The *Golden Rule* of consigning is – Sell quality items at a fair price, just as you would want to buy for yourself! This is a win/win for all of us!! No Thank-You’s – We regret that we may not be able to accept every item that you bring in. Please do not take this personally. When we accept items we must take into consideration the needs of our clients and inventory selection. Our volunteers have been instructed at drop off to be very selective with the items they allow to be sold. We reserve the right to pull any item off the sales floor that we find does not match the quality standard that is required. Sometimes under our lights at check in we can see spots on a garment that a “soft home light” can not see. Our shoppers are interested in QUALITY not quantity.

TAGGING Savvy Sister Tagging Tips -
(below are some images of correct ways to hang and tag your items)
Use card stock only for tagging
*Silver safety pins – no small gold or straight pins allowed *Price your items at 25% to 33% of retail *Outfits sell better than separates *Seal Ziploc bags with clear packing tape *Clothes must be hung so that the hangers look like a question mark (?)
Wire or plastic hangers are accepted. Using card stock
paper, pin the tag to the top right hand side of the
garment - as you are looking at it.
***When it is 2 pcs, pin the waist of the bottoms
to the shirt at the top of the hanger. When including
an accessory, put it in a ziploc bag and seal with clear
packing tape. Pin the white cardstock tag thru the
bag and onto the garment in the upper right hand
side – as you are looking at it.
When hanging bottoms, pin the item at the waist and
attach the top of the hanger as shown. Use
card stock and attach the tag at the waist.
When you have a group of accessories, toys, etc., put
in the appropriate sized ziploc bag and seal with clear
packing tape. Attach the tag on the outside of the bag
with the same clear packing tape.
