Preparing Shoes

  2. ZIP TIE TOGETHER (do not tie together with laces) - NO SHOES IN BAGS!

  3. Discard shoe boxes, unless shoes new in box (should still be zip tied together). Place tag on shoes, NOT box.

  2. REGISTER TO SELL ONLINE to begin entering inventory (SEE TAGGING VIDEO)

  3. PRINT TAGS on white cardstock paper, 8.5 x 11, 60lb+ (WHITE ONLY, NO COLORS)

Clothing Sizes

CHOOSE THE SMALLEST NUMBER SIZE PRINTED ON TAG (If tag says "3 - 9 months," select "3 months." If tag says "8/10", select "8," or select the smallest corresponding number size for letters from chart below (example: If garment says only "XS," select size 4.).

Attaching Tags to Clothes

  1. ATTACH TAG ON RIGHT SIDE, in underarm seam, with small safety pin or fine tagging gun.

    • If using a tagging gun, attach in a seam only.  DO NOT ATTACH THROUGH FABRIC. It will make a hole​, making item unsellable.

  2. MULTIPLE-PIECE OUTFITS - RUBBER BAND HANGERS TOGETHER.

    • Do not bundle multi-piece outfits by using tagging gun or safety pin to attached one piece to another. The weight of the items will make a hole, making item unsellable. Attach additional pieces directly to hanger, not other clothing!
