On the final day of the sale, you have the option to mark all or some of your items for 50%off. An extremely useful pricing guide can be found on Consignmentmommies.com

  17. How do I tag my items?
  18. After you have registered as a consignor you may begin to input your items into the program. Prepare washed clothing on wire hangers and attached the printed barcode tags with a tagging gun or safety pin. For toys and larger items, attached the barcode tag with packing tape. Do not place tape over the barcode. To see all tagging instructions, click here.

  19. What will happen at drop off and how long will it take?
  20. All items will be inspected at drop off to be certain they are stain free and in working order. Please do not be offended if an item is declined. We strive to put forth excellent items to sell and feel if you would not buy it, do not sell it. Once the items have been inspected you will be asked to place your items on the sale floor. The entire process will take 20 to 30 minutes.

  24. At the close of each sale day you will be able to look up the items that have sold on the My Sales Manager software.
