Use children's plastic hangers for sizes 6 and below. Use larger plastic hangers for sizes 12 and above. You may also use wire coated hangers as long as they are 'size appropriate.' NO METAL HANGERS, PLEASE! Plastic and wire-coated hangers can be purchased at discount stores. This makes shopping more pleasant for everyone!

First, PLEASE PUT YOUR CONSIGNOR NUMBER AND PRICE ON A PIECE OF MASKING TAPE ON THE BOTTOM OF EACH SHOE. Then safety pin the string tag to a shoe lace or through the shoe eyelet, AND ziptie the two shoes together so they do not get separated. SHOES THAT ARE TOO WORN, DIRTY OR HAVE SCUFF MARKS WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED. Shoes no longer are required to be in ziploc bags.... we encourage you to ziptie shoes together so they do not get separated during the sale.

Games should be taped closed. Puzzles, books, videos and small toys should be grouped accordingly and put in ziploc bags. Secure with clear packing tape and pin tag to the ziploc bag.
