2 – How to sell: Your GENTLY used clothes must be sorted by GIRLS & BOYS and sorted by size AND hung or folded neatly. Items that are stained, ripped, soiled, broken or stretched out AND shoes that have little/no traction will not be placed on the sales floor. Hanging items is encouraged. When using hangers, hang clothes so that the hanger looks like a question mark when the front of the garment is facing you. 

• Tagging – All items must be tagged with Double Love Sale Tags. Please fill out the LEFT and RIGHT SIDES of the tags. Check the newsletter for your club number and tag color. The minimum price should be $0.50. Please price items to the $0.25 (prefer pricing to nearest $0.50). Use the “half price” sheet that has a heart on each side of the tags if you want items to be sold for 1/2 price after 11AM. Price to the closest $0.50 for half price items. 

• Please use safety pins to affix the tags to all items. Do not use straight pins! Tags must be attached on the right side of clothing items. It is suggested that pins be placed in the seam or other area to not ruin the item. CLEAR PACKAGING TAPE may be used to attach tags to toys, equipment, etc. Please tape only the LEFT SIDE of the tag. Any items on the sales floor that lose their tags or are un-tagged will be sold as a donation to “Double Love” with the club receiving all profits from the sale. The club is not responsible for lost, damaged or stolen items. 

• Bring your merchandise in boxes or hard plastic containers/bins (no shopping bags). Mark each box or container/bin AND EACH LID with your “club number”. Also mark on the boxes or containers/bins 1 of 1, 1 of 2, etc. This is very important for packing up your items at the end of the sale. You must take all of your own boxes or containers/bins with you when the sale is over, even the empty ones. We DO NOT have anywhere to dispose of them. 

3 – Working the sale. All members are asked to work the sale (this is our only fundraising event). Members are encouraged to bring their children (if you feel they are old enough), spouses or other family members to help during Friday setup and Saturday tear down. We are a non-profit organization so children can receive “community service” hours for helping. 

• Set up is Fri, August 6th at 6PM and concludes around 10PM. Please be there with all items pre-tagged at that time, ready to work/set-up. We set up and place outside sellers first before any club member items are placed on the sales floor. Members can shop after all items are on the floor. 

• The sale is Sat, August 7th from 8:30 AM – noon for the public and 8am for MOI members. DL Members should arrive by 7:30 AM and plan on staying until 3:30 for clean-up & adding up tags. Dinner will be provided on Fri. and lunch will be provided on Sat. 

4 – Bake sale to benefit the Philanthropic is on Saturday. On Friday night, please bring 6-12 individually wrapped kid friendly items or juice boxes for the bake sale. 

5 – Bring large bags for the sale from businesses such as Target, Kohl’s. etc, 

6 – Approximately 3 weeks after the sale, you will receive a sale proceeds check in the mail. You will receive 85% of your gross profits and Double Love will retain 15%. Thank you for your help in making our sales so successful. 

7 – Member Business Table – we will be setting a specific area aside for any Club Member’s Business Flyers. You just need to print your own flyers and be working the sale. You can bring the flyers with you when you come for the Friday night set-up.  

 Thank you for your help in making our sales so successful.
