For just $40 for two suitcases, you can secure your own selling spot to peddle pre-loved goods you no longer need. Whether you’re an avid thrifter looking to declutter, a parent hoping to earn extra shopping money, or a collector seeking new owners for beloved items, this is your chance to pass along quality second-hand finds.

This is your chance to rehome quality second-hand items no longer sparking joy. Grab any good-conditioned goods you want to pass along – from knick-knacks and clothing to books, jewellery, plants, shoes, music, artwork, and everything in between.

Now, an important note for sellers: this suitcase sale keeps things tidy and simple. Sales must come right from your luggage – no additional display equipment allowed. But not to worry, that just means getting creative with how you pack and present your goodies!

Of course, the real magic happens on the buyer’s end. Come ready to uncover rare treasures spanning decades and styles. Comb through suitcases stuffed with mystery offerings and see what speaks to you. It’s the perfect place to find budget-friendly holiday gifts with character and heart. The intimate, curated setup means quality over quantity, so you can feel good about your purchases.
