Price Your Items
1. A general rule to pricing your items is: How much would I pay for this? Price the item as if you were the buyer. Items should be priced at a quarter to a third of the original retail price. Excellent condition or in high demand, then price your items higher. Name brands may also sell for higher price then say a Walmart/Target brand.
2. Price to sell: Price your items at what you would honestly pay for them and take into account the condition of your items. Also, we suggest including your items on the last day in the ½ price sale, but that is up to you. Remember the better your presentation the more money you can earn.
3. If a single item cannot sell alone or you think it’s only worth $1.00, then pair it with another item. Try to keep all sets together. If you can put together whole outfits, they will sell quicker. When putting together sets or matching outfits please pair them with items that are the same size and same brand-name. For example, Old Navy boy’s short grey with blue stripe size 18 months pair with Old Navy blue shirt size 18 months. Be creative with your items, it will pay off in the end.
4. In regard to larger items such as swings, play ‘n’ pack, other, etc., make sure everything is clean and all parts and accessories are attached and are in excellent condition. I would price these items for 30% – 50% of the original retail price. Indoor/Outdoor items such as Little Tikes are very high in demand and can be priced between 30% to 50% depending on their condition.
Minimum price for each item must be $2 to make it worth your time to prepare.
