A: Due to space concerns, Cheapskates cannot accept any items that are overly worn or damaged. We encourage customers to take advantage of local clothing donation bins if an item cannot be sold in our store.

A: We are able to accept items for consignment throughout the day, however all equipment and apparel are subject to our seasonal consignment rules. Check out consignment rules for more details.
