What do you not accept?
Before you consign your items, look at your items–would you buy them again in the store today? That’s a good initial test. We do not accept items that are wrinkled, soiled, or damaged. Items must be free of odors, stains, wear and pet hair. Please check for holes, spots, pilling, stains, and wear- we are not able to sell these items. Shoes with visible wear or toe marks are not accepted. Specifically, the following kinds of items are NOT currently selling well in our store: adult pants, Walmart or Kmart brands, formal wear, men’s or ladies suits and blazers, electronics, linens, glassware, cribs, car seats, baby bath tubs, frames and small prints, board games, stuffed animals, plain shirts, books for adults & DVDs. If you’re unsure whether we accept an item, do not hesitate to give us a call at 410-758-8702 or ask while you are in.
