Tagging and Preparing Merchandise
Kids Clothing Consignment Sale (KCC) accepts only quality, clean, ready to wear items. Please make sure to check all of your clothing items for stains, tears, broken zippers, missing buttons, etc. Presentation of your items is important! Properly displayed items typically sell much quicker and at a higher price than others. You receive 70% of the sale price of your items!
Tags MUST BE PRINTED ON WHITE CARDSTOCK. We will not accept tags on white copy paper. If you have previously tagged using color cardstock, you DO NOT have to retag, but please tag all current items with WHITE cardstock.
If you do not have a printer, you can save your tags as a PDF and have a local print store print them for you: UPS Store, Staples, Office Depot, FedEx/Kinkos. They will even cut them for a small fee! Make sure you have them print on WHITE cardstock!
You set the price of your items!
Our BEST Pricing advice: What would YOU pay for it??
We recommend 25% – 30% of the original purchase price.
NEW SPRING 2022: Pricing starts at $1.oo Please price in $.50 increments only (no $7.99, etc.). We do not negotiate or bargain with buyers to lower the price of any of your merchandise.
Our tag style has changed! Tags will print 10/page. Previous style tag will still scan, so no need to retag.
All clothing items must be tagged on the front using our barcoded tags. Items without a barcoded tag cannot be sold. See the Create Tags tab to input your tagging information and print your tags. Please affix your tags to the front of each item in the upper right of the garment with a 1 or 1 1/2 inch (large) safety pin. No straight pins, tape, etc. Large safety pins will secure your tag in the best way or use a tagging gun if you prefer, barbs must go in neck seam or left armpit seam for tops. Your items should be hung with the hook of the hanger facing to the left (so it looks like a question mark) See example below.
NEW SPRING 2022: NO PANT HANGERS.
Pant Hangers allow for items to fall into the floor, please pin to wire or thicker plastic tube style hangers.
When using wire hangers, you can pin or zip tie the pants through the manufacturers tag and attach it to the hanger. This will keep the pants/shorts from slipping to one side of the hanger. See example..
For delicate fabric, you may attach your bar-coded tag to the manufacturers tag inside the collar of the item. Make sure your tag is completely visible on the outside of the garment
SMALL SHOES: Please use Ziploc Bags for ALL SMALLER SHOES (no shoe boxes please). Your bar-coded tag should be taped to the back of the Ziploc bag (this allows a buyer to see the shoes in the bag).
LARGE SHOES: Please use zip ties for all larger shoes that will not fit in a Ziploc bag. Please zip tie shoes together and securely attach tag to shoes with tape or a safety pin.
