Feel free to bring in one bag or box of goods at a time during business hours. (For larger collections, please call ahead.) We offer 33% of resale value in cash, or 50% of resale value in trade. We are a small store with limited storage capacity so we must be selective in our buys and trades.

Currently, we are looking for: womens, mens, & childrens vintage clothing and accessories from the 1990s and before (especially 1960s & 1970s), vintage homegoods and decor (glassware, chalkware, pottery, bedlinens, textile art, wall art [paintings, posters, tapestries, crewels/embroidery, latchhook, macrame, etc.]), novelty collectibles--especially owls, mushrooms, frogs, daisies, sunflowers, elephants, etc.) from the 1960s & 1970s, vinyl records (rock/pop/folk records), vintage paperback & sometimes hardback books (classics, science fiction, pulp & counter culture literature especially), costume/novelty jewelry, vintage boots (cowboy boots, engineer boots, campus boots, go-go boots, granny boots, combat boots, etc.), tooled & fringed leather (vests, purses, jackets, belts, etc.), and vintage ephemera (pinbacks, posters, cards, etc.). Don't see it listed? Just ask! We will consider anything cool and groovy!

On a very limited case-by-case basis: We encourage you to call ahead during store hours to (779) 202-1282 if you plan to bring in these kind of items. Wedding dresses (formal/bridesmaid dresses are okay!), completely fur coats (fur collars are okay!), clothes made within the past 20 years, fine china/porcelain, clear/crystal glassware, fine jewelry, tea towels, complete collections, certain vinyl records (classical, religious, jazz, other non-rock/pop records), furniture, bicycles, electronics, tools and primitives.

We buy outright. We do not have the ability to do consignment.

Not sure if we buy what you're selling? Just give us a call at (779) 202-1282 during business hours.

Thank you for shopping small!
