OPEN 7 DAYS A WEEK 10:00-6:00pm Warminster Thrift Store donations center
Your items will be out on the selling floor for 60 days per the contract. If your item happens to NOT sell after the 60 days plus (5 day grace period), the computer reads the “barcode” tag as “expired” at the point of sale. What this means is the store would receive the money for that sold item because it is now selling after the contract time frame. When this happens more than likely the item has been marked down to 50% off.
We do all that we can to help you (and us) make money, but sadly some items just don’t ever sell. You are more than welcome to pick up your item(s) within 5 days after the 60 day consignment period if you just aren’t ready to part with them yet. Just be AWARE… YOU are required to find your item(s) on the floor once the expiration date is up. We will print a list of items we still have available in our store. Any item(s) left after the 60 days + 5 day pick up day period will automatically become the property of Penny Buck Junction and we reserve the right to do what we want with these items…. this includes reselling them for our profit or donating them. If your item(s) did not sell even after being on sale, we will donate them to local people, who are grateful to get them for free. We however do reserve the right to retag and resell your item as we deemed fit.
Sure….but we have found that the consignor’s selling price is often very unrealistic. Our goal is to sell your items and make everyone a little money as well as make a customer really happy because he/she got such an amazing deal. We will research your item on Ebay or other sites that sell used fashions under a “sold” listing and price your item the same or a bit higher. We always tell our consignors that selling used clothing is very much like driving a new car off the dealer’s lot. The minute you drive away the value of your car dropped to half if not more. The resale business is getting harder and harder with all the different sites selling clothing on-line. So we will do our best to get you the most money the market will reap.
We are so sorry about this, but 90 out of 100 time the item was right in front of you but is often passed over when you are looking so hard. However, it could be possible that the item was stolen, but highly unlikely. Sadly, we do have sick people who have [sticky fingers] who visit our store. We do EVERYTHING we can to prevent this from happening, but people who steal are good at it and we just can’t watch everyone every minute. If we determine that the item was stolen, we are very sorry, but we DO NOT pay the consignor on a stolen item. However, if the item shows up because it was overlooked you will receive your commission split when sold.
Of course. Penny Buck Junction will give you one but we will NOT write in a value for your donations, as this is something you and your accountant will work out together.
