Item Tagging

Kidz Shoppe utilizes a barcode system to allow for a fast check-out experience and to provide an accurate account of your sales. Each consignor is issued a unique barcode tied to their ID number, upon registration. Your barcode must be on all of your tags.  

How to Create Tags

We allow two methods for creating price tags - print at home or receive barcode labels via USPS. Our recommended method is using our template to print at home. During registration, please select which method you will use. All tags will be inspected during your drop off appointment. Any items that are improperly tagged will have to be redone on your time. Please email us with any questions.


Please be as specific as possible in case your tag gets separated from your item. This could aid in pairing them back together and ensuring you get your money for the item

ND - No Discount
This is optional. If you choose to put ND in the bottom right corner of the tag, the item will not be discounted at the 1/2 Price Sale.

There is a $2 minimum on every item.  Pair like items or outfits (if necessary) to meet price minimum. Please note, items priced too high may be turned away at drop-off. All items must be sold in $1.00 increments (i.e.  $2.00, $4.00, $10.00, etc.)

Supplies Needed

  • 3x5 white index cards -OR- 65lb minimum white cardstock
  • Safety pins at least 1 inch in size (NO straight pins or small gold safety pins)
  • Blue or Black Pen or Marker if doing tags by hand
  • Plastic ziploc baggies (for toys with small parts)
  • Packing tape (for attaching tags to toys, books etc.)
  • Zip ties, string or ribbon (to tie shoes together)


Additional Places to Purchase Supplies

Wire Hangers: Amazon, Dry Cleaner Supply Vendors on-line

Safety pins: Amazon, Walmart, Hobby Lobby, etc. 

How to Prepare Clothing & Attach Tags


All clothing must be on wire hangers. The hanger hook should point to the left, and the tag should be safety pinned on the right shoulder when facing the item.  Wire hangers with "tubes" are NOT ALLOWED as they take up too much space on our racks.

Check out tagging demonstration videos to learn more.

Non-Hanging Items

Shoes: Please secure shoes together with a zip tie.  In the event there is NO WAY to secure the shoes together you may place them in a ziploc bag with the tag taped to the OUTSIDE of the bag and with the bag taped at the top to ensure that your items stay together. Shoes that are zip tied tend to sell better as customers can try them on.

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

Items with small parts: Small parts should be contained in a ziploc bag and attached securely to any large item to ensure no missing parts.

Toys: Make sure the price tag is securely attached to your item. Packing tape or pinning a card through zip ties 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.

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 ziploc bags. If packaging multiples together in bags, please write all titles on the tag.

Assembly Required: Items that require assembly must be assembled on-site or prior to drop-off. 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 ensure that your items are not separated.

When in Doubt, ASK!   Feel free to email us with any questions.
