Prep Your Items
How to Sort, Hang & Bag
- Bedding (bedding bags or XL ziplocs work best, but hang if necessary) – wait to seal bedding until after it passes inspection, please. We will open it, inspect it, and provide a supplies for you to seal your bag.
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
- 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
FALL/WINTER 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 (bedding, 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.
