An Update to our Buy Policy

There is a 2 bin maximum not counting toys and equipmnent. We want the best of your stuff! We recommend going through your items at home and bringing in the best of what you have. Items do not have to be name brand. We are looking for items that are clean and free of tears and stains. We are hoping this brings on less wait times for you and makes selling your stuff more convenient. We buy until one hour before close each day.

New Buying Hours:

Monday - Friday: 9a - 7p

Saturday: 10a - 5p

Sunday: 12 - 4p
