Selling at Born Again Blessings is an easy way to make some extra cash while giving back to your community - WIN WIN! You determine your items' pricing and get 70% of each item sold back. The other 30% goes to the RiverStone Church Barnabas Fund to help those in the community who may be struggling to pay their bills, feed their families, etc.
We also offer a donation option for those items that you just don't want back! Any items marked "Donate" that don't sell will go to MUST Ministries at the end of each sale. AND you get a tax write-off sheet with your check!
Whether this is your first time selling at Born Again Blessings or you're a tenured pro, please take a few minutes to review our policies below regarding the selling process.

During registration, you will need to select a time slot to drop off your items. You will also be assigned a time to retrieve your unsold items and check after the sale. If you choose to donate all of your unsold items, we can mail you a check.
After registering, you are ready to enter your items into inventory. Click the "My Inventory" tab and use the system below to input your items. You may also choose to mark your items "Reduce" and/or "Donate". Items marked "Reduce" will be sold 50% off on Saturday if not yet sold. Any unsold items marked "Donate" will be donated to MUST Ministries after the sale.
Once all of your items are input you will need to transfer them and print your tags. Hover over the "My Inventory" tab and click "Transfer Inventory to a Sale". Select all items and transfer them to the Born Again Blessings sale. The inventory system will then allow you to print your bar-coded tags whenever you like.
** THE MOST VITAL PART OF THE PROCESS IS TRANSFERRING YOUR INVENTORY TO OUR SALE PRIOR TO THE CUT-OFF TIME. A reminder email will be sent to registered sellers. **
REMEMBER: Your inventory must be transferred to the sale before they can be printed. We recommend waiting until all of your items have been input so you can print all your tags at once. It will be much easier than keeping up with what has/hasn't been printed already. All tags MUST be printed on cardstock. Click the "Print My Tags" tab and follow the directions closely. (Make sure barcode lines are clear with no "fuzziness" and/or "bleeding". You must be able to clearly see the black lines and spaces between.) Once your tag pages are printed you will need to color mark them. **WE RECOMMEND COLOR MARKING YOUR TAGS BEFORE CUTTING THEM.**
Every seller should color mark their inventory tags using their assigned group color. Please make sure your color mark does not cover the description or barcode on your tags.
** IF YOU ARE DONATING ALL OF YOUR UNSOLD ITEMS - YOU DO NOT HAVE TO COLOR CODE YOUR INVENTORY.**
** We encourage you to use standard CRAYOLA MARKERS for this process. **
HOW IT WORKS
**NOTE** If you are transferring your items into the BAB sale from another CSA sale, please mark those transferred items in RED and come during the first pick-up window at 5:30 p.m.
This color coding process will be double checked at your inventory drop-off. It will have to be done before your inventory can be added to the sale, so please do it BEFORE you arrive for drop-off.
Once your tags have been color marked and cut you are ready to start labeling your items. Safety pins should be placed on an open area of the tag as to not interfere with tag contents or barcode. Clear tape can be used on items that cannot be pinned. Please make sure the tag is in an easily visible spot and the barcode is not covered.
HOW TO HANG AND PIN CLOTHING
You will drop off your items at RiverStone Church during your scheduled appointment time. There will be signs directing you to drop-off. If your tags are printed and attached correctly, this process will go very quickly. Sellers will be asked to aid in this sorting process. A specific drop-off time is chosen during your registration.
This color coding system helps us simplify the breakdown process and ensures we return the unsold items to the correct sellers.
After the sale, if you have any unsold items that you are not donating, you will return to collect your items and your check. Please be sure to bring some type of large container to collect any unsold items.

TERMS & CONDITIONS
Registration Fee for each seller is $5.00 (deducted from your final sales)
Only items for an upcoming season are accepted for a sale. (Fall/Winter items are accepted for the FALL sale, and Spring/Summer items for the SPRING sale.)
All clothing must be smoke-free, stain free, and freshly laundered!!
50 Item Minimum
300 Item Maximum
**ATTENTION ALL SELLERS**
Remember to be very detailed in describing your items. If a tag is lost, we look at the details we see and type them in to locate your tag. If you do not describe your item, we cannot look up your tag. For example, instead of "little girls outfit" say "pink bunny shirt with pink pants" or "green Old Navy shirt". This helps YOU make more money!!
VETERAN SELLER TIP: We strongly urge you to consider selecting "Reduce" on as many items as possible. Often these items will sell at half price which increases your overall profits!
All clothes must be on hangers with the tag safety-pinned to the front left shoulder of the garment and the hook turned away from the tag. (SEE ABOVE)
Please sort your clothes in SIZE and GENDER order. If not in order at drop-off, we will ask that you help sort them then.
Please remember that we DO accept MATERNITY and JUNIORS clothes. Juniors items should be specifically geared for teenagers and not just small adult clothes.
Shoes should be in good condition (not badly scuffed or dirty) and placed in a Ziploc bag or zip tied together. Zip ties must be actual ZIP TIES, not twist ties! DO NOT tape Ziploc bags. DO NOT put shoes on hangers. Attach tag with packing or masking tape to the outside of the bag. Although not required, it is suggested that you print a second copy of your tag for shoes and attach it to the sole or place inside one of the shoes. This is helpful if your shoes ever get separated from the bag they came in.
Each seller is limited to 50 books or less each sale, unless they are ALL marked donate.
Layette items (comforters, bumper pads, bedding items, etc…) must be on hangers with tag safety-pinned to item.
Accessories (belts, socks, hairbows, tights, hats, etc…) must be in Ziploc bags with one tag taped on the outside of the bag. We suggest that you print an extra tag and fasten it to the item with a safety pin as well. Use clear packing tape to attach tag to the outside of the Ziploc bag. We will not accept these items if the above instructions are not followed.
Toys and games must have all pieces and be in good working order. Place batteries in toys. Attach tag to toy with packing or masking tape. Toys with pieces should be sealed in Ziploc bags and taped shut with the tag taped to the outside of the bag. **BATTERY OPERATED ITEMS WILL BE TESTED AT CHECK-IN TO ENSURE FUNCTION**
If you have an item that has multiple parts, secure those items together or adequately mark them to prevent separation. The system will automatically print up to 5 supplemental tags for multi-piece entries, so please use these to tag those items. Born Again Blessings is not responsible for parts that become separated during the sale.
If you are selling items that are Husky or Slim, they will sell better if you type that in All CAPS in your description.
Multi-piece items that are of different sizes should be tagged with the smallest size of the lot.
ITEMS not accepted
Born Again Blessings reserves the right to reject any items that may be inappropriate. Please carefully review the following restrictions:
We DO NOT accept SKULLS of any kind, skeletons, witches, scary monsters, toy guns (not including NERF), or other violent weapons. Specific brands that we do not accept include, but are not limited to: Goosebumps, Harry Potter, Twilight, Pokemon, etc.

We DO NOT accept pacifiers unless they are new in the packaging.
We DO NOT accept car seats that are older than 10 years from the manufactured date (typically found on the underneath or side of each seat).
Born Again Blessings is not responsible for lost, stolen, broken or soiled items associated with this sale.
Some sellers have reported that Adobe Reader scales the tag pages down to fit printer margins which may affect the quality of the barcodes. This can be stopped by choosing "No Scaling" in the Adobe Reader print dialog screen. Print a test first--if the barcode looks clear, don't worry about changing anything.
DO NOT cover the barcode with tape, even if it is clear tape as this interferes with the scanners.
DO NOT scribble out anything on the tag. If you need to make changes to the tag, please change it in the system and reprint. However, adding additional handwritten descriptions is allowed as long as it does not interfere with the barcode.
DO NOT print duplicate tags. Each item is unique——one item for every tag. You must enter each item separately even if the description is the same.
If you have any other questions, please email us at BABConsignmentSale@gmail.com and a committee member will get back to you as soon as possible!
