GUIDELINES FOR PRICING

When pricing your items please consider the age & condition for each item. Remember to look at each item as if you were looking to buy it for your child. When setting the price, ask yourself - How much would I spend for this item?

Prices should be in $1.00 increments. Unsure how to price an item? A good rule of thumb is 1/5 to 1/3 of the original retail amount, taking into consideration the age and condition. For new items, 1/3 to 2/3 is generally about right.

There will be a 50% OFF DISCOUNT on the last day of the sale. When filling out your tags, you must write "No Discount" clearly at the bottom of the tag if you don't want your items discounted for the 50% OFF DAY.


GUIDELINES FOR TAGGING YOUR CLOTHES & ITEMS

Tags can be printed here

You will need:

*White or your color cardstock paper
-use white to donate your unsold items after the sale, or use your specified color cardstock to have your items sorted for pickup at the end of the sale

*Scissors or paper cutter

*Hole punch

*Zip ties or ribbon for securing tags and items together

*Ziploc bags for toy or puzzle pieces, blankets, socks, etc.

*Masking / painters / packing tape - packaging tape works best for attaching tags to plastic, but may cause damage when used directly on some items. Please use painter or masking tape when in doubt.

*Hangers - use child size or adult, plastic or wire...use whichever hangers your clothes will look best -and stay- on

*Rubber bands / bags / ribbon to bundle all same sized and gender clothing together after tagging to prepare for drop-off.


 

Basic tag instructions:

*Tags contain the following information:
  • SELLER # - This is the code assigned to each seller at registration, it will be 4 characters.
  • SIZE - Fill in the size if the item is clothing. Leave blank for all other items
  • DESCRIPTION - Please include as much information as possible, brand name, color, item specifics. Include any information a potential buyer might want to know. Indicate # of pieces if more than one. A good description helps if your tag becomes separated from an item.
  • PRICE - Please use increments of $1.00. We will round down any prices which include smaller increments.
  • If you do not want an item to sell at 50% off on Sunday, you MUST write "No Discount" clearly along the BOTTOM your tag.
Notes:

Please do not cross out or change information you already have on your tags. We have no way to know if this was done by you, and might not sell your item. Please make a new tag.
Please use CARDSTOCK PAPER for tags. (This is the thickness of an index card) If you use other paper i.e., construction, regular printing paper, etc the tag may detach from your items and be lost. Office supply stores sell cardstock in packages and individual sheets. Walmart and Target have in multi-color packs.

Print tags on color cardstock if you wish to pick up unsold items at the end of the sale. Which color cardstock you use is based on the beginning character of your seller number. Any items printed on white will be donated, and will not get sorted for pick-up.

Printer settings may need to be adjusted to make tags print properly. If they are not coming out correctly, try adjusting your printer settings to 'borderless'. If you cannot get the .pdf to open, or you can't print it, contct us and we will find a solution.

Please don't tape over the bottom half of the tag when attaching to items. Tape often interferes with scanning barcodes, and makes tag removal difficult.

table test
If your last name begins begins with:
Print tags on this color:
A - C
Green
D - K
Pink
L - Q
Blue
R - S
Yellow
T - Z
Orange

Print tags on white cardstock if you wish to have unsold items donated to charity.

We do a cardstock swap at dropoff and pickup, so if you have cardstock in a color other than yours, bring it and we will trade for cardstock in your color. Walmart, Target, and Michaels carry cardstock in multi-color packs, so you can buy these and we will trade all the extra colors for the one you need.

Be sure to indicate clearly at the bottom of the tag 'no discount' if you do not want your item to be discounted on the last day.

Please use numeric sizing (0-3m, 3T, 6x) not S-M-L for children's clothing.

 

Attaching tags:

Punch a hole in the tag -be sure not to punch a hole through any of the information!

Use a zip tie (cable tie) to attach the tag to the item. Use the collar tag, belt loop, button hole, etc. If there is no place to attach a zip-tie, use a safety pin as a last resort, but please try to use a zip-tie if possible. Pins are harder to remove and may leave holes in your garments. Tagging guns may be used, but please do not make holes in the fabric if using one.

Make sure the tag is visible from the front of the item

Please point hangers to the left (like a question mark)


Shoes should be zip-tied together if possible, and may be placed in a plastic bag with the tag attached to the shoes

Any loose parts should be put in bags and attached securely to the item they go with. Seal parts bags closed with packing tape.



 GUIDELINES FOR PRINTING TAGS

Please use CARDSTOCK PAPER for tags. (This is the thickness of an index card) If you use other paper i.e., construction, regular printing paper, etc the tag may detach from your items and be lost.

If you decide to change price or discount info, please make a new tag.

Remember to use WHITE CARDSTOCK for your tags if you wish to donate unsold items after the sale, and YOUR COLOR cardstock if you wish to pick up unsold items.

Printer:

  • Please use an inkjet or laser printer with a normal or fine print setting.

  • Set your printer to maximum print area (no margins), so it doesn't cut off the bottom of the page.

  • Be sure to print one page of tags first to make sure they print correctly, before printing all of your tags (seems obvious, but we forget almost every time!)

  • If you prefer, you can print your tags on regular thin copy paper and then take them to the office supply store where they can copy your tags on cardstock. OR, you can save your tags and take / email the file to a copy center to be printed.

DONATING ITEMS THAT DO NOT SELL

Kidaround Kidsale would like to make a difference in someone’s life and we are asking for your help in making that possible. If there are any items which you would be willing to donate to families in our community in the event they don't sell during the event, please use WHITE Cardstock to make your tags. We will donate them to a variety of local charities and churches.

Consignors who use all white tags shop 1 hour early with the volunteers!
