Pass It On Children's Consignment Sale

New and Gently Worn Children's Items at Bargain Prices!

Tagging and Preparation Instructions

THE LAST DAY TO ENTER ITEMS, MAKE DROP OFF APPOINTMENTS etc. is SATURDAY, October 9, 2021, at 11:00 PM (No exceptions!)

Please note ALL consignors will need to enter their items online. Returning and New Consignors must read the Consignor Agreement, agree to the terms and then register for the sale first before you can begin entering your tags. 

Supplies Required

  • Light-colored Cardstock/Coverstock (60-67 LB) to print your bar-coded cards on (10 cards will print to each page). You can use scissors to cut these out, a scrapbooking paper cutter or go to Staples and use their large paper cutter.

  • Wire hangers (No plastic hangers even for infant sizes)

  • One inch or larger Safety Pins and/or a tagging gun. (Tag on a seam or on a tag in the clothing piece)

  • Zip ties, clear packing tape, ribbon, or string  for items you can't pin

  • Plastic zip or slide lock bags (to hold accessories/parts)

  1. Gather your items in a neat pile beside your computer.  To make inputting the easiest consignors want to separate clothing by gender and size.  For example have 1 pile of 3T girls, 1 pile of 4T boys and 1 pile of books.

    *This can be done in stages, it doesn't all need to be done at once. When you are ready to print your tags make sure your computer is allowing pop-ups. The tags pop up in a new window so you need to enable that feature. Please make sure your bar codes look readable.


    Information on Tags
    1. Consignor ID - This will be a numerical # that will be assigned to you by our tagging service and will remain the same for future events.

    2. Size - (Numerical Only no S, M, L XL for any items) Tags with S, M, etc. are often placed in the wrong size and they don't sell.

      3-6 months
      6-9 months
      9-12 months
      12 months

      2T, 3T, 4T, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 12, 14, 16 (18 and 20 boys)
      Juniors for girls (Sizes 0, 1, 3, etc.) 
      Please leave the size blank and put Juniors and the size in the description.  There was confusion about whether it was a 7 junior or 7 girls so this will alleviate this problem.

    3. Description -Use this space to sell your item!  Is it a Name brand?  New or Like New? A good description also helps Pass It On find its match if it falls off.

    4. Discount - Check the box if you want your item to be sold at 1/2 price during the half-price sale.  If the box IS NOT checked the item will sell for full price for the length of the sale.

    5. Donate - A "Yes" will indicate that you WILL NOT be taking that item home after the sale and Pass It On will be donating the item on your behalf. Check the box if you want to donate.

    6. Price - The minimum price on all items must be $3.00.If an item will not bring in $3 by itself bundle items together. PRICE TO SELL!  (The tagging service will give you other options for pricing but Pass It On would prefer what is stated above.)

  2. Please bring only items that are seasonally appropriate. All items must be in good condition, clean, in style, in working condition and free of any odors (smoke, animals, etc.) When in doubt..... leave it out!  Please see the General Information page for more details on clothing guidelines.

  3. Hangers: Clothing must be on wire hangers. (Some cleaners will give you hangers if you ask.  If you still have a need for hangers, I will have them available. The price will be $10.00 for 50 hangers. I will have 3 boxes but had to pay alot for them as they are sold out everywhere. Subject to change)

    With the hanger hook pointing to the left, like a? (see picture below) place the tag on the right shoulder if the garment is facing you, the actual left shoulder of the garment.  If you are using the Tagging Gun please put the printed card through the inside tag on the clothing or on the underarm.  Use 2 barbs to secure it, that means click the tagging gun twice. Pin sets securely together by hanging the shirt first, then turn the hanger over and pin the pants by the waist (see pictures at bottom of this page) to the backside of the hanger, with the pin catching the hanger to support the pants. (Both pieces can now be viewed without unpinning them.)

    *You will need to hang your clothes in the correct sizes at drop-off.

  4. Pins: Use one-inch or larger safety pins on the tags.  (No tiny gold pins or straight pins.) Place the pin horizontally in the space allotted on the tag and catch the garment twice.  Place sturdy tape over pin for more security of your items)

  5. Non-Clothing Items: Any nonclothing item - toy, book, video, baby equipment, etc. needs a tag printed, minus the size and taped to the object at the top of the tag, pinned to object, or zip-tied to the object.  Please use a strong tape like packing tape or painter's tape, the scotch tape does not hold. PLEASE ONLY PUT TAPE ON THE TOP OF THE TAG NOT THE ENTIRE TAG so it can come off at check out and be scanned.

    Toys do not have to be in bags, only small items that go with the toy. For example, if you are bringing a Little People Garage, gather the Little People and cars and put them in a Ziploc bag, and attach them to the Garage with a zip tie or packing tape.

    Group small items such as socks, bottles, etc. in Ziploc bags.  Pin the card on the outside of the bag.  Please seal the top of the bag with packaging tape to keep all items together. At dropoff inspection, any inconsistencies will have to be redone on your own time.

  6. To minimize Lost and Found items you have the choice of including your consignor # separate of the pinned/taped bar-coded tag.  Consignors may handwrite their # onto masking tape or print out their # using address labels.  If consignors include the price of the item on each label it will allow Pass It On a better chance of selling the item instead of just returning it to you at the end of the sale.  Attach to the inside sleeve or waistband of each article of clothing or to the outside of other items. 

    How to hang a single item.

    How to hang an outfit (2 items)

    The picture with a pink skirt/t-shirt shows how to hang an outfit.  You hang the shirt as you would hang a normal shirt in your closet and then turn it around and pin the pants.  This is looking at the outfit from the backside, hence you don't seed the bar-coded tag like the picture of the green khaki capris.
