WHEN YOU COME INTO our store, you can expect to find high quality used gear and clothing at 30 - 60 % off MSRP (Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price).  Occasionally, you may also find further discounted items in the bargain section of the shop.  These items have some flaws or more than normal wear and tear, but we believe they still have some life left in them.  

We do not want Fashion brand clothing including Adidas, Nike, Under Armor, GAP, Banana Republic, Old Navy, etc.


We will accept items anytime during our regular business hours (no appointment needed!), but to keep consignment running smoothly, please try to arrive at least an hour before we close.

While you take your time to read and sign our consignment policy, our staff will look over your items and let you know if there is anything we cannot take. If you prefer to drop your items off, we are happy to call or email you once your items have been sorted.


  • In order to sell gear with us, you will sign a contract agreeing to our consignment policies.
  • You must bring in your driver’s license or any other form of government issued identification.
  • Please give us a call (434.282.3773) if you have questions about the gear you would like to sell.

You are always welcome to pick it up your item(s) anytime, for any reason, if they have not already sold.


Items we sell are typically priced at 30-60% off the manufacturer's suggested retail price (MSRP). We determine current MSRP by comparing your products with the prices listed for the same items sold from reputable outdoor websites like,,, etc.  When you bring in gear that is brand new with tags on it, we begin listing these items at 30% off MSRP. If your item is lightly used but in excellent condition, and it is a desirable brand such as Patagonia, REI, Icebreaker, The North Face, etc., it will be marked at 40% off MSRP.  Prices will drop further based on your item’s condition, seasonality, and our current inventory.

Items that don’t sell at the initial price are discounted monthly and may be lowered by 10% every month until the item reaches 50% off of the listed price.  High Tor Gear Exchange reserves the right to reduce prices further for sales or promotions.


The consignment period is 6 months.

All items for sale are the consignor's until they sell or the 6 months has expired. We may ask consignors to pick up unsold items at anytime. Consignors may pick up an item that is being sold on the sales floor at anytime within the first 6 months.  Items that were initially priced under $50 which have been on the sales floor past this consignment period and have not sold become property of High Tor Gear Exchange.  We will call or email consignors whose products were initially listed over $50 and ask them to come pick up your items if they have not sold.  These items that have not been retrieved after three (3) weeks from us reaching out to you will be donated to a local non-profit.


30-day return policy

Items can be returned within 30 days with a receipt, if they are in the same condition as when you purchased them.  Please do not take items on an epic outdoor adventure and try to return them.  That would really hurt our business. You can choose to be refunded in cash or store credit.
