              On average, our consignors sell 75% of their items and receive a $400+ deposit. What sells is determined by shoppers. Maximize your sales by prepping your BEST items, and pricing them attractively.

              If some items aren’t purchased by shoppers, you can retrieve them during the designated Pick Up hours. Follow the  provided Pick Up Directions if getting everything back is important to you. Pick is up is not required.

              To maximize your sales, you can opt to leave unsold items so they are included in the 50%/75% off “Super Sale.” At its conclusion, all unsold items are immediately donated on your behalf to St. Vincent dePaul and other charities, who greatly value the donation.
