(What happens to items that don’t sell?)
Items that don’t sell by the end of the 90-day consignment period and that are not returned to the consignor are eligible for donation. Once a month, our team members gather for a “donation party” to sort expired items. Some items are donated to local non-profits. Others are resold through other resale channels that have a wider audience than our store. 100% of the proceeds from those sales are donated to non-profit organizations chosen by our team.
