Seconds To Go
For over 40 years, the school’s resale shop on Fillmore — between Clay and Sacramento — has successfully supported the tuition and financial assistance program at Convent & Stuart Hall. Seconds To Go is an easy walk from both campuses.
Founded in 1974 by parent volunteers, the store relies on donations of quality clothing for women, men and children, accessories, jewelry, household items, kitchenware, vintage items and books. Donations to Seconds To Go are tax deductible, and proceeds from the store directly support tuition assistance for families at Convent & Stuart Hall.
Ways You Can Help
Donating to Seconds To Go creates a positive impact on the community. The store gladly accepts donations during store business hours. For easy drop-offs, head to the white zone located directly in front of the store. The donation guide below helps you determine what items the store will accept. If you have additional questions about your donation, the store manager will be happy to help.
We are grateful for the donations we receive, however, there are some items we cannot except due to government regulations and other restrictions. They include:
Electronics of any kind, including anything with a plug: appliances, lamps, old cell phones, TVs, hair dryers, etc.
Sports equipment. This includes shoes as well as skis, ski boots, lacrosse sticks, etc.
Baby items like car seats, strollers, playpens, high chairs, baby carriers.
Undergarments, including socks and underwear.
Any clothing that is stained, torn, mildewed, smoke-filled or otherwise in a state of disrepair.
Bedding, pillows and curtains.
Fake goods. Examples include purses and any clothing attempting to falsely represent a real brand.
Ivory, fur and weapons.
Seconds To Go is a fun way to become more involved with Convent & Stuart Hall. The store welcomes current and former parent and alumni volunteers to assist with general store duties, and getting involved is easy. Please email store manager Amy Kronk if you are interested in volunteering.
Everyone has their own sense of what’s donatable. Please only donate items in reasonable resale condition. You are responsible for the valuation of your donation — we will not assign value to your merchandise, nor will we keep a record of it. Items not sold are offered to charities and you can still receive the tax deduction.
