We are NOT currently accepting trade and will resume at a later date.  Below are policies for when we are accepting trade.

How Does It Work

Because we are currently working with a small staff, have experienced decreased business and are focusing on selling in order to stay in business, we will be accepting trade on a very limited basis AND by appointment ONLY.   Please email us  here or directly at thegreenbeantoys@gmail.com to inquire on available times.  As always we offer shop credit that can be applied to any of the resale items in the shop. We do not offer cash. Additionally please read a few other changes:
  • Appointments can be made via email.  Email is checked regularly while our voicemail at the shop is not.
  • We allow a maximum of 1 trader joes sized bag ONLY of clothing and shoes.  Toys, books, and games can be in a separate bag/bin
  • We ask that you stay nearby (shopping, grabbing a coffee next door, etc) as we review your items so that you may retrieve those we did not accept.  If you would prefer to drop off, those items we did not accept will be donated on the following day if not picked up.
  • We are ONLY taking items that have been in high demand since March.  Please read below for a detailed list of what we will accept.

When Can I Come?
