How do I prepare my items?

Materials Needed for Prep:

  • Hangers (wire is preferred)

  • Safety Pins (small pins or gold pins will not be accepted.  Invest in good pins to make sure your items stay securely on the hangers.)

  • Small Zip Ties to connect shoes together: Can be ordered on Amazon or purchased at Wal-Mart.

  • Rubberbands to connect shoes or other items

  • Small Ziplock Baggies if you are consigning jewelry items

  • Large Bags may be needed for some home decor items 

 

 

Step 1: ​ After you have gathered all your accepted items, make sure to check for any stains, holes, missing buttons, broken zippers, or extreme wear, Check your shoes and purses for scuffs and other wear.  

Step 2: It is not required, but highly recommended that your items are freshly laundered and iron or steam any garments that require it.  Items that look new will stand out and sell first.  Any items that are covered in pet hair, extreme lint, or smell of cigarette smoke will be rejected at drop off. 

Step 3: Hang all items on hangers.  Wire hangers are not required, but highly recommended for space and to easily slide on the racks.  They are also much better at keeping clothes on the hanger.  Shirts must be hung on the hanger with the hanger pointing left so when you look at it, it looks like a question mark.  Pants need to be secured to hangers with large safety pins.  Small gold safety pins will not hold the weight of adult clothing and will not be accepted. Please make sure all sweaters and clothing with larger necks are secured using safety pins.  If you are combining a top with a bottom, hang the shirt on the hanger first, then secure the bottoms to the back of the item OR hang each item separately and secure the hangers together by rubber banding them.    Button all buttons and zip all zippers.

Step 4: Women's items tend to sell best as separate pieces unless it is a suit or items that go together.  

 

Step 5: Shoes need to be secured using zip ties or rubberbands to keep them together.  Shoes brought in bags or shoe boxes will not be accepted.  

Step 6: Jewelry needs to be secured in a Ziplock bag that is seal with tape.  

Step 7: Home Decor needs to be cleaned and free of pet hair or stains.  Secure your tags using packing tape.  All electronic items must be in working condition with all the necessary pieces.  Items that have multiple pieces need to be secured together so they will not get separated.  

*If you have large items that are being sold together but can't be connected easily, create one tag, but put how many pieces total in the description.  Print off multiple copies of that tag and mark through the barcode with a black sharpie on everything but the main tag.  Hand write on the tag "#1 of 4, #2 of 4, #3 of4, etc.

How do I price, enter, and tag my items?

Materials Needed for Tagging:

  • Computer or Phone to enter your items in our MyCM program

  • Printer (You can also save the PDF of your tags and have them printed at your local office supply store.)

  • Cardstock 65# or larger (white or light colors only. No metallic or dark colors.)

Pricing Tips/Guidelines:

  • ​ Price to sell!  You have put in all the work to sell your items and make money, so you don't want to bring it home.  Consignors with the best prices sell more items and ultimately make more money.

  • General rule of thumb: Think about what you would pay for it.  If you won't buy it at that price, chances are no one else will.

  • 50-75% Off Retail is a good rule of thumb for most consignment.  Hard to find items, exclusive pieces, and limited editions will sell for more, but don't price yourself out of a sale.

  • DISCOUNT, DISCOUNT, DISCOUNT.   If your items are marked for discount, you are losing a whole day of selling event if your items are cheaper than those that are discounted.  Shoppers want the deal- so don't miss out on those sales.  Other than opening day, discount day is our second highest sales day. 

  • Consider donating your unsold items.  We have been working with the Nashville Dream Center for several years.  They do a lot of great work in our community and the donated items will be helping your local families in need.
