How do I get ready for the sale?
Go through closets, check in the attic and look under the bed. Don't forget formal
wear, shoes, purses, scarves, games, movies and jewelry (NO Books).
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.)
Check to make sure items are free from stains and rips. 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 items 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 and secured together.
Tag your items. Use ½ of a 3x5 card cut vertically. Tags are safety pinned (no
straight pins or tiny safety pins) to the upper right hand side of the item as it faces
Tags on non-clothing items are usually taped on. Do NOT use scotch tape or masking
tape, they will not hold. If the material is delicate then pin the tag on the clothing
tag inside the clothes.
