How to Tag for an In-Person Sale

Quality Control

Please check clothing for stains, holes, missing buttons/snaps, broken zippers, fading etc.

Clothing Standards

Clothes should be freshly laundered, pressed and neatly hung.

Toys & Equipment

Toys and baby equipment should be clean, complete, working and include batteries (if applicable).

If you are questioning whether or not we will accept an item,
you should probably leave it home.

$3.00 Item Limit

All items must be priced $3.00 or more starting February 2024. This includes clothing, toys, books, shoes and supplies. Often times you will come across a quality item that is worth less than $3, these items may be bundled together. If your single, hanging, clothing item cannot bring $3.00 on it’s own, pair it with something similar and THE SAME SIZE that will bring it to this amount. Books and toys may also be bundled together in ziplock bags to create a higher value.

Large & Heavy Item Tags

New in Spring 2024.  Very large and heavy items must be tagged with the ‘Barcode Label Tag’.  These tags should be placed on large equipment (strollers, high chairs, pack n plays, bassinets), heavy toys, and large outdoor equipment.  Please do NOT place on items that are light and can easily be carried.  They are not needed to activity tables, toy sets, popup tents, etc.  If you aren’t sure please feel free to ask us before drop-off or post in our Facebook Consignor group!  These tags are generated in your tagging account.  You’ll simply choose the ‘Barcode Label Tag’ for those items instead of a regular tag.

Tagging Supplies

  • White card stock (or very light color) NO PAPER.
  • Safety pins or clothing tagging gun (see above to purchase)
  • Plastic zip or slide lock bags (To hold accessories/parts)
  • Packing tape, masking tape and/or scotch tape as needed to secure tags, parts or bags of accessories.
  • String, zip ties (find at most hardware or home improvement stores), or ribbon (to attach tags to toys, equipment, etc)

  • Child sized metal or plastic hangers for clothing (adult size hangers are okay for larger sized clothing, but please do not stretch little clothes onto large hangers)

  • Gather together all of your tagging supplies along with the items you will be tagging.
  • Separate your clothing by gender and size so that you have one pile per gender per size (for example one pile 2T girls, another 4T boys, another book, etc.). This really helps to make your online entry go much faster!

How to Use our Online Tagging System

  • Please choose a seller number to include the first letter of your last name + the last 4 digits of your phone number.
  • If you are a returning consignor, your consignor number will remain the same. However, you will still need to log in, register and pay for each sale you want to participate in.

How to Create Your Tags

Once you have registered through our partner site MyConsignmentManager for our TotSwap sale, you may begin entering your information to create a tag for each of your items. These tags will be printed out in the end – either as a group, or individually, whichever you prefer. Printing instructions are also included below.

  • Log In with your user name & password

  • Click on Enter Items

  • Begin entering your first item: Your Consignor ID is also your Seller number.

  • Under Consignment, select the appropriate sale

  • From the Size drop down menu, select the size of your item if applicable. (Numeric only — no S, M, L, XL) Maternity items should show S, M, L, or XL.

  • Next use the Description space to identify & sell your item! If a tag becomes separated from an item, we use this description to put the two items back together, this happens a lot!! You can also use the space to sell your item. Is it a name brand? If so, list the name brand in this space.

    If the item is New or Like New, list that information there too. If an item is marked one size but wears like another, point that out. For larger items, it may be beneficial to point out the item’s original or retail price. This may convince the buyer of the great deal they will be getting.

  • Next you may choose to Discount – by clicking here you are indicating that you want to sell your item for ½ price during the half priced sale on Sunday.

  • Now you may choose to Donate – Tell us what items you want to take home with you after the sale. A “Yes” will indicate that you will NOT be taking that item back home after the sale, and TotSwap will be donating the item on your behalf.

    NOTE: All items must be picked up during our posted pick-up hours on Sunday or they will become the possession of TotSwap and may be donated regardless of what is indicated on the tag. ALL remaining items are offered to the public at Dollar Dash.

    Consignors do NOT earn commission on items sold during this portion of the sale. Donations are made AFTER Dollar Dash.

  • Now it’s time to select a Price for your item – Minimum price must be $2 and increase in $1 increments. Bundle items together if individually they cannot be priced for $2 or more. Click here for more ideas about pricing your items. For pricing help, click here.

  • Next, choose a category for your item from the dropdown menu.

  • Finally, select Add Item. Now your tag has been saved to your account and you may continue this process for the remainder of your items.

  • This entire process will go very quickly. Once you have pressed “Add Item” it has been added to your inventory. You can enter some or all of your items at once, that is up to you. By selecting Manage Inventory you can view and/or make changes to your tags.

  • You may also select Print Tags to print out the required barcoded tag to attach to your item. You can choose to either print your tags all at once or you can do a little bit at a time, it’s up to you. For most printers, you will need to feed your cardstock into the printer one page at a time. Each sheet will print 8 tags which you will need to cut apart on the lines as indicated on the page.

  • If you are bringing a large item- stroller, pack n play, bike, bouncy seat, etc. Chose the BARCODE Tag option to print a large tag for the item.

  • Do not make handwritten changes or corrections to your tags. Make a new tag if you make a mistake or change your mind about a price.
