INVENTORY CATCH UP BREAK PERIODS

As fast as we do process, we continue to receive more totes in a day than we can physically process. As you could image, this creates a backlog of totes. In an effort to maintain a manageable balance between drop offs and processing and storage, we take a drop off break the last week of every month.

We do not accept consignment totes during these following dates:

 The last full week of every month ( see dates below)

All of July (employee vacations)

ALL of December ( first 2 weeks decor only, then no drop offs until the new year)

Over Size Items are limited to

3  Per Drop Off

Oversize items are items too big for your tote:

​Lamp, picture, large pillow, bike, etc


In-Store Shopping Hours

​Closed: Sun/Mon​​

Tue - Fri: 9am - 5pm   

Saturday: 9am - 4pm 

Holiday Clothing & Decor

You may include any & all Holiday decor in any of your regular drop off totes​​​ ALL YEAR LONG. 

​​

Q: Why just 20 pieces of clothing?

A:  Having all consignors bring in the same amount of clothing ensures everyone is provided equal space and time on the racks. Plus it helps us to be able to process your tote in a timely manner without being bogged down in a tote full of clothing. 


Q: What about infant clothing? It's so small and doesn't take up much space
A:  Yes, infant clothing as well. As small as infant clothing is, these small items take more time to process due to all the snaps, buttons, zippers and variety of styles. 


Q: Do I have to bring just clothing in my tote or can I bring other items too?
A:  Yes you can bring other items in your tote, just keep clothing to 20 pieces per drop off
