Tagging Tips and Instructions

TAG Template.jpg
Follow these simple tips for the FASTEST and EASIEST way to get your items tagged and to the sale:

Clothing and Shoes: 

  • Each consignor is allowed 200 hanging items per 1 consignor number.  If you desire to consign more, you may add 100 more items for another $10.

  • Make 3 piles...current season (Summer or Winter clothing) girls, current season boys and out of season items. 

        

  • Bag up the items that aren't in the current season, label and put them away until the next sale.                                     

  • Take your current season items for girls and put them into size piles.

These are our size divisions: 

Preemie           24 mo. / 2T        8/ M  

0-3 mo.           3T                     9&10 / L

3-6 mo.           4T /XS               12 / L (girls: Jr.1/XS)

6-9 mo.           5T                     14 (girls: Jr. 3/S)

12 mo.            6 /S                 16 / XL (girls: Jr. 5/M)

18 mo.            7-7/8

 

NOTE: If you have an item that is 3 month it will go with the 0-3s not the 3-6.  This will apply for the other sizes as well.  

 

Junior items need to have JR after the size to clarify where they belong.

 

0-18 mo. onesies, sleepers and gowns in may be placed in zip lock bags. This can help make more room on the racks! 

                  

Once you have sorted your clothes by size, start pairing together and hanging your items, making sure they are on the hanger the proper way: The hook of the hanger should face to the left if you are holding the garment straight out in front of you looking at it. It should look like a ?This makes for easier shopping and better sales. Also,

please make sure zippers, snaps and buttons are closed!     

  • You can then type your descriptions onto your tags add the   price, then print OR print off whole sheets of one price,     choose the price for your item and write in the description.    All tags have to have a description...include the brand   name!  This is a definite selling point!     

  • Location of tags on the clothing:

*Safety pin your tag onto your item on the upper right  part of your item as you are facing it. 

*If you are using a tagging gun please only tag your  items on the edge of the garment with the tag hanging

on the outside of your item.

*Attach pants behind the belt loop or just inside the pocket.

Tags must be visible at all times!

 If there is no tag, there is no sale.

  • If you need to change a price on your tag, you must make a new tag.  No cross-outs on tags will be accepted as we will not know if you or someone else changed it.  

                                     

  • Once you have your clothing tagged, group them according      to size/gender and rubber band/twist tie the hangers    together. This is a MUST!

   This will make for faster check-in time for you and others! 

   *For the Fall/Winter sale, please separate costumes from              other clothing.     

             

  • Shoes...there are several ways you can keep both shoes together and tag them...

Zip ties

TAG PRINTING TIPS:

  To avoid tagging frustrations, please open in Google Chrome Browser.

  This has resolved   printing issues   for consignors in the   past that have   encountered difficulties.

  **If you have further issues, please       call Hope at 573-535-8798

Current consignors: 

You will retain your previously issued consignor number (one number is allowed per consignor) for the time being…we are still looking into creating  a program that will possibly be instituted for future sales to expedite certain aspects of our side of the sale.

 We will notify you of any changes for future sales.

New consignors:

To become a consignor please go to the Consignor page, click on New Consignor button and follow the instructions.

Make sure your tags are secure.

Toys/Books/Equipment/Gaming 

The main thing here is that the tag is securely attached.

Equipment

  • You can safety pin the tag to the cloth part on strollers, car seats and bouncy chairs, etc. with a 1/4 inch or larger safety pin. 

  • Use clear 2" packaging tape to completely cover the tag on items that aren't pinned.  A good tip is to tape 2 tags on larger items, one visible and one not visible in the event a tag is lost...this ensures the selling of the item in the event one tag is lost.

Puzzles, Books and Games

  • Saran wrap is a great option!

For puzzles: (not the boxed ones) It keeps all the pieces in place to show that they are all there as well as the image.

For books: It is a great idea to combine books and this is a great way to do it without damaging them.  Another option is zip-loc bags.

Please make sure to include all the titles included on your tag. 

  • Double check to make sure all parts/pieces are present and note on the tag that the item is "Complete" or "has all parts". It is required that all items be complete.  Remember: would you want to purchase an item that was incomplete?

If there is no tag, there is no sale.           

                                         

Gaming

  • Prepare 2 tags - 1 for the case and 1 for the game which will be kept secured at check-out.

If there is no tag, there is no sale. 

General

  • Safety pins (1/4 inch and larger only), zip ties, packaging tape (just make sure it will not rip off something that is on the items thereby ruining it) are all viable options for securing the tags onto various items. Make sure the tag is safely attached to the inside of bags.  When using bags tape them shut.

  • Straight pins will not be accepted!

If there is no tag, there is no sale.

Pricing

Minimum Price: $2.00

  • Exception: individual books may be priced lower. 

 

Prices must be in $1.00 and $.50 increments

  • Use yourself as a pricing guideline. Ask yourself, "Would I pay this price for this item?

 

1/2 Price Saturday                  

All items are 1/2 price on Saturday!      

Don't want your items to go 1/2 price? 

Place a RED dot next to the price on the tag

In order to ensure the correct price:

  • Use permanent Red ink!

  • Large enough to see

  • Not on top of tape on the tag

  • Do not put the red dot anywhere on the tag except next to the price

The items will remain in the sale and be sold at full price.  

If these instructions are not followed we are not responsible for items sold at 1/2 price.

For further clarity please refer to the pictures and tag template samples...
