What we accept

We accept quality, gently used items that are ready to sell. We accept all types of clothes, furniture (living room, dining room, bedroom, etc.), housewares (dinnerware, pictures, china, other decorative items, seasonal items), jewelry, shoes, purses, etc. We don’t accept mattresses, large appliances, or items that might be subject to recall (i.e. car seats).

We do offer donation pickups only for furniture.
We are not able to sell items that have stains, tears, or that smell. We are also not able to paint, stitch, fix, weld, etc. items; we simply don’t have the man power or time due to the number of donations we receive.
We only accept donations, which means we don’t sell items via consignment.
