Consign

Do you have some large ticket items that you want to sell? Bring them to us to sell for you. We take a percentage to support Kids 4 Clean Water. The rest goes to you.

It’s easier than Craig’s List and you don’t have to try to arrange those awkward rendevous with prospective buyers.

Donate

We accept outdoor gear of all shapes and sizes.
From kayaks and backpacks to climbing shoes and chalk bags, life jackets and paddles to snorkels and swim fins, if it’s something you’ve considered giving away or throwing out, chances are good that someone else would love to give it a second life.

Shop

Got a big camping trip coming up and you don’t have any gear? Don’t spend hundreds for one weekend. Come here first and see what we have!

Thinking about trying out a new sport and don’t want to invest a lot in it until you know you like it?
This is the place for you!

Gear Swap – April 22nd 2017

Join us on Earth Day 2017 for Chattanooga’s 10th Annual Gear Swap & Outdoor Expo.  This is your chance to sell your gently used gear or spread your organization’s love of the great outdoors, rent a 10’X10′ space for $20. Spaces will be reserved on a first-come, first-served basis. Fees for exhibit booths must be pre-paid by Thursday, April 20, 2017

Vendors will provide their own tables, chairs, and exhibit tents, unless previously arranged with The Gear Closet. No electrical outlets will be available. Each vendor will be responsible for the setting up and breaking down of their area, and it would be much appreciated if there is no trash left behind afterwards!  Setup will begin at 8:30AM and no booth should be taken down until 2PM once the event is over. Vendors and Exhibitors are responsible for their own merchandise. The Gear Closet is not responsible for lost or stolen items.

Parking will be available next door at the Volunteer Behavioral Health Care System lot on the Chilhowie Street side of the building. No vehicles in the exhibit area during the Expo, please. The event will happen rain or shine, however, in the unfortunate case that the weather is dangerous then it will be cancelled.

For more info, please email jenn@caribbean-sea.org or call the Gear Closet 423-413-3298.
