Become a Seller

The LexFUN! Consignment Sale utilizes My Consignment Manager (MCM) to make the consigning process a breeze for our sellers. All sellers will need to use this online software to enter their items, print tags on white cardstock, and manage their inventory. 

No Hidden Fees to Consigning with Us – There is no registration cost associated with becoming a seller in our event. Sellers earn 50% of the items sold, and the balance goes to our LexFUND! Community Fund, which provides monetary support to a variety of situations geared towards assisting families in need. Supporting the LexFUND!’s Preschool Scholarship Program is one area that money is allocated to from the LexFUND! Community Fund. Unsold items are not returned to the sellers. These unsold items are either available for shoppers during the Bargain Bag Sale (3:00-4:00 PM) or donated to local family charities and organizations.

Prepare Your Items

What You’ll Need: For clothing items, you’ll need wire hangers, safety pins or tagging gun, and white cardstock (Please DO NOT use copy paper). You may also need clear packing tape, Ziplock bags, rubber bands, or zip ties if you have shoes, toys, or other miscellaneous items.

Get Organized: Separate your items into groups by type – toys, clothing, equipment, etc.Sort all clothing by gender, type, and size. Sorting before entering items will save you time, as you’ll only have to re-enter the price and description for each new item. Item categories remain the same until you change them. 

Check for Quality: Please examine all items, especially clothing, to make sure it is in good working condition with no stains, holes or missing pieces. Please also double check to make sure that your tags have printed clearly (bar codes are clearly visible with dark ink and not smudged or blurry) and that all information is correct. 

Clothing: USE WIRE HANGERS ONLY. Clothing that is clean, pressed, and smell fresh, with buttons and zippers closed, will generally sell first. Clothing should be hung on wire hangers with the hanger positioned so that the top of the hanger forms a question mark when looking at the front of the garment. Compared to plastic hangers, wire hangers take up less room on the clothing racks.

Quick Clothing Tips

  • Sets tend to sell better than separate items. Try to match up separates if you can!

  • Pants, jeans, overalls, and shorts should be folded and price tags easily accessible.

  • Use wire hangers to display your onesies. You can put multiple onesies on one hanger.

  • If you have items that are stained, ripped, or just doesn’t look as good as it once did, please consider supporting the Lexington Public Schools by utilizing the textile recycling bins located at every Lexington elementary school. Schools get rebate $$ for bin contents! LPS recycled close to 74,000 pounds of textiles ($37,000!) last year! It is literally a win-win, reducing what would go to a landfill/incinerator AND supporting the schools! These bins accept clothing, footwear, accessories (like bags and belts), linens and stuffed animals (which we cannot accept at the LexFUN! Consignment Sale). If you don't live close to Lexington we encourage you to check out the Baystate Textiles website to find a drop off in your community!

Hangers: Need a source for wire hangers? We ask that all sellers use wire hangers for displaying their clothing items. Wire hangers can be found on Amazon, Walmart stores, and some Dollar Tree stores. You can also check your local dry cleaners. If you do business with them, oftentimes they will give you a handful. Social media has recently been a great option as well. Sometimes all it takes is posting, “Anyone have some wire hangers I can take off your hands?”

Shoes: Only sell shoes that are like-new, with little wear and tear, and clean them thoroughly. Tie shoes together or place them in a clear Ziplock bag. Tags placed on Ziplock bags can be attached with clear packing tape. Scotch tape and masking tape tend not to hold so well. You are responsible for making sure your tags are secure. Please know that all shoes will be placed in bins by size. Your tag needs to be secure enough to withstand a lot of movement. 

Books: All stages of reading accepted. Groups of books can be placed in bags. We do not recommend using rubber bands to group books as they run the risk of getting separated. Attach your price tag to back of the book with clear packing tape or painters tape.

Toys & Equipment: Please remove all dirt, grime, and marks to your items. Including working batteries in your items helps to ensure people try them out and working items will sell quickly. We highly recommend that all small or removable pieces be secured in a bag to the item. Make sure that all parts and pieces are included with puzzles, toys, and games. If a game has a box, taping it closed will help keep contents safe and secure. Your puzzles can also be wrapped with plastic wrap to help keep items together.

Pricing Your Items

You set your price. Price to sell! Well priced items sell first. Consignment shoppers are bargain hunters. For clothing, we suggest no more than ⅓ of the original retail price, depending on name and condition. Use the Pricing Guidelines to help you price items to sell!

Creating Your Tags

We require the use of our online tagging system for creating tags. We do not accept MCM tags or barcodes that have been used from previous years or other sales.However, we do offer a power tagging option for easy retagging of items from other consignment sales. Check out our power tagging information sheet for more details. 

Important things to remember about creating tags:

  1. Tagging entries must be completed in the system by midnight on Tuesday, April 16th. You will be able to print your tags after this time, but no new entries will be allowed. 

  2. Use 60-70# card stock paper to print your tags. Please DO NOT use copy paper. 

  3. Do not place tape over barcodes.

  4. Do not photocopy your tags for the purposes of multiples. Each item must have a unique barcode. You can create multiples of a tag in the system with the Power Tag option. By creating the tags properly, you assign each item a unique barcode which tells your account exactly which item sold, its price, and gives you the correct credit for the sale.

  5. Please make sure your printer has enough ink, is printing clearly, and the barcodes are not smudged or blurry. You can also save the PDF of your tags and email to any office supply store for printing. 

  6. All items must have your price tag securely attached BEFORE you arrive at the Seller Drop-Off. No handwritten price tags can be accepted. Do not use duplicate tags.

Barcode Tag Printing Instructions

  1. Log-in to My Consignment Manager. 

  2. From the “Manage Items” page, select the drop-down menu next to “Show [#] entries,” and then select the maximum number to print all entries. Note: This option will not work on a phone. 

  3. Select the number of tags you wish to generate. To select all, select the blank box in the top left corner of the grid.

  4. Select “Print” at the top of the page. 

  5. Download the file. This will print to a .pdf. You must have Adobe to open this file. Choose to save to your computer or to print. 

  6. Print at home on your excellent quality home printer or send your tags to a local office supply store for printing. 

  7. Tags must be printed on white cardstock (60 lb or heavier). Please do not use standard printer paper or textured cardstock.

Seller Drop-Off

Friday, April 19, 2024 5:00-7:30 PM

Seller Drop-Off will happen on Friday, April 19th from 5:00-7:30 PM. If we are able to complete set-up earlier than expected, we will send out a notification email from My Consignment Manager with details. Drop-off tends to take about 10-15 minutes. You will be asked to place your items directly onto the sale’s floor. While we tend to have volunteers assisting with placement of your items, we cannot guarantee that assistance will be available for every seller during drop-off. 

Bring a Self-Addressed, Stamped Envelope (A10 size) when you drop off your items. Put your consigner number in the return address area. We will mail your check to you in this envelope. Please check to make sure your name and address listed on the envelope is the same as what you have registered on My Consignment Manager. When we are generating seller checks, we cross reference the information provided on the envelope and My Consignment Manager to make sure payments are being sent to the correct place. Taking a moment to make sure your information is correct and up-to-date helps to get your payment faster!

Helpful Tips on Dropping Off Your Items

  • Have clothes on hangers – All clothes (except pants, jeans, overalls, skirts and shorts) should be on wire hangers before dropping off. Pants, jeans, overalls and shorts should be folded.

  • Pre-sort clothes by age– All clothing needs to be sorted by size and gender when you arrive at drop off. 

    • Helpful tip – Put a rubber band around the hangers for items that are all the same size and gender. For example, group all girls’ size 6 months and all boys’ size 6 months separately.

  • Pre-assemble furniture and equipment – Assemble items such as swings and highchairs to avoid losing pieces and parts.

  • Recalls – Be aware of recent recalls (visit CPSC.gov for the most current list)

The LexFUN! Consignment Sale has a reputation for high quality merchandise so there are restrictions on the items accepted. Please don’t be offended if items are returned to you during drop off or removed from the sale if found to be damaged. Items may be denied for any of the following reasons: stains, tears, missing buttons, non-functional zippers, missing parts, recalled items, or items we do not sell.

Getting Paid After the Sale

  • A check will be mailed to each seller several weeks after the sale with individual proceeds. Consignors will receive 50% of the proceeds from their items that sell. 

  • At the close of the sale, all unsold items will be donated to charity and will not be returned to individual sellers.

  • You must bring a self-addressed, stamped envelope (A10 size) when you drop off your items. Put your consigner number in the return address area. We will mail your check to you in this envelope.

  • Document your tax deduction. Within a few days after the sale you will receive an email notifying you that sales data has been uploaded to your account. To access this information, visit www.myconsignmentmanager.com/lexfun and log in as a "Returning Seller." Then in the middle of the page under "Make a Selection for Your Next Step," click on "View Settlement Report" to see your total. You can see what items sold and for how much, as well as your grand total. Then you can print off the list of what didn’t sell and use that documentation for your tax receipt. It is important that you print this list by Friday, May 3, 2024 because Settlement Reports are only available for two weeks after the sale (at which point the sale is archived in the My Consignment Manager system).
