving forward. The goal is to hold us all accountable *to thoroughly inspecting our individual items AT HOME… BEFORE tagging, and certainly BEFORE arriving for check-in.  We want YOU, our sellers, and obviously our community of shoppers to have a GREAT experience – to shop with confidence of quality and to return for future events.  

The fees are not intended to be punitive, rather, to ensure our sellers slow down, and take the time to properly inspect items. Fees help to cover the labor costs of handling, checking, pulling, and storing unsellable items and/or contacting the seller to come in to correct the issue.

Discretion will be used by our team leads; we know accidental oversight happens. Review ‘What We Accept’, ‘What We Do Not Accept’, and ‘General Guidelines’ on the Seller Central and you will not have to worry about fees!  

  • Recalled Items – $25 for each item *Check the recall website if you are unsure 
  • Expired Car Seats, Cribs, and Mattresses – $25 for each item *Refer to What We Sell
  • Battery Replacement – $10 for each item  
  • Stained/Damaged unsellable Clothing & Shoes – $1 each item  
  • Unaccepted category Items – $1 for each item such as adding women’s clothing in juniors and athleisurewear. This takes the team hours to pull these items! Please add women’s items to our virtual events.  
  • Valet Check-In without Appointment – Cost of General Valet plus an additional $5  
  • Large Item Tags – $1 each (forgotten at home, didn’t use large item tag, etc. – request tag at the large item check-in door)  
  • Improper Item Prep – $10 flat fee (backward hanger direction, zip ties vs. rubber bands to group on hangers, regular weight paper tags, single pin through tag (pin in and out of barcode tag), not putting large tag on an obvious large item before or during check-in, not pinning to hanger properly, etc.) Team will pull items and contact seller giving them the opportunity to fix and re-floor items.  
  • Tags Won’t Scan – $10 flat fee if more than 15 items don’t scan (sadly when 15+ tags don’t scan chances are that the seller’s entire inventory doesn’t scan causing the front-line team to have to manually enter each and every barcode in order to sell their items – this slows down the check-out line for all shoppers.  xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

* Suggestions – check your barcode with a free barcode scan app on mobile – does it scan okay?   

* Selection draft or fine printer setting when printing – make sure you can see the white lines between the barcode lines. Heavy printing or freshly replaced ink can cause smearing of the barcode.   

* Use Copy Palace, one of our printing partners – a cost-effective and time-saving resource! Email your pdf and call to see when it’ll be available for pick-up. They know our printing requirements and cut the tags for you.  

     Copy Palace, Inc.  

     open Monday – Friday *call before picking up* 

     10478 Bluegrass Parkway 

     Louisville, KY 40299 

     (502) 254-5300  

We understand that ‘play quality’ will sell and all families need them…however, given the amount of clothing sellers want to check in we choose to bring the best possible selection to our shopping community Worn shoes, stained clothing and poor-quality books should be withheld for local yard sales, donated or discarded.  

 Thank you for your understanding. TOGETHER we host an amazing KidStuff Sale for all! We look forward to helping you sell your items and source quality gently used items.

9/8/2023: Sell-Through Incentives Fall 2023

Subject: Sell-Through Incentives & Improved Communications

KidStuff Sale tracks each consignor/seller’s sell-through percentage rates for inventory and value.  Our goal is to help you sell as much as possible for the highest overall value. See the hints and tips offered at the end of this message.  As always, contact us directly with questions.   

Your sell-through rate is calculated by your total # of items sold on ‘View Settlement’ DIVIDED BY total # of items indicated in your online inventory.  Example: 175 items sold from original inventory of 200 items = 87.5%.     

We also track % sell-through of the value of items – For example, Items valued at $297 sold for total of $285 is 96% value sell-through.  This factor speaks to good pricing overall and more inventory selling at full price vs discounted.      

Sellers who enter and check-in 125 or more items will be eligible for sell-through incentives.   

In addition to HUGE bragging rights, the Fall 2023 Louisville In-Person incentives for the top 150 are ALL the following (to be redeemed at the Spring 2024 Louisville In-Person sale):    

  • Free valet check-in!
  • One-hour earlier seller presale shopping time!
  • Skip-the-line Fast Pass for express checkout on seller presale night!
  • Additional 50 items of inventory!


Every seller with 80% or better item sell-through at the Fall 2023 Event will be entered into a drawing to win 80% of their sales.  Three winners will be announced via email just prior to the PayPal Payouts!    

We are here to help you sell the most … make the most$!  

Ways to maximize your sell-through percentage and EARN MORE MONEY:   

  • Inspect EVERYTHING before you enter items in the system, again when you attach your tag and again before you load your car… to ensure they meet KidStuff Sale quality expectations. Unsellable items removed from the floor work against sell-through rate and result in fees.   
  • Remove off-season items from your inventory as well as items you’ve decided to give away or have sold elsewhere.  Make sure your inventory list is clean and meaningful.  
  • Make sure toys have working batteries and large equipment has been wiped down – dirty or non-working items will be pulled from the floor and negatively affect your sell-through.  
  • Secure your tags to your items- use packing tape and a hole punch to reinforce items that require a cable tie and barcode tags for equipment, larger items that cannot be easily carried and higher priced items.  
  • Pin the tag to clothing through the middle of the tag, with the safety pin going through the clothing twice. Lost tags = lost sales  
  • Use detailed descriptions to help your tag be “reunited” with the item if they separate.   
  • Price Competitively and Discount your Items!  
  • Don’t “price up” to earn a few extra dollars- if a toy typically sells for $5.00 and you price it at $6.50, it may not sell until discount day- then you’ll only earn $3.25 instead of the $5.00 if you had priced it correctly!  

We are excited to work with you to build great inventory, merchandise and sell more quality KidStuff.

We are also offering paid tickets at three levels. Platinum, Gold, and Silver presale tickets are offered again this season beginning at 12 p.m. on September 26th for sellers who are unable to join us as a team member to work but would like an opportunity to shop earlier.  Or join the team, team shop times begin at 8:30 a.m. and run through a start time of 11:30 based on hours working – if you’d like to join the team visit this link to complete the employment application.
