Selling Your Gear:
We ask that you take time to pre-register for a Seller ID before dropping off your gear. This will save you time and your sanity! By pre-registering, your information will already be entered in our system, so at drop off you will bring your gear and not have to fill out much more. Together we will tag your items and you will be all set.
Tips, Tricks and Frequently Asked Questions:
How does this work?
- You will drop off your equipment to sell at one of the drop off locations and times. Please pre-register for a Seller ID before you drop off your gear. You will receive a ticket for each item dropped off. HOLD ON TO THESE TAGS – they will act as your receipt at pick up if some items to do not sell.
- If not all items sell, customers can pick them up after the Swap on Saturday, November 4 between 1:30pm and 3pm, or choose to donate the items to CBSF.
- CBSF will mail the seller a check for 75% of the cost of the gear sold, within two weeks of the Swap. No customers will be reimbursed for sold items the day of the sale.

- Yes, but please make sure that whomever returns to pick up the equipment on Saturday has the appropriate tags for your items.
Is there any new equipment, or is it all used?

We will only accept quality equipment that is in good condition. We will deny any items that are too old, or in poor shape.

Please refrain from bringing items in boxes.
