Shoppers are looking for the very best bargains! We encourage you to price your items to sell! You will sell more and have fewer items to pick-up after the sale!
Consider allowing your items to be discounted when entering your inventory. Items marked "Discount: Yes" will be sold at 25% off at the end of the sale week and at 50% on the last day(s) of the sale. However, DO NOT set your original price higher assuming it will be sold at the discount. Our full-price days are our biggest sale days and your item may get overlooked if the price is too high.
Thank you for the items you donate! All items marked "Donate: Yes" become property of The Clothesline at the close of the sale. Local charities, including Pass It On, Little Sisters of the Poor, Goodwill, Children's Museum of Richmond, churches, and other organizations benefit from your generosity.

Printing Your Tags
You may print your tags in batches as you go, or all at once. The system saves your information automatically.
Login to your seller's account and go to Print Tags. Then go to Generate Items List. You will then see your inventory list. Check the items for the tags you want to print. There will then be a link to download the file that has your tags. It's simple!
Tips * You must print you tags on cardstock paper (60-67# weight). Do NOT use regular paper.
* Please use the "Normal" or "Draft" print setting. The "best" quality print causes barcodes to bleed, making it difficult to scan them. Barcodes should look crisp and clear.
* If you have a color printer, be sure to select "Black Cartridge Only" from the printing properties screen. Otherwise, the tags will appear purple and blurry and will not scan properly.
To attach the tag, punch a hole in the top of the tag and use a cable tie, string, or ribbon to attach it through the garment's sewn-in label, a button-hole, or belt loop. Or you may use a safety pin to attach the tag to the right side of the item (as it faces you on the hanger).
