– Bring along your gently used items that are still in good condition (clothing, shoes, purses, jackets, etc.)
– You can price the items as you please, as little or as much as you feel is right.
– All sales will be cash only
– You will be responsible for your table and all of your sales, the Legion takes no responsibility
