Item Prep Guide

  • 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.
  • Large item tags (Hold tag /2-to-page format) – used for hard to carry or do not fit in an IKEA bag.
  • Multi-piece large items – print multiple copies of tag; write on each copy: “1 of _”, “2 of _”, etc.
  • 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 the tag to the item inside the bag.  
  • Add working batteries to all items.
  • 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.
  • Costumes / Dress Up go on a hanger (sell better in Fall / Winter).
  • 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).
  • Pins must be run through the tag twice to prevent from being torn free from item.
  • CLEAN all items well: wipe them down with a wet or dry cloth. Check for stains, rips, tears, holes, odors or damage.
  • Ensure you have all the parts and the item is in working order. 
  • Bag any small parts and securely attach the bag to the main item.
  • Attach the tag using pins, packing tape, masking / painters tape or zip ties; depending on the material of the item.
  • Use masking or painters tape for books, DVDs, games, puzzles or other items where regular tape may damage the item.

Clothing Prep GUidelines

  • INSPECT – INSPECT – INSPECT before you enter item into the system. In good lighting, check for dirt, pilling, stains, broken zippers, torn hemlines, or odor. 
  • Must be clean, gently worn
  • Hang all clothing EXCEPT bundled onesies (see guidelines below).
  • Hangers should face left, like a question mark (?).
  • Pin all pieces of outfits to the top of the hanger. 
  • Idea: fold packing tape of two top sections of hanger, then pin through clothing and tape to prevent sliding off. 
  • Pin tags to the top right corner of the clothing; run pin through tag twice to prevent from tearing off.
  • Pin the waist of bottoms to the top of a hanger, not to the horizontal bar or folded over. Idea!
    *Recommend folding packing tape over the hanger and run the pins through the packing tape to attach to the hanger. This keeps the bottoms from sliding to one end of the hanger.
