How do I get ready for the sale?
Go through closets, under the bed, toy boxes and bookshelves. Gather items that the
kids no longer enjoy, don't play with, can't wear or don't want to wear. Don't forget bath
toys, bottles, cups, character dishes, kids linens, bikes, skates, pool items, riding toys.
Clothes must be hung on hangers with the item facing you and the hanger in the shape of a
question mark (?). Clothes that are in danger of falling off must be safety pinned securely.
(No straight pins or tiny safety pins.)
Infant items can be sealed in zip style bags with the tag taped on the outside. All bags should
be sealed securely (taped shut). Toys must have all parts secured together. On large plastic items,
use excessive clear packing tape.
Check to make sure items are free from stains, rips or smells. Sunlight provides the best light to
check for stains. Make sure all zippers, snaps, buttons, etc. work. Items sell better when they look
better. Wrinkles don't make clothes look good!
Package your items. Secure all items together that are being sold together. If you
package 3 books in a zip style bag to sell for one price, zip it and then tape it tightly.
Make sure all games, toys or multi-piece items are complete. Incomplete sets cannot be sold
or must be identified on the tag as a partial set and priced accordingly.
Electronic Tagging: Only Electronic tags are allowed.
Please use white or light colored card stock. Use a laser or photo quality inkjet printer.
Do NOT use a dot matrix printer.
Price your items. Ask yourself honestly, "What would I pay for this?"
Good items in "Great Condition" can ask 30-50% of retail.
Sort your clothing. First by gender (for Kidsignments) and then by sizes
before bringing them to drop off. Items must be pre-sorted.
Car seats, helmets, drop-down side cribs and recalled items CANNOT be sold!
Tell your friends and family. Your verbal recommendation is the best advertising
possible. Don't forget to shop. The more buyers we have, the more we sell!
Pick up all unsold items and your check at the designated time after the sale.
