    They ask that u don't leave stuff at door when closed... But they don't mind too much. It can get messy if weather or homeless sift.

    They have a ton of cool second hand items to check out, but if you're look for second hand prices, look elsewhere. They are sort of expensive.

    Some stuff is marked stupidly, however that includes some really awesome stuff marked really cheap.

    You can get good quality used furniture here for a cheap price; better than the Salvation Army, that's for sure.

    I shouldn't shop here. Sometimes I think these people are.on crack when they price stuff. Either that or the customers are on crack.
