This sale better be worth it! Update

I am selling my kids old clothes and toys, along with a double stroller at the JBF sale this weekend.  I am almost done tagging the items, but man!  It has taken three days!  I get 70% of the sale, I would rather do this versus a yard sale because people just haggle and I am not comfortable with that.  Has anyone done this yet?


UPDATE!

I am done!  Phew, that was a lot of work!  I will be loading everything and dropping it off this evening.  I have 110 items to sell!

I just did it for the first time last weekend.  The one here is called Leprechaun Lillys.  It was sooo much work getting everything together!  All the items had to be facing the same way on the hangers, I had to safety pin pants and shorts to hangers and tag everything etc....
I have not gotten my check yet but out of 117 items, I didn't sell 8 of them.  I am not sure what I made yet just because the last day of the sale if half off...so I don't know if they sold before the last day at full price or not.

I take everything to the childrens orchard or once upon a child for store credit ang get what he needs with that. Its so much easier and we haven't had to spend much for him in 2 years.

We donate our daughter's used clothing to organizations.  It's less headache, and we get the tax write off at the end of the year.

We usually do that too, but I want to try this.  Its worth a shot.
