    • No items w/ stains, holes, piling, fading, broken zippers/snaps, missing buttons, etc
    • Check items for recalls.  It is against the law to sell a recalled item, and your signed waiver lets TTT know you have screened them.  Contact the manufacturer directly or the CPSC.
    • Wipe or wash dirt from equipment, outdoor and toys, etc
    • Press wrinkled garments.
    • Lint roll items with pet hair.
    • Button buttons, snap snaps, and zip zippers.
    • Make sure items are in style/in season for this event.
    • Smokers, Febreeze and air out garments after washing.  If your items smell of smoke, your inspector can reject them.
    • Remove second hand price tags from yard sales or thrift stores, as they devalue your items and make them look unprofessional. Retail price tags, however,  are GREAT to leave on. They will increase the value of your items, showing that they are still new.

    7 Tips Every Consignor Should Know

    Go through closets, drawers, the toy room, garage, shed, basement, etc.

    Clean out the items you know YOU want to sell FIRST. Sentimental items can be placed in a bin, stored out of the way, and revisited once or twice a year for selling consideration.

    Create a Sell, Keep, Maybe, Donate, & Trash pile. Sort into bags or bins to contain sanity! Try to do this when the kids are not home. You can further separate and store bins by season labeling them “Fall Sale” or “Spring Sale”.

    Pre-inspect your items as you sort. Missing/broken pieces = trash/donate. Stained items = laundry/donate. Faded or out of style items = donate. Scuffed shoes = donate.

    Ensure battery operated items work and are not corroded. Large items need to have batteries to sell. It is a good idea to have batteries (cheap ones from the dollar store are fine) in all your items to increase your sales and ensure buyers.

    Once everything is organized, ask your CHILD if there is anything THEY would like to sell.  Since you already organized sale items, there won’t be struggles departing from items they give YOU permission to sell.

    Offering kids incentives is a good way to train them about good organizational and de-cluttering habits. Offer that they get to keep the sales from their toys for their bank account while the money they earn from their clothes will go towards buying them new clothes, etc.
