Our PRICING GUIDE is available to help get you started and has tips on how to prepare items other than clothing. All items must be priced by the seller (unless you are using our Busy Mom Full Service option.) As a general rule, consider the original retail price -- whether you paid original or not -- and take around 75 % off. If it is a "boutique" item or a current brand that is highly desirable you can price a little higher. The same is true for items New with Tags.
Preparing Clothing Items -psst...this part is important!
INFANT CLOTHING and BASICS – Please see the pricing guide*****
Must be LIKE NEW Shoes need to be tied together when possible using string or zip ties. Please only bring your like-new shoes! Washing goes a long way, as well as using a magic eraser on soles. It works wonders on making them look new again! We ask that you write the SHOE SIZE on a bar code label and place your bar code inside EACH shoe (you can cut the barcode out of the new cardstock labels to make them smaller and tape with clear packaging tape or use the bar code label option to create the smaller sticker). You may also safety pin or tie a tag to a shoe lace or through the shoe eyelet. Ziploc bags are okay for infant sizes but not good for larger sizes that may need to be tried on.
TOYS, BOOKS, VIDEOS, FURNITURE, EQUIPMENT- See our Pricing Guide for more details
Group book sets together and tie with string in both directions. Make sure the books cannot slide through or come apart. Ziploc bags can also be used and sealed shut with packing tape. Individual books may be priced separately but remember the $2.00 minimum.
GAMES AND PUZZLES
Games and boxed puzzles should be COMPLETE and taped closed. If you use the standard tag, we ask that you use blue painters tape to attach the tag. Larger wooden-type puzzles that have no box should be wrapped securely in clear plastic wrap to keep the pieces intact. Saran kitchen wrap works if it is then secured with clear packing tape around it.
LARGE TOYS, INFANT GEAR AND FURNITURE
When tagging large toys or items such as bikes, ride on cars, slides, etc it is best to find an area that the tag can be taped on securely and then taped around the tag completely. NOTE: If you have any questions on how to label or package anything, we are always happy to help! We have seen most everything one way or another and know what works best. Feel free to text us at 540-525-1446 or thru Facebook Messenger.
