      Unsold Items? Donate it or pick it up?

      We focus on SALES & SELLING!

      Pricing your items right & making sure they’re in excellent condition means shoppers will want to purchase them!

      However, if some items aren’t purchased by shoppers, you can leave them and they are donated on your behalf to local children’s charities such as:

      • Heath Baby Pantry
      • St. Vincent DePaul
      • Heartbeats
      • Seton Parish
      • Lots more

      If you would like your unsold items back please read through the Pick Up Directions prior to arriving and SCHEDULE AN APPOINTMENT for maximum social distancing.

      If you would like your items included in the SUPER SALE (75% items with dots & 50% off items without dots), then LEAVE THEM and at the conclusion of the Super Sale what isn’t sold will be immediately donated. (No pick up option after the Super Sale)
