Honestly, if you want to be really organized, you can make this Step1. As your children outgrow their clothes, or they stop playing with their toys, it's time to sort through them for Little Feet Repeats. Because the event happens every 6 months, it works best to have a system for storing your items during the off-season. Some consignors use boxes, some use plastic totes and others use a spare closet. Everyone has their own system to this, so please do it how it works best for you. A system that one of our consignors created for clothing is one of our favorites, and we've even created a form to work with it. Here's how it works: When your child outgrows an item, wash it for one last time. When you take it out of the dryer, hang it on a hanger and place it, face up, in a plastic tote that you have in the laundry room. You then take the clipboard that you store with your tote, and make a quick note of the item on your Little List. You then have a list, in order, of everything in that tote. Thanks to your Little List, you can then easily sit down at the computer and enter everything into your online inventory. Once your online inventory is completely entered, you print out your tags. The magic of this system is that the tags are printed out in the order that the items are stored in the tote, so you can easily just flip through the clothing and attach the tags to your items. You are then organized and D-O-N-E with your items until it's time to drop them off at the sale! Yay! Everyone will have a system that works for them, so please find what works best for you. The one MAIN suggestion we have is DON'T WAIT UNITL THE LAST MINUTE. When you wait until the inventory deadline date, you will become overwhelmed and more than likely miss many items that you could have sold to the sale.
Now is the time when your organization will pay off! It's time to enter your items into your online inventory system, put the price tags on them and prepare them for the sale! Inventorying:
The online inventory system is YOUR inventory. This is the way that YOU can see what you have for sale and during the sale, you will be able to see what you have sold! It's a very simple system as soon as you get in there :). We have a wonderful video tutorial of the Consignor Login area (where you will enter your consigned items). There's a wealth of information in this video so PLEASE take the time to watch it. At the 5 minute mark, it will go into specifics of entering your inventory. If you have already signed up for your Team Member shifts and drop-off appointment, simply skip to the 5 minute mark.
Every item must be entered into the online inventory system and price tags must be placed on each item. This is how you will get credit for the sale of your items! Through the consignor login section, you may print your tags. All tags must be printed on white, cardstock paper. This can be picked up from any office supply or discount store. We've found that Sam's Club is a great place for a large package of inexpensive cardstock paper. Each 8 1/2 x 11 page will contain 10 price tags, so a 250 sheet package of cardstock can last you for quite some time!
To attach your tags onto your clothing, you must use either a safety pin or a tagging gun. If using a tagging gun, PLEASE place tags in clothing seams. A tagging gun creates holes larger than a safety pin and we don't want to damage the items you are selling. Tagging guns can be purchased here, but don't forget to buy the barbs found here to go with it! If using safety pins, please don't use the small gold safety pins. They are simply not large enough to hold the tags on well. All safety pins larger than the little gold ones will work just fine. A good selection of safety pins can be found here. For information on exactly what you can bring and how you should tag them, please visit the Tagging Guidelines page. TONS of wonderful information on that page.
All items must be entered onine, tagged with the barcoded price tag and then prepped ready for the sale. Prepping your items simply means making sure they're ready to be placed on the sales floor. All clothing must be on hangers, battery operated items must have batteries, and everything must be stain free, hole free and operational just like new. Once that is done, you're ready to drop your items off!
PLEASE ALLOW AT LEAST ONE HOUR FOR DROP-OFF! Sign up for a drop-off appointment to drop off your tagged items at the sale location by logging into the "Consignor Login" section. Drop-off times fill up quickly so make your appointment soon. You may drop-off your items without an appointment, BUT consignors with appointments will be given first priority.
Here is the drop-off routine: Step 1 - Fill out consignor paperwork while all items are being checked for stains, broken pieces, batteries, etc. Step 2 - Take any items not accepted back to your car BEFORE helping the Team Members put your items on the sales floor.
Step 3 - Begin helping the Team Members put your items out on the sales floor. If you do NOT help place your items on the sales floor, your items will be set aside and will not be available for sale during the event. Step 4 - Once all items are put in their appropriate places, you are free to leave and wait for the sales updates every evening!!

Refer new Consignors The best source of new consignors for Little Feet Repeats is word of mouth! Now it's time for us to reward both of you. If you are a current consignor, and refer a new consignor, you will receive a $10 Little Feet Repeats shopping certificate for the current season. All referrals must be new and never consigned with Little Feet Repeats in the past. New consignor must drop-off their own items and sign their own consignor contract during drop-offs. You may receive a maximum of $50 LFR certificates in each event season. All referrals must be NEW consignors and they must consign at least 20 acceptable items, or $50 worth of acceptable merchandise. VERY IMPORTANT DETAILS: All referrals MUST list you as a referral when registering as a new consignor. They do this by choosing "Other" as the referral and then entering your consignor number and/or name at this point (if they don't choose "other" the text box info will NOT BE SAVED). ALL referrals MUST do this when they register. Unfortunately they cannot be counted as a referral at a later point. You collect your gift certificate when you check-out during the current season. Tell the cashier that you should have gift certificate credit and they will look up your information. Remember, the more consignors there are, the more bargains will be available!
