HOW TO PREPARE YOUR ITEMS FOR THE SALE:
Car seats, strollers, and other equipment must be in safe working condition. If you are including an owner’s manual please attach it to the item. Car seats must be less than 5 years old otherwise they are considered expired and by law can’t be sold.
All items must be clean and stain free. We will pull items from floor that are damaged and will keep them in a box for you to pick up. Please check with an ETC Sale Manager for this box and check to see if you have items in it. If items are not claimed by the end of the bag sale, they will be donated along with any remaining items after the sale. It is your responsibility to pull your items that have not sold during the public sale. Otherwise they will be offered at the $5 bag sale and then donated to charity.
The Following Items Are Not Accepted At The Sale:
All clothing (except onesies and socks) must be on plastic hangers. If you use wire hangers your items will be rejected. You will not get your hangers back after the sale so please do not buy new hangers. The ETC Sale Manager will provide more information on how to get plastic hangers closer to the sale date. Keep all your clothing items to hang in order by size in bundles so that you can easily display them on the appropriate racks based on size. Onesies and socks should be bundled and be placed in Ziploc bags.
Shoes should be clean and have minimal wear.
Toys and Equipment
We cannot sell puzzles with missing pieces. All toys and equipment should be cleaned prior to selling. Provide batteries with items requiring them. If the toy or equipment does not work with a battery, please mention this on the price tag.
HOW TO ATTACH YOUR PRICE TAGS:
Once you have created your price tags you can click on the print tags link and follow the directions to print out your tags. You must have Adobe Acrobat on your computer in order to print out the tags. The tags need to be printed out on WHITE CARDSTOCK ONLY. The cardstock should be 60-67 lb weight. The tags print out 8 to a page. You can create 8 tags and immediately print them. Or save them as a PDF and print later.
Price tags can be attached via tagging gun, string, or safety pins. If you use a tagging gun please tag the item through the label or through a seam. If you attach the price tags through the front or back of the clothing it will leave a hole.
Onesies and socks can be placed in Ziploc bags. Please secure the top of the bag with tape. The price tag can then be taped to the front of the bag; tape only across the top half of the tag, so the scanner can read the bottom half of the tag.
Toys and Equipment
The best way to attach the price tag to toys / equipment is to tape the tag to the item. Remember to only tape the top half of the tag so the scanner can easily read the bottom half. Board puzzles are best sold using clear plastic wrap to hold the pieces onto the board. Then tape the tag to the outside of the plastic wrap. For toys with small pieces use Ziploc bags and place the price tag on the outside of the bag.
DO NOT put tape over the bar code section of the tag and do not use a highlighter anywhere on the lower half of the tag. You cannot change the price of an item once the tag is created. Price your items to sell.
