Well, it’s finally here…one week before Receiving begins!  WhooHoo!  Thank You to all those who brought by hangers!  We have a nice collection now.  If you are in need, we have some on the “porch”.  Email me for the address.  Please take only what you need.  Reminder: wire hangers only.  The plastic ones break and take up more room.  Another reminder:  our new location is the old Office Max building where Moe’s is now located.  Reminder 3:  We will make cardstock available to you (10 sheets for $1) if you need some.  The tags print out 8 per page, so plan accordingly.  If you need us to print tags for you, you will have to be finished before receiving begins and the price increases for that.  Please me mindful of how you are hanging your clothing items…use the website for all the tips (“consignors” “inventory requirements”)…if you need pins, we may have some of those available too (safety or straight)…PLEASE NO TINY GOLD SAFETY PINS!  These cause us to go grey and bleed especially in the fall.winter sale…they hold NOTHING:).  There is a picture on “inventory requirements” of how the garment should look once hung and tagged.  Please notice where the tag goes and the direction of the hanger.  Pants must be pinned to the top of the hanger…we know how difficult this is for winter pants (especially jeans), but we promise it will help sell (especially if you use the wire hangers with the tube at the bottom)…presentation is as important as pricing.  Final reminder:  Please make sure your large items have not been recalled.  All booster seats and carseats will be inspected for “expiration date”.  Drop side cribs are not resellable.  Be mindful of recalled items.  there is a link online for you to use to check.  The infant toys and accessories are recalled the most.

Lastly, there are a couple of you out there that think like me (sorry).  I wait until the last possible moment and then bring my items when the kiddos are not looking.  For those of you Lee County families, Monday is normally the crazy receiving day when it is NOT the first day of school.  Please know that if you wait until Monday, there will probably be a wait.  Plan accordingly.  For those of you who cannot find a sitter while you receive, please do your best to keep the children with you.  There are very few children who are able to resist the temptation to not touch in this environment.  Remember, tags are only taped on and you work hard to get everything in great sellable condition…so do others.  PLEASE do your best to help us out.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask.  We do our best to answer as soon as possible.

Have a great (and productive) weekend!

Dee and Renee
