New & Used Athletics Gear.
Our nonprofit collects donations of used/excess sports gear from college & pro teams throughout the US. We are looking to replace the current thrift store partner that we offload items by the pound to because they are undergoing some leadership changes that are delaying their pickup of our items. Our most recent partner was able to get an average return of about 3x what they paid us for the items.
Essentially, we sell them all of the items we do not list online, or take on our annual mission trips. Sometimes this includes a brand new shirt that is not a name brand, or is name brand but has a small snag or stain that's not visible, but is not worth the risk of having to deal with a return for us to sell online. Or brand new dress shirts and other men's clothing that has a good market, but doesn't match our stores focus on sports gear. It also includes many items that aren't worth anything more than textile recycling. We will never include items that involve a cost to dispose.
We would like this to be a long term partnership as we understand there may be some donations that NET much more than others. We are also anticipate soon pulling all of our online inventory over 2+ years old, and including those items.
We have sales info from our previous partner we can provide.
It definitely fluctuates, but we currently have approx 2,500 pounds ready to be picked up, and estimate we have an additional 1,000 pounds every 1-2 months.
