• Items should be clean and free of odors, stains, and hair
  • Please inspect closely for any stains, discolorations, missing buttons, snaps, or broken zippers
  • Toys should be clean and come with all parts; toys with batteries must have batteries installed and be in working condition
  • Any items not meeting the quality criteria will be rejected


  • wire hangers ONLY for all children's clothing

  • safety pins to secure tags if not using tagging gun 
  • zip-ties, clear packing tape, clear bags, plastic wrap for non-clothing items

  • Shoppers are coming to consignment sales for a bargain. Reasonably priced items sell quickly. Higher priced items may not sell during the full-price days, so please consider selecting items for 50% discount day(s).
  • Each item must be a minimum of $1.00. Our system does not allow for entry for items less than $1.00. Items can be valued in 50 cent increments if over $1.00. 
  • Price is determined by the consignor, but please price items at an amount that YOU would be willing to pay. We recommend pricing gently used items for 50-70% off the original retail price. Items that are new with tags or in like new condition can be priced 30-40% off the original retail price.
  • When in doubt, google search your item for a current price and deduct 50-70% off to give you an idea of a good price. Also you can price-compare to Poshmark. 
  • There is a learning curve to pricing your items for a successful sale.  We want you to be happy with what you've sold so remember to price competitively. You've worked hard in preparing your merchandise and want to sell as many items as possible.  


  • As the consignor, you have the option of choosing "YES" or "NO" to discount for each item entered.
  • On discount days, items will be sold for 50% off unless the consignor chooses "NO" for the discount option while inputting each tag online.


  • Sign in to your consignor account and click on "Begin Tagging" to start entering your items.

  • Our system is fully automated with bar-coded tags so everything is done online. You must be a registered consignor before you can begin tagging.
  • Brand name must be on the 1st description line (i.e. Matilda Jane). The 2nd description line must detail item as much as possible (i.e yellow short sleeve dress). This helps identify an item in case the tag comes off and also inhibits tag-swapping.

  • For clothing, use a tagging gun or safety pin (NOT straight pins).

  • Please attach your tags to your clothing items in the brand tag (at the collar). If no brand tag, attach tags in a seam, or in the arm pit area (on the right side of the clothing). Avoid tagging/pinning through fabric as it causes holes in the clothing. 

  • Secure tag to item well enough that it will stay on in the midst of excessive handling. 

  • For toys and other non-clothing items, make sure to only tape the top of the tag, do not tape over barcode, & make sure tape does not damage the item. We recommend taping on the backside. 

  • Sort according to size & gender BEFORE arriving to at drop-off.

  • If using a clear plastic bag, tape the top of plastic bags shut to prevent items from slipping out and getting lost. Do NOT tape over the bar code; tape only over the top of the tag.
  • Shoes: do not put shoes into clear plastic bags or in original box; shoppers want to see them easily. Tie shoestrings together or use zip-ties. Also use zip-ties or safety pins to secure your tag. 
  • Puzzles: please use clear bags or plastic wrap! Similarly, anything with multiple pieces, you MUST secure these onto the item either with zip-ties, masking tape, or use clear plastic bags.
  • Any furniture item, toy, or other unique set that has special qualities or features, include those details on a separate index cardThis will help promote your item!
  • Any unsold items that you do not want returned to you can be marked for donation. Choose the "Donate" option when entering these items online. All donated items that do not sell will be donated to local charities of Fairytale Finds choice.
  • You may reuse printed tags from previous sales but you MUST move these items from "inactive inventory" to "active inventory", as long as all the info is the same. If you want to edit your prices, you must move your items into active inventory, then you can edit each item and reprint those tags. If you do not move items into active inventory, the barcode will not be scannable, making your item unable to sell. 


  • Tags MUST be printed on heavy white card-stock paper ONLY! No paper tags will be allowed as they are more likely to rip during the sale. 
  • Your printer must be set to NORMAL before printing. Not doing so may cause the barcodes to be blurry and unreadable to the scanners. Also, do not adjust the size of tags when printing. They need to be of uniform size as selected by our automated system and only 6 tags to a page. Unreadable tags must be entered by hand at check-out because our scanners cannot detect the small barcode, slowing down the check-out process.
  • Please print a test page of tags before mass printing to ensure the ink does not rub off on your fingers and is not blurry or unreadable.


  • Wire hangers are REQUIRED for children's clothing, as they take up less space on racks.

  • Plastic hangers are accepted for juniors/ladies clothing only! Wire hangers are acceptable for junior/ladies clothing, as long as the hanger doesn't seem to damage the clothing. Sometimes spaghetti strap, large, or heavier-weight items hang better on plastic hangers.

  • Hang clothing with the opening of the hanger facing to the left, like a question mark. For tiny/infant clothing, you can bend the arms of hanger upward to accommodate these sizes. 

  • You may add safety pins only if you need to secure the item to the hanger, but please make sure to put them in a seam, collar, or under the collar, so they won't damage the item.  

  • Pin the waistband of pants and skirts to the top of the hanger about 3-4" from the end of the fabric
  • Do not pin to the bottom of the hanger or they will just slide back and forth. Do not fold pants over the hanger, as shoppers can't properly view item.             


  • You may choose the "Donate" option for your items that do not sell. 
  • You can choose some items & not others with our automated system.
  • We donate these unsold items to local charities chosen each sale by Fairytale Finds.
