Buy Counter Instructions & Helpful Tips:
*All Clothing must be Freshly Washed, Laid Flat & Neatly Organized in plastic storage bins, containers, laundry baskets or totes (storage containers will be returned to you once buy transaction is complete). Unfortunately we are not accepting items in plastic bags due to the fact that they do rip easy and your items can get lost in our store! Please place 2 piece outfits together (do not pin them).
*Clothes must be Current in Style (within the last 3 years) and free of stains, rips, pilling, fading, excessive wear, odors and any alterations from original style.
*We prefer Brand Name Clothing like Abercrombie, GAP, Gymboree, Old Navy, Osh Kosh, Ralph Lauren, and Tommy Hilfiger, and will accept Target and Walmart store brands if in perfect condition!
*We accept Shoes as long as they are clean and have no wear in the heels, toes or scuff marks.
*Presentation is everything. We are more likely to purchase your items if they are clean and organized. It will also save you time since we will be able to process your items more quickly.
*We buy Furniture, Equipment and Toys which are clean, in very good to excellent shape, include all parts, and that meet safety standards. Recalls are checked Daily.
