Midcoast Sports Exchange LLC.
How it works:
Midcoast Sports Exchange is a consignment store that specializes in finding new homes for gently used outdoor gear and attire. Simply gather up your gear and attire, make sure it is clean, then bring it in to MSE. We will take it from there. MSE will create your account, inspect / log your items, and ask you for pricing recommendations. Your items will then be placed in inventory, and moved to the sales floor for someone to purchase and enjoy.
Preparing your gear:
Ask yourself, "Would I loan this item to a friend?" If “yes”, keep going.
All items must be clean with no pet hair, stains or rips.
All clothing / sleeping bags must be washed within 2-3 weeks of bringing to MSE.
Please be sure to run your gear through a wash cycle, even if you think it's clean.
All Items must be in very good or better, gently used condition and should be ready to use with all parts and pieces included and no repairs needed.
Bring in that gear:
More than 10 items: Please just call the shop to let us know you are coming.
When possible, place items in a plastic tote with any special instructions.
Larger or more technical gear: Please call ahead if you can just to make sure we will have time to chat. Please plan on setting the item up and providing a demo.
