ALLOW TIME WHEN YOU DROP OFF FOR US TO SCREEN FOR QUALITY BEFORE YOU PLACE THE ITEMS ON THE SALES FLOOR.

IF YOU LEAVE BEFORE YOUR ITEMS ARE SCREENED, WE WILL PLACE ANY "UNACCEPTABLE" ITEMS IN THE DONATION COLLECTION. Please do not be offended if we ask you to take back (or donate) some of your items. We strive to be known for having excellent quality merchandise, thus attracting more shoppers and selling more of your items.
