Tagging Your Items
All new consignors must use our barcoding system to tag items. Hand written tags are allowed for a few items if you still have things to tag after the barcoding system closes at 2pm the Friday before the sale.
The general rule of thumb is to price items 1/3rd of retail. See our pricing reference for help with pricing items. Any item over $1.00 must be priced in $0.50 increments ($1.50, $2.00, $2.50, etc). We no longer accept any item priced under $1.00.
Tags should be printed on white or light colored, non-textured card stock. Be sure your printer has sufficient ink because faded or broken barcodes can not be scanned. Do not use regular weight paper as it rips easily and gets lost. Do not shrink tags to fit more to a page.
Tags should be attached to clothing/soft materials with a safety pin or a tagging gun. Pins should go through the tag in a single location and should not be threaded through. Do not additionally tape pins to tags. Tags can be taped or tied to toys, equipment, and other non-material items. Consider using blue painters tape on items such as books and puzzles that may be damaged by removing the tape.
HAND WRITTEN TAGS
After the barcoding system closes, you can still tag items with hand written tags, but they should follow the same format as barcoded tags with the exception of the barcode and item number. The price should be written on the bottom of the tag and must say “No Discount” if you do not want it sold for half price. Items without proper tags will not be sold at the sale.
Please remember our volunteers must remove the tags during the check out process. Tags should be secure, but we should still be able to remove them without breaking our fingers 🙂
