Selling Tips and Tricks

Turn Your Kids Stuff into Cash


  • No appointment necessary and we will review your items on a first come, first served basis. The best way to bring your items is freshly laundered, laid flat in a tote, basket or box.
  • Check our What We Buy page to see the items that we can purchase from you.
  • We stop buying an hour before closing. This allows us time to get the new product to floor for the best variety.
  • We buy all seasons, all the time.
  • We buy and pay based on condition, style, demand, and brand. We’re looking for ‘next to new’ current styles and items that sell well and will pass on items with pet hair, spots, stains, tears, odors, and too much wear, .
  • Toys and equipment must meet current safety standards, be clean, in good working order, and have all original parts.
  • We will select the items that we would like to purchase and enter them into the computer to generate a quote.
  • If the offer is accepted, we will pay you cash for the selected items on the spot.

Clothes Line


  • The best way to bring your items is freshly laundered, laid flat in a tote, basket or box. Please, no garbage bags. This allows us to buy more from you because of wrinkling as we do pass if excessive wrinkling.
  • Items should be from a smoke free environment and free of pet hair.
  • Apparel and toys should be put together if part of a set.
  • Equipment and toys will be checked to make sure they meet current safety standards and work properly. Equipment and toys must be clean, have all parts, and in good working condition.
  • We will need to see your ID when selling items to us.
  • Feel free to call us to check on items we buy or with any questions, if not sure.
  • In order for us to offer the best selection to you as a buyer, clothing and accessories must be purchased within the last five years.
