Sorting your inventory

***ALL merchandise must be pre-sorted PRIOR to CHECK-IN***

1). Sort CLOTHING according to:

  • SIZE and GENDER
  • Group the sorted items together in bags/boxes when bringing items to merchandise check-in for the sale (follow the SIZING RULES above when sorting).
  • Mark each clothing grouping with specific label such as “G18mo” (girl’s 18months sized regular clothing items) or “B4T” (boy’s 4T sized regular clothing items)
  • No outerwear, costumes, bedding or other hanging items should be included with these items
  • ONLY children’s clothing up to size 18 will be accepted.
  • No Socks will be accepted for sale.
  • Tights are allowed to be sold at the 2016 Fall Sale. Tights should be marked according to tag size. Please refer to our general sizing rules for additional guidelines. We will display the tights in ranges of sizes to aid in shopping.

2). Sort SHOES by:

  • GENDER ONLY (a size range on each bag/box is encouraged)
  • No items other than shoes should be in shoe bags/boxes used at merchandise check-in.
  • Shoe sizes Infant – Youth 6 1/2 are accepted for sale.

3). Sort OUTERWEAR and COSTUMES by:

  • SIZE ONLY (sorting by gender is not required)
  • Group the sorted items together in bags/boxes when bringing items to merchandise check-in for the sale (follow the SIZING RULES above when sorting).
  • Mark each grouping with specific label such as “18mo-4T outerwear” (sized 18 months-4T jackets & coats) or “4T-7 costumes” (sized 4T-7 Halloween or dress-up costumes)
  • No other hanging items should be included with these items

4). Group LIKE ITEMS with LIKE ITEMS in containers, boxes or bags & label them:

  • place all feeding items together in a plastic bag or box
  • place all infant/toddler toys together in a box or bags
  • place all games, puzzles & books together in boxes or bags
     

> PLEASE DO NOT PILE ALL YOUR ITEMS TOGETHER FOR OUR LOAD-IN COMMITTEE TO HAVE TO SORT THROUGH. THIS WILL PROLONG YOUR CHECK-IN PROCESS AND MAY RESULT IN A LOSS OF YOUR 5% MEMBER BONUS COMMISSION.

 

Merchandise Containers

  • Sellers are encouraged to fill their two (2) largest containers with consignment sale items and use these for 1) a returns bin/box and 2) a hangers return bin/box. Please label all containers brought to the sale. Return box and hanger box labels are provided at check-in, however your bins should have your name marked directly on them. If you have brought many clothing/smaller items to the sale, please consider bringing a second returns box.
  • Any additional plastic bins or “Rubbermaid” type containers that are used by sellers will need to be unloaded in the lobby and returned to your car immediately
  • MULTIPLES OF KANSAS CITY will NOT be responsible for any additional bins that are not specifically labeled for item returns and hanger returns.
  • If you use the large, Ziploc storage bags for merchandise check-in and want them back, please write your name on the bag. The load-in workers will make efforts to save them for our sellers, however returns are not guaranteed.
  • Leave all lids to bins in your vehicle or at home.

General Tips for Easier Load In:

  • Children are not allowed inside the church during Load In. This is for their safety.
  • Have all items correctly sorted by gender/size and category.
  • Label each box/bag (with similar or same-type contents) using categories such as, “feeding,” “baby gear,” “small toys,” “décor,” “accessories”.
  • Bring a dolly or wagon to help haul your items from your car.
  • Allow plenty of time for load in/check in. It may take longer than you think.
  • Have all tags attached before you arrive!
  • Any items not on the floor at the scheduled end of your load in/check in will not be sold.
