How to attach your tags

Supplies:

✔️ White card stock for printing tags (Regular paper or other colors will not be accepted.)

✔️ Clothes hangers

✔️ Safety pins or Tagging Gun like this one (Makes tagging clothing so fast and easy! If using a gun, you must place the barb inside a seam to avoid holes in the fabric.)

✔️ Zip ties

✔️ Ziplocks

✔️ Rubber bands

✔️ Packing tape

✔️ Painter's tape (for tagging books or other paper items)

All supplies can be found at Walmart, Target or any dollar store! Some supplies may be optional, depending on what items you're tagging.
 

Clothing:

Must be on clothes hangers with the hook opening facing left like a question mark(?). Tags must be placed on the top-righthand side when looking at the front of the item.

For items larger than a shopping tote:

Place tags in a ziplock and bring them with you to Drop Off. You will be given a large item claim tag to attach your tags to these items.

Item Prep FAQs

What supplies do I need to tag my items?

It depends on what sort of items you're tagging, but most consignors will need white card stock, clothes hangers, safety pins or tagging gun, ziplocks, rubber bands, painter's tape and packing tape.
 

Am I required to use a specific type of clothes hanger?

We do not require any specific hanger type, but adult wire hangers are our fav for consigning! They maximize space on our racks and work great for all clothing sizes.
 

Do I get my hangers back after the sale?

No, each hanger is sold with the item. Hangers are inexpensive and can be found at Walmart, Target, or local dollar stores. Sometimes department stores will even give them away for free! It's also a great idea to save up hangers from new clothing purchases for consigning.
 

My printer's down. What can I do?!

Consider having a friend print for you, or visit a local office supply store for super reasonable printing services.
