◾Please note the time to pick up your leftover items – 4:30 PM.  We ask that you please not arrive early, as you will have to wait (it takes quite a bit of time to get items ready to go, so if you arrive early, you’ll have to wait).  Coming right on time will ensure that your items are ready for you to pick up, and you should be able to be in and out quickly.

◾Any items that we find stains on and were not noticed at check-in will be on a table all together. They will not be separated. It will be your responsibility to go through the table if you want them.  Please know that we are trying to make the quality of our sale the best we can. If you sell with us, then you more than likely buy from us, so it will benefit you also.
