Five questions and answers to help you know what we are looking for!
1. Does my blender have to be working to donate it?
A: Yes, any item that we cannot sell becomes a real liability in disposal costs. Many new appliances are not designed to be repaired - unfortunately, they must be discarded when they no longer work. Find local facilities for recycling these items wherever possible.
2. Can I trade my old chesterfield in for a newer piece of furniture?
A: We would welcome the donation of your furniture in good condition, but we are not able to offer trade-ins.
3. My Uncle Henry gave me a large owl, preserved by a taxidermist. Will you accept this as a donation?
A. Some animal and bird species are protected by Wildlife Acts. We are not able to handle these items, but suggest that you contact the appropriate government agency.
4. Our maple crib was used by all my children and grandchildren and is in very good condition. Can I drop it off for someone else to use?
A. Government safety standards are enforced on all baby equipment. Many shops do not accept baby items of any kind because of the potential for accidents and injuries.
5. We are down-sizing to a smaller home and no longer need the Minton china set from my mother. Is this something you can use?
A. Yes, many shops hold Silent Auctions for items of special value and have many customers looking for antiques and collectibles.
