Many people ask why we do not accept electronics/appliances.  The reason is simple: we cannot guarantee that a product works, and cannot offer refunds.  Therefore, the only things with electric cords/batteries that are accepted are children’s toys and baby gear. This is at the discretion of The Treasure Chest Sale.
