PreSale Tips

It is almost time to shop! Consignors will shop Friday, January 30 at 5pm and their guests will shop at 8pm. Here are a few things to keep in mind as you are getting ready to shop and while you are shopping.

  • Make sure you sign up to line up (you can do this Friday morning starting at 10am, there is a link on your consignor pass).
  • Bring a large tote, collapsible cart, etc to put all of your items in/on as you shop. There are some carts but not enough for everyone.
  • Wear comfortable shoes/clothes.
  • Your pass is only good for you (one person per pass) tell your friend to call/text you when they get in at 8pm with their guest pass. Shoppers who are using the Guest Pass to shop at 8pm DO NOT have to sign up to line up.
  • Leave your children with someone who you trust so you can enjoy an evening of shopping and not have to worry about rushing home. 
  • Make a list of what you are looking for. If you want big ticket items, such as furniture, go there first, they sell quickly. 
  • Eat an early dinner or at least a big snack before you come if you are planning on shopping for a while. 
  • Have fun!
If you have other Presale tips you would like to share please leave a comment.

helpful tagging tips

We want to give you some tips to help you sale your items. Please take the few extra minutes to hang your items correctly or bag them properly so your items will sale. You can always refer to our website for tagging information as well. These are items from a previous sale that we wanted to show you to help you better hang/bag/tag your items for this sale.
 Jeans are heavy. Make sure you use big, strong, heavy duty safety pins to hang your jeans. You can get great safety pins from this site Cleaners Supply #2 Safety Pins. Place the waist of the pants on the top triangle of the hanger, pinning at the top so the pants/shorts can't slide to the bottom arm of the hanger.

Handwritten tags are NOT good. It is much easier to print the tags from our website. This item sold but it had to be hand-typed in at check out. The human factor of hand-typing cards greatly increases the chance of mistake. Always go through the web site and print your tags. We can also search the database descriptions for items that get separated from their tags.

When bagging items we recommend that the bag be securely taped shut with strong packing tape. No scotch tape or masking tape. The description should have a good list of what is in the bag (adding hand-written details if necessary). The tag too should be securely taped to the bag with clear packing tape or pinned very securely to a thick or doubled part of the plastic bag. Staples often slide off plastic bags and then the tag is lost. It is also best to type a description of your item, so if the tag and item are separated they can hopefully be matched together again.
This tag is handwritten and taped to the item. There is no price, description, or discount information. Computer generated tags are best and always pin your tags to your items unless taping it is the only option (for large toys or furniture). One good way to tag large toys or furniture, is to make a secure loop of curly ribbon around a part of the item and then pin your tag to the curly ribbon loop.
When bagging items make sure the tag can be clearly seen on the outside of the bag and that the top of the bag is taped closed so it can't be opened.

We hope these tips are helpful. If you have other tips or questions please leave a comment.
Happy tagging!

tips for consigning newborn items

There is no limit this sale for Newborn – 12months clothes. Babies seem to have lots of clothes and now is your time to consign what your child has outgrown. 
 
•  Make as many sets as you can,  shoppers LOVE entire sets of things like a Gymboree outfit with all the matching pieces.

•    When making sets, put 3 tops the same size, or 2 pants, or 2 rompers, etc together on one hanger.

•    Price your items for what you would pay for them. 


•  You can bring Ziploc bagged items, for example 3 tee shirts together or sleepers that are the same size, etc.  (Outfits do not sell as well in the baggies, the baggies will be put in large bins on our Linen Table. Please be sure they are pristine.)

 •    Your consignor number and tags work at all our locations. Take your extras to our other locations: South, Clarksville, Murfreesboro, Mt. Juliet, and Columbia


We hope these are helpful. If you have other tips leave a comment to share with our other readers.

need supplies?

You have one week until drop off begins. Have you started tagging and run out of hangers, pins or card stock to print your tags on? Have no fear!

Check out Nashville Consignment Supplies. I was running low on hangers for the last sale. I had already used all the hangers a friend saved for me and I did not want to go by a cleaners and ask for any (which you can do). I decided to give Nashville Consignment Supplies a try. I went to the website, ordered my hangers (for a very reasonable price), and a day later picked up my order. Easy, reasonable and convenient. You should give them a try.

Running low on ink and/or cardstock? Let Office Depot help you. Click here to see information from a previous post on the South blog.


Can't find pins big or strong enough to hold jeans or outfits on the hangers good? Check these pins out.

We hope this helps you get all your supplies so you will be ready for drop off.
