    1. Skis - use elastics or tape at tip and tail; tape on your tag
    2. Boots - use 2 - 3 ft. of cord through the bottom laces. This will allow buyers to try them on. Attach tag to cord.
    3. Poles - use elastics or tape to hold them together; tape on your tag
    4. Other items - be creative but be smart; ensure that tags do not get separated from their items


  1. Please ensure that you include a size/length and description for each line item. This helps to ensure any confusion. If tags come off, this could affect what is due to you.
