*NOTE: If you are unable to pick-up your items, you must arrange for a family member or friend to do so in your absence or you can donate your items.  Please notate that on the bottom of your consignor waiver form.

After the sale, your items will be sorted and ready for you to pick-up at the scheduled consignor pick-up time.  It is our hope that we will be able to tell you , "you sold it all!"  But in case you have a few items remaining, please arrive for pick-up within the scheduled time as we are unable to hold any items.  All items remaining will be donated to our children's charity.

IMPORTANT: Items not picked-up on time will be donated immediately following consignor pick-up.
