We sell children's clothing Newborn through size 20 (junior size items, Abercrombie, Hollister, Roxy, American Eagle, Nike preferred) as well as maternity sizes. Our Fall Sale is All Seasons of clothing. Be picky. Look at your clothing items as if you were going to purchase them. No stained or damaged items will be accepted. Any items that look like "mom's" clothes will be rejected at inspection. Please freshly clean your clothing items. Replace missing buttons, sew loose hems and seams, and clip loose threads. Please button all buttons, snap all snaps, zip all zippers before you arrive at drop off. This will ensure that there are no defects in the clothing. The newer the item looks (and the better it smells), the better it will sell.

Package & HangHangers - Please hang clothes so the hanger hook points to the left (like a question mark).  Hang size 0-5 clothing on child-size hangers and sizes 6-20 and maternity clothing on adult-size hangers.  Clothing that falls off the hanger onto the floor does not sell well. Old Navy and many outlet stores are great places to get free hangers (they throw away hangers daily!) and Walmart & Target sell child-size plastic tube hangers at a great price.

Clothing Sets - Sets tend to sell better (under size 6) so match things up if you can. All garments should be hung with the hanger hook pointing left (hanger should resemble a question mark when looking at the front of item). Safety pin or use a tagging gun to attach clothing sets securely with bottom garment hung on the backside of the shirt, so both pieces can be viewed without separating them.

Pants/Shorts- Pant-clip hangers are great but if you use a standard hanger, simply use your tagging gun to attach pants to the top part of the hanger so the garment will not slide. Onesies, socks, tights, hats and infant mittens need to be in a clear zip-lock bag (you may group multiple items in one bag). Please be sure to label your tag well so that customers know if the items are short-sleeve onesies or long-sleeve onesies. Tape all zip lock bags.

PriceHanging Clothing - Put outfits/set together to price for at least $3.00; Start at $3 for basic, generic brand 0-24mo outfit. Add $1 each for larger size, name brand, formal, and heavy/winter. 
Non-hanging Clothing - Put sets together to price for at least $3.00, but acceptable to price for less (i.e., 6 pair of socks for $1.50). A general rule is to price items 50%-90% off retail.

Tag Clothing on Hangers - Attach tag with a tagging gun to the size tag or safety pin to front left shoulder of shirt or left pocket of pants/shorts. Insert the gun in a size label or inside seam NOT through part of the clothing (to avoid making a hole or tear in the clothing). Also, pull on the tag to make sure it is properly secured and will not come off easily. Please make sure consignor tags are pulled out of the clothing so they are easily visible to the customers. Using cardstock will prevent tags from falling off clothing.

Non-Hanging Clothing - Please use tagging gun or safety pins to attach tags to onesies, socks, tights, infant mittens and accessories. Be sure to also attach multiple pieces together. Then put these items into clear zip-lock bags.

Collect, Prep and Tag

Now that you are signed up to Consign at Sugar Land JBF, let's clear out some clutter!

1) COLLECT Go through closets, dressers, toy bins, book shelves, and don't forget the garage.  Collect all the outgrown, over looked items that are taking up space in your home.  Many of our repeat consignors have a bin that they place clean outgrown clothes into between sales to make this step faster. We tend to collect the toys after the kids go to bed :)

2) PREP Now that you have collected most of the items you plan to sell, more will always appear, you can get them ready.  Place clothing items together by size, checking for holes and stains as you go.  We recommend grouping items together on hangers for better success (2 t-shirts of the same size pinned together).  Clean toys and gear that you plan to tag, and check books for torn/missing pages and ensure all pieces are included with all items for sale.

3) TAG All the items that passed your inspection will now be entered into your tagging profile, the same one used to register for the event. You set your own prices!  We do find that our consignors do best when they mark their items to go Half Price. Once you have entered your description of the item (2pc Carter's SS red tee lobster, navy whale), set your price, and be sure to save.  When you have entered all your items, you will print your tags and attach them.  We have video links below for how to attach the tags.

That's it....an easy way to clear out clutter and make money on gently used items to help out your family!

We have lots of How to Videos above!

Baby Carriers, Slings and Bags

Diaper bags, infant carriers, slings and backpacks are great consignment items. Please inspect all items carefully to make sure items have not been recalled (check recalls here), stained, damaged or are missing pieces.

Package:  Please zip-tie items to an adult-size hanger.

Price:  Price 50% - 75% off retail. Items in great condition tend to sell very well.

Tag:  Hole-punch JBF tag and attach it to item with ribbon or string. If item contains multiple pieces, be sure all pieces are included and list number of items on JBF tag description.

Bath

Bath toys, bath tubs, tub inserts, towels and more.  Please inspect all items carefully to make sure items have not been recalled (check recalls here), stained, damaged or are missing pieces.

Package:  If item has multiple pieces use packing tape, tagging gun, safety pins or clear self-seal bags to keep items attached together and clearly visible to shoppers. Batteries must be included, if applicable.

Price:  Price 50% - 75% off retail. Items in great condition tend to sell very well.

Tag:  Attach JBF tag directly to item or clear self-seal bag with clear packaging tape or hole-punch JBF tag and tie it to item.

Bedding and Blankets

Bedding sizes accepted are bassinet through twin only. Please be selective when selling bedding, blankets, receiving blankets, burp cloths, and towels. New and barely used items sell best. Check carefully for stains; shoppers get very disappointed if they find a stain in a bundled blanket once they get home.

Package:  Put bedding/crib/bedroom sets together in original packaging or in giant clear plastic bags. Arrange bedding sets inside bag so that shoppers can see all of the items as well as the design/pattern. Secure the bag so that items do not get separated. Bundle blankets, cloths, and towels with ribbon or string like a package (be sure multiple pieces cannot be separated).

Price:  Price to sell! Shoppers are less likely to purchase these items used, so prices have to be low. Try to price 75% - 90% off retail.

Tag:  If bedding is in a plastic bag, attach tag securely with packing tape to the inside of the bag and tape the bag shut (bedding set prices vary widely and securing tags inside bags prevents tag switching). If bedding/blankets are bundled with string, attach tag directly to blanket and tuck it under the ribbon/string so that it does not easily get pulled off when shifting around during the sale.

Books, DVDs, Games/Puzzles

Books, book sets, board games, puzzles, video games, video game systems, DVDs and arts & crafts sets are great items for resale.  Please only bring kids’, parenting, homeschooling, pregnancy and child rearing books. No VHS or magazines accepted.

Games and puzzles must have all pieces.  (No "adult" content please.)  Check items to ensure they are in great condition.

Package:  Use clear, self-seal bags or clear cling wrap (saran wrap) to hold multiple items together; Tie sets of books together with ribbon/string. Be sure that parts/games to video game systems (such as Vtech) cannot be separated or switched out at the sale. 

Price:  Prices can range from $.50 to $50 in this category, depending on the item. Price to sell especially for books & DVDs as there are always lots to choose from at the sale.

Tag:  When tagging books, please attach your tag to the book with clear tape that can be removed without damaging the item. Tape tag to the outside cover of glossy books and to the inside cover of books that will easilytear when removing the tag. Please do not use masking or double sided tape. Hole-punch JBF tag and tie to sets.

Consignor Tips

Want to sell like a pro?  Our Consignors with the best sell through rate and the highest checks do the following:

  • They tag and prep only their best items
  • They price to sell, lower priced items that go half price are more likely to sell.  Shoppers are looking for a deal, and they check retail prices online.  If you are selling a shirt for $5, but they can get something similar for $4 and it is going halfprice, they will buy that item and might do it at full price in fear it will be gone by Half Price Day.
  • DON'T get bogged down by the pricing guide, and original retail!  Look at the item, what would YOU pay at a Consignment Sale?  That should be how you price.
  • When all your items are laid out and hung, enter your tags in order and keep the items in order.  Once all the tags are entered then print and attach, beacuse it will go faster.
  • All your tags are on, group all the clothes by gender and size, rubber band them together to make drop off SUPER FAST.  Do the same with toys, infant toys in one box/bin/bag etc.  then you can simply place the items by the signed area of the sales floor.
