Item for Sale
The appearance of your
item is what will determine if it will sell and how much
someone will be willing to pay for it. Taking the time
to clean items will pay for itself in the end.
Place clothing items on hangers with the hanger hook facing
left when you are facing the garment. (So that the top
of the hanger looks like a question mark). Infant clothing
should be placed on children’s plastic hangers when possible
for better presentation. All other clothing and bedding
should be on wire hangers. Pin items to top of hanger
if they slide. Pin pants and skirts on the top part of
the hanger with two safety pins. Please use strong
safety pins to hang heavy pants and skirts. We do
not want you pins to pop and have the pins and your clothes
fall on the floor. Have all buttons, snaps, and zippers
closed to help with presentation. Sets tend to sell better,
so match things together if you can. Pin the back of sets
together so they do not become separated. Place price
tag on upper right side of garment with a silver safety
pin 1 inch or larger. (no small gold safety pins or straight
pins). Make sure the safety pins grabs the garment and
tag twice to prevent tearing.
all shoes. Place shoes side by side like they would be
in your closet wrap a rubber band around pair of shoes
to keep them together, then place price tag under rubber
band on the bottom of the shoes. Tape price tag to the
rubber band. Make sure that the price is visible.

Place small toys in Ziploc bags, taping the opening closed
with clear packing tape to prevent them from popping open.
The more coordinating toys you place in the bag the better
chance you have of it selling. Example: Large gallon bag
of army men with accessories. Please do not bring small
odd-end toys as they will be hard to sell and to keep
up with. Games and Puzzles should have all pieces and
should be in boxes closed and sealed with tape. Larger
toys with small pieces, place small pieces in a Ziploc
bag, seal seam with clear packing tape, and tape to larger
toy piece. Batteries should be installed in toys, to show
that they are in good working order. Attach price tag
with tape. If that is not feasible, punch a hole
in the price tag and attach it with a ribbon to a visible
part of the toy. Make sure it can be easily taken off
for our records when it sells.
Place bedding and blankets on wire hangers, securing with
safety pins or in large bedding plastic bags. Place Price
tag on upper right section with a large safety pin if
on a hanger or with packing tape if in a bag.
Price items to sell!
We suggest pricing at 1/4 to 1/3 of the original purchase
price depending on the condition and name brand of item.
Consider what you would be willing to pay for the item
if you were an objective customer. Only use even dollar
increments. (ie: $3.00, $4.00, etc.) No item should
be priced at less than $2.00. If you would not pay
at least $2.00 for an item, then it would not be appropriate
for this sale.
If you do not want
your item to be sold for half-price on the half-price
sales then, circle the price with a red pen. If you would
be willing to sell for a lower price then write the lower
price next to the circled price, also in red ink.
Remember when you price
to consider if you want to have to take an item back home
with you if you have over priced your items. It might
be better to sell an item for half-price than to not sell
it at all. We want this to be a very successful sale for
