TAGGING EXCEPTION: If you have items tagged for another consignment sale you do not need to retag. We will accept tags from Just Between Friends, Divine Consign, Rhea Lana, etc. If anything other than your name identifies you as the seller please declare on your waiver so we can reconcile tags with sales and pay you accordingly! (i.e. Seller ID JD12345 = Jane Doe)
MATCHING/COORDINATING OUTFITS THAT ARE NOT TO BE SOLD SEPARATELY should be hung on hangers. Rubber band the necks of the hangers together. After the sale Friday, members may pick-up any clothing sets that they do not wish to sell individually. Shopping will then resume, and members may “break” sets and purchase items singly. EACH piece of clothing in the set needs its own price tag. Please respect the wishes of owners: items that are bound together must NEVER be separated by anyone other than the owner on Friday night.
