Most Wanted Items

We don't require appointments, so we invite you to come and visit our store any time that is convenient for you. When you arrive, we will have you sign in, so we can keep your items identified, and give you a time frame. The wait time will depend on the customers we have ahead of you, and the volume that they have. We do this everyday, and work hard to take care of all our customers in a timely fashion. Usually it's no more than 20-40 minutes if we're busy. We buy all seasons, all the time. We are SELECTIVE on clothing, since our customers are picky in what they buy from us. We ask that the clothing items are brought to us in any container except plastic bags. Laundry baskets work well, boxes, or totes are wonderful as well. We ask that things are freshly laundered, folded, with outfits together, and recent styles. Our customers are looking for the 'best of the best,' so that's what we want to fill our racks with. Keep in mind, we would like to also see any shoes, toys, books, or equipment you are no longer using. We will go through your collection, and come up with one price for everything combined. We will offer to pay you once we are finished with your order, or you can use that dollar amount in the store.
