Supplies & Resources

Gather hangers (plastic preferred but wire accepted), tape (clear packing, painter's tape and Scotch tapes), Ziploc bags, safety pins, tagging gun & barbs, zip ties, rubber bands, ribbon, etc. and watch the How to Tag video series before you start tagging.

Inspect Your Items

Follow the 3 C's Rule - Clean, Current, Complete. Ask yourself, is your item clean and without stains or damage, of current style, and complete with no missing parts or flaws? Inspecting clothes for stains works best under unnatural lighting esp fluorescent lights as natural lighting tends to hide stains. We will not accept any stains or damage, no matter how small! Smell your items as well - strong smoke or musty smells from being stored too long will not be accepted. You will need to launder your items before bringing them in.

Check for Recalls

Check out the Safety & Recalls Tool below for a list of recalled items and a Recall Finder link. If your items is listed as recalled, please check to see what is needed to rectify the recall in advance so your item can be sold at the event. Oftentimes, you just need to contact the manufacturer for the Repair Kit. We will not accept any recalled items for sale without the repair kits included - JBF is committed to safety.

In Working Order?

Check to make sure ALL electronics and toys are working properly. Battery-operated items MUST include working batteries, which can be purchased inexpensively at your local Dollar Store, so that Shoppers can be assured that the item works. We will be inspecting to make sure all battery-operated toys have working batteries during Drop-off so please pack these items together so they are easy to find. Items without batteries will not be able to be included in the sale.

Grouping Items

Place multiple items such as toys, rattles, bottles, etc. or small parts/accessories belonging to an item (such as furniture of a doll house or socks/headbands that match an outfit) into a Ziploc bag and tape the opening shut. Fasten the bag securely to the item with clear packing tape, zip ties or ribbon. If all items will not fit into one bag, you may use multiple Ziploc bags then attach them all together with zip ties or ribbon. You can include a duplicate tag in each bag just in case they become separated so they can be matched with their item again.

Toys such as games/puzzles must include ALL parts.

Similarly sized items such as books, games, DVDs, etc. can also be grouped together using ribbon, yarn or string.

Hanging Items

Clothes, bags, blankets, slings and carriers sell best when hung on a hanger for Shoppers to see more easily. The hanger should look like a "?" when viewing these items from the front.

TIP: No need to use pant hangers for bottoms as you can either ziptie, safety pin or use a tagging gun to hang pants on the shoulder part of a shirt hanger. See examples here.

Pricing & Creating Tags

When typing the description of your item, make sure to include the brand name, color/pattern, type of item and number of pieces. This will make it easier for us to match the item to the tag description if they should become separated. For Example: 2pc Gymboree Blue SS T-shirt with Gymboree White/Blue Plaid Shorts.

There are no minimum requirements for pricing an item. However, based on market research, we do RECOMMEND that you group smaller valued items together so that the total tagged price can be at least $3 in order to maximize your time and sales.

See our current Pricing Guidelines and Creating Tags Tip Sheet and watch the How to Tag video series for more details.

Printing Tags

Tags must be printed on WHITE CARD STOCK using the 'NORMAL' quality print setting. Colored paper does not scan well at checkout and thin paper will easily tear away from the item. 'Draft/Economy' print quality is too light and 'Best' print quality tends to print barcodes that are too thick for our scanners to read.

Also make sure that the printer is set to PORTRAIT setting. If set to LANDSCAPE setting, then the tags will print too small and cannot be read by our scanners. Our templates print 9 tags per sheet.

Attaching Tags: Clothing Items

Attach tags to clothing items using either a tagging gun or safety pin. Be sure to attach the tag using the garment's label or the hem at the collar/waistband, especially if using a tagging gun. DO NOT puncture a hole directly into the material. I also suggest taping the tagging gun barb or safety pin directly onto the tag to prevent it from being separated from your items as well. See Tagging Gun Tip Sheet.

Attaching Tags: Non-Clothing Items

Tape the tag securely with packing tape onto a flat surface of the item without covering the barcode.

NOTE: For books we recommend using blue painter's tape (preferred) to attach tags to books. Packaging, Scotch or Masking tape tends to tear the book cover when removing the tag.

Attaching Tags: Bagged Items

Our scanners have a very difficult time scanning the barcode through plastic bags due to the glare. Instead, tape the tag on the outside of a bag with clear packaging tape and without covering the barcode.

Word-of-mouth advertising is the best form of advertising and market research has shown that it takes 10 Shoppers for each Consignor to sell the majority of their items at the event. We can't do this without you. Consider helping out in one of these ways:

  • Share as many Free Admission Passes as you can to your local social network? Email us at tashajohnson@jbfsale.com with the words "Free Passes" in the subject heading with your home address and how many passes you want and we'll mail them to you!
