  • If you choose to DONATE any items print those tags on WHITE CARD STOCK ONLY
  • Place all garments on hangers with the hook facing to the left (like a question mark?)
  • If you have a set, safety pin the set together before placing on the hanger to ensure they stay together. Keep those cute hats, booties, and pants with their partners!
  • ONLY seasonal items will be accepted- Spring/Summer for our March Sale & Fall/Winter for our September Sale
  • Attach your tag to the top right of each garment with a 1-inch or larger safety pin OR you may use a tagging gun (see photo example above)

  • Two piece outfits must be hung with the shirt on the hanger as normal, then flip the hanger around and pin the pants or skirt to the back of the hanger (through the shirt as well). This allows for both pieces to be seen easily and prevents pants/skirts from being lost.
