Price Your Items

Pricing Tips

As the consignor, you are in total control of your pricing! Here are some tips and guidelines we hope you find helpful. 

 

 

 As a general rule you will want to price items at about 1/4 to 1/3 of their original retail price. If your item is a name-brand or boutique-brand such as Janie & Jack®, Gymboree®, Hanna Andersson or other higher end, you can price closer to 1/3 original retail. Clothing from Target or Wal-Mart should be priced on the lower end. In the end, take a look at the item and say to yourself “what would I pay for this?” and then use your best judgment. 

The one exception to the 1/4 – 1/3 rule will be indoor/outdoor toys like kitchens and playhouses (Little Tikes type items). These types of toys are in higher demand and you can expect to get as much as 1/3-1/2 of original retail price, especially if they have only been used indoors

 


NOTE: Minimum price should be $2 and can increase in .50 increments. Our system will accept as low as $1. But we prefer you begin at $2


Think of pricing in terms of what you would pay for this item if you were shopping for one. Others may price higher or lower, but most items priced right will sell at full price!

Use the following prices for ideas on how to price your items. These are good estimates based on what similar items are selling for in area second-hand stores and at similar consignment sales. If you have examples to add, we would love to hear from you. Email us at laurie@kidzsignments.com.
