Please ensure the tote is of appropriate size, if you can fit your whole family in it, we will not be able to lift on to our sorting table (40lbs/20gal)

We're open seven days a week.  10a-8p Monday through Saturday and Noon-5p on Sunday.  Closed on most National Holidays.  Check our Facebook page for the most up to date info.  When we are open, we are buying!

Need to make a return?  We accept returns up to seven days after the date of purchase, as long as the price tag is still attached and you have the original receipt.  We know it is easier to shop without the little ones in tow, so feel free to buy what you like, have a fashion show at home, and return the items that don't make the cut.
We look forward to seeing you soon!
