Hanger & Price Tag Guidelines

  1. Clothing must be hung with the HANGER facing the left sleeve looking at item.
  2. If the item includes more than 1 piece (ex. a shirt and pants set), all pieces must be pinned together
  3. SAFETY PIN (pins 1in or larger) or GUN TAG the price tag in the FRONT RIGHT SHOULDER SEAM of the garment (looking at item).
  4. Clearly write the PRICE, SIZE, NUMBER of PIECES, and DESCRIPTION.
  5. WRITE Boy, Girl, Maternity, or Miscellaneous.
  6. DESCRIPTION should include color, brand, and what the item is. This information will help locate your item if the tag becomes separated.
  7. Price must be listed in whole dollar increments without decimals (ex. list 5 NOT 5.00).

PRICES should be conservative in order to sell quickly. A helpful gauge would be to price an item 1/3 of the new price if the item is NEW or in EXCELLENT condition or 1/4 of the new price for GOOD condition. Items priced at 1/4 and under sell more quickly.

NOTE: We regret that Pay It Forward Kid’s Clothing & Toy Sale does not have time nor space to store and keep track of each seller’s boxes and containers.
