Checking Items for Recall

Checking Baby Gear -- To see if your infant or child product (play yard, bassinet, stroller, etc.) has been recalled, please visit the CSPC website by clicking here. This will open a page on the cpsc.gov site with a list of products that have been recalled.

Scroll through the list, or use your browser window to search for your brand. Click on the Edit menu at the top and choose 'Find' from the options, type in your brand name, and click 'next' to see each item with that brand name.

Checking Toys -- To see if your toy has been recalled, please visit the CSPC website by clicking here. This will open a page on the cpsc.gov site with a list of all toys that have been recalled.

Scroll through the list, or use your browser window to search for your brand. Click on the Edit menu at the top and choose 'Find' from the options, type in your brand name, and click 'next' to see each item with that brand name.

__________________________________________________________________

The new safety law does not require resellers to test children's products for lead. However, resellers cannot sell children's products that exceed the lead limit and therefore should avoid products that are likely to contain lead. In the case of consignment events, consignors are the 'resellers', so it is important that everyone take precautions to ensure that the items they bring to the sale are not subject to recall.

We are committed to helping our consignors sell products that meet the safety standards of the CPSC. To ensure the safety of your children, we will not sell items noted in the statement -- recalled children's products, children's products that are likely to contain lead such as children's jewelry, painted metal toys, flimsy toys that are easily breakable into small parts or contain small parts that are not securely fastened and could present a choking hazard.

Consignors sign an agreement which states that all items they are selling do not, to the best of their knowledge, contain lead and are not subject to recall.

Together, we provide our community with an opportunity to buy quality, safe, gently used children's merchandise, and to get a great return for the children's items that are outgrown.

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 on 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 (cable ties) 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 bags, but may cause damage when used directly on 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 on

*Rubber bands or twist-ties to help you group all same sized and gender clothing together after tagging to make drop-off quicker.


 

Basic tag instructions:

*Tags contain the following information:
  • SELLER # - This is the code assigned to each seller at registration, it will be a 4-digit number
  • 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 on 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 and Kinkos sell cardstock in packages and individual sheets.

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 (letter or number). Any items printed on white will be donated, and will not get sorted for pick-up.

If your last name begins begins with:
Print tags on this color:
A - C
Green
D - G
Pink
H - K
Pink or Red
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. You can find full reams in your color at Kinkos.

Be sure to indicate whether your items should be marked down for the 1/2 price sale by circling 'yes' or 'no' in the space provided (or by checking the box in the online inventory)

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. NO STICK PINS - OUCH!

Make sure the tag is visable 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 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 (not fine) print setting. Faded barcodes or those that are too dark may not work because the lines bleed into each other. The barcode needs to appear crisp and clear.

  • 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.
