More Tips:

Maximize your sales. Start by tagging “best sellers” (see below). If you haven’t reached your max, work in your best selection of infant / all other categories.

Best Sellers at Little T

  • Sizes 18 months – 10/12
  • Shoes
  • Large essentials: Strollers, high chairs, exersaucers, pack & plays, bouncers
  • Large toys / outdoor toys: Little tykes, play houses, things on wheels, easels, wagons, bike accessories
  • Toys, toys, toys – as long as they aren’t recalled and accessories are still sold in stores
  • Brand names at fair prices

SPRING/SUMMER items only. Know what we can/can’t accept before you spend the time prepping.

USING A TAGGING GUN? To prevent holes, punch through the garment tag (inside the collar or waistband) or at a seam (underarm preferred). Do not use your tagging gun to attach pants to a top to create an outfit.  Safety pins must be used in this instance to attach all pieces to the hanger.

Hang items with hook facing left, like a question mark.  Pants should be hung facing out with the waist band safety-pinned to the top part of the hanger. Adult wire hangers work well.

Create outfits.  Give ’em a deal, and they sell very well.

Best shoes only. Limit 10 pair per boy/girl. Zip-tie shoes together. Secure 1/2 size tag with size and barcode to in-sole. Consider writing your seller number and price on the sole.

Toys must work with batteries. They won’t sell if they don’t function.

Multiple-piece items (toys, accessories) should be packaged in a way that reduces risk of separation. We recommend ziploc bags, especially the XL bags for large items.

Selling a large item? Order/Print the barcode and make a tag. Wait to attach the tag until drop-off, where you will receive a large item claim ticket to use with your tag. Plan to assemble cribs, etc.
