Preparing Items

PREPARING YOUR ITEMS FOR THE SALE

Golden Isles Kids Consignment Sale (GIKCS) only accepts QUALITY, CLEAN and Gently Used items.  We will be inspecting everything that is brought in to our sale.  We will not take items that do not follow our guidelines.  This is to ensure a QUALITY sale for everyone!

CLOTHES

  • LIMIT - 75 total clothing items (2 piece outfit counts as one item)  PICK YOUR BEST 75 items
  • Repair missing buttons/snaps and broken zippers
  • Leave faded, stained clothing at home
  • Clothes should be freshly laundered, pressed and neatly hung on hangers.
  • When looking at clothing item, hanger should look like a question mark.
  • Use child-sized  hangers for infant and smaller toddler sizes
  • Tags - pin on the RIGHT side of the garment with one inch or larger safety pins (no straight pins or tiny gold pins may be used).  If you believe the material would be damaged (as in the case of silk, very lightweight cotton, etc) by pinning the tag directly on the garment, affix the tag to the garment's tag
  • if you are using a tagging gun - attach tags through at tag or seam of the garment - we will no longer have tagging guns available on Check-In day.
  • Pants - pin by waistband to the angled sides of the hanger  (TOP of hanger)- don't pin them to the bottom of the hanger, as the pins will slide, causing the garment to slide and it will not be very presentable.
  • Two-piece set - first hang the shirt, turn hanger over and pin pants by the waist to back of hanger, with the pin catching the top of the hanger to support the pants
  • SMOKERS - we can not take items that smell like smoke, due to children's allergies - if you are a smoker, we suggest laundering your clothes in a smoke free environment and storing them in a smoke free environment
  • Make sure your items are thouroughly DRY before putting them in a ziploc bag or they will sour - we had a few of these issues in past sales
