Item Entry

For the sale to be successful for all sellers, we ask that items be new or gently used.  We will not accept items that are stained, torn, smell of smoke, are covered in pet hair, recalled, or have missing buttons, pieces or parts.  We will not accept toys that could be considered weapons.  For a more complete list of items that we do and do not welcome please reference the list below.

*IF ITEMS ARE NOT IN EXCELLENT, USED CONDITION THEY WILL BE RETURNED AT PICK UP.  THE COMMITTEE RESERVES THE RIGHT TO REFUSE OR REFUND ANY SOLD ITEMS. *

All inventory is entered by the consignor in MySalesManager (MSM).  To enter your items, click here.  Login using your consignor number and password that you set up at registration.  Select ‘Active Inventory’ and then select the device (either “Mobile” or “PC/Laptop”) you are using while entering your items.

Items cannot be priced lower than $2.00.  Consignors can bundle items to reach the $2.00 minimum.  When entering an item, please select the appropriate Category and enter an item Description. Be as descriptive as possible and DO NOT use the same description for more than one item.

Consignors are required to upload a picture of the item. Only one photo per item is allowed. Make sure when entering your items that the correct photo is uploaded. To upload your picture, you will click on the camera icon then mark that the item is ‘Ready for Online Sale’. **If you do not mark that the items is ‘Ready for Online Sale’ it will not be included in the sale.**

If you would like an item to be included in the half-price sale on Friday, check the “Discount” box.  If you do not want the price of your item reduced, leave the box unchecked.

As you enter your items they will appear in your inventory.  You can see your inventory below the Enter Items screen. You do not have to “SAVE” anything.  Each time you enter an item, it is saved automatically in your inventory.  You can enter a couple of items at a time or enter them all at once.

Once registration closes, the committee will upload all inventory marked ‘Ready for Online Sale’ to our online store, Shopify. After the sale ends, the data will be imported back into My Sales Manager and reconciled. Sellers will receive an email letting them know they can view their sold items and begin tagging.

Tagging

Only tags for sold items will be generated. All items must be tagged prior to check-in.  To print tags, go to the quick link above or click here.

Securely pin tags with small SAFETY PINS to the front LEFT shoulder of the garment as shown above. Please make sure the hook is turned AWAY from the tag.

PLEASE NOTE the LOCATION of BOTH safety pins on the above picture at the top of the hanger. Pants must be pinned on the TOP of the hanger.  Make sure they are NOT going to slide down the hanger. For any clothing that cannot be hung directly on the hanger itself, it is important to secure the item with safety pins. It will keep the items from falling off the hanger and potentially being lost and/or losing its tag.

Bagged items (shoes, toys with small pieces, hair accessories, et. al) should be secured in Ziplocs with the tag taped on the outside in an easy to scan location. Use CLEAR packing tape and DO NOT cover the barcode.  Items with more than one Ziploc should have a tag tapped to each bag.  Toys with small pieces should be sealed in Ziploc bags and taped shut and attached to the largest piece.  Hardware used for assembly should also be included and attached to the items in a Ziploc.  Previous experience indicates that items sell better fully assembled when possible.  Please DO NOT place tags inside bags.  They are too hard to remove during the sale.

 


Drop Off

Drop off will be held in The Lighthouse not Tyson Hall. Sellers do not need to bring anything with them to drop off besides their sold items. Sold items should be tagged and packaged prior to drop off. Please notify the committee if you are unable to drop off during the drop off time frame.
