Large items such as furniture and televisions will all be individually priced, and marked with a price tag. To purchase an item, hail a roving cashier and pay for the item. You will receive a receipt for the item which you can use to access the pickup area and claim your item.
No furniture or other large items will be permitted in the main checkout line. However, smaller items may be paid for in the large item checkout line.
Once large items have been purchased, they will remain in the same spot on the floor until you are ready to pick them up. Volunteers will be available to help move heavy items to your vehicle. Delivery service may be available to move items for a fee. It is your responsibility to secure and pay for delivery of the items you purchase. Items that are not removed from The Warehouse by 3:30 pm will be considered abandoned and will be considered forfeited by the purchaser.

In 2018, we will have the equivalent of about 8 semi-trailers worth of donations.
Everything is priced reasonably. All proceeds go to support the sustainability efforts at the City of Bloomington, Indiana University, Cutters Soccer Club and several other local non-profit organizations. Last year, we raised about $45,000 to support our local organizations.
We will have a limited number of boxes and bags available at the entrance, but these will be given out on a first-come-first-serve basis. We will also have about 50 carts (donated by Walmart) that can be checked out with a valid photo ID.
Sorry, everything is priced reasonably. All proceeds go to support the sustainability efforts at the City of Bloomington, Indiana University, Cutters Soccer Club and several other local non-profit organizations.
We do not allow volunteers or anyone else to purchase items prior to sale day.
Hoosier 2 Hoosier is a volunteer-powered program. Help us by joining a committee to spread the word, voluntter to sort donations or pick up items, or take part in our group volunteer compensation program. Funds raised through the sale go to a number of local organizations. Our volunteer compensation program allows local organizations to apply and receive a portion of proceeds based on the number of volunteer hours their organization provides to sale efforts. We need hundreds of volunteers to cover pre-sale sorting and arranging as well as volunteers for sale-day.
We also ask students and others to remember to donate their items to H2H or another local reuse organization when they move or otherwise need to get rid of reusable items.
