- We will start taking Prom dresses on December 1st! They must be cleaned, current and in perfect condition.
- Spring items are being accepted January 15th including: capris, jeans, short-sleeve tops.
- We will not be accepting consignment on Black Friday or Small Business Saturday to allow our staff to be with their families!
We will no longer be accepting clothing in any type of trash bag. This wrinkles the clothes and makes them unsellable.
We will be standing pretty firm on 25 items of clothing a day to make it fair so that all consignor’s items make it to the sale’s floor. If you have any questions or are coming from a long way away, just give us a call and we will get it worked out!
- Our Ames Duck Worth Wearing and The Loft locations are participating in the Toys for Tots toy drive. We will have a box on site for new, unwrapped toys at both Duck Worth Wearing Ames and The Loft.
- To pay it forward we will off $5 off your purchase for donating a new unwrapped toy for those in need in our community!
We have a lot of new blankets, scarves, jewelry, as well as ISU gear! These are perfect for holiday gifts and stocking stuffers.
We have a large selection of dress boots located upstairs. While you’re up there check out the huge selection of shoes along with mens clothes, clearance deals, scrubs, and stunning prom dresses!
