ITEM PREP

CLOTHING ITEMS

The better they look, the better they sell!

  • Clothing must be in new or like-new, gently-loved condition and free from stains, signs of wear and tear, and/or other damage. NO EXCEPTIONS! Please don’t be offended if we find stains on an item, it happens to us all

  • Take time to wash and iron items, if needed

  • BUTTON all buttons, ZIP all zippers and TIE all Strings

  • Plastic hangers ONLY (no wire hangers allowed)

  • Place clothing on the hanger so that the hook forms a question mark (?) when looking at the front of the garment

Hanging Children’s and Juniors Clothing:

  • Use children’s plastic hangers for sizes 8 and below

  • User adult plastic hangers for sizes 10+ through juniors

Hanging clothing sets or multiples items:

  • Put each item on a seperate hanger and rubber band them together

  • Do not use safety pins or a tagging gun to connect the various pieces together as this can damage the garment causing it to become unsellable.

Hanging pants & skirts:

  • Use pant hangers if you have them (preferred)

  • If you don’t have pant hangers use 2” safety pins to attach garment to the hanger

    • ​Attach on top bar, with safety pins towards garment center to prevent sliding.Safety pins should go through BOTH WAISTBAND, back and front so the garment doesn't gape when hanging.

Hanging Maternity and Women’s Clothing:

  • Use adult plastic hangers for all sizes​

Shoes

  • Shoes must be in new or like-new, gently-loved condition and FREE FROM DEBRIS, signs of wear and tear or other damage. NO EXCEPTIONS! 

  • Zip Tie pairs of shoes together (do not tie together by laces) - 8 or 10 inch zip ties work best (Amazon, Home Depot and Walmart are all good places to find zip ties)

  • Shoes that cannot be zip tied together can be placed in plastic/ziploc bag with the tag attached to the outside of the bag via packing tape.

  • Safety pin the tag to the laces

NON-CLOTHING ITEMS
  • Must be CLEAN AND FREE FROM DEBRIS (using clorox wipes or magic erasers work wonders)

  • Package multi-piece toys and other items together using ziploc bags with clear packing tape and/or zip ties as necessary

  • Battery operated items MUST have working batteries

  • Books can be bundled together using ziploc bags (DO NOT put tag on inside of ziploc bag).  DO NOT tie groups of books together with string or ribbon.

  • Games and boxed puzzles should be taped closed using (painters tape or masking tape) and non-boxed puzzles should be wrapped in clear saran wrap to avoid missing/loosing pieces.

  • Bedding sets for crib, toddler and twin MUST be packaged in the original bedding packaging or you can use the Ziploc BIG bags (Click here to buy Ziploc BIG Bags)

TAGGING

  • If the tag has fallen off, Wee-Cycle Mart will be unable to sell the item, or return them to you if unsold.

IMPORTANT NOTES

Clothing Items:

  • Use a 2” safety pin or a tagging gun to secure the tag to the clothing. DO NOT use tape to secure tags to clothing. Place pin or barb in the shoulder seam of the item to prevent poking holes in the garment or if the item is delicate you can attach it through the sizing tag.

  • Attached your tag to the top right of the garment
