Consignments
For a full list of seasonal items we are accepting and the dates we are accepting
them click here.

Easy to consign, easy to withdraw. We have possibly the highest consignment rates
in your favor and the cheapest withdrawal fees.

If your item sells you get seventy-five (75) % of the total sale!

We pride ourselves for a relaxed environment. We want our thrift shop to be a nice
place to visit and our consignment department is no exception. Fill out our
consignment form, leave items and a filled out contract with us and go shopping. If
you have questions we will answer them.

56 days of item consignment or until sold
Your consignment items are for sale for 8 weeks (56 days) from the date you bring
your item to the thrift shop. You may mark down items once in those 56 days with no
penalty. If you volunteer you receive an even longer consignment period for each
item of 84 days.

If your items do not sell after 8 weeks they become thrift store property. If you do not
withdraw an item it may still be sold and proceeds go to the thrift shop. You may
withdraw your items, but before the date the item becomes thrift shop property.

Drop sheets
Our office will provide you with a copy of your consignment form and a drop sheet
that indicates the date your items, if they do not sell, become thrift shop property.
Drop sheets are available to you a day after you bring in consignment items. Please
do not forget to come in and pick them up.
It is your responsibility to track your
own items
.

Withdraw an item not a problem
If you want to withdraw your item you pay .25 to $1.00  to withdraw each item. You
must withdraw the item before it becomes thrift shop property.
