TAGGING INSTRUCTIONS

For simplicity, gather all of your tagging supplies along with your items to be priced in one area.

You will need the following:

Hangers for clothing (we prefer wire)

Safety Pins (1″ or larger, small flimsy pins=dirty lost clothes on the sale floor)

Packing Tape (for attaching tags to toys & sealing bags, etc.)

Painters Tape (for attaching tags to puzzles, books, games, boxes)

Twine/Zip Ties

Magic Eraser (to clean up shoes and plastic), Iron, Sewing Kit

White Cardstock (for tags)

Printer & Ink (or access to one for tags)

  • (Remember, the better your clothing looks, the better it sells! Please take time to wash and iron your clothing. Check for stains, broken zippers, torn hemlines, etc. We will not accept any item that is not in excellent condition.

  • Pricing: Price to Sell!  A good rule of thumb is 1/4 to 1/3 of retail pricing.  It’s a great idea on higher ticket items to include the original price or even a photo of the item and price from web.  It’s always better to price competitively and sell most of your items at full price and by choosing discount, the remaining items are likely to sell on the last day. 

  • Ask yourself, “Would I buy these items at the price I am asking?  It’s true…you earn more by selling competitively!

  •  Remember, if you choose to donate your items, there are dozens of local charities benefitting the children in our community that are grateful!

  • Our computer system is easy to use, and allows you to enter items with a standard keyboard OR with voice entry! To enter your items, log in to your consignor portal using the consignor number and password you received upon registering. You will go from your homepage to “Work with Consigned Inventory”  Be sure to select the correct category for each clothing item.

  • Then enter each item description and the price you choose. The more detailed you describe your item, the better. If a tag falls off, your description is the only way to get your item sold. A tag that says, “Crewcuts chambray button-down shirt” is much more likely to be found on the sales floor than a tag that simply says, “Shirt.”

  • Sizing: If a clothing item is a range, (ex: 8-10), go with the smaller size. Numerical Sizing is ideal but if you need to use “S,” “M,” or “L” make sure that you CHOOSE YOUTH or JUNIOR and place them on the sales floor appropriately.

  • LIMITS:   Wee Trade accepts 100 Hangers per consignor number. If you have sets or multiple items on a hanger with one tag, that counts as 1;   15 Hanging Items per gender for sizes 0-18mo.;  10 pairs of shoes per gender, per consignor number; 200 TOTAL ITEMS per consignor number

  • Once you have entered your items, you will print them at home on WHITE CARDSTOCK or they can be emailed to a printer, such as Office Depot. Six tags will print on each piece of cardstock, which you will then cut and pin tags on each item. You can print tags any time until your scheduled drop-off time.

  • Attach tag with a safety pin to the upper right front of clothes when looking at the item. You can use a tagging gun but please ONLY TAG IN A SEAM on the right side of the clothing.

  • All clothing pieces are to be hung with the top of the hanger facing left (like a question mark shape.)

  • All pants must be pinned to the TOP of the hanger. Do not use pant hangers. Safety pin all sets and accessories securely together. Pants, skirts, and shorts must be pinned to the hanger NOT THE SHIRT. Both pieces need to be viewable without unpinning them.
