And we pay CASH ON THE SPOT!

Please limit your clothes, shoes, toys to 3 containers per family per day (or 1 trashbag or 1 oversized bin).

We want to be able to pay out to as many different families as possible.

Thank you for understanding!

We buy and pay out CASH EVERY DAY up until 1 hour before closing time. Please consider bringing your items in early to give us enough time to process your items.

What we look for when you bring in your items is that they are freshly laundered, odor-free, and don't have pilling. On equipment and toys, we ensure that they are not recalled, have no corrosion on metal parts and in the battery compartment, are clean and complete.

We buy most items that are kids and baby related, but there are a few things we DO NOT purchase - here is a quick list of those:

  • no car seats or car booster seats
  • no diaper bags or bag packs
  • no bedding items
  • no maternity clothing
  • no bibs, socks, underwear
  • no cribs and larger furniture items (exception: toddler character beds)
  • no food related items
  • no breast pumps
  • no plush toys/animals
  • no bathtubs or bath toys
  • no diaper pails
  • no baby playmats

We are currently overstocked in newborn and baby sizes. For that reason, we are more selective in sizes up to 18 months. We do need summer clothing and boys clothing the most! :)
