Preparing your items

Consignors tag and price all of their own items. Instructions on how to tag your items are given below. With each consignor tagging their items the same way Jack n Jill continues to be an organized, easy-to-shop consignment sale. We appreciate your attention to detail as you prepare your sale inventory!

MAKING YOUR TAGS

PLEASE NOTE: You will need to enter your items online and print your own tags.

 

To make your tags click on the consignors/workers link. From there you will:

1.   Click on Item Entry and Barcodes. Enter your consignor number and password.tag2

2.   Click on “Work with My Consigned Items”. From here you will choose a category, size, description, and price. For the description be as detailed as possible. Put colors, patterns (for example: floral, plaid, stripes, etc.), and Brand (for example: GAP, Old Navy, Carters, etc.).

3.   If you check the “Check to Discount” box, this means that you will let it go for ½ price on Saturday. Leave it unchecked if you do not want it to go for ½ price. If you check the “Check to Donate” box, this means that you do not want your item back if it does not sell. We will donate it to a local charity.

4.   When you are done click Submit Item. If you do not finish and want to come back, just click on “I’m finished for now”. All your tags will be saved.

5.   When you are completely finished entering all of your items Click “I’m finished for now”. This will take you back to the main page. Go to print tags. Be sure your card-stock is white or off-white. Our scanners will not be able to scan a dark colored paper.

6.   You will need to cut these apart yourself.

7. If there is a problem with a tag or you need one reprinted, we will be able to do that for you once we are set up at the sale.

NOTE: European or English clothing and shoe sizes should be stated on the tag (in the description) WITH the U.S. Size. Use our European Clothing Size Conversion Chart as a reference.

TAGGING CLOTHING AND SHOES
On garments, attach the tag with a safety pin near the upper right side of the garment. All clothing items should be hung with the hook facing left. Please use safety pins to hang pants rather than folding them over the hanger.*NOTE: Please do not group items as an outfit if they are different sizes. For more information on how to hang a multiple piece outfit together, please visit our Helpful Tips page.Ziploc bags are best for shoes. Place the card on the inside of the Ziploc bag, then pin the safety pin through both sides of the bag, including the card. If shoes won’t fit in a Ziploc, tie or pin laces together, or use rubber bands on loafer type shoes. Pin card securely to shoes.>>>Cards will be removed at check-out, so please remember this as you determine how to affix your cards.
TAGGING OTHER ITEMS
Toys, books, videos & small items can be placed in Ziploc bags. The bag’s contents should be thoroughly described on the card.On large items, simply tape the tag to the item for easy viewing and removal. If the item includes extra parts, please make note of them in the item’s description. IMPORTANT: Place masking tape with your consignor number & price on the bottom or underneath side of each large item and each shoe ALONG WITH the printed tag. This helps identify your item in case the card is lost, Please DO NOT put duplicate 3×5 index cards on an item.
IMPORTANT TAGGING DETAILS
  • Minimum item price of $2.00. Only $0.50 increments. Items that are priced other than $0.50 increments will be sold at the nearest $0.50 increment lower than the marked price. (example – $3.75 will be sold for $3.50)
  • Remember to place masking tape with your consignor number and price on the bottom of each large item and on the bottom of each shoe ALONG WITH THE PRINTED TAG. This helps identify your item in case the card is lost. But please DO NOT put a duplicate tag on an item.
  • Items with no printed tag will be sold at our discretion, but consignors cannot expect credit for those items since the item doesn’t have a consignor number. Don’t forget your barcode!!!
  • Competitively price your items. PRICE TO SELL! What would you pay? Normally 25-30% of retail is a good general figure to go by when pricing your items. We’d rather give you a bigger check than a lot of unsold items! See our Everything You Need to Know About Consigning page for more details on pricing and preparing your items.
