What about recalled items?         

It is important to us that only safe products are offered at our sale, therefore we ask that each consignor carefully check that none of their items have been recalled before bringing them to our sale. As the seller/owner of an item, it is the responsibility of the consignor to ensure that each item meets the required safety standards.
Please use the following resources to ensure that your item has not been recalled and is not considered dangerous or un-safe:
Consumer Product Safety Commission's (CPSC) Searchable Recall list
Note Regarding CRIBS
