This used to be a great store when it was SMALLER. But now they have expanded too much and try to have too much- and it has lost the personality. Rows and rows of racks is just not fun for resale, in my opinion. They now take 60% of the selling price, which they reduce gradually. After 90 days, if it is still in the store, they keep all the money. They price things WAY too high- and now with their policy of making an appointment to drop off your stuff and only 2 tubs at a time- it is too much of a hassle. They give back stuff that is perfectly decent. They need to have some experienced clerks in the take in and have those young gals putting it out on the floor. They have no idea what an antique or collectible is worth and the prices on those are ridiculously high. Also, when they have their 50% off sale, anything you have there is 50% off- even if you dropped it off the day before. And don't expect them to tell you that tomorrow is 50% off. I'd rather donate to Goodwill than take it here and I think there are a couple other shops in town that have better resale clothing deals.

I've been really impressed with the appearance of the Iowa City store! I'm not sure what they did differently, but it looks great and my stuff is selling so much better than it used to. Whatever it is, keep up the good work!

I don't like this store. I have found some good deals and some not so good deals. I really don't recommend taking stuff to sell. They have (at least 4 times before I gave up) taken good quality stuff like brand new name brand shoes--new price $89--and then told me they didn't sell at any price. I am not sure that they are dishonest--I think they hire young, inexperienced staff who can't keep things straight.

Now, I have visited STUFF ECT in Coralville and reviewed it but a friend gently reminded me that although they have the same name, STUFF ETC. in Iowa City could be entirely different!...She was wrong!

Not only is this store fille dwith overpriced, low quality re-sale items but it has the same sort of musty smell as the Coralville store as well! I realize that they cannot help some of the mustiness but the quality is disappointing! I mean I can travel less than a mile away to the local K-MART and find better bargains on NEW clothing!

So, I am sorry but I must rate this store as low as the Coralville one. it is a disappointing, less than quality re-sale shop and in my opinion, not worth making the trip (considering the price of gas) even across town to visit! you know, the way the stores these days are clearancing oput items...you don't really need to frequent this store...just head on out to the mega mall in Coralville and make the rounds...you will find more there than you do here!

PROS: ...not much
CONS: ....too high priced...low quality items
