Here are some guidelines to help as you prepare your items for the sale. Click here to see what is acceptable and not acceptable for the sale.

Supplies Needed

HANGERS – in order to protect your clothing items we only accept plastic hangers. Find plastic hangers at Wal-Mart, Target, Dollar Stores. Retail plastic hangers are acceptable too.

STRING TAGS – Avery White Marking Tags Strung (size 1.75 x 1.093 inches) are required on each item to affix our barcode labels to. You can find these at Wal-Mart, office supply stores, Rhea Lana Store (link) or large quantities may be purchased from Amazon.

You’ll also need re-sealable bags (for shoes, small toys, etc…), masking tape, scotch tape, sharpie, and safety pins. For large quantities of quality safety pins we recommend ordering from Cleaners Supply .

For our next event, we will be accepting Fall/Winter clothing in Children's, Junior, and Maternity sizes. Fall/Winter items: Boots, Winter coats, Snowsuits, dance wear, Costumes, holiday attire etc.


1) Check for stains, broken zippers, torn hemlines, missing buttons, etc. We will double check at consignor check in and will not accept items that are not in excellent condition.

2) PLEASE WASH AND IRON YOUR CLOTHING.

3) Use PLASTIC Hangers only. Please, no metal hangers! This makes shopping a pleasant experience for everyone. Clothes tend to fall off metal hangers and may be overlooked and not purchased if on the floor. Note: Use children's plastic hangers for sizes 10 and below. Use adult plastic hangers for sizes 12 and above. Plastic hangers can be purchased at discount stores.

4) Group items together so that they will equal a value of at least $3.00. Infant sleeping gowns, onesies and children's pajamas are great to group together as a set of 2 or 3. They may be pinned together on one hanger.

5) Pin all pants to a hanger, ironed flat front. Pants that are folded over on a hanger will not be accepted.

6) All sets and accessories need to be pinned securely together. Both pieces need to be viewable without unpinning them. If a shirt/pant set are on separate hangers, rubber band the hangers together. Anything sold as a set MUST BE THE SAME SIZE!
