Tag Your Items

 

All consignors must read & comply with the following instructions. Failure to adhere to the Seller’s Tagging Instructions may result in the loss of merchandise.

Please do not spend your valuable time entering items not meeting LBD standards. Our LBD Stain Team will be diligent in pulling items not meeting LBD standards.

1.  Tag:

Item Entry

-All items must be entered into the system by 11:59pm, March 3rd.

Paper

-Your printer will print 6 tags per sheet.
-Use only 65lb or greater WHITE or LIGHT PASTEL card stock when printing tags.  Do not use designer card stock that is “fibrous” or has a slick surface.
-Print your tags using “Normal.”  Do not print using “High Quality.”
-Align your print cartridges before printing your tags.  Printer cartridges in inkjet printers can get out of alignment, especially when you change cartridges.  This can cause the edge of the barcode to not be clean and straight.
-Don’t scale the printing. Print it at 100%, just like the tag generated.  If you use a “shrink to fit” option or change the page scaling to something other than 100%,  it can adjust the size of the barcode.

Price

-Price only in 50¢ increments (i.e. .50, 1.00, 1.50, etc.)
-If you change the price of an item or the half price designation of an item in the system, you must reprint a tag to avoid shopper confusion. At the register, we will use the lower price for an item if there is a discrepancy between the tag and the online system.
-ONCE SALE HAS BEGUN, PRICES CANNOT BE CHANGED AND HALF PRICE DESIGNATION CANNOT BE CHANGED.

 Description

-Choose the correct category and enter a detailed description of your item (ie.  GAP Blue Striped Sweater).  If your tag should become separated from the item, a detailed description enables volunteers to properly locate the item and allows us to search our inventory to re-tag an item that has lost a tag.
-Please do not use descriptions such as “book”, “shirt”, “outfit”, “jeans”, etc…

 Size

-Please note sizing. If shrinkage is a factor, please indicate on tag.
-Please do not combine two different sizes into one outfit.
-WE ONLY ACCEPT CHILDREN’S SIZING UP TO 14/16.
-NOTE: WE DO NOT ACCEPT JUNIOR-SIZED CLOTHING. However, we will accept sizes XXS, XS, SMALL, 00, and 0 from ONLY these retailers: Aeropostale, American Eagle, Hollister and Abercrombie.

Half Price

-If you DO NOT WANT TO SELL AT HALF PRICE on Saturday, please check the appropriate box in Item Entry.
-A large Red Dot will print on your tag to indicate the item should not be sold HALF PRICE.
-If your half price dot does not print red, please outline with red marker or red pen to avoid shopper confusion.

 Donate

 -When entering your items, please remember to check the Donate Box if you would like to donate your item(s).
-All items not picked by designated pick-up time will be donated. Details about donated items can be found on the Pick-Up page.

 Tag

-Attach the printed tag to the UPPER RIGHT SIDE of your garment
-Attach to the garment using a medium or larger sized pin, going through the card and garment twice.

 Bundling

 -When bundling many items together on a hanger, you may want to consider putting a handwritten tag on each item  (ie. black leggings item 2 of 5).  This procedure is time consuming, but will help ensure your outfit remains together. Please enter the bundle only once in the system and use the system generated tag on the main piece of the bundle.
-When bundling several hangers together, please use rubber bands, safety pins, or zip ties to keep the hangers together.

 Toys

 -All toys/items with SMALL PIECES must have the pieces secured in a ziploc bag, the ziploc opening TAPED COMPLETELY SHUT, and then taped securely to the large item.
-In order for toys/items to remain intact throughout the sale, it is very important to “child-proof” them for the general public sale.  Many, many little hands touch these toys/items.
-Tags must be secured to the toy with packaging tape or safety pin.  NO SCOTCH TAPE!!
-Please be careful as to where you are placing the packing tape when securing your tag to your items so that the tape does not damage a painted or paper surface.

Games/Puzzles

 -Count puzzle pieces before tagging.

Purses/Backpacks/Suitcases/ Bags

-Remember to empty out each compartment of item before tagging.

Toys/Electronics/Music/Infant Equipment

 -Please remember to include batteries inside those toys/items which require them. Shoppers will not buy items they cannot test.

We realize  the Seller’s Tagging Instructions are quite detailed.  Please remember all changes are made with the consignor in mind. As with every sale, we strive to improved procedures so as to better serve our customers and in turn better support our consignors  Please keep the following in mind:

 

“Any merchandise found not to meet the standards outlined in the Seller’s Tagging Instructions will be pulled from the floor.  As selling floor space is at a premium, all merchandise meeting LBD’s standards will receive priority.  As the sale progresses, if time permits, and space is available, merchandise not meeting standards may labeled as such and placed on a “stained, torn, out-of-date ” rack.
LBD is confident this procedure protects both the customer and consignor. As always, we encourage all consignors to visit the sale during Thursday and Saturday mornings to better understand the nature of the sale and any procedural changes.
