Due to the growth of this area of our sale events--we will now host a new sale separate from our kids events specifically for Ladies Clothing & Accessories as well as Home Decor and Furnishings. Everyone's so excited about this part of our sale so here's all you need to know to clear out the clutter and turn it into cash!

- Minimum price $2. Combine similar items into groups if you like.
- Consignors earn 55 - 65% of their sold items less $9.50 non-refundable consignor fee.
- This is NOT a yard sale event. We operate similar to a consignment/resale store except we are a large 2 day event. Shoppers won't need to go from table to table...our sales floor is setup similar to a department store with similar items grouped together for shopping ease and convenience. There will be no price haggling, items are priced/tagged by our consignors at the best and final price. Shop early for best selection.

Appliances (refrigerators, microwaves, dishwashers, stoves/ovens, washers/dryers, etc)
Tagging Women's clothing:
Clothing must be on hangers (plastic only--no wire hangers). You will not receive the hanger back after the sale so go cheap. Clothing is abundant so price competitively. The #1 complaint we hear from shoppers is that clothing is priced too high. Good rule of thumb with pricing is 25 - 30% of retail (go higher up to 50% of retail if brand name, new with tags or specialty/seasonal item). Always ask yourself "How much would I pay for this?"
Use a safety pin or a tagging gun is preffered (fine fabric barbs) to secure the tag to the clothing. See our tagging supplies page to purchase tagging gun. Place pin or barb in the tag or seam of the item to prevent poking holes in the garment. Shoppers don't buy clothes with holes poked in them. See picture below. DO NOT use tape to secure tags to clothing. Clothing with taped tags will be rejected and we will ask you to secure them with safety pin or tagging gun.
Tagging home decor & furniture:
Do not tape tags to home decor items if you feel it may ruin the item or pull off the finish. Instead, you may punch a hole in the tag and use a zip tie or piece of yarn/string to secure the tag to the item. Or instead of clear packing tape use painters tape instead. Just make sure the tag isn't going to fall off because if it does and you don't have a good description on the tag, we won't be able to re-secure it for you and the item will end up in the lost & found, unsold! DO NOT cover or tape over the barcode on the tag so that we can't scan your item to sell.
When tagging pictures, paintings etc., please place the tag on the front of the item. If space permits, we hope to hang them on the wall or a peg board to get you maximum exposure to sell these items. Otherwise they will be stacked together similar to an art store or expo.
Good rule of thumb with pricing is 25 - 30% of retail (go higher up to 50% of retail if high end item or new with tags).
