FAQ

What happens to items brought in to sell but Scout passes on and you also don't want them anymore?

Your donation of unwanted clothing & shoes will help the local community in several ways. Items first go to the weekly $2 Buck Bonanza on Saturdays, the weekly $1 Sale Sunday or the 3-5-7 Rack. 

25% of profits from items sold will be given to a different carefully chosen charity each month.

Items unable to be sold are donated to a local nonprofit and will go on to further help Omaha area families.

Do Scout Gift Cards & Scout Rewards work at both stores?

Yep! They sure do!

Do I need an appointment to bring items in to sell to Scout?

No, come in anytime that's convenient for you between 11am-6:30pm! We're open 7 days a week and we're ALWAYS buying. We do buy items based on the season-check the MOST WANTED ITEMS page to see what we're most likely to purchase. Please DO NOT bring items in on hangers.

 So, like, what do you guys buy?

We are interested in buying high quality, on trend items-vintage or not vintage. Hop on over to our MOST WANTED ITEMS page for a crash course. Trust us, selling at Scout is fast & super easy.

How is Scout different from consignment?

At Scout, we want to make your life as easy as possible. So we buy items from customers outright and you'll get paid in cash or store credit before you leave the stop!

The items I brought in to sell are awesome. Why didn't you buy any of them??

The most common reason we don't buy items for the shop are because of condition issues. We only buy items that are in excellent condition. There are many other reasons we don't buy items even if they are new-with-tags including: items haven't done well in the shop in the past, too many in stock, not currently fashionable, out of season.

What's the deal with the Sunday $ Buck Bonanza? Everything in the shop is $2???

We're nice, but we're not crazy.

Every Sunday we have a $2 Sale, it's usually a TON of items and it's completely different items every week-so no guarantees on what you'll find. We often add items to the sale throughout the day. If you love the thrill of the hunt, then the $2 Sale will be your kind of party.

After the $S Sale anything left over gets donated to a local not-for-profit. Right now Scout donates to Habitat for Humanity Omaha and the donated items go to local families working with the organization.

Do I need to bring my items in on hangers?

No, it's actually much easier to look through items when they are simply folded or laying flat on top of one another. 

Do you guys buy jewelry?

Yes! Jewelry, shoes, bags & other accessories for ladies & gents are great items to sell.

How long will it take for you to look through my items?

We've gotten pretty good at this so it usually only takes between 10-15 minutes! Then you'll get cash or store credit for any items we can take for the shop.

How did you come up with your name?

We're named after the curious & personality filled little girl in Harper Lee's book, To Kill a Mockingbird. Scout is also a very appropriate word for the hunting and gathering used to find amazing items to add to your wardrobe. The 'Dry Goods & Trade' part of our name comes from the time when clothes used to be more commonly known as dry goods & 'trade' is because we buy-sell-trade!

Can I use my Scout gift card to buy something online?

No. We are excited about having that compatibility, but at the moment gift cards issued in store can only be used in store and gift cards purchased online can only be used online. 

I love you Scout. Will you marry me?

Sorry, we're strickly in the clothes business and not really the marrying type.
