Prepare for your appointment
it's ALL about condition people!!
Follow these tips to prepare for your appointment:
Great condition items look clean, neat and are in excellent condition.
These items have retained shape and color
and bear little to no signs of wash, wear and tear. No stains, odors or wrinkles!
YES! We want your GREAT condition goods!
GOOD condition items are those items that show signs they were pre-loved!
They may be slightly faded or misshapen,
are pilled or fuzzy and look a bit dull.
Good condition items should NOT be brought for consideration, but should be responsibly DONATED!
Poor condition items have lived their best life! They may be damaged, stained, pilled, misshapen/shrunken, threadbare or have holes in them.
Poor condition items should NOT be brought for consideration, but should responsibly RECYCLED.
NO Garbage bags!
we just won't review items brought in sloppy bags!
