Free Local Pickup
Free Curbside Pickup is available in South Pasadena, CA on Monday August 10th by appointment only. After you pay for your items you will be able to reserve a pickup slot. We are spacing out appointments to help promote social distancing and create a safe pickup environment. Please wear a mask when picking up your items and understand you will be responsible for loading any furniture into your vehicle.

Rules of the Website
In order to be fair to all customers, your cart will only be reserved for 20 minutes from the time that you place your first item in your cart. This time includes the time it will take you to checkout so please have your debit/credit card ready. To guarantee that you will be able to purchase the item you wish to purchase, we strongly encourage you to checkout as soon as you put each item in your cart. After 20 minutes your cart will be deleted and other customers will be able to purchase any items you placed in your cart.
The cart hold system works very well, but is not perfect. If you want an item we strongly encourage you to checkout immediately. We apologize in advance for any bugs or errors in the system. We are doing our best as a small, local business to create a fair system that works well. This website works best when using a desktop or laptop computer.
All items are sold as-is. We will describe all items to the best of our ability but please understand that everything is used (and likely vintage) so there will be some signs of wear. Signs of wear include but are not limited to scratches, marks and tarnishing. Please read all item descriptions and view all photos. Please use the zoom feature on the photos to check for any signs of wear or damage. We will write in the description if there are any chips, cracks or other large signs of wear. No returns or exchanges are permitted. All items sold are final sale.
Sales Tax & Resale Licenses
For all items sold on this website, sales tax will be collected based on the delivery or pickup address. We will not be accepting resale licenses. If you are purchasing an item for resale, please be sure to keep your receipt in your records. The California Department of Tax & Fee Administration has a section on the quarterly tax return where you are able to deduct the sale tax you paid once you sell an item. This is permitted under Regulation 1701, "Tax-paid Purchases Resold." It is fairly easy to do when you file your quarterly taxes, simply look for the "Cost of Tax-Paid Purchases Resold Prior to Use" section of your "Adjustments". For more information on how this works, please see the CDTFA website, by clicking here. You can also call the department's customer service line at 1-800-400-7115 and they can walk you through the steps.
