Accepted Items

We depend on our consignors to only bring quality items in EXCELLENT CONDITION that are clean, pressed, current, and free of stains.  This is important to guarantee an excellent shopping experience, as well as to give you the best chance of your items selling.  Because of this, we reserve the right to refuse any item at drop-off that does not meet the guidelines.
