We are very excited to be the first gear shop in town to offer a full time consignment area!
We will consign the following items:
Cookware and Stoves
Gently used clothing and footwear
Kayaks & Accessories
If you have something that you would like to consign not listed above, please call the shop.
How this works:
When you come in with your items, we will look it over, discuss with you what we feel the item is worth at retail and then sign some paperwork. We will display the item for sale for no less than 60 days, and no more than 180 days. Should you wish to work out a specific time frame for sale, we will include that in our contract. We will discount the item 10% every 30 days in order to find the right price for the market and to get your item sold. Should you wish not to have your item discounted, we will include that in the contract, and the contract length cannot be longer than 90 days.
Frequently Asked ?'s
A full copy of our consignment agreement can be found at the bottom of this page.
1. What do you buy?
As a consignment store, we do not BUY any items. We agree to display your item in our shop and in return we collect a commission when it sells. You will receive the rest of the profit. This differs from pawn or resale shops, which buy your item outright. With consignment, since we don't invest our own money to purchase your item and therefore don't rely on a price markup, you are usually able to make more of a profit. We will take gently used clothing and footwear, but the decision is up to our staff whether to put it in our shop.
2. How much do I get?
Our commission can vary depending on the value of an item. Typically, it is a 50/50 split for items less than $20.00. However we keep only a 35% commission for items over $20.00. Additionally, should you choose to turn your portion of the sale into store credit, you will be given an extra 10% of the sale applied to that credit. Please see our consignment agreement at the bottom of this page for details.
3. After my item sells, when can I get my money?
We will have a check available for items sold each Monday. Checks not picked up within one week will be mailed (minus the stamp cost). We will notify you when your item sells.
4. If my item doesn't sell, what happens?
Most items do sell, but sometimes the right match for your item just can't be found. We have regularly scheduled markdowns and a donation procedure. You can pick up your unsold items at any time and no fee is charged. Please see our consignment agreement below for details.
