Items tagged on ANY other color than white will be donated following the sale.

Important: Please do not tag on beige/light tan/sand colored cardstock as it's confusing for volunteers who are sorting items for pick-up and your items may not be returned to you following the sale. Also, please do not tag on red cardstock due to the use of red pens on 1/2 price day.
