"Tagging" Your Items

We highly recommend you use a tagging gun to tag your items. Tagging guns make tagging quick and easy, and are less likely to damage items. You can find inexpensive tagging guns and fasteners (usually under $15.00). Veteran consignors will tell you it's worth the investment


You can find tagging supplies in a variety of stores or online retailers. We have set up an shop where you can purchase most of the tagging supplies you need at great prices and have them shipped right to your home. Visit our Resources page for more information or click on the link to the right.

  • Size-appropriate, sturdy plastic or wire clothes hangers

  • White cardstock paper (60-70 lb.) for your tags (Do not use regular copy paper or paper with a glossy finish.)

  • Plenty of toner or ink in your printer, especially if you have a lot of tags to print

  • Tagging gun or silver safety pins ONLY to secure items or to attach tags

  • (No straight pins please - ouch!

  • No gold pins as they don't hold up during the sale,

  • and no staples as they can damage clothing, are difficult to remove, and the tags rip off easily.)

  • Ziploc bags in a variety of sizes

  • Clear packing tape or masking tape. (We've found that Scotch doesn't stay on for the long haul.)

  • Zip Ties to pair together shoes or toys with multiple parts

  • Scissors

  • A Sharpie marker
