Preparing Your Clothes

Look at your clothing items as if you were going to buy them. Presentation is EVERYTHING! Make your items look as good as possible!

Replace missing buttons, sew loose hems and seams, clip loose threads and make sure zippers and snaps work properly.

Size 4T garments and smaller should be hung on child size hangers. All others on regular size hangers. All hangers should be hung with the opening to the left so the hanger resembles a question mark. Remember garments will not be taken off hangers at detagging.

Only pair items that are the SAME SIZE!!

Two-pieced garments: hang the shirt first then turn the hanger over and pin pants by the waist to the top of the hanger, through the shirt.

All pants must be pinned to the top of the hanger so they will not slide around. We will not accept pants hung in any other manner - i.e., folded over hanger or pinned at the bottom of the hanger. Please do not use clip hangers!

Please secure shoes using a ribbon or tying the shoe laces together. Safety pin the tag to the ribbon or shoe lace.
