Here's everything you need to know!


6/2/2022 Update: We ARE currently buying clothing from the public on a

limited basis! In particular we are looking for larger/plus sizes and mens'

or masculine vintage clothing, as well as alt/rave/goth styles. We do not buy

prom/wedding dresses at this time. Please read through ALL the text below

before you bring items in. Thank you!!

What we are looking to buy: 


We are always seeking fun vintage clothing from the 1950s to the early 2000s, as well as newer, trendy, gently used items. 


We LOVE vintage!


Any bright, colorful, fun, edgy, punk, goth, glam, avant-garde, alt, special, or otherwise cool clothing items from any decade, including tees, casual clothes, denim, leather, office wear, party wear, cocktail dresses, rave wear, lingerie, pajamas, and robes. 


As well as….


Modern (recently manufactured) clothing with a retro twist, streetwear, or anything fashion-forward or alternative in style, especially from independent designers or any niche online shops (like Dolls Kill, Modcloth, etc). ***We generally are not looking for basics or clothing from mainstream “fast fashion” brands like Forever 21, Charlotte Russe, Deb, Asos, Old Navy, Shein, Romwe, Wild Fable, Mossimo, Apostrophe, etc - but if you have an extra-special item from one of those brands that you think belongs in the store, go ahead and bring it in!

We generally are seeking seasonal clothing 1-2 months before the season hits (for example, in the summer, we'll be looking to buy fall clothing.)


We are always looking for vintage and modern MENSWEAR/UNISEX ITEMS!


And we are always looking for vintage and modern PLUS SIZE ITEMS!




Shoes! Hats! Belts! Bags! And any other accessories in good, wearable condition!




We do not offer a consignment option for vintage clothing. We only buy items outright. We generally do not buy and sell high-end designer items that would be valued over $200, we're just not that kind of store. We most likely cannot offer you a fair price on items like that so please don't try to talk us into buying your expensive pieces.


A few things we don’t accept: housewares, trinkets, or furniture. Underwear, socks, tights, or pantyhose unless they're new with tags or in unopened packaging. Kids’ clothing. Items that are soiled, have noticeable holes or stains, deodorant marks inside or out, pet hair, or foul odors. Please only bring in clean, gently-used items!

How does it work?

Just gather up some items you think we may be interested in buying. We ask that customers bring in no more than 2 bags of clothing at a time. You might want to print and fill out a clothing intake form (located below) to save time, but we'll also have printed copies at the store. Just stop by the store during normal business hours and let one of us know you're wanting to sell some clothes. Depending on how busy/staffed we are, we may be able to evaluate your clothing right then while you wait. Otherwise, you may leave your bags at the store (please be sure to label them with your name and phone number) and we can text or call you once we get a chance to go through them. EDIT: At this time, because we have limited staff and counter space to go through items, we ask that you bring your items in bags and plan on leaving them with us until the next Wednesday. We will go though them on our closed days (which are Mon/Tues), make you an offer via text or email when we're done, and you may pick up any items we're not buying the following week, or just let us know if you'd like us to donate them for you.

We'll let you know our offer. Once you accept, we'll pay you in cash (check, venmo, or paypal, actually) or store credit - your choice. We pay you 30% of the selling price in cash, or 50% of the selling price in store credit. (For example - if you bring in a t-shirt that we think we will be able to sell for $15, we'll offer you $5 in cash for it, or $7.50 in store credit.) 

Store credit may be used to purchase any blue tagged items (that's most of what's in the store). Sorry, yellow tagged/consignment items are excluded (these include items from local artists and designers that remain the property of those individuals, so store credit doesn't apply.)
