What We Cannot Take

We are understandably very selective with what we accept on consignment. Marketability, display-ability, and resale-ability are all parts of our aim to serve our consignors and shoppers in a balanced and mutually-pleasing way.

          

    For health & safety reasons, or, because we cannot properly display them, we do not accept:
  • Bed, bath, & window linens
  • Clothing
  • Mattresses
  • Sofa Sleepers (unless new)
  • Toys
  • Tools, appliances, or other electrical utility items
  • Any electrical item otherwise accepted (lamps, lighting) with a frayed, cut, or damaged power cord or plug

         OVERALL WE TARGET A CURATED COLLECTION OF ALL ITEMS                 UNDER 10 YEARS OLD AND "ON TREND"

    Though we encourage re-purposing and refinish/painting, and have a DIY inventory in both of our stores, our space is limited for those items. For the most part, we do not accept:
