Please Donate
 

Your clean, new, and gently used donations are greatly appreciated!

Q: Does my blender have to be working to donate it?
A: Yes, any item that we cannot sell becomes a real liability in disposal costs. Many new appliances are not designed to be repaired - unfortunately, they must be discarded when they no longer work. Find local facilities for recycling these items wherever possible.

Q: Can I trade my old chesterfield in for a newer piece of furniture?
A: We would welcome the donation of your furniture in good condition, but we are not able to offer trade-ins.

Q: My Uncle Henry gave me a large owl, preserved by a taxidermist. Will you accept this as a donation?
A: Some animal and bird species are protected by Wildlife Acts. We are not able to handle these items, but suggest that you contact the appropriate government agency.

Q: Our maple crib was used by all my children and grandchildren and is in very good condition. Can I drop it off for someone else to use?
A: Government safety standards are enforced on all baby equipment. We do not accept cribs as well as car seats of any kind because of the potential for accidents and injuries.

Q: We are down-sizing to a smaller home and no longer need the Mintonchina set from my mother. Is this something you can use?
A: Yes, we hold Silent Auctions for items of special value and have many customers looking for antiques and collectibles.
