Tagging Overview

Barcode Tags: JBF offers an easy-to-use online barcode tagging system, available FREE to all JBF consignors.  All you need to do is log in to your JBF Profile at www.jbfsale.com/nwtucson.  Once you are log into your profile click on Enter My Tags and you will go to the tagging site.  It is NOW all in one spot!!

IMPORTANT: Print bar-coded tags on cardstock. Nine tags, will print out with all information included.

Safety Pins: We recommend using the 1" or larger safety pins: no straight pins please. Also, remember that REALLY BIG safety pins can make holes in fabric.

Donating Unsold Items to Charity (optional): Please check the "donate" button on your myjbftags.com inventory if you want to donate any unsold items at the end of the sale. Any items not picked-up during the scheduled consignor pick-up times will be donated.

DID YOU KNOW?: You do not have to donate all items, if there are some you wish to keep if they do not sell. Remember, too that we pull all donated items FIRST during breakdown and all items are picked-up by our local charity, More Than A Bed.

Pricing Your Items: You set your own price on all items, but price them to sell! Generally, items sell for 1/3 to 1/2 of the original price, depending on name brand and condition.

Better brand names, unique items, or high priced items usually bring more. Ask yourself, "What would I pay for this item? Please use $.50 price increments only (i.e. $6.00 or $6.50 rather than $6.99).

You set your own prices. Remember hanging items need to start at $3. All other items can start at .50 You must price in 50 cent and dollar increments. If your single hanging item will not bring $3 then match it will something else to bring your starting price to $3. We also recommend allowing your items to go half price during the half price sale.

Participating in Half Price Sale Day (optional): In your tagging account, you can select "reduce" if you wish to allow the item to be sold for a reduced amount during our half price sale. If you decide not to reduce an item, this will be denoted by a star that will print out on the tag. A "star" tag tells shoppers that the item will remain Full Price throughout the sale. Please be selective with the items you star, since items with no stars tend to sell better on the discount days. If you are donating your items at the end of the sale, please do not put a "star" on your tag because you will have a better chance of selling them.

Chargers and Batteries: Chargers must be included with all power toys, as well as the appropriate working batteries. Make sure to have working batteries in all of your items, all rechargeable batteries charged and then secure the chargers in a visible place for shoppers to test/see.

Baby Equipment & Furniture

Exersaucers, swings, high chairs, changing tables, cribs (Manufactured AFTER June 28, 2011), strollers, bath seats, baby walkers, car seats & car seat accessories must be checked for safety recalls, must have all parts, and be in good condition. Children's furniture - beds (toddler, twin), desks, side tables, dressers, etc.  Household furniture - please see Mommy Mart information below.

Package:  If item has multiple pieces use packaging tape, zip-ties, or string to keep items attached together. If wooden furniture has loose parts, use clear plastic wrap to secure item. All furniture and equipment must be assembled during the sale. Batteries must be included, if applicable. Please bring a Car Seat Checklist (link) for all car seats, booster seats, and car seat base or infant carrier.

Price:  Price items 1/3 of the retail price. Items in great condition tend to sell very well.

Tag:  Attach JBF tag directly to item with clear packaging tape or hole-punch JBF tag and tie it to item or pin to the item.

Blankets & Texiles

Don't forget :  We will no longer be accepting Crib or Twin Bedding sets.  JBF will not longer be accepting crib bumpers of any kind.

Please be selective when selling, receiving blankets, burp cloths, and towels. New and barely used items sell best. Check carefully for stains; shoppers get very disappointed if they find a stain in a bundled blanket once they get home.

Package:  We recommend hanging blankets and towels.  Burp Cloths can be bagged. 

Books, Games, DVDs & Arts/Crafts

Books, book sets, board games, puzzles, video games, video game systems,  arts & crafts sets are great items for resale.   Games and puzzles must have all pieces.  (No “adult content, please.)  Check items to ensure they are in great condition.

Package:  Use clear, self-seal bags or clear cling wrap (saran wrap) to hold multiple items together; Tie sets of books together with ribbon/string. Be sure that parts/games to video game systems (such as Vtech) cannot be separated or switched out at the sale. 


Price:  Prices start at $.50 go up in this category, depending on the item. If you would like a high-priced item placed on the High Value Cart neat checkout, please see a team leader during Drop Off.


Tag:  When tagging books, please attach your tag to the book with clear tape that can be removed without damaging the item. Please do not use masking or double sided tape. For sets or bundles of books, please place them inside a large zip-lock bag or wrap them several times with clear, plastic wrap and then secure the tag to the front of the books.

Clothes

We sell children's clothing Premie  through size 20 for boys and Premie thru Juniors for Girls.  We also sell Maternity Clothes.

Be picky. Look at your clothing items as if you were going to purchase them. No stained or damaged items will be accepted.  Please freshlyclean your clothing items. Replace missing buttons, sew loose hems and seams, and clip loose threads. Pleasebutton all buttons, snap all snaps, zip all zippers before you arrive at drop off. This will ensure that there are nodefects in the clothing. The newer the item looks (and the better it smells), the better it will sell.

Hangers - Please hang clothes so the hanger hook points to the left (like a question mark).

Please hang size 0-5 clothing on child-size hangers

Clothing that falls off the hanger onto the floor does not sell well. Old Navy and many outlet stores are greatplaces to get free hangers (they throw away hangers daily!) and WalMart & Target sell child-size plastic tube hangers at a great price.

Clothing Sets - Sets tend to sellbetter (under size 6) so match things up if you can. Allgarments should be hung with the hanger hook pointing left (hanger should resemble a question mark when looking at the front of item). Safety pin or use a tagging gun to attach clothing sets securely with bottom garment hung on the backside of the shirt, so both pieces can be viewed without separating them.

Pants/Shorts- Pant-clip hangers are great but if you use a standard hanger, simply use your tagging gun to attach pants to thetop part of the hanger so the garment will not slidethat

Price:  Remember hanging items need to start at $3.  If your single hanging item will not bring $3 then match it will something else to bring your starting price to $3.

Tag:  Clothing on Hangers - Attach tag with a tagging gun or safety pin to the label of shirt or upper right front of pants. Insert the gun in a label or inside seam NOT through part of the clothing (to avoid making a hole or tear in the clothing). Also, pull on the tag to make sure it is properly secured and will not come off easily. Please make sure consignor tags are pulled out of the clothing so they are easily visible to the customers.

 

Infant Items

Nursing Items, feeding items, monitors, safety items, diapering & toileting items, rattles, and more. Please check for safety recalls on all items that you consign.

Package:  If item has multiple pieces use packaging tape, tagging gun, safety pins or clear self-seal bags to keep items attached together and clearly visible to shoppers. Batteries must be included, if applicable.

Price: Price at 1/3 of the retail price. Items in great condition tend to sell very well.

Tag: Attach JBF tag directly to item or clear self-seal bag with clear packaging tape or hole-punch JBF tag and tie it to item or safety pin to item.

Tagging Tips from Succesful Consignors

  • Gather needed supplies: white cardstock, safety pins, hangers, packing tape, resealable baggies, zip-ties and/or string.
  • Tag the big ticket items first, like strollers, high chairs, exersaucers & outdoor equipment (more bang for your buck & they all sell FAST).
  • Double check that clothes and shoes are in good condition, without stains, holes or scuff marks.
  • Position your hangers like question marks when looking at the front of the garment and pin the price tag on the right side.
  • Seal baggies shut with packing tape.
  • Presort clothes by size and gender for your drop off convenience.
  • Schedule a drop off appointment
  • Tell a friend - better yet, tell 10! The more you TELL the more you SELL.
