  • Print  tags on WHITE cardstock. 
  • IMPORTANT NOTE: If the bar code on the tag prints out slightly blurred, it will not scan properly and that really slows down our check-out process. You will know by looking at it.  It needs to be clean and crisp. Please try cleaning the printer (using the printer's maintenance routine) before printing tags.  Printing one tag to test it is always a good idea to check quality and the correct sizing.
  • Safety-pin tags to costumes and hang costumes on hangers.   Please do not use a tagging gun to attach tags.
  • Securely tape tags to any non-clothing items that cannot be pinned.
  • Make sure tags are as flat as possible to make them easier to scan. Using clear packing tape can help with this.
  • Affix tags to non-clothing items so that you are not blocking any essential parts that a buyer should be able to see.

Cleaning Tips

Use Magic Eraser to get rid of crayon, scuff marks, permanent marker, pen marks, & paint rubs.

Use Rubbing Alcohol or Goo Gone to remove sticky stuff.

Use a toothpick to get into corners or clean edges.

Even if it looks clean - clean it anyway!

Preparing Items


Use the checklist to make sure you are

preparing items correctly.

“He shall feed His flock like a shepherd: He shall gather the lambs with His arm and carry them in His bosom, and shall gently lead those that are with young. “ 
(Isaiah 40:11)
  • Place accessories in a Ziplock bag and attach over the hanger. Pin the bag to the clothing. Make sure your description includes the accessories and put an additional note in the accessory bag with your consignor number and the item number in case this bag gets separated from the piece of clothing.
  • Attach tags using safety pins  - no staples or straight pins and no tagging guns. Safety pins should go through the tag two times in a horizontal manner.
  • Pinned tags must be placed on the upper right side (as you are looking at it) of the garment. NOT ON THE SHOULDER.
  • It is BEST to not put books or DVDs in bags. Put the tags directly on the book or DVD. Tape the tag to the back of the book or DVD if it will not harm the cover.
  • Books often have a UPC code on the back - it is OK (and preferred) to cover the original UPC code with your tag if you are placing your tag anywhere close to the original UPC code.
  • If selling a group of books or DVDs, put them in a clean plastic bag and then tape the tag to the plastic bag. Make sure your description has the number in the bag along with the titles. Multiple books and DVDs tend to get separated from each other and we have no way of getting them in the correct spot.  PLEASE SNIP A SMALL CORNER OFF OF THE BAG TO RELEASE THE AIR.
  • Wide clear packaging/shipping tape is preferred. Blue painter's tape is not allowed - it comes off too easily.
  • DO NOT TAPE DVDS or bags shut. We have to check every title and every item in bags.

Tagging – Clothes/Costumes

  • A general rule-of-thumb is to price items 25-35% of original cost, depending on condition and brand.
  • Consider what you would be willing to pay for the item at a similar sale.
  • Check out Craigslist or EBay to see what similar items are selling for.
  • If you have several similar small items, group and sell them together.
  • If in doubt, price lower.  If you price too high, the item won't sell.
  • When entering your items, the more detail in your description, 
  • the better.  This will help the buyers and also help us to locate an item or re-tag in case a tag falls off. Include Brand name first in the description even if you have to abbreviate it. (Example: CP 2pc blue/green pants/shirt w/ trucks) CP means Children's Place
  • DO NOT make a general description (i.e. shirt or puzzle). It is impossible to unite a lost tag with this description.
  • Also choose to donate any unsold items - it gives you satisfaction in knowing your items are going to a good cause AND there's less to pick up!  THERE IS NO DISCOUNT DAY FOR THE TOY SALE THOUGH!
  • The better it looks, the better it sells, the more you can charge!
  • Clean, Clean, Clean!  Clean the inside, outside, topside, underside, all sides!
  •  All battery operated items must have working batteries.
  • Any plastic bags used to contain items should also be clean and able to zip close! DO NOT TAPE BAGS OR BOXES SHUT AS WE HAVE TO OPEN EACH ITEM. 
  • ALL INVENTORY MUST BE IN THE SYSTEM NO LATER THAN MARCH 3rd AT 10PM. Do not wait until the last minute to enter your inventory. You can enter a few items at a time and come back to finish later if needed. The system will automatically turn off on MARCH 3RD at 10pm. You can still print tags after that but no inventory can be changed or added after that. Failure to enter inventory by then will result in being placed on the prohibited to sell list for future sales. We have a waiting list each time and by not entering inventory, you take a spot that someone else could have used it. Your registration fee is also nonrefundable.

Tagging - Other items

You can price your items as you see fit, but here are some tips...

5944 Fulton Drive NW
Canton, Ohio 44718​



Teenage Girl clothing should be sized with JUNIOR sizes and Teenage Boy Clothing should be sized with YOUNG MEN sizes.

  • Most other items can have the tag taped to the item using clear tape (clear wide shipping/packaging tape is best). Blue painter's tape is not allowed - it comes off too easily.
  • If an item has many parts, print only ONE tag for the item but list how many parts in the description. Then attach your own note that has your consignor number, the item number listed on the original tag, and which number part it is (2 of 6, 3 of 6, etc). DO NOT put a price on these additional tags.
  • DO NOT bring shoes in boxes, we will throw the boxes out.
  • Plan to set up cribs/pack-n-plays, etc. The more the buyers see, the better the items sell.
