What is consigning all about and how easy is it?

A Kids EveryWEAR Consignment Sale consignor is YOU - smart enough to get top dollar for your gently used items in the EASIEST WAY POSSIBLE! If you tag at least $50 of items and drop them off at Kids EveryWEAR for us to sell them for you, you get a check in less than two weeks AND you earn an "early shop" pass at our exclusive Consignor Sale BEFORE the public shops! (Be sure to volunteer if you really want to get first dibs on the deals though!)

Why consign at KIDS EVERYWEAR in the Spring & Fall & our NEW special Summer EverythingELSE Sale in August?

  • Buy Sell Trade groups got you down? Facebook meetups always end up in no-shows? They haggle, haggle, haggle on your already great price? We are your one stop selling spot SOLUTION!
  • Just TAG, DROP-OFF, and PICKUP YOUR CHECK! We do the selling! You SET YOUR PRICE!
  • Don't even get me started talking about yard sales. UGH! Why hassle with the stress - hours of pricing only to be offered a quarter for an item! And rain? How's that after preparing like crazy!
  • Ever try consignment stores? Got nickels and dimes for your items and tons of items rejected?
  • We pay you 65% of an item's selling price minus a $12 selling fee to help cover the cost of our rent and equipment. You get the MOST for your items!
  • Consignment stores and other options simply DO NOT HAVE 5000 or more shoppers over the span of several DAYS to see and BUY YOUR ITEMS!
  • We take JUST ABOUT EVERYTHING! Our NEW Sale is our Summer EverythingELSE Sale and will have Adult clothing and accessories including purses, scarves, jewelry, and maternity/nursing wear, but NOT kids clothing and accessories. But it will have EVERYTHING ELSE! YOU NAME IT! Kids Toys, Puzzles, and Games, indoor and outdoor Play Equipment, even swing sets! Books, Electronics, Baby Equipment, Bikes and Trikes and Scooters, Large Appliances, Phones, Outdoor and Indoor Furniture, Tools, Housewares. Think Craigslist and FB Marketplace made EASY! No Hassling and Fast Payment. No meet-ups! You drop it off and we sell it! At our FALL SALE we sell kids clothing and accessories too but not furniture or large appliances. So be sure to know what to tag! In our Fall/Winter Event in September and our Spring/Summer Event in March, we take Kids Clothing sizes preemie to 18, but not Adult sizes. We also take Kids Shoes size newborn to Big Kid size 4 in our Fall and Spring Kids EveryWEAR Events, but not in our Summer EverythingELSE Sale.
  • Buyers can see, smell and touch the items, unlike an internet auction such as Ebay or Poshmark. So they buy, buy, buy YOUR ITEMS!
  • We do the advertising for you! And we do it like crazy!
  • Better yet, you won't wait weeks for payment, but will receive your check immediately following the sale!

"I can't believe you had checks ready when I picked up my unsold items!" JB

  • We've taken care of every detail - the advertising, the organization, even the climate-controlled indoor location! We've done it all for you AND you'll make a lot more money!

How do I become a consignor?

  1. Register. Check the box for consignor. This assigns you your unique seller (consignor) code and cardstock color. If your confirmation subject line does not say You are registered as a consignor, please register again and look for the checkbox to indicate that you'd like to consign. 
  2. Enter your items in our online system to indicate the price, description, and discount options you want. You pick the price and discount options! We sell!
  3. Print your tags on cardstock. This is 65 or 67 lb paper. Please do not use regular 24 lb paper as tags will tear and fall off and we won't be able to sell your items!

EXTREMELY IMPORTANT!!! We require specific colors of card stock according to your 4 digit codes! (These make sorting unsold items a much faster process, requiring far fewer volunteers!) Please see the Card stock Color List to determine what color card stock you will need OR just check your consignor registration confirmation page or confirmation email AFTER you have registered. Your code AND card stock color are both listed if you checked the checkbox indicating that you want to consign when you registered.

If you want to donate any items which don't sell, tag them with WHITE card stock so that we don't have to sort them at sale end. White tag consignors shop an hour earlier on Consignor Full Price Shopping Day too!

Registration Details

  • Your consignor code/card stock color will not change. You will be assigned the same code when registering for future Kids EveryWear sales. However, if you consigned with us and have old tags printed prior to June 21, 2019 (without our QR code on them), YOU MUST RETAG ALL ITEMS FOR OUR NEW MUCH FASTER CHECKOUT SYSTEM!!!
  • Consignors keep 65% of the selling price of each item.
  • Consignors must bring a minimum of $50 in items for our Summer EverythingELSE Sale.
  • Consignors may shop at the Consignor Sale which is scheduled after Volunteer Sales and before the public. If you would like to shop even earlier, we invite you to consider the many flexible volunteer options.

  • Consignors must read and accept conditions of consignor agreement upon registration.

How to Tag

Preparing Your Items

  • Check the Items Accepted page for our chart of what is accepted at each season's event.
  • Kids EveryWear only accepts quality, clean and current items applicable to the current season!  Scrutinize each item as though YOU were going to buy it.
  • Check for stains, holes, missing parts, etc. These are unacceptable.
  • Thoroughly clean baby equipment, including washing fabric covers to car seats and strollers to make sure yours sell.
    • A magic eraser is your friend!
    • Lestoil and Dawn dish detergent work wonders on grease stains!
    • Lysol wipes also are amazing to help clean toys and equipment.
  • A fresh laundering and ironing will help sell your item. 

Supplies Needed

  • 65 or 67 lb CARDSTOCK (white if you plan to donate unsold items at sale end or your assigned color). Please use WHITE CARDSTOCK to tag any items that you wish to donate if they do not sell! This helps tremendously reduce our sorting time, but most importantly blesses needy children. Please consider donating! See Donating Unsold Items for more info on who gets donated items. If you want to pick up your unsold items, use your assigned color cardstock (see your confirmation email or this chart).
  • Red pen if you choose No Discount.
    Green pen if you choose 50% off Max Discount.
    Use a pen to circle the price to ensure your discount choice is clear.
  • Black pen to complete size, brand, and description fields if you don't complete those online. *Remember your sellers report, should you want one, will list only prices and not items by description if you do not enter your descriptions online.
  • Scissors or paper cutter
  • Hole punch
  • Plastic hangers: Child sized hangers work best for clothing up to size 4. Adult hangers work well for sizes 5 and up. Wire hangers are allowed but not preferred. They snag fabrics and are hard to separate on the racks.
  • Safety pins (Safety pins are not accepted unless it is impossible to attach tags with cable ties as in the case of many new "tagless" tees and pjs. Safety pins are fine for these, but be careful not to damage delicate knit fabric! A tagging gun is preferred over safety pins but use cable ties every time there is a place to attach them to!)
  • Cable ties (zipties). These are available in electrical dept. of Home Depot, Lowes and Wal-Mart) to secure tags to clothing. Note: Cable ties are mandatory - no safety pins except when impossible to cable tie!!! Cable ties are cheaper, easier to use and prevent tag removal. See below for details on how to use. Northern Tool has the best prices on cable ties!
  • A tagging gun is allowed but zipties are always more secure! Attaching tags with TWO tag pins is better than attaching them with safety pins for items without a way to use a cable tie. 

  • Ziploc bags (assorted sizes) for toys, socks, etc. Large sizes are cheapest at Dollar Tree. Be certain to seal them shut with packing tape and attach tag to outside of bag. Items that can be displayed without putting them in a ziploc should not be put in one - for example:  shoes, slippers, socks, bibs, etc. Only use ziplocs when necessary. They make items more difficult to view.
  • Packing tape for attaching tags to toys, etc.
  • Painters tape for attaching tags to books and game/puzzle boxes (prevents tearing)
  • Scotch tape to reinforce tags at hole punch only on shoes, toys and heavy items as these fall off easily. It is unnecessary to reinforce clothing tags!
  • Long cable ties for hanging shoes - a string of two long cable ties is great for displaying shoes at the sale!
  • Rubber bands for grouping all same-size, same-gender items after pricing
  • Batteries to bring toys to working condition

Attaching Tags

When tags become separated from items, everyone loses! We will not sell items without tags because the consignor cannot be properly paid. Help us sell as many of your items as possible by making every effort to ensure those tags stay put!

Wait, what if I have items tagged from another consignment sale or from a previous Kids EveryWEAR SALE?

WE DO NOT ACCEPT ANY TAGS FROM OTHER SALES!!! You will be assigned a unique QR code at Kids EveryWEAR and you must use our tags! We have rewritten our checkout software and are requiring ALL PREVIOUS KIDS EVERYWEAR CONSIGNORS to switch to our NEW TAGS with QR CODES on them as of June 2019. Everyone must retag this sale! We have never done this before and hope to never require it again!

If your items are leftover from other sales (including ours), please evaluate their condition in light of Kids EveryWEAR pricing guidelines and mark them down in price and/or discount choice by re-tagging them! If they didn't sell last time, they most likely won't sell at the same price again!

See our Print Tags Page for an explanation of the four types of tags available: Regular (most used), Home School, QR Sticker Sheet (for old tags), and Duplicate Tags for sets as well as an explanation of the Discount Options and some helpful printing tips.

Finally TAGGING

Tagging clothes

  • ALL clothing must be on hangers (except undergarments including "Onesie" undershirts).
    • Sleepers, pj's, snap-crotch shirts, etc. will not sell in bags!
    • Undergarments are the ONLY clothing items that are to be in clear Ziploc bags!
  • Place all clothing on hangers with hook opening such that as you face the item, the hook looks like a question mark "?". See photo below.
  • Snap all snaps and button all buttons to ensure they are all accounted for and that the item will display well.
  • DO NOT attach clothing to hanger using cable ties. Use safety pins if you think your item will slip off of the hanger easily. Customers want to try on items before purchasing and cannot do so if you ziptie your item to the hanger.
  • Pants should be hung full length, not folded over the hanger. If using a wire hanger, run the safety pin through the thinner pocket fabric, catch the TOP angled part of the hanger on the back, and run the safety pin back to the front of the pants. Don't attach the safety pins to the bottom straight part of the hanger. The pants will fold in half and slide around easily if you use the bottom straight part of the hanger.

 

  • Separate all clothing into piles by price to expedite tagging.
  • Use the link from your registration confirmation email to go to the Print Tag page of our website. Enter your code and last name. Then enter the details for 12 tags at a time and print them on your assigned color of 65 or 67 lb cardstock or white cardstock if you are choosing to donate the leftovers after the Fall event.

Sizing

  • For children's clothing sizes, do NOT use S, M, or L as this means absolutely nothing from one brand to the next! Use only numeric sizing. 
  • Juniors, Ladies' and Young Men's sizing should follow the exact size written on the inside label. Unlike children's clothing for which you should use only numeric sizing, mark your tags for these teen/grown-up items with XS, S, M, L, XL, XXL or the numeric size AS WRITTEN ON THE ITEM'S LABEL and add the word Jrs., Ladies' or Men's in front of the size. Please do not make up numeric sizing for Jrs., Women's, or Men's clothing! Also, men's pants should be labeled with the waist & length e.g. 30x32. Juniors, Ladies, and Mens items are only accepted at our Summer EverythingELSE Sale. We do accept nursing wear and maternity items at all of our events.
  • Items with a size range, i.e., 3-6 months, 6-9 months, 12-18 months, or 18-24 months will hang with the LARGEST size in the range or compare them to other items and mark and hang them as the size they are closest to.
  • If you KNOW an item fits weird, a 2T fits exactly like all your other 18m items, for instance, label item "fits like 18m" as the size and place it with the other 18m items. Be careful you're not biased by the size of your child, but by comparable items of clothing!
  • You may leave the description blank online and handwrite it if you'd like. Some folks will prefer to print a page of tags of the same price/max discount or a variety of prices and their chosen max discount and then complete the description and size information with a pen as they attach the tags. This is fine. The PRICE and MAX DISCOUNT MUST BE ENTERED ONLINE. We do NOT store this information for you.
  • Use the description space to "sell" your item. Be sure to point out if it's a name-brand label, if it's new and has the original sales tags attached, or other important information such as the current retail price if it is a big-ticket item. Tags DO fall off no matter how careful you are. We make every effort to match tags back to items so that they can sell! We absolutely cannot do this with descriptions like "shirt" or "toy." The more specific you are the better! Clear descriptions also increase the security of items!
  • Attach tags to garments as you complete them.
  • Cable ties work best for almost all clothing items and some other miscellaneous items like Snuglis and diaper bags. Once a cable tie is fastened properly, it cannot come open.
    • Be sure to strengthen the top left corner of tags with a small piece of scotch tape prior to hole-punching to reinforce its security.
    • Simply punch a hole in each tag in the designated spot, slip the cable tie through the hole and loop it through garment label, buttonhole, belt loop, etc. Make certain to zip the cable tie correctly so that it cannot slide open! Check that you didn't insert it through the tie zipper backward!
  • Do not attach cable tie to hanger, only to garment, so customer can try the item on.
  • If there is no secure place on the garment through which to loop a cable tie (tagless t-shirts for example), use a safety pin through your hole punch and position tag on the garment's upper left, i.e. "over the heart". Do NOT attach tags to hangers, but directly to garments!
  • When hanging pants, be sure you PIN the pants to the hanger shoulders, not the straight bottom edge, to keep them from sliding around and to display them best. Pant hangers with clips are ideal. Do not fold pants over hangers.
  • For sets, hang the shirt on the hanger and then pin the pants to the back of the shirt at shoulders, catching the top of the hanger, so that both pieces can be viewed fully without unpinning or raising the shirt, with the pants facing the opposite direction of the shirt. This allows shoppers to see the pants easily and prevents them from becoming separated from the outfit. Be sure both items of your set are the same size, otherwise please sell separately! See directions for pricing sets on the Pricing page.
  • If you choose to hang pieces of a matching outfit on separate hangers (i.e. delicate fabric that may be damaged by pins), secure the necks of the hangers with a cable tie. Do not use rubber bands for this purpose! Make certain pants will stay on the hanger!

Attaching Tags to Multiple Piece Items and Clothing Sets

  • On all multiple piece clothing items and on large multiple piece items (i.e. crib and changing table set or car seat with 2 bases) write "1 of 2" and "2 of 2" with descriptions on each piece, but ONLY put a price on the tag on the most visible part of the set!!! DO NOT put a price on both tags, only on the tag marked piece 1 of 1!!! On the 2nd tag, write “See price on tag 1” INSTEAD of a price to alert customers and our detaggers to the other tag and price of the combined set.
  • DO NOT attach tag to hanger! Only to garment! Customers want to try on these items. If you cable tie the item to the hanger, they can't try them on and your items won't sell as readily.
  • Please use TWO tag pins if you use a tagging gun and DO NOT push the tag pin through the main fabric, only through a seam where it absolutely can't damage the item.

tag gun example

Tagging other items:

  • Please check for your equipment on this recall list. We do not accept recalled items.
  • Hang all Snuglis, Bjorn Carriers, Slings and Head Supports on pant hangers.

Attaching Tags to Shoes

  • Shoes should be joined with extra-long cable ties so that they display well at the sale. If you only have short ties, use one to secure the pair together and then add one or more cable ties to create a chain. This helps them to display well on our rack system. Add one to two cable ties through the one joining the shoes so that the tie will be long enough to hang the shoes neatly on our shoe rack.
  • Please, no Ziploc bags! Shoes in Ziploc bags or tight/short cable ties do not hang and display well!
  • Shoes must be clean and like-new with no scuffed toes! "Magic Erasers" remove superficial scuffs!
  • Make sure descriptions are detailed.
  • Please do not put a price tag on each shoe, only one tag per pair.
  • If an item is in a ziploc, please attach the price tag to the ziploc and use packing tape to seal the ziploc well.

  • Attach tags to jewelry. Feel free to attach jewelry to cardboard or the original earring plastic if you have one.

  • Attach the tags to purses, clutches, and wallets with a cable tie to the zipper or a strap that can't be removed.

Tagging Books

  • Check books for missing, torn pages. 
  • Painters tape is best for attaching tags to books and game/puzzle boxes (prevents tearing).
  • If you group multiple titles, seal them in a Ziploc with clear packing tape, attach tag to bag and list all titles under tag description.

Tagging LOTS of books? Pre-sorting into the following categories will make for a quick drop off! Because we sort our books so carefully, we sell a much higher percentage of them than other sales! Print this list here.

  • Board Books
  • Musical or sound-making books
  • Hardback Picture Storybooks
  • Paperback Picture Storybooks
  • Early Readers (labeled as Early Reader, My First Reader, Readers Levels 1-4)
  • Early Chapter Books (i.e., Magic Tree House, Junie B. Jones, Box Car Kids, Geronimo Stilton, Captain Underpants, Cam Jansen, Rainbow Magic, Horrible Harry, Barbie, Scooby-Doo, etc.)
  • Parenting (for toddler and above)
    • NOTE: Infancy and Pregnancy books go in the Infant Supply Department.
  • Chapter Books for Older Girls and Boys (This area includes series such as American Girl, Nancy Drew, Hardy Boys, Animal Ark, Encyclopedia Brown, Judy Moody, books by Jerry Spinelli, Judy Blume, Beverly Cleary, Andrew Clements, etc.)
  • Young Adult Books
  • Teacher-aides
  • Non-fiction
  • Biblical or Inspirational
  • NOTE: We do not accept adult-oriented books! No adult novels. No cookbooks. Sorry.

NOTE: If you bring your books sub-divided into boxes/containers that you do not want returned, you can just hand them to our volunteers for us to immediately take to the back to be shelved and you do not need to separate them into bins. This saves you time and helps us by keeping the bins from filling up so quickly. Thank you! 

Tagging Games & Puzzles

  • Prior to taping these items shut, count the # of pieces and write "all pieces included" on the tag. Blue painters tape is ideal for sealing these as it is less likely to tear delicate surfaces.
  • Be sure to wrap wooden puzzles in plastic wrap first before taping or tape ruins the front of the puzzle! Seal the plastic wrap with clear packing tape, but be sure packing tape does not come in direct contact with the puzzle! 2-gallon Ziplocs also fit puzzles well and help prevent damage.

Puzzles, games and all multi-pieced items MUST be complete. Assemble them or count items to verify completeness, then mark "all pieces included" on tags and seal to prevent loss.

Tagging Toys, Equipment, and Housewares

  • Consider providing manuals and/or internet reviews for high-dollar items, especially if they have unique features. Secure them to items in a Ziploc bag.
  • Make sure DVDs, CDs, etc. are in their CORRECT packages and seal with masking tape. Open DVD cases and puzzles to count pieces and to check content before sealing.
  • Open DVD cases to check content, close, seal, then mark "DVD checked."
  • Packing tape and/or cable ties are usually ideal for toy items.
  • Strengthen the top left corner of tags for toys with a small piece of scotch tape prior to hole punching to reinforce its security. Many tags fall off when people rummage through shelves and bins.
  • Toys get played with! Secure pieces carefully! We cannot be responsible if your toy parts get separated. If there are multiple pieces being sold together, secure them well.
  • Batteries MUST be included with all battery-operated items. NOTE: Consignors bringing items requiring batteries without working batteries may be charged $1 for each battery that Kids EveryWear installs in the item in order to sell it. Deductions will be made from consignor checks. Because Kids EveryWear is committed to customer satisfaction, we reserve the right to pull any items of questionable condition from the sales floor. We cannot offer returns, so shoppers are quite wary to purchase items that may not work. Dollar stores sell batteries.
  • Cribs, swings, and pack 'n plays MUST be set up by you! We have a 100% selling record for all assembled cribs!
  • Please print this comprehensive list of toys if you think it will help you at dropoff.
  • Ziptie electrical cords!

Attaching Tags to Hats

  • As with any item, if there is a label or a place to which you can attach a ziptie, use it. Otherwise, use a safety pin.

Attaching Tags to Socks, Undergarments, Receiving Blankets, etc.

  • Put in Ziplocs and seal with clear packing tape. Tape tag with detailed description on bags. Group like items of same size together so that they can be priced at a $1 minimum.
  • We prefer bibs NOT be in bags, so people can clearly see that they do not have stains.

Attaching Tags to Crib sets/Bumpers, etc.

  • Put these in their original plastic bags if you have that, tape over the hole punch area of the tag and then hole punch, and attach the tag to the zipper of the bag, or use huge Ziploc bags. These are available at Dollar Tree. Tape tag to outside of bag.

Housewares, Home Décor Accessories, and Similar Items

Williams Sonoma, Pottery Barn, Restoration Hardware, Ballard Designs, Pampered Chef, Creative Memories, Stamping Up, and any other like new, hot items you are sure will sell.

  • For paintings/art work, please tape tag to the front of all pictures and hang pictures on nails on walls in Housewares department for best display.
  • For all other items, tag as you would anything else.
    • Zipties are optimal when there is a way to attach them so they can't be removed without scissors.
    • Blue painter's tape works well; packing tape is also an option, but only when its removal will not damage the item.
    • Be sure the tag is adhered to stay, but won't cause damage when removed.
    • If there are multiple items in a large set, be sure to tag and label all items. For example, an out of the box crock pot with lid: put the price on Tag 1 and write "See Tag 1" as the price on tags 2 & 3.
    • For smaller sets of items, use ziplocs bags to keep them together and label the bag.
    • Zip-tie electrical cords

Houseware items will NOT be sorted at sale end. This is to provide enough staff to create a smooth sale. We do not have the staff available to sort Housewares. Please prepare to locate any items you wish to pick up. We cannot be held responsible for any loss or damage to your Houseware items, although we do our best to protect everything we sell!

  • Unsold items will be donated at sale end if not picked up so please don’t forget to pull them from the racks at Pick Up.

To avoid the crowds at Pick Up, feel free to volunteer to work the afternoon sort shift and bring your items home at the end of your shift or come the 75% off evening of the sale to pull your Ladies/Jr's/Men's/Houseware items instead of waiting until Pick Up.

 

Watching these videos should help you as you tag your items. However, they have the OLD tags on them and will be updated ASAP! 

Cardstock Color List

Note:  If your code begins with a 1, 3, 4, or 7, and you use your assigned color paper (not white paper) you may need to write the word "red" or the word "green" beside your price if you use red or green ink for full price only or half off only so that shoppers can tell what color ink you have used. Thanks. Feel free to use LIGHT PINK instead of RED PAPER for code 3000's.

Why do we assign cardstock colors? It helps us sort the unsold items at the end of the sale much more quickly. You will be able to find your sorted unsold items more quickly at pickup as well. 

Any weight heavier than 65 lb paper is allowed!

At Kids EveryWEAR Consignment Sale, consignors price their own items. That's one of the reasons the sale is so much fun to shop - the deals are amazing and prices really vary! Carefully consider the age and condition of an item when pricing. Scrutinize each piece as if YOU were planning to purchase it. Items that are priced too high will not sell! We suggest you price name brand items in excellent condition at approximately 1/5 of the original retail price.

Keep in mind your "competition". Will there be plenty of items like this one to choose from? There is always a plentiful selection of like-new infant sizes 0-9 months. They get little wear! So price these sizes on the low side. If your teeny sizes show any wear, we ask you to donate them to a great charity! Please bring only like new newborn - 9mo items to the sale and price them low. On the other hand, if you have like new, basic, brand name boys clothing in sizes 2T-6, you will likely get the higher end of our recommended pricing as we have the fewest items in 2T and above boys sizes.

A few pricing tips:

  • You are including them in the sale in order to "SELL" them. Do not over-price. Most single clothing items are priced in the $2-$7 range.
  • Put yourself in the shoes of a shopper and ask yourself, "Would I buy this item, in this shape, for this price?"
  • Try not to attach sentimental feelings to your price. Emotion will often lead to over-pricing.
