Children’s Clothing:
Tags on Cloths
  • All clothing should be hung. When looking at the front of the hung garment, the hanger hook should be facing towards the left like a question mark.
  • All pants must be hung with safety pins to the top of the hanger. The pants should be in front on the hanger. Do not put the hanger inside the pants. The pants should be spread tight so that they do not slide to the bottom of the hanger. Please tilt your hanger a few times. If the pants can slide to the bottom of the hanger, they need to be spread tighter to keep them secure to the top of the hanger. You may use “pants” hangers as long as the pants remain secure with a gentle tug.
  • All garments 12 months and older must be on adult size hangers. We will not have hangers on hand, so please hang correctly at home.
  • Attach your tag to the left shoulder (your right) of all hanging items.
  • Use safety pins to attach the tag. Tagging guns are acceptable if you use a fine tip needle. If attaching the tag with a tagging gun, please attach the tag to either the garment’s seam or the garment’s tag so that the garment is not damaged.
  • Make sure ALL buttons, snaps, and zippers are fastened before coming to inspection.
  • All children’s clothing must be sized in number sizes. S, M, or L will not be accepted. We do not accept men’s clothing. Please do not tag men’s clothing as boy’s sizes. They will not be accepted or will be pulled during the sale and not be eligible to be sold.
  • Make sure all clothing is free of ALL stains, tears or too much wear. Clothing must also be current styles. These items will not be accepted and will cause the inspection process to take longer for everyone.
  • Onesies need to be hung on hangers. If you are selling multiple onesies as a set, you will need to safety pin the shoulders to the top of the hanger. This will allow the inspector and buyer to be able to look at all the items. Do not place the onesies in a bag.


Junior's Sizes:
  • Jr. Sizes are for girl’s junior sizes only. We only accept boys clothing up to size 18 and do not accept men’s clothing

Books:
  • All books must be in excellent condition.
  • Use the category for the book that you wish us to put the book under. Example: If you tag an infant book as “Book-Teen”, then the book will be placed in the “teen” section and most likely will not sell. We also have thousands of books and do not have time to sort the books into the correction section for you. Please help us with this task.
  • Use masking or scotch tape to attach the tag. Do not use packing tape that can damage the book. Please tape all 4 sides of the tag. Tags that are not taped on all 4 sides come off very easily, and we will not be able to sell the book without the tag.
