We allow a maximum of 6 brown paper bags per appoinment, or equivalent.
That's about 3 reusuable tote bags, 2 medium boxes or 1 plastic tub. Toys do best in boxes.
We consider equipment separate from the above limits.
We love toys! Please group toys in zip locks or recycled plastic bags when you can so we know what goes together.
Feel free to group random items i.e. cars, heroes, barbie clothes... whatever together and we can resell.
If the item needs new batteries, we can replace them for cost of batteries from your credit.
When you drop off your trade items you choose whether you want to pick up what we do not take or for us to donate them on your behalf.
We donate items to Friends of Multiple Sclerosis Society Reno or a local Non-Profit. We cannot donate equipment items for you; only clothing, books and toys. That is why we request a quick picture of your gear, to avoid you needing to pick it up.
