Pricing Instructions

A good rule of thumb for pricing is to begin at 50% of the original purchase price, and adjust up or down based on quality and presentation.

  • Price all of your items in whole dollar increments.
  • Try to separate your personal and sentimental thoughts about an item from the resale value.
  • The more competitive the price, the more likely it will sell!
  • Presentation is everything!  Please take the time to freshly launder and iron your clothing items.  It makes a difference!
  • Combine items if the $2 minimum item price would be too high

Suggested Pricing Guidelines

  • Clothing needs to be in great condition and priced to sell!  We highly suggest that you mark all your clothing to be included in the half-price sale.
    • Infant and Toddler Play Clothes - $2.00 to $7.00
    • Infant and Toddler Dress Clothes - $8.00 to $15.00
    • Older Kids Clothing - $5.00 to $15.00
  • Shoes need to be in excellent condition to bring top dollar.  If you can, throw them in the washer or use wipes to clean them up. 
    • Infant and Toddler Sizes - $2.00 to $5.00
    • Older Kids Sizes - $7.00 to $10.00
  • Swings, Bouncer Seats, Strollers, Car Seats, Etc.  Since there is such a wide variety of pricing when purchasing these new, we can't suggest any specific pricing.  Start at 50% of what you paid and adjust up or down from there, based on the condition.  If you aren't sure what it costs new, do a quick search on Amazon for current pricing.  Spend some time cleaning these items up and they will sell!

  • Toys are another category that have such a wide variety of pricing.  We suggest pricing toys at 30% to 40% of their original price because we usually have so many.  If you price them a little high, make sure you mark them for discount on Sunday.
