Here are some guidelines to help as you prepare your items for the sale. Click here to see what is acceptable and not acceptable for the sale.

Supplies Needed

HANGERS – in order to protect your clothing items we only accept plastic hangers. Find plastic hangers at Wal-Mart, Target, Dollar Stores. Retail plastic hangers are acceptable too.

STRING TAGS – Avery White Marking Tags Strung (size 1.75 x 1.093 inches) are required on each item to affix our barcode labels to. You can find these at Wal-Mart, office supply stores, Rhea Lana Store (link) or large quantities may be purchased from Amazon.

You’ll also need re-sealable bags (for shoes, small toys, etc…), masking tape, scotch tape, sharpie, and safety pins. For large quantities of quality safety pins we recommend ordering from Cleaners Supply .

If you would like to print your barcodes at home you’ll need adhesive address labels size 1” X 2 5/8” (30 up). We recommend ordering from Amazon Here. Please note: all labels printed at home MUST be printed in color.


The better they look, the better they sell! Please take time to wash and iron your clothes if necessary. Please check for stains, broken zippers, torn hemlines, etc. Our inspectors will be double checking at the store and will not receive any item that is not in excellent, "LIKE NEW," condition. Use children's plastic hangers for sizes 6 and below. Use larger plastic hangers for sizes 8 and above. You may also use wire coated hangers as long as they are 'size appropriate and bent at the tip of the hook. No metal/wire hangers! Plastic and wire-coated hangers can be purchased at discount stores. You may be able to obtain hangers at Walmart, Old Navy, Kohl's, etc at the end of each day before they throw them out. THEY ARE FREE!!

We are receiving SPRING/SUMMER clothing. We always accept Children's, Junior and Maternity clothing. Don't forget, swimwear and swim related items, Easter, 4th of July and summer themed clothing, outdoor play toys, and sporting goods equipment!
Save your Thanksgiving & Christmas outfits etc for the Fall Event.

Please group items together so that they will equal a value of at least $3.00. They may be pinned together on a hanger or use a rubber band to group hangers.

Pants are ideally hung with a clip hanger. This can hang alone, or have the loop at the top that hangs over the shirt hanger. If you are using a regular hanger for pants, make sure they are pinned, not folded over, as they tend to end up on the floor.

Sets may be hung with "set" hangers to display them nicely. This is a hanger that is made for 2 or more pieces, or a regular hanger for the top and and "pant" hanger for the bottom which either loops around the shirt hangers hook, or rubber band the two pieces hangers together. All pieces need to be visible while hanging together.


Please only bring your like-new shoes! First, put your consignor number and price on masking tape on the bottom of the shoes. Then safety pin the price tag to a shoe lace or through the shoe eyelet. Put the shoes and price tag BOTH INSIDE a Ziploc bag. We are only accepting SPRING/SUMMER shoes- boots, all athletic shoes, slippers, closed toed dress shoes and sandals. Please save your Winter boots for the Fall sale.

Bedding & Blankets

We are only accepting kid themed bedding. No king size bedding. We are accepting all blankets. They will sell better on a hanger.

Brest Pumps

We are only accepting breast pumps that are new with tags.

Loose Items

Socks, toys etc. can be grouped together appropriately in Ziploc bags. Seal with clear packing tape. Pin tag to Ziploc bag. It also helps to write your consignor number and info on the Ziploc with a Sharpie in case the tag comes off during the sale.

Toys, Furniture, Equipment

These items must be clean and in working order (batteries included). Small parts must be bagged and attached to the main part very securely. If parts get separated, the item will not sell. Games should be taped closed. Puzzles, books, videos and small toys should be grouped accordingly and put in Ziploc bags. Secure with clear packing tape and pin tag to the Ziploc bag. It is also good to write your consignor number and info on the Ziploc bag with a Sharpie in case the tag comes off. Puzzles should be wrapped securely in clear Saran wrap to keep the pieces intact. TOYS NOT PACKAGED APPROPRIATELY WILL BE TURNED AWAY. WE WILL NOT ACCEPT STUFFED ANIMALS UNLESS THEY REQUIRE BATTERIES OR ARE DISNEY OR BUILD A BEAR. NO BEANIE BABIES. Large Little Tikes Toys and Furniture are in high demand! When tagging large toys, it is best to also attach a piece of masking tape to the toy with your consignor information. This will enable us to sell your toy even if the tag comes off! We sell 95% of Toys, Furniture and Baby Equipment!

Toy recall information- Due to the high number of toy recalls during the past year, we will be inspecting toys very carefully. We reserve the right to pull any toy that we think might have been recalled. To help us, please do not bring any toys that have been subject to a recall.
