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 your clothes look, the better they sell! Please take time to wash and iron (if necessary) your clothes.

We will be checking your items at the store and will not receive any item that is not in excellent condition.

Use small PLASTIC hangers for sizes 10 and below. Use larger PLASTIC hangers for sizes 12 and above. You may use the hangers that came on your clothes originally. Plastic hangers can be purchased at discount stores. Old Navy and Kohl's will give you their extra hangers for free!


Please group items together so that they will equal a value of at least $3.00. Shoppers like to find outfits, so please bundle yours together. Hang the shirt and then pin the waist of the pants (to the back on the shirt) at the shoulders of the shirt.

All pants must be clipped or pinned to a hanger, not folded over.

Shoes

Please only bring your like-new shoes! We will not accept shoes with scuffed toes, dirty, or discolored soles.

1. Put your consignor number and price on masking tape on the inside of the shoes, this will help if they get separated.

2. Safety pin the price tag to a shoe lace or through the shoe eyelet.

Bedding

Due to Texas law, we will no longer accept used bedding. We will sell sheets and blankets, but no mattresses, comforters, crib bumpers, or any other "filled" bedding product.

Blankets

Hang and pin blankets over hangers so that shoppers can see them. If they are small receiving blankets, group 2 or 3 together in a ziploc bag and seal the bag with clear plastic tape. Safety pin tag to ziploc bag.

Loose Items

Bottles, bibs, rattles, socks, bows, etc group together appropriately in ziploc bags. Seal with clear packing tape. Pin tag to ziploc bag. It also helps to write your consignor number and info on the ziploc with a Sharpie in case the tag comes off during the sale.

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 info on the ziploc bag with a Sharpie 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.

We will only accept Beanie Baby, Disney or other name brand stuffed animals in like new condition.

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. Also for a helpful resource made available by the Consumer Product Safety Commission Click here.

Car Seats

Your car seat must have been manufactured within the past five years. It must not be subject to recall or have been in an accident.

Cribs

Due to the thousands of recalls and the crib regulations being raised, we will not sell any crib manufactured before December 2010. Contact the manufacturer of your crib to find out if it is recalled. Most companies will send you a repair kit or give you instructions on how to return your crib for a refund.
