HOW DOES IT WORK?
Have a garage full of gear or a closet stocked with jackets? We know you paid good money for those items, rather than giving them away or letting them sit around, bring them to DOE. We take the hassle out of selling your outdoor gear and apparel.
No need to make an appointment, you can consign everyday we are open from 10am-5pm. We’ll set up an account for you and review the consignment policy together. Next, we’ll take a look at your merchandise and determine what we believe will sell and at what prices. You can visit our consignor login page from our website at any time to check on your account and see what balance is owed to you. Stop on by to get your check and get PAID! It’s just that simple.
We accept outdoor gear and apparel that is functioning and in good to great condition. Please keep in mind, the better shape an item is when you bring it in, the more we are able to sell it for and the more you make! Just a few minutes of cleaning off a snowboard or wiping down a kayak can make a difference to a customer. Also, we are not a tuning shop. Items are sold “as is” and will only sell if they are ready to use.
Because we are working with a consignment model, it is in our best interest and yours to have a fair selling price. Factors of establishing a selling price are: original retail price, condition of the item, seasonal demand, online prices and current stock on hand. We are willing to work with you to determine a fair price for all involved.
We strive to make the process as streamline and simple as possible. Keep it local and keep it simple. We will provide the ability for you to drop your stuff and collect a check later. You get cash (or store credit) for your gear without the hassle of uploading photos, sifting through emails and DM's, meeting up with a random person or any other time consuming logistics. Our shop provides a location for many types of customers to see your item, in person. We’ll accept items big or small and will price them fairly for both you and the customer. And finally, because supporting local business supports the community we live in.
In addition, we take the relationships with our consignors very seriously and work hard to exceed their expectations of service and trustworthiness. We are proud to be an accredited member of the Better Business Bureau and strive to maintain and A+ rating.
WHAT ARE WE ACCEPTING NOW?
We cannot guarantee that we will accept your gear until we have thoroughly looked it over. We are amazed by all the phenomenal used gear we've seen this season and are continuing to accept summer gear and apparel through the middle of August.
CONSIGNOR HIGHLIGHT: CARA KROPP
My name is Cara Kropp and I have been adventuring in and around the San Juans and the 4 Corners Region for a while. In the most recent years, I have found myself packrafting, bikerafting, skiing and mountain biking. I also guide and coach for 4 Corners Guides, Durango DEVO, and Trek Dirt Series. When Jen and Chase opened up the Durango Outdoor Gear Exchange I was super pumped there was finally a place in town that was convenient to drop off your old gear in exchange for something new to you. I started to feel really good about getting rid of the things I was no longer wearing or using. I told myself if I got something new I would have to bring something in to consign the next time. When I started to build credit, I couldn’t believe how easy it was. The selection of gear is high quality with a lot of new items. Jen, Chase and Bryce are incredibly kind and truly interested in connecting with you. They always help me find exactly what I am looking for and help me brainstorm gear ideas for my next trip.
CONSIGNOR HIGHLIGHT: THE RIDERS
When we moved from Carbondale, CO 12 years ago, I couldn’t believe that a town this size, with so many outdoor opportunities, did not have an outdoor consignment shop. Little did we know that a guy who grew up just up the road from Carbondale would soon open a shop that would fill that gap in Durango. As our kids grew into and out of ski clothes, sandals, jackets (and everything else really), it has been perfect to have Chase and Jen’s shop to move them up to the next size. I can’t, admittedly, say it has just been good for the kids. My wife Jen and I have benefited from the great selection of clothes and gear at the shop and it has been an amazing place to practice “out with the old, in with the new”…well, new to us anyway. Chase, Jen, and the entire staff are so easy to work with, they’ve really created a great atmosphere where everyone feels welcomed.
