Price to sell. Consider what YOU would pay for the item. Customers are looking for bargains. Avoid sentimental pricing.

As a general rule, items sell for about 25-30% of current retail price. Clean, excellent condition, brand name items command higher prices. Infant clothing should be priced lower due to the volume we receive. If possible, create sets and package same type items together (coordinating clothes, socks hair accessories, and onesies, bottles blankets, towels, books ,etc.) Pin these together or put in plastic bags and make ONE tag for the set. Note on the tag that the item is a set of 3, etc. This will save time and create a higher value.

Items to be sold must be dropped off at Christ Church at either of the following times: Thursday, March 8 from 7:30pm to 9:30pm,br /> Friday, March 9 from 9:00am to 12:00 noon

We will NOT accept items earlier or later than the stated times.

Bundle same gender/same size items together with rubber bands, twisties or string.  Also, separate long items (jeans, pants, dresses, etc.) from short items (shirts, skirts, etc.) as we have different types of racks for each.  If your items are not correctly bundled, they will not be accepted until this is done.

Consignors must check-in, verify their address and agree to the Consignor Agreement prior to dropping off their items.

We will be doing tag and quality inspections at check-in.  Be prepared to show us a few of your tags. 

Consignors must hang their clothes on the appropriate labeled racks. 

Unsold items that were marked for return must be picked up on Saturday, March 10, 2018 between 5:30 and 6:30pm.

It is the consignor’s responsibility to check all locations for their unsold items.

Tagging/Preparing Items

All items must be tagged using our online tagging system. No exceptions.

• Instructions will be available when you access the tagging program.

• Tags must be printed on card stock – white, pastel, bright or neon colors work best.   Please do not use dark colors as they are hard to read.  Paper tags will not be accepted.

• Tags should be securely attached to clothing with a tagging gun or safety pinned to the inside label or along a seam to avoid putting a hole in the item.  Tags should be pulled out of the clothing so they are visible to customers.  See example for location.  If you are selling multiple pieces together (shirt & pants, etc), safety pin both items together and place one tag on the entire set.

• Tags should be securely attached with clear tape to books, toys, plastic bags, furniture, etc.

• Shoes should be fastened together with string, zip ties, ribbon or placed in plastic bags to avoid being separated. 

• Small items or items with multiple pieces should be placed in plastic bags and the tag secured with tape to the outside of the bag.  Tape/staple all bags closed.

• Larger items with small pieces should be placed in plastic bags, taped/stapled closed and securely attached to the large item – only make one consignor tag for the set.  It is helpful to write a description on an index card and attach to the plastic bag that these items go with give description of larger item in case the items become separated.

• ALL clothing must be on wire or thin hangers – do not use thick tubular hangers.  Consignors must provide their own hangers.  Any clothing items not on hangers will not be accepted.

• Pants, jeans and skirts should be attached to the hanger using safety pins.  Please use the top part of the hanger so the item does not slide around. The hanger hook should be facing to the left.

• No straight pins or staples allowed.
