Tagging Instructions

The deadline for entering your items online will be MONDAY, April 1, at 6:00 AM- no exceptions.

The Basics

All items MUST be entered online and tagged with a barcoded tag.

You can begin item entry as soon as you register for the Fall/Winter sale or by going to the Consignor Homepage.

Once you login, click “Work with Consigned Inventory” then “Work with Consigned Items.”

Pricing Guidelines

There is a $2 minimum per item. You may combine 2-3 items to bring the value up to $2.

A typical guideline for pricing is 20-50% of the original retail price. Please carefully consider the condition of your item when pricing by thinking of how much YOU would be willing to pay for the item.

Printing Your Tags

You get to print your tags out yourself!

Please print on WHITE CARDSTOCK . This can be purchased at Wal-Mart or Staples for about $5-$7 for 150 sheets.

Our system prints 6 tags per 8.5 x 11 sheet of cardstock. It is important to use cardstock instead of regular paper because paper can tear easily and be separated from your item.

Prepping Your Items

Be sure to check the acceptable items tab before each sale.

Please remember that all clothing MUST be hung – including onesies.

The hanger should face left and should like a “2″ when you look at it.

Please hang pants/shorts at the top of the hanger (where it looks like an upside-down v) so they don’t slide on the hanger and are easier for customers to see.

You will not get your hangers back – they leave with the buyer.

DO NOT use Clothes Pins to attach clothes to hangers!

If you have a multiple piece set, please attach the hangers together at the top with rubber bands, ribbons or zip ties and safety pin through all items on the right or left side of the outfit to keep items from getting separated.

Shoes may be tied together using string, zip ties (can be purchased at Wal-Mart in hardware section), safety pins or ribbon. They can be placed in Ziploc bags but please be sure to attach the tag to the bag securely with clear packing tape. DO NOT leave tag loose in the bag as they will get lost easily.

Multiple piece toys, games, decor, etc. can be placed in a large Ziploc bag and taped closed with clear packing tape to help prevent it from being opened and separated during the event but still easily seen. Place tag on the bag with clear packing tape. Large Ziploc bags and Ziploc BIG BAGS can be purchased at Wal-Mart. Usually in the section with all size Ziploc bags or the aisle with storage items.

Please cover safety pins where you attached the tags and/or end of tagging gun tabs with duct tape or clear packing tape. This is not mandatory but will help protect your items from tag switching at the event.

Before bringing clothing to the event for your drop off shift, please have in order by SIZE and SEX (ex. all 3T boys clothing together, all 12-month girls’ clothing together, etc.) You can bind sizes together with rubber bands, ribbon, etc. This is VERY MUCH appreciated and helps us in decreasing your wait time at drop-off.

Tagging Your Clothing:
We suggest you use a tagging gun to tag your items. Using these guns reduces the risk of “tag switching” and does not leave holes in the shoulder of shirts, dresses, etc. If you are using safety pins to tag your items, please place the tags on the top right corner of the item (as you look at it). If you are using a tagging gun, please put the tag through the original tag of the item or under the right sleeve in the seam if there is no tag. DO NOT USE STRAIGHT PINS. For your convenience, we offer tagging guns for only $24!! This includes one gun and 1000 plastic barbs. You can email ashley@monkeybusinessok.com or call Ashley @ 580-320-3605.

Large Items:
You can use large packing tape (or something similar) to tag toys or other items that do not have a place to pin a tag. If you have any questions, I will be happy to help. Just give me a call or send me an email.

Blankets/towels/burp rags/sheets/linens in general:

These items need to be folded and tied together with ribbon, string or tape OR placed inside a clear bag such as a Ziploc or Ziploc BIG BAG.
