Tagging Tips

Click here to see HOW TO CREATE TAGS !!

Use cardstock to print your tags on.

We accept ANY TYPE of HANGERS that are size appropriate. Please secure safety pins at the seams of garmets, so it doesn't place holes, in example, the middle of a shirt.

Please don't forget the $3 rule when tagging (you can pair clothing together if you need to make it worth $3)

Use curly ribbon or zip-ties to secure shoes together  (or place in ziploc baggies, I find they sell best when buyers can see the shoes outside of a baggie.)

Use painter's tape to secure tags to books (so that the tag/tape does not tear the book upon removal.)

Toys

Toys are popular sellers at JBF sales.  All toys must be checked for safety recalls before consigning. Here is a list of the Most Recalled Items.

Clean all toys thoroughly and please test to make sure that toys and equipment are working properly. Make sure toys contain all working parts. Battery operated toys must include working batteries (these can be purchased inexpensively at the Dollar store).

**JBF McKinney now only accepts stuffed animals of name brands ONLY (FAO, Disney, Jellycat, etc) They MUST BE CLEAN/WASHED!! LIMIT OF 5 PER CONSIGNOR ONLY!!!!

Package: Keeping tags and multiple items attached is essential for your items to sell. Bag all small parts belonging to toys/equipment in Ziplock bags and tape the bag shut with clear packing tape. Fasten the bag securely to the item with ribbon, tape, or zip ties. At JBF we recommend pricing items at 1/3 to 1/4 of retail.

Tag: Attach JBF tag directly to item with clear packaging tape or hole-punch JBF tag after putting clear tape on the top, and tie or zip-tie it to item. If you are selling a big packaged item, it is very helpful to attach a picture to the front so the shopper can see the contents.

Books & Games

Books - Only children's infant, board books, picture books & chapter books, please.  (Parenting books, school curriculum books and adult books do not sell)           

Video Games & video game systems (no Mature games, please)

Games and puzzles must have all pieces. (No “adult content, please.) Check items to ensure they are in great condition.

Package: Use clear, Ziplock bags or clear cling wrap (saran wrap) to hold multiple items together; Tie sets of books together with ribbon/string. Be sure that parts/games to video game systems (such as Vtech) cannot be separated or switched out at the sale.

Price: Prices start at $.50 & go up in this category, depending on the item. If you would like a high-priced item placed on the High Value Case next to checkout, please see a Team Leader during Drop-Off.

Tag: When tagging books, please attach your tag to the book with clear tape that can be removed without damaging the item. Blue Painter's Tape works great too! Please do not use masking or double sided tape. For sets or bundles of books, please place them inside a large zip-lock bag or wrap them several times with clear, plastic wrap and then secure the tag to the front of the books.

Infant Items

Nursing Items, feeding items, monitors, safety items, diapering & toileting items, rattles, and more. Please check for safety recalls on all items that you consign. No used pacifiers or infant toothbrushes, please. Here's a list of the MOST COMMON RECALLS.

Package: If item has multiple pieces use packaging tape, safety pins or  Ziplock bags to keep items attached together and clearly visible to shoppers. Please - only new pacifiers in a package will be accepted.

Batteries must be included, if applicable.

Price: Price at 1/3 of the retail price. Items in great condition tend to sell very well.

Tag: Attach JBF tag directly to item or Ziplock with clear packaging tape or hole-punch JBF tag and tie it to item or safety pin to item.

Shoes

A Magic Eraser works great to clean up shoes to look their best!

Tagging:  Zip ties or curling ribbon work great to secure shoes together.  Punch two holes in the top of the tag to run the tag through tie or the ribbon.  Smaller shoes or shoes that are hard to attach together can be put in a gallon Ziplock bag.  Shoes tend to easily be seperated from their original shoe boxes so please leave the boxes at home.

Bedding

Bedding sizes accepted are bassinet through twin only. We DO NOT accept crib bumpers or bedding with 'batting'. Please be selective when selling bedding, blankets, receiving blankets, burp cloths, and towels. New and barely used items sell best. Check carefully for stains; shoppers get very disappointed if they find a stain in a bundled blanket once they get home.

Package: Put bedding/crib/bedroom sets together in original packaging or in giant clear plastic bags. Arrange bedding sets inside bag so that shoppers can see all of the items as well as the design/pattern. Secure the bag so that items do not get separated.

Please hang blankets as they sell best this way! Blankets can easily be hung over the cardboard bar of a pants hanger.

Price: Price items 1/4 of the retail price. Tag: Attach JBF tag directly to item with clear packaging tape or pin to the item.

Bags & Infant Carriers

Diaper bags, infant carriers, backpacks, lunch boxes and kid's purses are great consignment items. Please inspect all items carefully to make sure items have not been recalled, stained, damaged or are missing pieces.

Package: Please zip-tie items to an adult-size hanger. Price: Price 50% - 75% off retail. Items in great condition tend to sell very well.

Tag: Hole-punch JBF tag and attach it to item with a safety pin,  ribbon, string. If an item contains multiple pieces, be sure all pieces are included and list number of items on JBF tag description.

Clothing Preparation

Be picky. Look at your clothing items as if you were going to purchase them for your children. No stained or damaged items will be accepted. Please bring freshly cleaned clothing items. Replace missing buttons, sew loose hems and seams, and clip loose threads. Remember to button all buttons, snap all snaps, zip all zippers before you arrive at drop-off. This will ensure that the clothes you are hoping to sell will look their very best! The newer the item looks and the better it smells, the better it will sell.

Hangers : Please hang clothes so the hanger hook points to the left (like a question mark). Please hang size 0-4 clothing on child-size hangers if possible. Infant clothes hung on adult hangers makes it very hard for a shopper to see its true size. You want your item to sell and look the best it can! Clothing that falls off the hanger onto the floor does not sell well-or at all! Old Navy and many outlet stores are great places to get free hangers. Wal-Mart & Target sell child-size plastic tube hangers at a great price.

Clothing Sets: Sets tend to sell better (under size 6) so match things up if you can. Again, all garments should be hung with the hanger hook pointing left (hanger should resemble a question mark when looking at the front of item). Safety pin to attach clothing sets securely with bottom garment hung on the backside of the shirt at the top of the hanger. This is the best way so both pieces can be viewed without separating them.Onesies and Sleepers must be hung on a hanger.  Clothing items in baggies will be charged $1.00 per bag to be put on a hanger and tagged.

Sports Uniform Shirts and Tshirts:  We can NOT accept personalized little league sports shirts, Upwards, Vacation Bible School, Elementary spirit wear type shirts.  These types of clothing items will not sell!

Pants/Shorts : Pant-clip hangers are great but if you use a standard hanger, simply use two safety pins to attach the waist of the pants to the top part of the hanger ( the 2 slanted sides), then place tape over the pins to prevent sliding.

Price: Remember hanging items need to start at $3. If your single hanging item will not bring $3 then match it will something else to bring your starting price to $3. Make sure you match items of the SAME SIZE!

Tag: Attach tag with a safety pin to the label or upper right of the shirt or upper right front of pants. You can place a piece of clear tape over the pin for extra security.

Kids are expensive and they grow fast, so we created a community event where families can come together to sell the things their kids are no longer using and buy what they need at 50-90% off retail. Why not let other families purchase these items at greatly reduced costs and earn cash from these investments? Whatever items don't sell are donated to our amazing charity partner! JBF is a win-win for everyone!
