How to consign with Charleston Repeats:
Registration will open approximately 8 weeks prior to the Sale. Login through our website and click the REGISTER tab. Follow all of the instructions including paying your $25 non-refundable registration fee via PayPal.
FOR NEW SELLERS: Please note that the tagging system will assign a 4-digit seller number when you register. This automatically assigned number will be changed by Charleston Repeats shortly after you register, and replaced by a seller number that begins with a letter. This will be your permanent seller number. After this change, your permanent seller number will appear on the login welcome page when you login. For each sale you must re-register and re-pay your registration fee. At the beginning of each sale season, you may need to "clear your cache" and "refresh" your computer screen so your computer recognizes the new sale, instead of "seeing" the previous one.
Preparing to Tag:
You will need the following goodies to start tagging your items:
White card-stock for items that you will donate if unsold
Color card-stock for items you want to pick up if unsold (pastel or bright any color. No dark colors, please)
A good printer
zip-ties, ribbon, safety pins for attaching tags to items
Clear package tape
Scissors & hole punch
Masking or painter’s tape
Preparing to Tag Your Items:
PLEASE USE CARDSTOCK. Paper tags fall off easily and get lost.
Items with tags made on white cardstock will be donated if they do not sell. If you want to pick up items that do not sell, you must use color cardstock.
All clothing items must be grouped and rubber-banded together by size and gender for drop-off. Make as many bundles as you need, but please only one size and gender per bundle.
No handwritten tags will be accepted - all tags must be entered on our web-based system.
If your child's clothing item says "small," "medium," or "large," put a numerical size on the tag you make for it instead so we make sure we put it in the correct section. If your child was 4 years old when he wore it, put 4 on the tag..
Junior sizes are divided in XS-XL, with corresponding numerical sizes. Please use the designated Junior’s or Young Men’s sizes for all clothing larger than children’s 18.
Maternity is divided into XS-XL, and these are indicated in item category. Please use these categories for Maternity, even if your item has a numerical size.
It’s best to put a detailed description in the DESCRIPTION area of the tag, so we can match the tag back to the item in the event the tag falls off. Good descriptions also help sell your item.
If you pair items together, they must be the same size (don’t put a 2T shirt and a 6m pair of pants together!)
If a clothing item says "6m-12m," then pick a size from the sizes we use . Ex. put it in the "6m" size. The sizes we use are: preemie, 0-3m, 3m, 3-6m, 6m, 6-9m, 9m, 9-12m, 12m, 12-18m, 18m, 18-24m, 24m, 2T, 3T, 4T, 5, 6, 7, 8, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18, Junior / Young Men’s XS-XL.
Shoes are limited to 10 pairs per consignor. Sports shoes like cleats and dance shoes like ballet shoes do NOT count toward the 10 pair per consignor limit. Volunteers are exempt from limits.
Online Barcode Tagging:
Charleston Repeats is pleased to offer online barcode tagging for your merchandise. We have partnered with My Consignment Manager to assist you in preparing for this event. Unfortunately, we will not be able to accept tags from other sales. However, if you have participated with Charleston Repeats in the past, you can transfer unsold items from our previous sales to a current sale. With the barcode tagging system, each tag is automatically printed with your consignor number, description and price on it. Each tag will have whether or not you have chosen "discount yes" or "no" on it. Items with ND under the price mean you have chosen "No Discount." The MyCM system will create your inventory list and allow you to track your sales during the sale week.
Additional Charleston Repeats' tips:
Print a test page to make sure that barcodes look crisp and clear with no fuzziness and/or bleeding. You must be able to see the complete barcode and the white spaces in between.
If you are using a color printer, please choose "Black Cartridge Only" when you print.
Print on the "Normal" setting.
If you need more room to describe your items, feel free to handwrite a description on a seperate piece of paper or index card and attach to your item. This may be needed if grouping items together, such as books, and you need more room to describe or list out each item for sets. You can also print pictures of sets and assembled toys to help buyers see what’s included.
DO NOT CHANGE THE PRICE OR DISCOUNT INFO ON A TAG after it has printed. Charleston Repeats cannot determine if you made the change or if has been fraudulently changed on the sales floor. If you need to make a change, edit your item in your inventory, and print a new tag.
