Kids outgrow clothes before they wear them out. You have worn that sweater to three parties, time to get a new one. I’m downsizing and have extra furniture. I read that book about decluttering and now I have bags of unwanted stuff! What do you do with all this extra stuff?
Awesome donations come into DIBS! On Resale daily, we call them Blessings! Gently used clothing, household goods, and furniture. We sort, test, clean and put out the best for others to Reuse!
There are always people looking for something. Items are purchased to furnish that new apartment or fill that blank space on the wall. A piece of jewelry to complete any outfit. A unique item to complete a collection or to start a collection. Resale stores fill many needs.
Once something has been out on the floor for a while and hasn’t sold we have to move it on. DIBS! On Resale has a partnership with Muskegon Rescue Mission. They stop by once a week to pick up what doesn’t sell. They will bail clothing and take shoes to be recycled and pay us a little for that. They also take hard goods to try to sell in their stores.
We collect metal and paper to recycle. Dave and Ken from the First CRC in Grand Haven will stop by every couple weeks to pick up metal and paper for recycling.
They have a huge recycling program at their church and work hard at keeping metals out of our landfill. Gail manages our housewares department. Her church has a kitchen pantry for families in need. She will take kitchen items that don’t sell for use in that mission. Bob will take our plastics to top off his recycle bin at home. All this is done to keep recyclables out of the landfill.
We still generate some disposable waste but I am happy to say we only have our dumpster emptied only once a month. That’s not too bad.
Drop off your donations at the BIG Blue Doors on the south side of DIBS! On Resale. Your donation is helping to generate funds to make our schools better.
At DIBS! On Resale, we receive electrical donations of all sorts. “Does this work?” is a frequently asked question. We see beautiful and unusual lamps of all sizes, candle warmers and fountains. We get electronics from clocks to radios and kitchen gadgets galore. There are tools of all sorts to dry, cut and curl hair. Games, puzzles, and toys with all the bells and whistles. We test them all.
Look for the BLUE DOT 🧿
Our Team Tests Everything
Bob helps to keep all the gadgets and gizmos sorted. Rich cleans & keeps the cords under control. And Bruce liked the massage chair he tested so much he came back a bought it! If something does not work it will be used for parts or put into a bin to be recycled.
Once the item is tested and cleaned it is ready to be put out on the floor. When you decide to make a purchase look for the blue dot 🧿 to see that it was tested. AND we will happily plug it in for you if you want further proof.
Stop in at DIBS! On Resale. Check out the new products we put out every day!
The first time I walked into our new building I couldn’t even see the walls. The building was being used as an office furniture sales and storage building. It was wall to wall, floor to ceiling office furniture! Once that was all removed we could see the potential. The first thing we needed was a new fire suppression system. Next, we brought in shelving to divide the working rooms from the showroom, build two dressing rooms and hooked up the speaker system.
Finally. It’s moving day, or maybe I should say moving weeks. We had many volunteers come in to help pack up the Harvey St store and move everything to the Apple Ave. store. The whole time we kept both stores open for business. I was most impressed with the amount of stuff the little yellow delivery truck holds! And with the enclosed trailer that came to move all the racks of clothing!
I feel truly blessed with so many volunteers who came to support this major undertaking! We have been welcomed into a neighborhood with new customers and familiar faces. Everyone is so excited and grateful for a store like ours to open in their neighborhood. And I am really glad the snow held off while all this was happening!
I am very excited to share with you the NEW DIBS! On Resale.

I will admit it, I am reluctant to let summer go this year, but school has started and it is time to change. Time to put away shorts and bring out sweaters.
We sort twice and put out the nicest items for our customers.
We have a great team at DIBS! On Resale who makes the switch happen. All the clothing that comes into the store is sorted twice. First Volunteers check buttons and zippers and look for stains and rips. Next, each department goes through it again choosing the best clothing to put on hangers. Every week new clothing is put out and for the last few weeks Fall clothing has been coming out of storage. Beautiful sweaters, dresses, shirts and more. Laura, Jennifer, Marie and Sadie along with many others keep the the racks fresh & full.
We carry clothing for everyone!
Men’s shirts are always a great buy and they are like new! Infant clothing is just 99c! We carry maternity and Plus sizes as well as formal wear. Stop in and check out the great selection at DIBS! On Resale.
Memorial Day is coming up, it is the official start for the summer season. School is almost done and there will be parades and family gatherings, camping and fireworks.

On Resale we want to show our thanks to our Active Military and Veterans everyday by offering a 15% discount.
