ITEMS NOT ACCEPTABLE

NOTE: Seasonal Guidelines are wavied for Fall 2017

  • ***NEW – We no longer accepting VHS tapes or Cassette Tapes.
  • For spring/summer clothing we do not accept velour, velvet, flannel, corduroy, turtlenecks, cable knit or heavy knit sweaters.
  • If your sweater is a flat or smooth knit or cardigan style that your child would actually wear into April, this might be accepted.
  • For fall/winter clothing we do not accept shorts, most tank tops, and swimsuits. If a tank top is designed for “layering” it might be accepted, especially if it is being sold with a long sleeved shirt or sweater.
  • Items that smell like cigarette smoke. Note: if you are a smoker consider washing your consigned items in Purex Crystals.
  • **NEW! – Due to the extensive process of having to treat bedding to be compliant with “Bed Bug Laws”, we will not accept crib comforters or crib bumpers UNLESS they are part of a set of nursery bedding items.
  • Items that have been recalled
  • Any item that may be questionable for lead levels and/or phthalates
  • No underpants unless it is new and in the original package
  • No bottle nipples or pacifiers unless they are new and in original package
  • No rated R movies or M rated video games
  • No items with pilling (We recommend a sweater depillar to remove pilling from items such as pajamas or sweaters. Wal-Mart sells one for about $4.)
  • Any other item that is determined to be unacceptable by the staff
  • Please do not be offended if we return some items to you during your check-in time. The lighting of the facility often shows spots that were not apparent in your home. We are striving to maintain a high quality of merchandise so that our customers will be happy and want to return (to buy your items).
