Donate Unsold Items by White Tagging

Kids EveryWEAR Consignment Sale makes huge contributions at the end of each sale. Please choose to donate your unsold items! It makes a difference in someone's life! Remember that any items you tag with white cardstock will be donated if they remain unsold at sale end.

Donating Perks...

  • White Tag Consignors shop one hour before other consignors for full price (on Consignor full price shopping day only)! Pick up your early shopping pass at Drop-off with your tax donation receipt.
  • Tax Donation Receipts are available to White Tag Consignors! Pick yours up at Drop-off by showing us your white tagged items before you put your items out.
  • Consignors are welcome to tag a few special or high dollar items they'd prefer to hang onto with colored cardstock. So long as you tag the majority (90%) of your items in white, you enjoy all the privileges of White Tag Consignors!
  • Remember: Approximately 1/3 to 1/2 of our entire inventory sells during the sales to KE Crew and consignors! At least another half of what remains sells on the first public sale day! With rare exception does a consignor not sell the vast majority of her merchandise unless it is overpriced or sub-standard. Most of our veteran consignors allow their items to be discounted, make a ton of money and sell 90% of what they bring!

"We at St. Mark's appreciate very much your letting us come to the consignment sale to pull and take clothes and shoes for the children at Wilburn School. We relay to you the thanks of those children and staff.

Thank you also for the six boxes of elementary school books for teachers to use in their classroom libraries or send home with children who might benefit from and enjoy the reading of these books.

You are doing a great deal to help agencies trying to assist children and parents and teachers. We are thankful that you are willing to get in touch with and work with us as we attempt outreach to people at Wilburn School."

Unsold items primarily are given to:

  • Salvation Army (our big charity that takes all final remaining items after the other charities pull what they need!)
  • Catholic Parish Outreach (CPO)
  • UNC NICU
  • Clothing to Wilburn Elementary School - a lower-income Wake County school that receives items through the kind work of a ministry at St. Mark's Church. Specifically requested clothing is gathered for their “closets,” clothing kept for children of need. They even asked for underwear and socks as they say some kids come to school with no underwear on.
  • A Raleigh area women’s group that brings books for Chapel Hill and Durham county schools in need and also brings books to nursing/retirement homes.
  • Shoes are collected for 4 Paws for Ability - a Service dog organization that pairs kids with life saving service dogs and vets with PTSD service dogs. They try to find families in NC trying to finish fundraising for their dogs. We have raised enough to go towards two families so far!
    They donates monies to supply needed service dogs to qualifying children with epilepsy. They also support epilepsy awareness programs.
  • Bonnie's Book Foundation supports children's literacy by providing books directly to children who may not own books at home. They also support schools and other programs that serve at-risk children with grants for books and learning materials.
  • A volunteer that monthly sends a box of books to an APO address in New York where the military then sends the books on to US Troops serving overseas.
  • A Wake County High School English teacher for their special needs programs.
  • All books of plays are brought to a Wake county high school drama department.
  • Boxes of elementary teacher supplies will be delivered directly to the teacher work rooms in a lower income school.
  • Boxes of teacher supplies and books not as appropriate for the public school system are being brought to a homeschool supply store that has a place in the front of their store where “free for the taking” supplies can be left.
  • Duke Cancer Center - we donated well over fifty scarves and hats to the Belk Boutique who launders and then distributes these scarves and hats free to their cancer patients. They were incredibly grateful and had a low inventory when we donated, so they were thrilled!
  • Museum of Life and Science in Durham - Science items and texts were donated for their classes
  • New Life Camp - Raleigh - cooking items as well as engineering items were donated for their children's classes.
  • Orange County Schools - Various books and teaching materials were given to needy classrooms
  • Wake County Schools - Various books, teaching materials, and student clothing were given to special education resources there.
  • Duke Cancer Center - we donated well over fifty scarves and hats to the Belk Boutique who launders and then distributes these scarves and hats free to their cancer patients. They were incredibly grateful and had a low inventory when we donated, so they were thrilled!
  • Museum of Life and Science in Durham - Science items and texts were donated for their classes
  • New Life Camp - Raleigh - cooking items as well as engineering items were donated for their children's classes.

We are not considering new donation recipients at this time unless they can provide a team of volunteers to help sort and pull all donations with our other charities.

Top Ten Tagging Blunders

for Consignors to Avoid

Don't Forget 

We've created a searchable Items Accepted Chart and a printable Pricing Guide to help you as you tag! We are not accepting adult clothing at our Kids EveryWEAR Sales in March and September except Maternity and Nursing Wear!

#1: Old tags

Our new tags require you to enter the prices and your discount choice online. This will make checkout much easier for everyone and minimize your time at checkout! But it is so easy because you can create and save a pdf of a page of tags for $1, $2, $3, $4... and just print a new page each time you need one. Then handwrite the descriptions for each item. Or enter all of the info including the description online! Remember, as of July 2019 we require new tags with QR codes on them! If your items do not have QR code tags, they will not be sold. If you are taping the tag to an item, do not cover the QR code with packing tape!

Remember:  If you want to change your price or discount choice, you must retag your item. You can not alter price or discount choice with a pen! You can print QR stickers on our print tag page for each price point and use those to change prices and discounts.

 

#2: Not checking our Items Accepted Chart

We have this handy dandy Items Accepted Chart. Please refer to it each sale. There have been some changes this year. Please refer to this chart when you begin tagging for each sale so you don't waste your time tagging things we won't accept!

 #3: Tagging the hanger

I don't care if you're Bill Gates, $4 is a lot of money for a hanger. Clothes come off, so please tag the item, not the hanger!!! Speaking of hangers, be sure to check our instructions about hanging pants too. If they flop together on the hanger, they won't sell. Be sure they stay flat and look great. Merchandising is where it's at.

#4: Parts and pieces not securely packaged

Work in toys for five minutes and you'll be a believer! That bin of Legos will get dumped in the Dora bin if you don't securely tape the lid! Also, multi-pieced clothing sets should be secured together with a safety pin or cable tie.

#5: Lame descriptions or no descriptions at all

Your description helps us to match your tag back up with your item if they get separated. We do not sell items without tags, but we do make every effort to match tags back up with items without tags so that we can sell your item for you.

#6: Thin paper for tags instead of cardstock 

If you pinch pennies here, your tags will fall off, and then you won't make a dime. We require that you print your tags on 65 or 67 lb cardstock not regular weight paper. Shoe tags fall off especially easily because of the weight of the shoes. Put clear packing tape on the top corner of all tags before you hole punch and consider putting two layers on shoe tags. Please do not cover the QR code with tape.

#7: High prices

Be competitive; don't overprice. You're going to buy shirts for 2-4 bucks each, so pass along the favor. Ask yourself what you'd be willing to pay at a consignment sale for this item. We do have this handy Pricing Guide with pricing suggestions you might find helpful.

#8: Fear of 75% off

The truth really is that half of our items sell to KE Crew and consignors at full price! Truckloads more sell at full price to the public. If you price to allow a max of 75% off, the only things that will get discounted are slightly overpriced to begin with or items you probably don't want back in the first place.

#9: Attaching clothing to the hanger 

Do not ziptie clothing or your tag to the hanger! Customers want to try on your items. Make it easy for them. You want your items to sell, so don't make them hard to try on.

#10: Hanging in the wrong place at Drop-off 

It really doesn't matter how adorable your pink gingham toddler dress is if it spends the sale mixed up in the size 8 football jerseys. Yes, Kids EveryWEAR does a fantastic job organizing, but the more mistakes you or your helpers make when placing your goodies, the less chance you have of selling them. Two rules: Hang to the right of the size sign as you face the rack and size up! That means a tag that says 6-9 months belongs on the 9 month rack. There is an additional $10 fee per ten clothing items we correct or that we have to pull because they are stained/torn/off-season.

Now you are ready to print your tags and start tagging!

Consignors - Please read the following information carefully:

Please be very selective in choosing what adult clothing items to consign at the EverythingELSE Sale, limiting your consigned items to the best of the best current trendy items purchased within the last three years, showing absolutely no wear and no stains.

Seasons Accepted

All seasons are accepted at our EverythingELSE Sale! But remember, adult and junior sizes are not accepted at our Spring event in March or our Fall event in September.

Sizing

Adult 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 adult clothing 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 Mens in front of the size. Please do not make up numeric sizing for Jrs., Ladies, or Mens clothing!

Also, men's pants should be labeled with the waist and length; e.g., 30x32 and men's dress shirts should be labeled with the neck size.

We will have specialty areas for TALL sizes.

Preparing for Drop-off

At Drop-off, you will hang your adult clothing on their designated racks by category. See categories and size listings on our Drop-off page. We suggest sorting your hanging items by size and category and rubber-banding small piles of about ten hanging items at a time by size and category. This will make your Drop-off a smooth and quick experience!

Pickup

Items are not sorted at our Everything Else Sale, only at our Kids EveryWEAR Sale. The reason is two-fold. First, we offer a Rollover Option of all accepted items to remain in their locations for the Kids EveryWEAR Sale. Second, most people prefer to donate their adult items. Once tagged, very few people plan to wear these items again if they don't sell. We work with fabulous charities in desperate need for your items. We can give you a tax donation receipt for your unsold items. You can also pay for a Seller's Report (See Print Tags for more details about the Seller's Report) in order to estimate your unsold donated item value for tax purposes. Please donate!

Please prepare to locate any items you wish to pick up. Do not send someone to pick up your adult clothing items for you as it would be difficult for them to recognize them as yours.

If you definitely want to pick up your adult unsold items, you can use a very distinctive color/pattern of washi tape or ribbon or electrical tape and fold a piece in half over or tie ribbon around the neck of each of your hangers to easily find your items.

Unsold adult clothing items, furniture, and large appliances will be donated immediately at sale end if not picked up, so please don’t forget to get them at Pickup.

 

Late Registration

Registration for the EverythingELSE Sale in February is now open. New consignors who need a code can register and begin tagging for the Spring Kids EveryWEAR Sale also, even if you don't intend to bring items to the EverythingELSE Sale but just need a code now. Please register again when Spring Registration opens in order to get your official spot at the Spring 2020 sale in March!

We hope to not need to use a Late Registration period once registration is open.
