how to price your items
Kids Closet Sellers set their own prices. If you have never sold at a consignment sale in Atlanta before, please do some research on the right way to price your items. Below with given you some links to 'industry experts' that have some great advice on how to price. If you price your items too high (sometimes we're very attached to the cute dress or Braves jersey) you will most likely not find a buyer willing to pay that much at consignment sales. Atlanta consignment sale shoppers are looking for BARGAINS.
One tip we want to share with you is to consider letting items go at 1/2 price. New sellers tend to shy away from that (because little Susie looked so adorable in that dress that cost a fortune so you want some 'real' money for it). Ok - bottom line is that you're cleaning out, you're not attached to it anymore so it's time to sell it. You've already made that decision. We advertise heavily that our sellers get to shop half price early before the general public. This builds 'pressure'. Someone may pay full price for the item rather than lose it to someone who can shop discount early. That may not happen all the time, but we've been doing this a long time and we've seen it happen - A LOT! You're trying to sell it and not take it back home with you. Let it go to half price on Saturday.

There's nothing worse than doing all the work to get things ready and then having to take it all home again because it was priced too high.
