5. Pricing and Tagging

PRICING: You set your own prices. All items must be priced and tagged prior to delivery. No items under $2.00. Please round all prices off to the nearest half dollar.

TAGS: Use one 3” x 5” white index card or 1/4th sheet of card stock as your tag: write your consignor number in the upper left corner, then halfway down the card, write your consignor number again on the left side, list size in the middle section, add a brief description below the size, then list the price below the description (see illustration below). Clip the BOTTOM right corner of the tag if you do NOT want your items reduced to half price during Saturday’s half price sale. Tape tags with clear mailing tape on toys, equipment, shoe bags, etc. No masking tape, please.

CORRECT TAGGING IS VERY IMPORTANT! Incorrect tags will not be accepted. Examples of incorrect tags that will NOT be accepted: tags with barcodes, tags with additional information that is not listed on our example, tags with information written in the wrong place, tags written or printed on notebook or printer paper, tags that are smaller than an index card.

***NEW! PRINTABLE TAG TEMPLATES! Just print it out and fill in the blanks! You can print on 3×5 index cards or 8.5 x 11 card stock. (Remember to use card stock instead of printer paper!) DOWNLOAD HERE: 3×5 Index Card Template  OR 8.5×11 Cardstock Template

SIZING: Except for maternity clothing, please do not tag clothes “Small” “Medium” or “Large”.  All clothes must be tagged with a specific numerical size such as 2T, 4, or 8 otherwise they will be rejected. If the  manufacturer has tagged the item small, please estimate what numerical size is most appropriate. A note about Junior Items: be sure to mark the tag with the junior size (ex. size 0 or 2 instead of size 14/16).

CARDS MISSING DATA: If a customer would like to buy an item that does not have a price listed on the tag, the worker at the cash register will assign a reasonable price and sell the item. Likewise, if a customer would like to purchase an item that has no consignor number on the tag, We will sell the item and donate the proceeds to charity. Please double check that you give your consignor number and a price on all items.

CHARITY: If you would like to donate your unsold items, please put a “C” in red ink in the bottom LEFT handcorner of your tag, indicating the items goes to charity.

SAFETY PINS: Use a safety pin to secure the tag to the upper right side of the garment, hanger facing left as noted (like a question mark). Entire tag must be in view (i.e. not under the collar). Straight pins will NOT be accepted.
