I went to this place on the recommendation of a friend who had sold some clothing there. On my first visit to this small, crowded "store", the lady working said she was not the owner and didn't know anything about when the owner buys clothes or if I should drop them off or wait. No business card or anything printed with a number on it, she wrote down the number and name of the owner. I returned the following week on the employee's suggestion, and met the owner, Linda. I told Linda I was there on the recommendation of a friend, and I had a ton of clothes to sell. The first question she asked was if i had had a garage sale. Yes, I had. Then she stated that she would not buy anything from me because "everything was picked over and if it didn't sell at your garage sale then it won't sell here." What she failed to ask was how large my garage sale was, she had no idea that I started out with over 3,000 articles of clothing, most of which was new or only worn a few times, especially the maternity clothing. I had taken what was left over (at least 1,000+) articles of clothing, washed and dried it and bagged it up with my contact info on there. I have about 20 over-sized plastic bags (these bags could fit a twin sized mattress in them) ready to go.....nowhere! I felt like she was very rude. If she was experienced, she would have asked more questions. She lost out on brand new Carters, Gymboree, Children's Place, Gap, Old Navy, Motherhood, and many, many other high quality children's & maternity clothes. Oh well...her loss! I'm just going to sell them somewhere else!
