WE ARE EXPERIENCING A LARGE VOLUME OF DROP OFFS RIGHT NOW AND HAVE TO SLOW THINGS DOWN A BIT.  WHILE THERE ARE NO APPOINTMENTS NEEDED TO BE MADE ONLINE, YOU MAY BE PRESENTED WITH A NUMBER AND A DROP OFF TIME WHEN YOU GET TO THE STORE.  WE APPRECIATE YOUR PATIENCE AT THE STORE!
DROP OFFS - Please bring in your items for consignment.  No appointment is necessary.  Monday to Friday 10am - 5:45pm.  Please wait 7 days between drop offs and have patience if there is a bit of a line.  Only one person is allowed in our drop off area at a time.  If you don't be patient...we will have to go back to appointments!

How to do consignment well...

We can all make a big difference with small changes. Consigning your sellable items is a great start, but the reality is that not all items are able to be resold in the consignment store. Leaving your items at Sproutz & Uturn allows us to sell whats appropriate, thrift whats appropriate and recycle whats left over.

We DO NOT send items overseas, which puts stress on economic systems, but we WILL sell items that are appropriate and get you some dollars back on your efforts to reduce and we WILL send items to Thriftopia getting much needed products into the hands of people in need. Partner with us and help us make a difference!

If we can sell it we will...

If not, there are many places the items travel to:

After this list, we still have approximately 100 garbage bags a week that Diabetes Association picks up for recycling, and we consider other email requests made through sproutzkidz@shaw.ca .

  • Freshly launder

  • Neatly fold

  • Bring in season (same as mall)
