Once you hand in the items, they will be put on a special rack until the store owner can examine them. If the items are desirable, and the store wishes to consign them, we will put them on the floor as soon as possible. If any of the items are not desirable, we will call you and ask you to pick them up.

If any of the items are not accepted for consignment, you must pick them up by the following Saturday. If you do not pick them up, they will be donated to charity.
