This list is not exclusive, but rather what we are in most need of!
PLEASE READ updated 1/13:
Please discard obviously stained clothes, toys with missing pieces, and any items that are not clearly re-sellable.
Going through bags of stained clothes slows the entire process. We would love to be able to open up more appointments!
If your trade is full of these items we will no longer be donating to a non-profit on your behalf; they will need to be picked back up.

Send a picture of equipment to our text-line: 775-305-2622
We will respond and let you know if we need the item(s) and can give you a store credit quote upon request. Please message your name and what store your trading at. Feel free to save number and text us anytime!
1. We only trade for gently used items. Please go through your clothing items and discard visibly stained/ripped items beforehand. Everything must be laundered and free of odor/animal hair. We will stop going through your trade if your items are not pre-sorted. We will not donate dirty/stained clothes either.
2. You can choose to pick-up or for us to donate any items we do not need. If you choose to pick-up, you will need to come get your items 72 hours after your Trade is finalized. We donate items to Friends of Multiple Sclerosis Society Reno or a local Non-Profit when possible.
We cannot donate equipment items for you; only clothing, books and toys. If you do not pick-up the large item after requests, we will charge a disposal fee from your credit.
3. We love toys! Please group toys in zip locks or recycled grocery bags when you can so we know what goes together. Feel free to group random like-items i.e. cars, heroes, barbie clothes... whatever together and we can resell. Also, we LOVE vintage toys!
If the item needs new batteries, we can replace them for cost of batteries from your credit.
4. Your store credit is good for any gently used items in the store. We do carry a lot of new products from popular brands that will need to be purchased separately.
*Unused Store credit will automatically expire one year after it is issued.* We do not pay cash for items.
5. We do not go through your items on the spot, we go in order in which they are received. We will text you as soon as it's done!
We kindly ask for up to 10 days to go through your items, average is 4 days, it just depends on business volumes and staffing.
The amount we offer for your items is a percentage based on what we think we can re-sell the item for. We are not a consignment store, so we issue credit before anything sells. We inherently take on the risk of the item not selling or having to reduce prices over time. We base our resale value on condition as it comes into us and brand.
Generally, most soft goods have a flat rate of pay based on four brand levels: Low-End, Standard, Premium and Super-Premium
Low-End Brands, such as Garanimals, we mostly pass on.
Standard Brands examples are Cat + Jack & Carters.
Premium Brand examples are Hannah Andersson, Gymboree, Tea, Janie &Jack.
Super-Premium Brands are typically performance wear items like Patagonia.
Thank you so much for reading and for your time + effort!
Seriously, thank you.
This process ensures we can take more items from a broad range of traders, pay top store credit totals and keep our store full of quality items!!

Our success is driven by our awesome community. Our store is a space to enjoy and let the kids shop in a store made for them! With very little options to shop for kids in SLT your continuous support is much needed & appreciated!
The economic footprint of the production of clothing and toys is huge. Shopping secondhand not only saves you money but precious resources too! Whether choosing to donate or Trade with us, your items will go back into the cycle without waste and provides economic options for other families so shop & feel good!
We work very hard to keep a good balance of items in the store to provide you with a one-stop shop full of savings! We meticulously clean, organize & label items to provide an easy and elevated thrift experience. This way you know the store credit you receive will go towards new (to you!) quality items every time.
We have a new baby/new location! Carson Valley Kids Store in Minden, NV
