Here are some guidelines to help as you prepare your items for the sale. Click here to see what is acceptable and not acceptable for the sale.

Supplies Needed

HANGERS – in order to protect your clothing items we only accept plastic hangers. Find plastic hangers at Wal-Mart, Target, Dollar Stores. Retail plastic hangers are acceptable too.

STRING TAGS – Avery White Marking Tags Strung (size 1.75 x 1.093 inches) are required on each item to affix our barcode labels to. You can find these at Wal-Mart, office supply stores, Rhea Lana Store (link) or large quantities may be purchased from Amazon.

You’ll also need re-sealable bags (for shoes, small toys, etc…), masking tape, scotch tape, sharpie, and safety pins. For large quantities of quality safety pins we recommend ordering from Cleaners Supply .

If you would like to print your barcodes at home you’ll need adhesive address labels size 1” X 2 5/8” (30 up). We recommend ordering from Amazon Here. Please note: all labels printed at home MUST be printed in color.

Clothing

The better they look, the better they sell! Please take time to wash and iron your clothes if necessary. Please check for stains, broken zippers, torn hemlines, etc. We will be double checking at the store and will not accept any item that is not in excellent condition. Use children's PLASTIC HANGERS (NO WIRE HANGERS) for sizes 10 and below. Use larger plastic hangers for sizes 12 and above.

No metal hangers will be accepted (not even coated wire hangers)! This makes your clothing look its best for shoppers and shopping more pleasant for everyone!

Please group items together so that they will equal a value of at least $3.00. They may be pinned together on a hanger.


All pants must be pinned to a hanger, not folded over, as they tend to end up on the floor.


Safety pin all sets and accessories securely together. With pants pinned to the back of the shirt. Both pieces need to be viewable without unpinning them.

Shoes

Please only bring your like-new shoes! 1. Please just zip tie the shoes together somehow if possible, if not Ziploc bag! 2. We ask that you put masking tape on the bottom of both shoes with your consignor number and price on them incase they are separated or lose their barcode. 3. Same goes with baby and toddler shoes, just zip tie them together if you can. If you can't then put them in a Ziploc bag with consignor number and price on the bag.

Puzzles

Please bag these or wrap with plastic wrap so that all the pieces stay together. Use tape to secure the plastic wrap and tape the string tag to the outside.

Loose Items

Bottles, bibs, rattles, socks, bows, etc group together appropriately in ziploc bags. Pin or tape the string tag to the ziploc bag. It also helps to write your consignor number and price on the ziploc with a Sharpee in case the tag comes off during the sale. Remember we cannot accept nipples for the bottles or sippy cups. Please dispose of them before checking in.

Toys, Furniture, Equipment

Must be clean and in working order (batteries included.) Small parts must be bagged and attached to the main part very securely. If parts get separated it will not sell. Games should be taped closed. Puzzles, books, videos and small toys should be grouped accordingly and put in ziploc bags. Secure with clear packing tape and pin tag to the ziploc bag. It is also good to write your consignor number and price on the ziploc bag with a Sharpee in case the tag comes off. Puzzles should be wrapped securely in clear Saran wrap to keep the pieces intact. TOYS NOT PACKAGED APPROPRIATELY WILL BE TURNED AWAY. Large Little Tikes Toys and Furniture are in high demand! When tagging large toys it is best to also attach a piece of masking tape to the toy with your consignor information. This will enable us to sell your toy even if the tag comes off! We sell 95% of Toys, Furniture and Baby Equipment! Toy recall information- Due to the high number of toy recalls during the past year, we will be inspecting toys very carefully. We reserve the right to pull any toy that we think might have been recalled. To help us, please do not bring any toys that have been subject to a recall. You may check the following website for current toy recalls: www.cpsc.gov/cpscpub/prerel/category/toy.html.

Car Seats

Your car seat must have been manufactured within the past five years and still have at least 1 year left before the expiration date. It must not be subject to recall or have been in an accident. You may check the following website for current recalls: www.carseat.org/Recalls/179NP.pdf All seat covers and straps must be thoroughly cleaned. You will be asked to sign a car seat waiver stating your car seat has all the pieces and is in excellent condition and not more than five years old. Car seats will be closely inspected for safety reasons.

May I bring recalled items?

No, we ask that you refer to the Consumer Product Safety Commission website and make sure your items have not been recalled. We care immensely about the safety of children! We also have recall books available for you to refer to while you are in the store.
