Tagging Your Items

BARCODING

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.

PAPER

Tags should be made from light colored card stock or index cards. Do not use texturized paper or dark colors because the scanners will not be able to read barcodes. 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.

ATTACHING YOUR TAGS

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. ​

PRICE

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.

HAND WRITTEN TAGS

Tags that are done by hand should look similar to the barcoded tags. Please write consignor number on the top center of the tag and put the description of the item in the middle. 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 🙂
