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, the Rhea Lana Store 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.
ACCEPTABLE ITEMS - At our FALL & WINTER EVENT: We will receive Fall and Winter clothing (Children's, Junior, and Maternity).
We WILL accept shorts and short sleeves since it will be HOT in Louisiana through October! We will not accept swimsuits, sundresses or clothing with Spring and Summer scenes.
Winter coats, holiday attire, costumes, backpacks, and sports attire/equipment are big sellers at our Fall & Winter Event!
CLOTHING PREPARATION -The better they look, the better they sell!
1) Check for stains, broken zippers, torn hemlines, missing buttons, etc.
We will be double checking at the store and will not receive any item that is not in excellent condition.
2) Wash and iron your clothes!
3) USE PLASTIC HANGERS ONLY!
Please, no wire hangers; we will kindly ask you to switch to plastic hangers if items are brought to Drop-Off on wire hangers! This makes shopping more pleasant for everyone. Clothes tend to fall off wire hangers and may be overlooked and not purchased if on the floor.
Note: Use children's plastic hangers for sizes 10 and below. Use larger plastic hangers for sizes 12 and above. You may also use wire COATED hangers as long as they are 'size appropriate'. Plastic hangers can be purchased at discount stores like Walmart, Target and dollar stores. Some retail clothing stores will gladly give you plastic hangers upon your request!
***When hanging your clothing items, make sure the hanger is facing to the left so it looks like a question mark - ?***
4) Group items together so that they will equal a value of at least $4.00.
They may be pinned together on one hanger.
5) Use larger safety pins to attach all pants to a hanger, ironed flat front.
Pants that are folded over on a hanger tend to end up on the floor.
6) All sets and accessories need to be pinned securely together, with pants hung on the back of the shirt; pin the waist of the pants to the shoulders of the shirt.
Both pieces need to be seen without unpinning them. If a shirt/pant set are on separate hangers, rubber band the hangers together.
7) When you are preparing and sorting your clothing items, sort them by gender and size. This will make your online entry process more organized AND will help streamline Consignor Check-In.
8) When tagging your clothing items, the string tag needs to be pinned on the LEFT shoulder (or right side when looking at the garment).You can loop the string tag through a belt loop on pants, jeans or shorts in order to save a safety pin!
We are not limiting baby, maternity, teen clothing or shoes. Each consignor number will hold 250 items.
Please only bring your like-new, seasonally appropriate clothing and shoes!
We will be accepting like-new shoes and winter boots. Please save all summer sandals and flip flops until our Spring & Summer Event.
Shoes are tricky to tag, so please follow these guidelines to insure shoes remain together:
1) Write your consignor number and price on masking tape, placing on bottom of both shoes.
2) Safety pin the price tag to a shoe lace or through the shoe eyelet.
3) Place both shoes (with attached price tag) inside ziploc bag and do not tape the bag shut OR you may secure them together with a ziptie (preferred).
We will accept the following items for our bedding section:
Crib size sheets
Toddler bed size sheets
We will not be able to accept:
Queen or King size sheets
Crib bumpers (including mesh bumpers)
Comforters of any size
Sheets can be placed on a hanger and use a safety pin to secure it.
Use a safety pin to attach the string tag to the sheet.
Please roll sleeping bags up neatly and pin the string tag to the sleeping bag.
Hang and pin blankets over hangers so that shoppers can see them. If they are small receiving blankets, group 2 or 3 together on a hanger and pin them together. Safety pin the tag to the blankets. Please do not stick the barcode label to the item or ziptop bag...only adhere it to a white string tag. It is also recommended to write your Consignor ID and price on the ziptop bag with a Sharpee in the case the tag comes off.
Items sell better when they are on a hanger rather than in a bag. Items such as bibs, burp cloths, cloth diapers and onesies should be placed on a hanger and secured with a safety pin. Also use a safety pin to attach the string tag to the item.
Bottles, rattles, socks, bows, etc group together appropriately in ziploc bags. Attach the string tag to the inside of the bag using a small piece of tape on the top part of the string tag.
Please do not tape your bags closed until after they have gone through consignor check in. It also helps to write your consignor number and info on the plastic bag with a permanent marker in case the tag comes off during the sale.
We will not accept used nipples or pacifiers - only new, in the package of these items.
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, the item will not sell.
Books and DVD's do not need to be put in ziplock bags. If are you grouping them you can place them in a ziplock bag.
Attach the string tag to the inside of the bag using a small piece of tape at the top of the string tag. It is also good to write your consignor number and info on the ziploc bag with a Sharpie in case the tag comes off.
DVD's and video games should not be taped shut until after they have been through consignor check in.
Puzzles should be wrapped securely in clear Saran wrap to keep the pieces intact.
All toys and games MUST include ALL pieces. TOYS NOT PACKAGED APPROPRIATELY WILL BE TURNED AWAY.
We are only able to accept stuffed animals that are battery operated or a name brand (Such as Disney, Build-a-Bear, etc).
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!
