Tagging - Other items
ALL TYPES OF CLOTHING NEEDS HUNG ON HANGERS!
DO NOT HANG BLANKETS, SWADDLERS, OR SLEEP SACKS. THEY MUST BE IN BAGS.
Descriptions created are for office use to reunite a lost tag with an item. They are not for the buyer so please DO NOT say: NEW w/ tags, Only worn twice, etc. and do not have a size in the description line.
Descriptions need BRAND, COLOR, ITEM - for example: Nike Blue shorts w/ gray stripe or Easton black football cleats or 3 Judy Moody Books (Stink/Water/Grade)
Use the checklist to make sure you are preparing items correctly.
