How to Sell

Want to sell to us? Here's a handy guide!

In an attempt to keep the Buying Counter open year-round, modifications have been made to our buying guidelines. Priority will be given to UNIQUE VINTAGE ITEMS. Most modern pieces and basics will not be selected by our buyers. Items are curated for a one-of-a-kind shopping experience and buyers are very selective and under strict buying guidelines. Please do not take offense if we pass on your items! There are many factors that go into selection; including current inventory levels, trends, brands, condition, season, size, construction quality, etc.

If you have more than 50 items, high-end vintage, or designer items, you must make an appointment with Bandit MKE owners by calling 414-459-1254 or emailing If you are unsatisfied with your buying experience in-store, please contact owners Liz & Michelle.

  • You must be 18 years old to sell to Bandit MKE. If you are under 18, please bring a parent, guardian or friend. You must present a photo ID to check-in your items, and we are required to capture and store an image of your ID.
  • An associate will process your buy and may or may not select items. A non-negotiable cash offer will be presented to you. You are welcome to accept or decline the offer.
