What Kind of Clothing Do You Take?
We are interested in men's and women's contemporary casual clothing; women's sizes 0-14 and men's sizes 30-38. We also purchase accessories, handbags, shoes, costume jewelry and belts. Items should be in good condition (no stains, holes, broken zippers or missing buttons) and no more than 2 years old.
We also look at vintage clothing and accessories dated from the 1950s through the 1970s.

What Kind of Clothing Do You Not Take?
We do not accept the following: children's, pre-teen, maternity, plus sizes or men's suits.
In addition, we do not accept formal wear such as wedding attire, tuxedos, gowns or prom dresses.

Does Clothing Have to Be in Season?
Yes, we buy for immediate resale only and our inventory transitions with the seasons. Please bring in clothing according to what you're currently wearing and what the weather is outside.

How Should I Bring My Clothing In?
We prefer clothing be brought to us right side out and folded neatly in shopping bags, not on hangers. Items do not have to be ironed or dry cleaned, but should be in good condition - no stains, holes, broken zippers or missing buttons. Please select your best 25 items per visit.

How Do You Decide What to Sell My Clothing For?
We price items based on a combination of factors: styling, condition, size, age, brand and original cost. Please keep in mind we may not purchase merchandise based on season, condition and our current inventory levels. Also, we may request receipts for unworn merchandise or high end luxury items.

How and When Do I Get Paid?
You will receive 50% of our retail price. For example if we decide to price your jeans at $20, you will get $10.
You will be paid on the spot, by cash or check, for anything we decide to purchase.

Do You Take Donations?
No. However, there are several locations nearby to drop off unwanted clothing.

What If I Need To Cancel My Appointment?
You can cancel your appointment up to 2 hours before the time that it is scheduled without penalty. If you miss an appointment without notifying us at least two hours beforehand you will be charged a $10 fee which will be applied to your next appointment.

To change or cancel your appointment, please go to our website www.mustardseedshop.com and click on appointments. Type your email address in the 'login' box at the top right corner of the page and scroll past FAQs to the bottom. There you will find your existing appointment as well as a box to cancel. We cannot take calls to schedule, change or cancel appointments as we are busy buying clothes throughout the day. The system does not allow you to log in to change or cancel your appointment within 2 hours of your scheduled time.
