What Can You Sell?

Each event has specific requirements for what can be sold.  Sometimes space is an issue so we have to limit certain types of items.  In general for the crafting supply sales, any crafting suppply can be sold as long as it is in usable condition.  Be sure to check the event signup for any additional instructions.

If you are picking up your items, if possible, please bring your packaged and tagged crafting items in bins labeled with your name/consignor number that you can leave them displayed in at the sale.  Please try to group like items in each bin (smaller bins/boxes are fine too).  Items with several pieces should be bagged in clear ziploc baggies, tied or taped together.  The goal for all packaging is to keep all pieces of your items securely together.  This is a big sale with lots of people coming through. the more securely your items are packaged, the better!

Printing Your Tags

A great feature of our system is that you can print your tags in different formats to fit your needs.

We currently have 4 print formats:

What should I print on? Paper, Labels, Cardstock?

Remember, the goal to tagging your items is to make the tag as secure as possible on the item so that is less likely to become detached during the sale. We cannot sell items without a tag.

Plain paper:

Plain paper can be used for any item with a flat surface that can be taped over with clear tape.

Labels:

Labels can be used for almost any item with a flat surface to stick to - please try to put the label in an area that won't damage the item when removed (ie the back of a book, not the front).

Cardstock or heavy paper (non-textured):

Cardstock is great for fabric or irregularly shaped items, such as bags, shoes, etc.   You can either attach with a safety pin or punch a hole in the tag (not over the price or barcode) and attach with a string, ribbon or tag gun.

Be sure to follow print instructions on the page, especially when printing 30 to a page.


Attaching Your Tags

For non-fabric items, use either the label or tag with clear tape to attach to your item.

For fabric items, tags should be printed on heavy paper, if possible, and attached attach with a safety pin or punch a hole in the tag (not over the price or barcode) and attach with a string, ribbon or tag gun.

Make sure the tag price and description are visible and the barcode is flat so it is easy to scan.

Remember, the goal is to make sure the tag is securely fastened to the item, thus reducing the risk of it becoming detached during the sale.

Registered Consignors bring your tagged items to the sale location during the designated times.

Drop off times/location are available for each sale by clicking the name of each sale on the main page of this site or by clicking the Sale Details link under each event on the 'My Events' page (you must Login to see the 'My Events' link).
