What To Sell and How To Tag

1. CLOTHING: We accept clothes for babies and children (preemie up to children’s size 16, including Junior sizes), maternity and nursing clothes in good condition. We also accept costumes, sport and scout uniforms, dance, gymnastics and karate outfits. We cannot accept items with stains, holes, overly worn, or with missing parts. Try to get stains out (stain pen) and fix zippers etc, so you can increase the chances these items will sell.

For the spring/summer sales we will accept only spring/summer clothes and for the fall/winter sales we will accept only fall/winter clothing. (For the Longview sale, you can bring any season to the sale). Here are some guidelines:

Fall/Winter Sales: We will not accept: bathing suits, sleeveless shirts, shorts, and obvious summer skirts and dresses, spring sweaters, Hawaiian shirts, flip-flops. We will still accept: short-sleeved t-shirts.

Spring/Summer Sale: We will not accept: winter coats, snow suits, heavy sweaters, flannel shirts, corduroys, and anything with a holiday or winter print (snowflakes, Christmas, Halloween). We will still accept: pants, jeans, light sweaters, sweatshirts, long sleeve shirts, and play costumes (like pirates and princesses, but not costumes that you would only wear on Halloween).

Hanging and Tagging Clothing: Check out the How To Hang and Tag Clothing Video first. Please hang clothes on plastic hangers (see Tagging Tips for hanger sources). Face hanger to the left like a question mark (?), as shown in the picture below. Please attach your tag under the armpit where all the seams come together.  This way all the tags are in one location for easy viewing for shoppers (and sorters).  You can attach your price tag to the garment tag if the preferred option doesn’t work for some reason or damages the item.  You can attach the tag to the inside seam for short sleeve shirts (middle picture).  Pant hangers make it easy to hang pants. But if need to safety pin your pants to a wire hanger, be sure the pins are on the top diagonal part of the hanger instead of the straight bottom part. This will eliminate the item sliding back and forth on the hanger. You will have the opportunity to get replacement hangers at the end of the sale during pick up times.

Tagging Guns: A tagging gun is the BEST way to attach your tags to your garments (see Tagging Tips on locations to purchase a tagging gun). Be sure to place the needle through a seam in the armpit for a shirt or somewhere unnoticeable so you don’t damage the garment. For pants, you can place the needle under a belt loop or in the pocket. If you don’t want to buy a tagging gun, then safety pins are still acceptable. PLEASE DO NOT PLACE THE SAFETY PIN IN THE FRONT OF THE GARMENT BECAUSE IT WILL LEAVE A HOLE IN THE GARMENT.

Clothing Sets: For clothing sets, either attach them together on the same hanger (with the pants in the back) or rubber band 2 hangers together. Please describe all pieces/ parts on only one tag. Please do not attach more than one tag per set. You can also use a tagging gun to attach your items together.

Onsies, Underwear, Socks and Hats: Underwear, socks etc can be grouped by size and placed in a Ziploc with one tag. Place the tag on the inside of the bag. Use packing tape to seal the bag shut to prevent items from being taken out. Onsies should be grouped together in groups of 3 or more and hung on a hanger. Onsies in bags will not be allowed because the shoppers are not able to see the items. Hats will be hung on grid wall with clothespins, so they do not need to be in a Ziploc, unless you are grouping multiple hats.

Sort before you Drop Off: If there is one thing that saves time at the Drop Off process, is having your clothes in size and gender order. Thanks in advance!

2. SHOES: Check out the How To Tag Shoes Video first. The best way to attach the tag to the shoes is to punch a hole in the tag and then zip tie the shoes together. Put a piece of tape over the hole in the tag to reinforce it from falling off. Or you can tie the shoes together by the shoelaces or with yarn or ribbon or through the loop on the heel, with punching a hole in the tag first. If the shoes don’t have laces or openings, then place them a Ziploc bag and use packing tape to seal the bag shut. Do NOT put tape around shoes to keep them together. The tape will leave sticky residue. Do not tape the tag to the shoe box, or the items will get separated. You can use a rubber band to hold shoes together too.

3. TOYS, BOOKS, GAMES, PUZZLES, MOVIES ETC: Check out the How To Tag Books, Toys, Games, Puzzles Video First. Clear packing tape can be used to attach tags to most of these items. Secure loose toy parts (like balls) in a Ziploc taped at the top and then secure it to the toy with more packing tape. Zip ties are the strongest way to secure items together, so be creative. Also check out the How To Tag Multiple Items Video.

For books, you can use clear scotch tape instead of packing tape. Or if the tape might harm a book, place the book in a Ziploc bag and tape it shut at the top with the tag inside the bag. You can also put several books together in a Ziploc bag or wrap string around them to secure them together (like a gift). Just make sure the knots are tight so they don’t come undone.
For games and puzzles, you can use clear scotch tape instead of packing tape so that the box doesn’t rip. Puzzles can be put in a Ziploc bag or stretch wrap can be wrapped around it and then taped. Put a rubber band around game boxes so they stay together.

We accept the following stuffed animals in any quantity: popular character such as Elmo, Winnie the Pooh, Diego etc, Webkinz and Build-A-Bear.

4. BABY EQUIPMENT: You can bring strollers, bouncy chairs, walkers, bassinets, exersaucers, high chairs, booster seats, diaper pails, etc. If you have equipment that requires assembly, please bring the proper tools for assembly. You are responsible for putting the item together. This helps sell your item. If you have the original manual to the equipment, put the manual in a Ziploc bag and tape or safety pin it to the item. Items must have working batteries included. All baby equipment should be clean, complete and in good working condition.
Package smaller items such as bottles, utensils, bibs, and rattles into Ziploc bags. Breast pumps sell best as a set with all the accessories included.

5. FURNITURE: You can bring in changing tables, cribs, rocking chairs, toy chests, cradles, table and chair sets, bookshelves, desks, twin beds, toddler beds and bunk beds. Please bring the proper tools for assembly. You are responsible for putting them item together.

We only accept cribs that pass the new crib regulations as of June 28, 2011.

6. BEDDING AND BATH: Check out the How To Tag Bedding Video first. There will be some hanging racks available for larger blankets and towels if you would like to put them on a pant hanger. For smaller blankets, please roll them up and place a rubber band around it. Please do not bring queen sheets (unless for Parent Paradise), only crib, toddler, twin and double that are kid-like.

For multiple piece bedding sets, place all the pieces into a large clear plastic bag. You can even take a picture of all the items and face it out. If they cannot all fit in a bag, please see below for instructions on how to tag multiple piece items.

We will no longer accept any handmade blankets, crocheted or knitted. We will accept handmade fleece blankets with a popular character, theme, or sports team.

7. OUTDOOR FURNITURE: You can bring play houses, slides, swings, sand boxes, and tables, ride-on toys, bikes, bike trailers and wagons. Be sure to clean any outdoor item and make sure there is no dirt or water in it. Magic Erasers work well on these.

8. CAR SEATS: Car seats must not be expired or recalled or have be in a crash to be sold. When you drop off your items, there will be a form for you to sign verifying these items. Check the website National Highway and Transportation Safety Administration (http://www-odi.nhtsa.dot.gov/recalls/childseat.cfm) to see if it has been recalled. Please look at the tag found on the side of the seat for the manufacture date or the expiration date. If there is only a manufacture date, then the expiration is 5 years after that date. Some newer car seats have longer life of 6-8 years. These seats will have the expiration date listed on the tag. Please note the expiration date for the seat on your price tag. Also be very descriptive on how it looks…ie “Graco blue and yellow plaid car seat expires Oct 2012). If you have a car seat older than 5 years, you can recycle it for free at Legacy Emanuel Children’s Hospital (contact Tammy Franks at 503-413-4005 to schedule a drop off time) or bring it to any Fixx Auto Location. Or you can bring it to the sale and we will recycle it for you through the same program.

9. MULTIPLE PIECE SETS: For multiple piece sets, such as bedding ensembles, only put a tag with the price on the largest item. Put “#1 of x” on the bottom right of the tag. On the other pieces, attach an index card or masking tape with your consignor number and “2 of x” with no price.

10. TEEN/ADULT/HOME SALE ITEMS: For this secondary sale at the Clackamas/Portland location, you can bring in household items such as kitchen gear, decor, and even furniture! Mom items such as purses, re-gifts (items still in their packaging), craft items, and Dad items such as electric tools (10 years old or newer) and sporting equipment. There are separate times for drop off of these items, including being able to drop off when you pick up your unsold items from the kid/baby sale. Depending on the location of the Vancouver sale, we might have a Parent Paradise section during the main sale.  So these items can be dropped off during the original drop off time. Depending on space limitations, we might store them and display them the day after the opening shopping day. All items must be clean and in good working order.
