How to Prepare Your Items:

Clothing

  • We have a $2.00 minimum price.  If a single item isn’t valued at $2.00, please combine it with another item. 
  • When entering your items, put exact sizes.  If you are mixing any sizes or items run small, please note that in the description field.
  • All clothing items need to be on hangers.  Looking at the front of the item on the hanger, the top of the hanger should look like the top of a question mark.  You can tag items using safety pins or tagging guns.  If you are using a tagging gun, please make sure that you are tagging into a seam to avoid holes.
  • Pants can be hung with pant hangers, or safety pins and wire hangers. Pin them on the top bar on each side of the hook.  

Shoes

  • Shoes must be clean on both the top and bottom.  You may need to put them through the washing machine.
  • Shoes must be secured together.  You can pin them, tie the laces, or zip tie them together.  Infant sized shoes can be bagged together with the tag taped to the inside or attached to the outside of the bag.  Do not seal the bag until after the shoes have been inspected at drop off.

Toys, Games, Puzzles, Books, Video and Computer Games:

  • If an item has additional parts, please bag the parts and attach them securely to the item.  You can tape your tag to the inside of the bag, but do not seal the bag until your item has been inspected at drop off.
  • If you are grouping items such as books, DVDs, puzzles, etc. together in a clear plastic bag, please tape the tag to the inside of the bag.  Do not seal the bag closed until it has been inspected at drop off.
