How To Sell

1/1/23 – BUYING PAUSE! Our intake station will be closed for all of January 2023. We will not be taking any drop offs, appointments, or walk-in sellers during this time. We will use this time to catch up on the extremely high volume we received in December and balance out inventory needs during a slow time of year. Thank you for your understanding!

IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT: We are experiencing a very high volume of sellers; thank you for your patience. Drop-offs will be taking us 1-2 weeks to get to.

We buy every week Tuesday – Saturday (we do occasionally pause when we exceed our capacity for space!). We do not buy on Sundays and Mondays (please no drop-offs either; we need these days to catch up!) There are three ways to sell with us:

  1. Walk-in/On-the-Spot Selling – 2 standard grocery-size bags or less! Walk in with 2 standard grocery tote bags or less from 10-5pm, Tuesday through Saturday, and sell on the spot! When arriving, you’ll sign in and we will look through your items while you remain in the store. Please keep in mind that there may be others ahead of you. Sorry, no walk-ins on Sunday/Monday at this time.
  2. Appointments – 2 large tote storage bins or equivalent For larger loads, we will take appointments and look through your items on the spots while you remain in the stores or they can be dropped off. Please call or text us to book a selling appointment for your larger load at 607-216-7851. Please do not show up with larger loads unannounced, as we have limited space and this helps us work within our confines. 
  3. Larger Gear Items – please check in with us! We can accept these items in as walk-ins, however we ask that you text us a photo or call to check in with us about them ahead of time. This will allow us to confirm our interest, which can vary depending on demand, condition, current inventory, etc. Call or text us at 607-216-7851.

We do our best to comb over your stash as quickly as possible, however sometimes staffing affects our ability to do so; we appreciate your patience as we all continue to navigate the pandemic and new protocols.

Still have questions? Refer to our Q&A section below or call our store, our buyers would be happy to help.

We are buying fall & winter items! We always buy the best of all seasons, however are more inclined to purchase items such as outerwear, winter boots, rainwear, long sleeved tops and sweaters, long pants, wool socks, etc. We are not buying shorts and tank tops at this time.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are you looking for name brands?
Brand is one of the factors that we take into consideration when we buy and price, so you will receive more for higher-end brands such as Mini Boden, Hatley, Bogs, Lands End, Plae, North Face, Columbia, Crew Cuts, Tea, Gap, Naartjie, Patagonia, Keen, REI, Kamik, Tucker & Tate, Hanna Andersson, and See Kai Run.  However, we are happy to look at most brands, especially when items are sturdy, stylish and in good condition.
Can I drop off my items and come back?
Yes, however you do need an appointment to sell! Due to the pandemic, our protocol is to allow items to sit for at least 24 hours before we handle them. When we are done going over your items, we will let you know what we can offer you in check/PayPal or store credit.
When do I get paid for the items I bring in?
We buy clothes and most items “outright” and pay you the same day either 30% in check/PayPal or 40% in store credit. For highly sought after brands/items, we pay a higher percentage (50% in store credit or 40% check/PayPal)! We are not currently offering cash payments.
For larger/higher price items, we may consign them which means you will be paid after the item sells. When we consign an item, we work with you to find a selling price that will work in our market. You will receive 50% in check/PayPal or 60% in store credit after the item sells (and after a 7 day return period).  Consignment is a good option for special, higher-cost, items and items that are great but may take us a bit longer to sell. Plus, you get a higher percentage payout!
After we have gone through your items (and discussed possible consignment items), we will tell you what we can offer you.
How does store credit work?
You will receive 10% more if you choose to be paid with store credit. We will create a store credit account in your name.  You can use it that day or whenever you’d like. Use your store credit to purchase anything in the store, including our new products, classes, and Diaper Service.
What toys do you take?
We buy classic toys in good condition.  See “Things We Do Not Buy”.
What are things you do NOT buy?
  • Painted metal or painted plastic toys (with a date earlier than 2009)
  • Painted wood toys that do not have the brand imprinted on them.
  • Kids’ jewelry and charms.

How do I sell baby equipment?
Please text us at 607-216-7851 to check with us about selling larger baby gear. We love to see pictures along with the brand and model included. We often consign baby equipment, pricing at half of what it sells retail; up or down depending on condition. Once your item sells, (and after the 7 day return period) you will be paid 50% of the selling price in cash or 60% in store credit. We will check the item for recalls when you get here (we need a legible model number). You can also check for recalls, yourself,  before bringing the item in. Just go to and enter the model number. If you have large items that are awkward or heavy, you are welcome to pull your car up to our Clinton St. side door to unload or call us and we can come out and help!  Call us (607-216-7851) when you get to the store, and we will open the side door for you.
What kind of mama items do you buy?
We buy current style maternity clothes, nursing bras and clothing in good condition, pregnancy pillows, and maternity support bands.
