PREP & PRICING

HOW TO PREPARE YOUR ITEMS

  1. Gather your supplies, including cardstock paper for tags, safety pins, zip ties, hangers, and baggies.
  2. Make sure all clothing is clean and free of rips, tears, and stains. (This will save both you and us time at inspection.)
  3. Secure all buttons and zippers.
  4. Hang clothing with hangers facing left like a question mark. (?)
    1. When hanging SETS, secure items/hangers together with a rubber band.
    2. Use notched hangers for strapped items (tanks & dresses). NO pins, please.
    3. All bottoms must be hung by the waistband on a pant hanger. DO NOT use safety pins when hanging bottoms. 
  5. Shoes may be brought in boxes, but will not be displayed with their box. Boxes will not be returned following the sale. DO NOT tie or tape your shoes together.
  6. Belts, scarves and hats will not require hangers.  They will be displayed on tables or hung on hooks.

HOW TO TAG YOUR ITEMS

  • Attach your tag to the front of each hanging garment. We prefer tags be located on the front top right of the item.
  • Some garments are too delicate to pin tags to the front. For those special garments or when using a tagging gun, we recommend attaching tags to a seam or inside label.
    • Tagging guns can be used in place of safety pins, please only tag in seams or in manufacturer's tags.
  • Tags must be securely attached to shoes packing tape. Shoppers will be handling and trying them on. DO NOT tie your shoes together.
  • When tagging high-end handbags (priced > $75), please attach tag with MULTIPLE mini zip ties. 
  • Affix tags to other loose accessories using a tagging gun, ribbon or safety pins.
  • Place jewelry in clear baggies and attach tag to inside of bag. Tape top of baggie to secure items.

HOW TO PRICE YOUR ITEMS (AND MAKE MORE MONEY!)

  • Price to sell! Consignors with competitive prices earn more money and take less home. View our Ivory Pricing Guide for help.
    • 50% to 75% off the retail price is a good rule-of-thumb
    • Ask yourself ... "What would I pay at a consignment sale?"
  • Price your items ½ off for the discount day. Half the money is better than no money!
