I’ve seen a lot of pricing guides – on blogs, on sale sites, etc, etc… and I came across this simple little chart that I think REALLY helps provide a quick & easy concept for pricing. Of course, there are ALWAYS factors to take into account… but I think this is a FABULOUSLY simple start! Credit goes to Upstate Kids in Clemson, SC.

5 Simple Pricing Rules
1. Markets vary – if you have questions, ask your sale organizer
2. Condition Matters – excellent condition falls at the top of the ranges above
3. Size Matters – large sizes generally sell at the higher end of these price ranges
4. “Dressy” Matters – T-Shirts & play clothes will fall at (or even below) the prices above. Dresses, nice tops & bottoms can go into the higher ranges
5. When In Doubt, Go Low – the best way to “move your items” is to price at the lower end of the spectrum. Price too high and you won’t sell and/or folks will wait until half off to purchase.
