Now is the time to bring in gently used toys for Christmas! Make some extra money and bring in your old toys to replace them for the new hall! All toys must have all pieces, be clean, have fresh batteries and multiple parts must be bagged.

Note: If consignors are unable to see their items on their account it might be because their items have been taken to Ankeny.  If they can’t find them on their inventory, call or email us at and we will send them access information for Ankeny.

If account on-line says TRANS after an item, that means that it was transferred to our Ankeny store and visa versa.  Both stores can transfer money and can pick up money or use store credit no matter where your items end up!

Useful Information! 

Clutter Banner
Christmas comes and goes and though you can toss the paper, tree, and boxes, it seems we are all left with a few piles of items not previously planned for in our potentially limited storage situations! With winter upon us it’s best to clear the clutter and maximize your time, money, and end up with a beautifully organized space. Read one of our archived blogs to find out more and get a head start on your Christmas cleaning!



 Until we Meet Again

Thank you for taking the time to read our news. We are committing to make this the best year yet at Duck Worth Wearing, and we can’t wait to keep sharing our one of a kind products with our one of kind shoppers.  Follow us on Facebook Ames and Ankeny to keep tabs on the newest items entering the Ames and Ankeny stores!

Thank you for your business, and as always for shopping local!
