CLOTHING

We sell children's clothing, infant through juniors, as well as maternity!  Our fall sale is for fall and winter clothing only - please leave shorts, tank tops and sundresses at home.  Be picky! Look at your clothing items as though you were going to purchase them.  No stained, frayed clothing or clothing with holes in it.  Please freshly launder your clothing, button all buttons and snap all snaps. The newer items look, the better they sell!

 

Package & Hang:  Hangers - Please hang clothes so the hanger hook points to the left (like a question mark).  Hang size 0-6 clothing on child-size hangers and sizes 7-20 and maternity clothing on adult-size hangers. Clothing that falls off the hanger onto the floor does not sell well. Old Navy and many outlet stores are great places to get free hangers (they throw away hangers daily!) and Walmart & Target sell child-size plastic tube hangers at a great price.  Clothing Sets - Sets tend to sell better (under size 6) so match things up if you can. All garments should be hung with the hanger hook pointing left (hanger should resemble a question mark when looking at the front of item). Use safety pin to attach clothing sets securely with bottom garment hung on the backside of the shirt, so both pieces can be viewed without separating them.  Do not pin more than 2-3 items on the same hanger as the weight can pull and create holes!  Pants/Shorts - Pant-clip hangers are great but if you use a standard hanger, simply safety pin pants to the top part of the hanger so the garment will not slide. Socks, tights, hats and infant mittens need to be in a clear zip-lock bag (you may group multiple items in one bag).

 

Price:  Hanging Clothing -  Put outfits/set together to price for at least $3.00; Start at $3 for basic, generic brand 0-24mo outfit. Add $1 each for larger size, name brand, formal, and heavy/winter.  Single items of clothing can start at $2 for generic brand and up.  Think about what you would pay for the same item!  Non-hanging Clothing - Put sets together to price for at least $3.00, but okay to price for less (i.e., 6 pair of socks for $1.50).

 

Tag:  Clothing on Hangers - Attach tag with a tagging gun or safety pin to the label of shirt or upper right front of pants. If using a tagging gun, Insert the gun in a label or inside seam lip NOT through part of the clothing (to avoid making a hole or tear in the clothing). Also, pull on the tag to make sure it is properly secured and will not come off easily. Please make sure consignor tags are pulled out of the clothing so they are easily visible to the customers.  Non-Hanging Clothing -  Put these items into clear zip-lock bags. Please do not tape bags closed - shoppers want to feel and inspect items before purchasing.

BOOKS, DVD'S & VIDEO GAMES

Books, DVDs and games are huge sellers!  These items should be child and family related.  DVDs should be rated G or PG and Video Games with a rating of E.  Please check your books for writing or torn pages, and your DVDs for scratches!

 

Package:  Books can be sold individually or in sets.  Sets can be put in clear plastic backs or grouped together and tied with ribbon.  DVDs can be sold individually or also packaged together in a clear bag or wrapped with ribbon/string.

 

Price: Books can be priced anywhere from $0.50 and up!  These are great items to group together.  DVDs are usually in the $2-5 range unless they are high demand or recently released.

SHOES

Make sure that shoes are clean, clean, clean! We will be VERY selective with shoes during Consignor Drop Off & Inspection. Shoes must be current season (Fall = October thru March; Spring = April thru October.)

 

Package: Fasten shoes together with zip ties. For infant shoes or small shoes without laces, you may put the shoes in a clear zip-lock bag. We prefer no shoe boxes. However, if shoes are in the box, please remove the lid, secure it to the bottom of the box, and secure the shoes to the box (closed boxes do not sell well.)

 

Price: Shoes must be in good condition and should start at $3.00 for infant/toddler; Increase in price for larger size, name brand, or heavy/winter.

 

Tag: Punch a hole in the top of your tag and attach the tag to the shoes with the ribbon, string, or zip tie. For infant shoes in a clear zip-lock bag, put the tag inside the bag and tape the bag shut with clear packing tape.

FEEDING PRODUCTS

Booster Seats, High Chairs, Sippy Cups, Bottles, Utensils, Bibs, Bottle Drying Racks and more!  These items sell well when they are in very good condition.  Please make sure these items are clean!  We do not accept used nipples in bottles.

 

Package: Bottles, sippy cups and utensils should be bundled together in sets in zip lock bags.

 

Price: High chairs, boosters and bumbos sell very well.  Price items 50-75% off of retail.

 

Tag: Items in clear bags should have the tag taped with clear tape to the bag.  Tags can also be taped to bottle warmers and drying racks.  Larger items should have a tag taped/pinned to it but large item tags will be placed on them after drop off.

FURNISHINGS

Package:  If item has multiple pieces use packaging tape, zip-ties, or string to keep items attached together. If wooden furniture has loose parts, use clear plastic wrap to secure item. All furniture and equipment must be assembled during the sale. Batteries must be included, if applicable. Please bring a Car Seat Checklist (link) for all car seats, booster seats, and car seat base or infant carrier.

 

Price:  Price 50% - 75% off retail. Items in great condition tend to sell very well.

 

Tag:  Hole-punch JBF tag and tie it to item. We will be attaching large item tags to furniture items as they are dropped off.  (link to tagging video)

INFANT ITEMS

Nursing covers & pillows, feeding items, monitors, safety items, diapering & toileting items, rattles, and more. Please check for safety recalls (link) on all items that you consign.  We do not accept pacifiers, nipples in bottles unless these items are new in sealed packages.

 

Package:  If item has multiple pieces use packaging tape, safety pins or clear self-seal bags to keep items attached together and clearly visible to shoppers. Batteries must be included, if applicable.

 

Price:  Price 50% - 75% off retail. Items in great condition tend to sell very well.

 

Tag:  Attach JBF tag directly to item or clear self-seal bag with clear packaging tape or hole-punch JBF tag and tie it to item. (link to tagging video)

BAGS & BABY CARRIERS

Diaper bags and infant carriers are great consignment items. Please inspect all items carefully to make sure items have not been recalled, stained, damaged or are missing pieces.

 

Package:  These items will be on tables so they do not need to be on hangers.  You can safety pin, use a tagging gun or zip tie the tags to the items.

 

Price:  Price 50% - 75% off retail. Items in great condition tend to sell very well.

 

Tag:  Attach the tag using a safety pin, tagging gun or punch a hole in the tag and use ribbon or zip tie.  If item contains multiple pieces, be sure all pieces are included and list number of items on JBF tag description.

BEDDING AND BLANKETS

Bedding sizes accepted are bassinet through full only. Please be selective when selling bedding, blankets, receiving blankets, burp cloths, and towels. We have a limit of 10 bedding items unless the items are new with tags.  New and barely used items sell best. Check carefully for stains; shoppers get very disappointed if they find a stain in a bundled blanket once they get home.

 

Package: Put bedding/crib/bedroom sets together in original packaging or in giant clear plastic bags. Arrange bedding sets inside bag so that shoppers can see all of the items as well as the design/pattern. Secure the bag so that items do not get separated. Bundle blankets, cloths, and towels with ribbon or string like a package (be sure multiple pieces cannot be separated.)

 

Price:  Price to sell! Shoppers are less likely to purchase these items used, so prices have to be low. Try to price 75% - 90% off retail.

 

Tag:  If bedding is in a plastic bag, attach tag securely with packaging tape to the inside of the bag and tape the bag shut. If bedding/blankets are bundled with string, attach tag directly to blanket and tuck it under the ribbon/string so that it does not easily get pulled off when shifting around during the sale.

Tagging Tips from Successful Consignors

  • Gather needed supplies: white cardstock, safety pins, hangers, packing tape, resealable baggies, zip-ties and/or string.
  • Tag the big ticket items first, like strollers, high chairs, exersaucers & outdoor equipment (more bang for your buck & they all sell FAST).
  • Double check that clothes and shoes are in good condition, without stains, holes or scuff marks.
  • Position your hangers like question marks when looking at the front of the garment and pin the price tag on the right side.
  • Seal baggies shut with packing tape.
  • Presort clothes by size and gender for your drop off convenience.
  • Schedule a drop off appointment if you have 300+ items by emailing lynnpayne@jbfsale.com.
