We’ve learned that some items just aren’t right for the MV Big Flea. As a result, we cannot accept the following items for donation:

  • Books
  • Clothing/linens
  • Chandeliers/ceiling fans
  • Grills
  • Upholstered furniture (we do accept upholstered dining chairs that could easily be recovered)
  • Stuffed animals
  • Building supplies
  • Cribs and bed frames (nice ones OK)
  • Monitors and TVs (flatscreen OK)

To make a donation, schedule a pickup, or for more information, please contact All donations are tax-deductible — download a tax receipt here.

If you are making a furniture donation, if possible, please send a photo, measurements and description of the condition of the item. We post large items on Facebook for quicker sale and this will help us expedite a pick up.
