COVID-19 UPDATE Effective Immediately
7/5/2020 

Boy! This Pandemic really has changed so many things that we do daily. From wearing a mask to sanitizing ourselves and our surfaces 100 times a day!
As a small business we have had to make many changes to our practices. As you are already doing with our new process, the same changes have been to our shoppers buying behaviors. And so we must make a few changes to that as well.

In these current events of COVID-19 and the accessibility of Digital Technology we have seen a dramatic difference in the demand of products from our customers. While the demand of items such as clothing, games and puzzles have increased, the demand for other items have dramatically decreased.

 Effective in your NEXT DROP OFF we will no longer accept categories listed below in order to provide additional space for higher demand items. 

 $1.00 items
The Dollar tree has moved next door! And we just can not compete. Any item priced at $1.00 or below will be donated.
 

USED COSTUME JEWELRY

We are no longer accepting USED Costume Jewelry on consignment. We have seen a dramatic decrease in the sale of used jewelry since January. New costume jewelry on their original cards will still be accepted.

 GOLD/SILVER? BRING IT!
If you have Stamped 10k (+) Gold or 925 Sterling Silver, we are accepting these items on consignment.

GOOD NEWS! Gold and silver jewelry will now be consigned at a higher percentage of 50% commission. 

If you currently have costume jewelry WAITING TO BE PROCESSED (currently 6 months behind due to Covid-19) these items will continue to be processed in the order they were received or you may request these items be returned to you via email thepuzzlepieceshop@gmail.com 
Beginning today all used costume jewelry will be half off until sold or donated.
New Costume Jewelry, Gold & Silver are not included in this sale

BOOKS
The digital age has changed how we read and access print content. Due to the accessibility of digital platforms we have found the demand of books have decreased dramatically, except for children’s books.
Since children story books continue to be in high demand, we will continue to carry this hot seller!
All other books including fiction, non-fiction, audio, instructional, cookbooks, self-help & Inspirational will be donated. 

Beginning today all books, except children’s will be half off until sold or donated.
 

MOVIES & MUSIC CD’S
With Hulu, Amazon Prime, Disney + and other streaming formats such as Pandora these items are no longer in high demand. 
Beginning today all movies (dvds, blu-ray & VHS) will be half off and all music CD’s will be half off as well until sold or donated.
 

The categories listed above will be phased out over the next 45 days.
Please ensure you do not include these items in your next drop off.

 

WHAT IF I HAVE THESE ITEMS WAITING TO BE PROCESSED?
We are currently running 3 weeks behind in processing your last drop off.
Any of these discontinued items will continue to be inventoried in the order they are received and will automatically be included in the half off sales.

 

Times change and living in our current situation, our customers have adapted to this new normal. Much like transitioning from 8 track to cd’s it’s now time to allow the move toward the digital age and make way for more of the items our customers are shopping for.
