Save Money, Make Money, AND Give Back to the Community: Shop at Stuff Etc!

If you are an Iowa City native, chances are you already know all of the amazingness that is Stuff Etc. However, just in case you haven’t heard, Stuff. Etc is the BEST!  Stuff is a consignment service operation that is dedicated to providing consignors the best return on their merchandise, while providing buyers with quality, low-cost shopping. Considering both the consignors and buyers as their customers, everything at Stuff Etc is focused on complete customer satisfaction.

Save Money

Stuff offers everything under one roof!! Name brands, home goods, clothing, accessories, toys, sports, media, and electronics…they have it all!! Not only do they offer prices a 1/3 of retail cost, but they also have 5 major sales every year! Be sure to follow them on Facebook to stay up-to-date with their sale schedule and other special offers!

Make Money

In addition to shopping for 1/3 of retail prices, you can also MAKE money by visiting Stuff Etc!  Do a quick walk-through of your house and find some items that you and your family aren’t using these days (we all have them, don’t we?!) and stop in to chat with the Stuff Etc staff about joining their consignment program!

Never consigned before?  They  offer a variety of ways you can bring in your gently used items:

  1. Schedule an appointment with Stuff Etc and bring in 2 totes of merchandise
  2. Drop off 5 items anytime without an appointment Monday – Saturday
  3. Use a Stuff Etc recycle bag Monday – Saturday without an appointment
  4. Drop off furniture any day of the week with no appointment needed
  5. They can come get your items! (fees apply)

Give Back to the Community

Last, but certainly not least, shopping at Stuff Etc is also helping to support your community! Each month, the company selects a charity or charities to support with an in-store fundraiser called the “Charity Umbrella”. Customers can help support the charity by making a donation in the umbrellas hanging over the check out counters.

In other words, not only can you find a place to recycle all of your unwanted, gently-used items from around your house AND shop for some new goodies at some super low prices, you can also give back to those in need in our community. Now that’s what I call a win-win-win!

Stay In-The-Know

In addition to their Facebook page, you can also follow Stuff Etc on Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest to keep up with all of the specials, sales, charity donations, and events they might be hosting at their locations!  And, of course, you can always just visit their website for more information!
