Preparing Your Items
All battery operated items must have working batteries. If the batteries are not working when item is sold, we will provide the buyer with new batteries, but you will be charged $1.00 per battery.All puzzles and games must have all their pieces and marked complete. Please attach all parts via zip lock bag with packing tape, or a zip tie. Sorry, NO PAINTERS TAPE ACCEPTED.
The better an item looks, the more likely it is to sell, so remember Clean, Clean, Clean!
Use Magic Eraser to attack crayon, scuff, and pen marks.
A toothpick is great for getting into corners.
Rubbing alcohol or peanut butter is great to remove sticky residue.
If it looks clean, shine it up anyway.
The better it looks, the higher you can price the item!
All clothing must be on hangers, stain-free with working zippers, and no missing buttons. When hanging pants with pins use top part of hanger. If hung on the bottom they slip around. When hanging items on hangers, look at the hanger and it should face the way of a question mark when looking at the front of the shirt. That way all items will hang on the racks the same.
TAGS MUST BE PINNED OR FASTENED ON THE BACK OF THE ITEM BY THE NECKLINE OR WAISTBAND.
Pants must be fastened securely to the hanger - if you hang pants over the hanger bar, you must use binder clip to secure to the bar, or pins.
PLEASE NOTE NEW POLICY !
Do not pin your items to the hanger! If you pin your garment to the hanger it will be rejected unless it is pants. HWGA keeps hangers to give back to the consignor.Pinning your garment to the hanger only holds up our check out process.
Zip tie shoes or put in zip lock bag, NO SHOE BOXES accepted, shoppers will switch shoes!
