We have two lists of items we do not accept--temporary and permanent
The temporary restrictions list can change at any time. We recommend you review these lists before you bring in items to consign.
A Few Fort Myer Thrift Shop Reminders
The Fort Myer Thrift Shop reserves the right at all times to refuse any items we deem unsalable or inappropriate. Items we currently do not accept can be a donation or brought in when we are currently accepting the item(s).
We reserve the right to not accept items even if they are not on the temporary or permanent list. This is due to temporary space limitations. These are usually for very short periods of time and are usually in addition to the item restrictions listed on the web site.
