Clothing

GATHER:
Newborn through size 20 (Justice for Girls has size 18 & 20),

Juniors (Names brands ie Abercrombie, Hollister, Roxy, American Eagle, Nike, Volcom, Burton preferred, NO LIMIT to how many items),

Maternity sizes (NO LIMIT to the number of maternity clothing items per consignor).

Our Fall Sale is fall & winter clothing only (what your child would wear between September-March). Be picky.

Look at your clothing items as if you were going to purchase them.

No stained or damaged items will be accepted. 

Any items that look like "mom's" clothes will be rejected at inspection.

Freshly clean your clothing items.

Replace missing buttons, sew loose hems and seams, and clip loose threads.

Button all buttons, snap all snaps, zip all zippers before you arrive at drop off. This will ensure that there are no defects in the clothing. The newer the item looks (and the better it smells), the better it will sell. Presentation SELLS. 

Iron or steam if necessary.

PACKAGE & HANG
Hangers - Please hang clothes so the hanger hook points to the left (like a question mark “?”).  Hang size 0-6 clothing on child-size hangers and sizes 7-20 and maternity clothing on adult-size hangers. Clothing that falls off the hanger onto the floor does not sell well. Old Navy and many outlet stores are great places to get free hangers (they throw away hangers daily!) and WalMart & Target sells child-size plastic tube hangers at a great price.  Clothing Sets - Sets tend to sell better (under size 6) so match things up if you can. All garments should be hung with the hanger hook pointing left (hanger should resemble a question mark when looking at the front of item).

Safety pin to attach clothing sets securely with bottom garment hung on the backside of the shirt, so both pieces can be viewed without separating them. 

Pants/Shorts - Pant-clip hangers are great but if you use a standard hanger, simply use a good quality safety pin to attach pants to the top part of the hanger so the garment will not slide. Onesies, socks, tights, hats and infant mittens need to be in a clear zip-lock bag (you may group multiple items in one bag). Label your tag well so that customers know if the items are short-sleeve onesies or long-sleeve onesies.


PRICE:  Hanging Clothing - Put outfits/set together to price for at about $3.00; Start at $3 for basic, generic brand 0-24mo outfit. Add $1 each for larger size, name brand, formal, and heavy/winter. 

Non-hanging Clothing - Put sets together to price for at least $3.00, but okay to price for less (i.e., 6 pair of socks for $1.50).  And it is ok to price higher. 

See Pricing Guideline.

TAGClothing on Hangers - Attach tag with a tagging gun or quality safety pin to the label of shirt or upper right front of pants. Insert the gun in a label or inside seam NOT through part of the clothing (to avoid making a hole or tear in the clothing). Also, pull on the tag to make sure it is properly secured and will not come off easily. Please make sure consignor tags are pulled out of the clothing so they are easily visible to the customers. 

Non-Hanging Clothing - Please use tagging gun or safety pins to attach tags to onesies, socks, tights, infant mittens, and accessories. Be sure to also attach multiple pieces together. Then put these items into clear zip-lock bags. Please do not tape bags closed - shoppers want to feel and inspect items before purchasing. (link to tagging video)

Drawstring Guidelines & Safety

Infant Items

GATHER: Nursing covers & pillows, feeding items, monitors, safety items, diapering & toileting items, rattles, and more.

Please check for safety recalls on all items that you consign.

PACKAGE:  If item has multiple pieces use packaging tape, tagging gun, safety pins or clear self-seal bags to keep items attached together and clearly visible to shoppers.

Batteries must be included, if applicable.  If your item is pulled for lack of batteries, your account will be charged $1 per battery.

PRICE:  Price 50% - 75% off retail. Items in great condition tend to sell very well.
Tag:  Attach JBF tag directly to item or clear self-seal bag with clear packaging tape or hole-punch JBF tag and tie it to item.

Bags & Baby Carriers


GATHER: Diaper bags, infant carriers, backpacks, and purses are great consignment items. Please inspect all items carefully to make sure items have not been recalled, stained, damaged or are missing pieces. 

We do accept breast pumps; please be aware that many people are getting them for free now through insurance, so price accordingly, if you want them to sell. Pump accessories are okay to sell.


PACKAGE:  Please zip-tie items to an adult-size hanger.

If you would like to place high-priced items (over $20) in our High Value Cabinet near Checkout, please see a volunteer at Drop Off for assistance. These items must be officially “CHECKED IN” by a volunteer


PRICE:  Price 50% - 75% off retail. Items in great condition tend to sell very well.

Clean all toys and baby equipment thoroughly.  

Test to make sure that toys and equipment are working properly.

Battery operated toys must include working batteries (these can be purchased inexpensively at local discount stores). If we pull an item and have to put batteries in, consignor will be charged $1 per battery needed.
PACKAGING:  Keeping tags and multiple items attached is essential for your items to sell. Bag all small parts belonging to toys/equipment in self-seal bags and tape the bag shut with clear packing tape. Fasten the bag securely to the item with ribbon, tape, or zip ties.

Shoes

Make sure that shoes are clean, clean, clean! We will be VERY selective with shoes during Consignor Drop Off & Inspection.

Shoes must be current season (Fall = September thru March; Spring = April thru September).

PACKAGE: Fasten shoes together with zip ties. For infant shoes or small shoes without laces, you may put the shoes in a clear zip-lock bag. We prefer no shoe boxes. However, if shoes are in the box, please remove the lid, secure it to the bottom of the box, and secure the shoes to the box (closed boxes do not sell well).

PRICE: Shoes must be in good condition and should start at $3.00 for infant/toddler; Add $1 each for larger size, name brand, or heavy/winter.

TAG: Punch a hole in the top of your tag and attach the tag to the shoes with the ribbon, string, or zip tie. For infant shoes in a clear zip-lock bag, put the tag inside the bag and tape the bag shut with clear packing tape.

Bedding, Blankets& Textiles

Bedding sizes accepted are bassinet through FULL/DOUBLE only.

Please be selective when selling bedding, blankets, receiving blankets, burp cloths, and towels.

New and barely used items sell best.

Check carefully for stains; shoppers get very disappointed if they find a stain in a bundled blanket once they get home.

PACKAGE:  Put bedding/crib/bedroom sets together in original packaging or in giant clear plastic bags. Arrange bedding sets inside bag so that shoppers can see all of the items as well as the design/pattern. Secure the bag so that items do not get separated. Bundle blankets, cloths, and towels with ribbon or string like a package (be sure multiple pieces cannot be separated). You can also fold and safety pin to hold together.

PRICE:  Price to sell! Shoppers are less likely to purchase these items used, so prices have to be low. Try to price 75% - 90% off retail.

TAG:  If bedding is in a plastic bag, attach tag securely with packaging tape to the inside of the bag and tape the bag shut (bedding set prices vary widely and securing tags inside bags prevents tag switching).

If bedding/blankets are bundled with string, attach tag directly to blanket and tuck it under the ribbon/string so that it does not easily get pulled off when shifting around during the sale.

Books, Games, DVDs, Arts & Crafts

Tie sets of books together with ribbon/string.

Be sure that parts/games to video game systems (such as Vtech) cannot be separated or switched out at the sale.  Video games can be in a locked cabinet near checkout to prevent theft.

PRICE:  Prices can range from $.50 to $50 in this category, depending on the item. Price to sell especially for books & DVDs as there are always lots to choose from at the sale.
