Preparing Your Items
After registering, you will print a bar coded tag for each item that you are selling. Attach the tag to the top right corner of the clothing item. Please use safety pins only...no straight pins or staples!
Hanging items with several pieces should be safety pinned together on a hanger, or if on separate hangers they should be rubber banded together. Use one tag only.
Hang ALL clothing on a hanger. This includes onesies, jeans, shorts, etc. The hanger should face left so that it looks like a question mark (?).
Wire hangers are recommended, but plastic hangers are accepted as well.
Bugaboo offers wire hangers AT COST to consignors. If you cannot gather enough hangers on your own, you are welcome to purchase from Bugaboo.
Hangers are available for pickup in Yorkville near Jewel. And exact address will be emailed to you upon receiving your request. You may pickup at your convenience. Payment may be made via paypal, check or cash.
Tip: Tagging guns are encouraged. You can buy a tagging gun with barbs off ebay for under $10.00 (including shipping). If you are a frequent consignor, it really is worth the money. No fiddling with safety pins.
If you do have a tagging gun, please tag through the clothing garments size tag only. Watch the video below. Do NOT tag through the fabric. If the item does not have a size tag, tag through the inside shoulder seam instead. This is the little fold of fabric inside the garment with stitching. If you use a tagging gun, you MUST use cardstock.
Attach tags to books using painters tape or masking tape. Never use packing tape or any clear tape! If you have a set of books that can be sold together, place them in a ziploc bag with a list of contents. Attach the tag to the outside of the bag and tape the bag shut.
Shoes should be tied together with string, ribbon or zip ties. (Zip ties can be found at Walmart (near the power cords) or Dollar Tree.
Do not tape the tag to your shoes. It is almost guaranteed the tag will fall off and be lost. Please pin the tag to the lace or the tie that you use to keep them together.
Infant shoes may be put in a clear ziploc bag, however the tag must be attached to the shoes inside the bag. Do not tape the bag shut. No shoe boxes please!
All Other Items
Tape the top of your tag to the item with clear packing tape. Use packing tape as any other tape will fall off easily. Please use painter's tape for books. If you do not have painter's tape, there will be some available at drop off for you to use.
Use ziploc bags for any items with small pieces. Tape the bag shut with packing tape. Tape the top of the tag to the outside of the bag.
*If your item is too large to carry around by a shopper, you will fill out a Large Item Claim Ticket at Drop Off and attach your tag to the bottom of the Large Item Claim Ticket. The Large Item Claim Ticket will then be zip tied (we provide the zip ties) to your item securely. This way the shopper can choose to buy your item without having to haul it around the sale while they shop. (You can just bring these tickets with you and we will attach them at the entrance of the building during Drop Off).
**Any high priced items will also need a Large Item Claim Ticket and to be securely packaged.
