Note: Tags must be printed on card stock!

Barcode - Kidz Shoppe utilizes a barcode system to allow for a much faster check-out and an extremely accurate account of your sales. The barcode is a sticker we print and provide to you. The sticker must be affixed in the upper left hand corner of your cards, and must be on all of your items. The barcodes can be picked up at anytime after your consignor number and drop-off appointment have been confirmed. Please e-mail Amy at amy@KidzShoppeOmaha.com for directions.

How to Attach Tags


ALL Clothing must be on hangers. Dry cleaners will give you hangers if you ask. The hanger hook should pointing to the left, and the tag should be SAFETY pinned on the right shoulder when facing the item. Sets tend to sell better (under size 10) than separate items, so match things up. Pin sets securely together by hanging the shirt first, then turn the hanger over and pin the pants by the waist to the backside of the hanger, using two pins, with the pin catching the hanger to support the pants. Both pieces can be viewed without unpinning them, and this prevents lost items.

On larger clothing items, such as maternity or dresses, please secure them with safety pins if they have a tendency to fall off the hanger. Your items won't sell if they're on the floor!

Pants or shorts sold alone should be pinned at the waist by folding it over the hanger. A great way to keep pants from sliding all over the hanger is to use paper-covered dry cleaner's hangers. They don't slide and stay neat-looking, which in turn makes them sell better. Again. dry cleaners will usually give you hangers.


Shoes : may be tied together with string or ribbon shoelaces tied together, safety pinned through lace holes, or place in a ziploc bag with the card taped to the OUTSIDE of the bag and with the bag taped at the top to insure that your items stay together.

Large Items: make sure card is securely attached to your item. Packing tape or pinning a card through ribbon and attaching are the best options.

Items with small parts: small parts should be contained in a zip-lock bag and attached securely to any large item. This will insure no missing parts.

Toys: make sure card is securely attached to your item. Packing tape or pinning a card through ribbon and attaching are the best options. Toys that require batteries should be in working condition. No one will purchase an item if they cannot see that it works. Items without batteries will NOT be accepted.

Books and Videos: please do not use packing tape on books and videos, since it usually tears the cover. Make sure that videos work, and secure tag with two pieces of scotch tape, or put in zip lock bags. If packaging multiples together in bags, please write all titles on tag.

Assembly Required: Items that require assembly must be assembled on-site. Please make sure we know how to disassemble so we may let any potential buyer know. Make sure to bring any tools you may require for assembly.

Additional Instructions: Anything put into a Ziploc bag must have the tag taped to the outside of the bag, and the bag taped shut, this will insure that your items are not separated.

When in Doubt, ASK!   Amy e-mail amy@kidzshoppeomaha.com
