the Pocket Change tagging guidelines.

system at our sale. No index cards or tags from another system will
in and enter your inventory and it will automatically generate an
inventory list for you;
*It's important that you print tags on cardstock, paper tags don't
scan easily at checkout. You are able to print 6 tags on one sheet
of cardstock; you are able to print your inventory sheet.
*Print your tags & safety pin them to your garments in the upper
right hand corner as it is facing you (placed over the
heart). Please have the items hanging so the hanger is facing left
(so it makes a question mark).
*Discounted items: each tag will have the words "discount" and "yes"
or "no". We encourage you to discount your items on the last day.

How to Attach
Tags to Clothing & Hanging Items
ALL Clothing must be on hangers. Dry
cleaners will give you hangers if you ask. The hanger hook should
pointing to the left, and the tag should be SAFETY pinned on
the right shoulder when facing the item. Sets tend to
sell better (under size 10) than separate items, so match things up.
Pin sets securely together by hanging the shirt first, then turn the
hanger over and pin the pants by the waist to the backside of
the hanger, using two pins, with the pin catching the hanger to
support the pants. Both pieces can be viewed without unpinning them,
and this prevents lost items.
On larger clothing items, such as
maternity or dresses, please secure them with safety pins if they have
a tendency to fall off the hanger. Your items won't sell if they're
on the floor!
Pants or shorts sold alone should be pinned
at the waist, NOT folded over the hanger. A great way to keep
pants from sliding all over the hanger is to use paper-covered dry
cleaner's hangers. They don't slide and stay neat-looking, which in

- please do not use packing tape on
books and videos, since it usually tears the cover. Make sure that
videos work, and secure tag with two pieces of scotch tape, or put in
zip lock bags. If packaging multiples together in bags or tying
together, please write all titles on tag.

assembled onsite. Please make sure we know how to disassemble so we
may let any potential buyer know. Make sure to bring any tools you
may require for assembly.

put a tag on EACH piece. Fill out the first tag as normal, but include
"1 of X", where X is the number of pieces, under the item description.
On all of the other tags, write your consignor number, the
description, and "2 of X", "3 of X" etc.
write the PRICE on any tag except the main items' tag when you are
selling multiple pieces for one price.
