PRICING YOUR ITEMS

The most common question we receive is, “How do I price my stuff??”

Below are some guidelines to assist you:

When pricing your items, consider your item’s age and condition.

Look at each item as if you were thinking of buying it for your child – what would you pay?

As a general rule, price items at about 1/4 to 1/3 of their original price.

Boutique brands and name brands such as Gymboree, Baby Gap or Hanna Andersson can be priced closer to 1/3 of their original price. Clothing from Target or Wal-Mart should be priced on the lower end.

An exception to the 1/4 – 1/3 rule is indoor/outdoor toys – plastic kitchens, playhouses, climbers, etc (Little Tikes type items). These items are in higher demand and you can get as much as 1/3-1/2 of original retail price – especially if they have only been used indoors and are in great condition.

Outfits & sets tend to sell better. Whenever possible, pair up tops & bottoms.

Attach a matching hair bow, socks, tights or belt to make a truly complete outfit.

Price infant clothing size 0-24 months low – there is often an abundance of like new, barely worn clothing in this size. These sizes gets little wear & so many are given as gifts. The lower your prices, the better chance it will sell.

Bundle like-items together to make a better value. Examples: Board books, chapter books, small infant toys, puzzles, DVD’s, baby bottles, sleepers, onesies, etc

Allow your items to be reduced on 50% off day – it’s better to get less and clean out your closets, than to have to take back home items you don’t need. (Especially true if you are donating your unsold items anyway.) Sellers who price reasonably and allow items to be discounted on half-price day, generally sell a higher percentage of their items.
