- Popsicles reserves the right to pull any item at any time, if it is
found not meeting our specifications. Our Trained Volunteers are consignors
like you. Popsicles supervises checking in of items and spends extra time
pulling unacceptable items off the sales floor. If you happen to see
something on the sales floor that should not have been accepted, please
bring it to our attention. We train our volunteers to follow rules and
guidelines, but we are human, too. Lots of things may affect seeing
something that should not have been accepted such as poor lighting,
distractions, and being shorthanded.
