Pricing:

To Increase your profits:

*Only bring items in GREAT condition and in working condition.

*When pricing take into consideration age, condition, style, and brand.

*Price on the LOWER end for maternity, newborn and junior clothing, value brands (Like Carters, Garanimals, Old Navy), bedding and stuffed toys.

*Price on the HIGHER end for large play items and baby gear (in nearly new condition), large toys, name brand and boutique brands (Gymboree, Janie & Jack, Justice, Ralph Lauren, etc)

*ALWAYS price most or all of your items for HALF PRICE day. You can maximize your total revenues if you tag your items for 1/2 off day and end of picking up fewer items of your unsold items. Those who price items at half price receive, on average, a check 50% greater than sellers that price only for full price.

 

 

 How to Get Started and Quick Tips:

• Separate the items you are consigning into categories; clothing (separate by gender and then by size), toys, books, accessories, etc. before you start tagging.

•Group items together (if you want), like pairing pants with a shirt (as long as it is the same size), several books together, place small accessories together, etc.

• Enter multiple quantities for "like" items. For instance, tag all T-shirts together (that are the same size and price) and enter the total number of T shirts you have in the "Qty" field.

• Concentrate on toys and larger play items! We sell 90% of these items: strollers, high chairs, bouncers, swings, bassinets, exersaucers, outdoor play equipment, kitchens, tool benches, train tables, ride on toys, bikes, wagons, rockers, pack n plays, and toys, toys and toys!
