Tagging Service Spring 2020

TAGGING SERVICE

 

SIGN UP NOW TO REQUEST TAGGING SERVICES FOR SPRING 2020!  We will be contacting our previous Sellers first and then we will begin to help out Mamas new to the Tagging Service.  Please fill in the form found here.

Inspired to clean out and need a little help?  We’ve got you!!  We have added more Preparers to expand the number of consignors we can accept this season!  Please review the information below and if you would like to use the Tagging Service then click on the Interest Form at the bottom of the page to let us know.

WHO SHOULD USE THE TAGGING SERVICE?  The Tagging Service is best suited for consignors who have a combination of items.  This would be things such as baby equipment (swings, pack-n-plays, high chairs, etc.), large plastic toys (slides, outdoor playhouses, kitchens or work benches, etc.), bikes in excellent condition, and other large items in addition to smaller toys, games, books, puzzles, and shoes.  You are also welcome to include 150 items of your best clothing items and hangers for us to use to display them.

WHAT CAN I SELL?  Almost anything kid related!  Bring us your toys, electronics, games, books, bikes, and any other gently used baby, kid, or teen items that your family has outgrown and we will prepare them for our sale.  We will also accept up to 150 individual clothing items.

WHY USE OUR TAGGING SERVICE?

  • Keep your items out of landfills and help another family out!
  • Being a minimalist helps you to get rid of “mind clutter” while earning some $$$
  • We provide most supplies (we do ask you to bring hangers…any kind is fine!)
  • No computer work to enter your items
  • No drop off appointment needed during the week of the sale
  • Sit back and watch your items sell – no yard sale planning, dealing with annoying people, or unsafe meet-ups.
  • Our Preparers are our top selling consignors so they know what it takes to prepare AND SELL your items!

DOES IT INCLUDE EVERYTHING? The Tagging Service includes the following:

  • Materials – All tagging supplies such as cardstock, printer ink, tape, safety pins, bags, and zip ties.  Bring us your hangers! If you do not have enough then feel free to just ask friends, family, or post on Facebook to find them for free!  Any style is fine, including pant hangers.  If we provide hangers for you a cash payment of $5 will be due to your Preparer at the time of drop off.
  • Time – Your preparer will enter your items, tag them, and package them for the sale.
  • Delivery of any unaccepted items to a local charity of our convenience.
  • Storage of your prepared items before the sale.
  • Delivery of the items to the sale site on the sale week (you do not need to schedule a drop appointment the week of the sale).

WHAT IS NOT INCLUDED? 

  • Preparers do not clean, wash, sort, repair items, or replace batteries.
  • Tagging Service consignors are limited to 150 individual pieces of clothing.  Check your clothing well in the sunlight, remove ANY items with stains or damage (even small ones) and bring only your best!  If you bring us your best clothing and it is not stained or damaged, we will consider increasing this limit at future seasons when you sign up for the Tagging Service.
  • We will send you clear information on how to prepare for your drop off appointment, so please keep an eye on your email and ask any questions of your Preparer prior to your drop off appointment.  If the Preparer has to spend exceptional time in sorting items that do not meet quality standards, additional fees may be applied.

WHEN CAN I GET STARTED?  Using our busy moms Tagging Service…it’s as easy as 1-2-3-4.  Review this page and fill out the interest form at the bottom.  After we contact you to let you know you have been assigned a Preparer you will then:

  1. Register as a new or returning consignor and submit the separate Tagging Service Fee.
  2. Fill out your printed Tagging Service Agreement and then submit your payment at the link we will provide via email.
  3. Your assigned preparer will contact you in about 72 hours after we receive payment to set up a time for you to drop off your items.
  4. While you wait, you should get started right away by sorting your clothing.  Pick out the best 150 items, freshly launder them, remove stained items, and then sort by gender and size and store in bins with lids.  The bins help us to keep items well protected and spiffy clean!  Other items need to be cleaned, seat pads/liners/straps need to be removed and washed (you will be surprised how easy it is to remove and how amazingly well they clean up), and electronic toys must have working batteries.

*Remember to sign up for optional Crew Member shifts to earn a higher commission on your items.  See Consignor Perks here.

FEE STRUCTURE

  • There is an upfront seasonal fee for the tagging service of $40 payable online prior to your appointment with the Preparer. You will receive the link to submit payment via email.
  • The Clothing Tree will retain 60% of all sales of Tagging Service consignors.  The Tagging Service Consignor will have a base commission of 40%.  (This is a 20% deduction from a DIY Consignor who normally has a base commission of 60%).
  • Consignor can help as a Crew Member during the sale to increase their own commission. (Please see our website for details.)
  • Additional fees could apply if the Preparer needs to spend exceptional time to sort or clean items.
