Tips on Selling

We want to buy everything that we can buy. Here are some tips on selling to us:

** We make all buying decisions based on what sells well in our stores. If we pass on an item it is because it has not sold well for us. This does not mean there is anything necessarily wrong with it, but if our customers aren't buying it from us we will not be buying it for sale in our store.**

  • You need to bring a government issued photo ID in order to sell items to our store.
  • Clothing needs to be freshly laundered and folded neatly in a box, basket, or bin. Clothing needs to be free of pet hair and odors. We will pass on anything that has pet hair or a disagreeable order. Our customers do not buy items in these conditions from us so we don't buy items in these condition.
  • We are looking for styles that sold new in the malls in the last few years.
  • If you are bringing an item with inflatable wheels, the wheels must be inflated.
  • If you are bringing a large battery operated toy (like Power Wheels) the battery must be charged.
  • You will need to assemble equipment (like high chairs, pack-n-plays, exersaucers, swings, etc) in the store for evaluation.
  • Bikes need to have kick-stands or training wheels in order for us to purchase them.


Our Buyers work increadibly hard every day. They are making buying decisions based on the store's guidelines. Attempting to pressure, belittle, or initimiate our buyers will not be tolerated at any time.
