How to Shop

Online shopping window:

Monday August 24, 6:00 am through Sunday August 30, 5:00 pm. A link to our online platform, GiveSmart, will be live on this website August 24.

Navigating GiveSmart:

  • On your first visit to the GiveSmart platform, you’ll need to register.
  • After registration, you’ll find items by department much in the way that our physical event is organized.
  • Two ways to shop:
    • Instant Buy: Bargain prices on items available for immediate purchase.
    • Silent Auction: Using a bidding process, items go to the highest bidder.  ONLINE Silent Auction bidding begins at 6:00am on August 24 and ends at 5:00pm on August 30, 2020
  • For auction items, each subsequent bid must follow the minimum dollar increment as listed with the item. Please note the date/time that each specific item auction closes. No bids are accepted after close.
  • During the bidding process, you will be notified if you have been out-bid by another shopper, and/or when you have won the item.
  • All items are sold “as is.”
  • All payments are made at time of purchase through the online platform, which accepts VISA, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express.

Congratulations, it’s yours!

  • When you purchase via Instant Buy or when you win an auction item, you will automatically receive an email receipt.
  • You will receive contact info for the person who donated the item, and you can arrive at a mutually agreeable pickup time and location. (Shipping is not available.)
  • Enjoy your new treasure and the great feeling of supporting our community!
