We pay from 15- 50% of the amount at which we will sell an item, which is 25-50% of the retail market value–20% more if you agree to spend the proceeds at Fancy Pants. We subscribe to the NextGen Fair Pricing Standards to arrive at the price.
Buying Hours are Monday – Saturday 11a -3:00p
Appointments and Drop-Offs
You may choose any buying arrangements: Selling by appointment or dropping off your items for purchase at a later time.
– Appointments: This is for the more organized among us who prefer to setup a time to sell in advance. Appointments may be set up by phone (617 731-9400).
Appointments may be scheduled during buying hours–11:30a -4:00p (on the half hour) Appointments are 30 minutes long.
At the time of your appointment, we will go through your things, let you know what we would like to buy, render payment, and return or donate(clothing only) items we’re unable to take. Having an appointment minimizes the chances of having to wait. Note: It takes up to half an hour to process two bags and/or bin of clothing, footwear and toys. Equipment generally takes about 5 minutes to test and evaluate. If you have more than this, we strongly suggest that you book more than one appointment (back-to-back).
-Drop-Offs: This option is open to customers having once sold to Fancy Pants and to customers walking in when buyer(s) are occupied and unable to process their things in a reasonable time (subject to space availability).
A Drop-off form is completed: listing the items being left for evaluation and purchase, identifying how the customer would like to be notified once completed, how any payment is to be made, and the disposition (e.g. pickup, donation) .
Please note, we are not able to discuss item by item what we are keeping/purchasing if you drop off. If you want to know more details about the exchange and decision-making process please make an appointment. Drop offs cannot include that level of detail. Leave a note on drop off form, if you would like see what we choose , otherwise we will processed your items.
If we can’t reach you when we contact you (we will try at least Two times) then we will processed items what we hold returns of your items for up to one week. If we don’t hear from you within that week we will donate the items.
NOTE: Due to space limitations, we may be unable to accept equipment or big toys of dropped off .
