Drop off AVAILABILITY:
Polkadots staff closed the store temporarily on March 16th, and it will remain closed until we can viably re-open. We will announce here once we have guidance from the state of NY as to when we might be able to re-open per Covid-19 restrictions being lifted.
We know that everyone is probably cleaning out their closets while being home so much during these crazy times....we can't wait to help you make some extra cash on the goodies you are no longer using!! Please read through our guidelines below and thoroughly clean/prepare your items, so that as soon as we can start allowing drop-offs, you are ready to come on in!
Stay tuned! :-)
Thank you all for your continued support!
