White card stock only (60-67LBS) to print tags on. (6 tags will print per page)
(regular printer weight paper is not permitted, it is too thin and will become separated from the item)
Scotch Tape(books/gentler items)
Scissors to separate the tags after printing them
One inch or larger Safety Pins
Zip ties, clear packing tape, ribbon or string for items that cannot be pinned
Plastic zip or slide lock bags(for accessories/parts)
Make a pile next to your computer. It is easier to input the items if you have the same type together(example-Books) This is because
you will not have to change the drop downs as many times. You will not need to do all tags at the same time; it can be done in stages.
When ready to print your tags make sure your computer is allowing pop ups. The tags pop up in a new window so you need to enable
that feature. VERY IMPORTANT!!! Please make sure to clean your print heads prior to printing your tags. If your tags are smudged
or smeared please reprint them. They WILL NOT scan at the sale. Tags will remain in the system and can be reused for up to two
years if item is unsold.
Tags: Note: You must use log onto our online tagging system to create tags.
We need consignors to really check for stains. Please take the items outside to the natural light to look for stains. We need to
keep quality control. Unfortunately, we have had to institute a rule that if we get more than 3 complaints against items brought by a
consignor for stains or items that do not work etc. we will have to revoke consigning privileges.
**Each item must have its own tag and item number.
**If you make any changes to tag you must reprint it.
Consignor ID-This will be a number that is assigned to you by our tagging service and will not change, even for future sales.
(up to 2 years unless the tag is updated with changes)
Then you will enter the tagging area:
First there is a drop down box to identify the type of item(Toys, Books)
Size-Please do not use S,M, or L. They are often placed in the wrong size and will not sell.
Description-please use this space to sell this item. EX. Fisher Price Little People. This description will also help us to find its
match if it falls off.
2nd Description box- This is a good place to list any other qualities the item has. Example All original pieces included or
IF YOU PICK-UP CLOTHING with the intent to try and sell again-one suggestion is to put a F after the description to earmark
the item as a Fall clothing Item or a X if it is a Spring item. This way when you are importing items from a previous sale to the current
sale you are only bringing over items that are for that season. This helps you keep a better track of what you are picking up and helps
us so we have a better count for the racks we will need
Discount- Check this box if you want to sell your item 1/2 price during the half price sale. Please check if donating, because it is
better to sell at 1/2 price than not at all. If the box is not checked the item will sell for full price for the length of the sale.
Donate- A "Yes" will indicate that you WILL NOT be taking that item home after the sale. It will be become property of Your
Child and Mine who will donate a portion to appropriate charities of our choice. Check the box if you want to donate. Again if donating
please check discount so that you may get something for the item before donation time!!!
Please use white paper for tags if donating!!
****WE ARE NOW REQUIRING YOU TO HIGHLIGHT THE WORD DONATE IN YELLOW IF YOU ARE DONATING
It will help made sorting much easier
**We now are offering donation receipts to those consignors who donate items.**
Please bring a self-addressed envelope when dropping off to receive this donation slip.
Price-We require a minimum price on all items of a $1.00. Increases after that should only be in .50 increments. If an item will not
bring in $1 by itself bundle items together. (The tagging service will allow you other options for pricing, but Your Child and Mine is
only allowing items priced as stated above.)
PRICE TO SELL. In general, merchandise is consigned between 20-40% of it retail price depending on its condition. Larger
items like an Exersaucer that is in great condition will sell for 40% of it purchase price, clothing is more like 20%.. Think about how
much you would be willing to pay for it.
Attach tags to items.(Please do not cover bar code with tape) The best suggestion is to use packing tape to attach the tag to
plastic toys. Scotch Tape is better to use on books, and gentler items. Safety pins are best for cloth or fabric items at the top of the
tag. Packing tape is best for items bundled or accessories in bags. Please attach to the front of the bag and please do not put tags
inside of the bag, we cannot scan them. OPTIONAL: To minimize lost and found items we suggest items should include your consignor
number separate of the tag. Handwrite your consignor number on a piece of masking tape or use return labels run through your printer
with the 4 digit consignor number only. Attach to inside of each article of clothing and to the outside of all other items. Please do not
use staples to attach tags. Suggestion: Including the original instruction booklet and/or warranty information is helpful but make sure
that it is attached to the item.
NOTE: You will not receive your tags back after the sale.
Hangers-Position the hanger like a question mark-the opening on the left side if you are looking at the front of the
garment. You must hang pants flat on hanger with either a clip hanger or by pinning the pants at the shoulders with
safety pins. We cannot accept pants folded over the hanger, it takes up too much room.
We would like separate (not a complete set) bedding pieces (blankets, sheets, mattress covers etc.) to be hung on a clip
hanger. We will have a hanging rack and it will be easier for customers to see your items.
If the item is a 2-piece outfit, attach both parts together so they will not separate. Use only one tag on these items.
You need to describe both pieces on the tag so that, if they become separated, they can be matched. You may also bag
onsies or T-shirts in a package and price as one item.
If you would like to obtain a Tagging Gun
The price should be $7.99, which includes free shipping.
This item is not required, but just makes it easier and faster.
Please be aware that it can take up to two-three weeks to arrive!!!!
Organize the clothing so that gender and size are separated to reduce your drop-off time.
There is a 10 pair limit. Please do not bring worn out sneakers. They will not sell and will be removed from the floor.
People are very picky about footwear. Only bring your best "new" to "next to new" condition.
Please tie the laces, buckle buckles and close Velcro to make them look their best.
Please attach the shoes with laces, zip ties, or a ribbon. You may also use a clear plastic bag if the shoes are small
enough. (They sell better when in bags) No shoe boxes please, there is no room to display them.
Clean and put in batteries if necessary.
Some pointers for cleaning:
Mr Clean Magic Eraser is a great tool for cleaning plastic toys.
WD-40 will remove crayon marks with ease.
Check Puzzles, games and anything with accessories to make sure they are complete. If possible, put pieces in a plastic
bag inside the game box. This will help the small pieces not fall out during the sale. Make sure to note this information
on the tag, it helps to sell the item.
Put all accessories in a plastic bag and attach to the larger item with packing tape. This is very important
because it will stop the separation or theft of small items. Please mark the bag with your consignor number so that if it
gets separated we can identify it.
If you have a lot of little things, put them together in bags. Here are some ideas:
-Small toys like action figures
-Safety items(cabinet locks, plugs etc.)
-Small dress up items(Ex. necklaces, small purses, princess mirrors etc.)
-Onsies or socks

directions below to ensure a great experience for you

your tags do not have barcodes.
