PREP & PRICING
HOW TO PREPARE YOUR ITEMS
- Gather your supplies, including cardstock paper for tags, safety pins, zip ties, hangers, and baggies.
- Make sure all clothing is clean and free of rips, tears, and stains. (This will save both you and us time at inspection.)
- Secure all buttons and zippers.
- Hang clothing with hangers facing left like a question mark. (?)
- When hanging SETS, secure items/hangers together with a rubber band.
- Use notched hangers for strapped items (tanks & dresses). NO pins, please.
- All bottoms must be hung by the waistband on a pant hanger. DO NOT use safety pins when hanging bottoms.
- 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.
- 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!
