Buying

Thank you for thinking of Time Warp when considering Selling your vintage / antique items.  

We know that selling vintage / antique items that were in your family can be difficult.  Many people feel their items are part of their family at times and they tend to feel that these items are priceless or of great value and they are to you! We say that with the utmost respect.  We find that people tend to put what we in the resale industry call "Sentimental Value" on many of their items. It becomes difficult when this is the case, emotions can blind a person to the true resale value of their items.   
 

Below you will find all the information you will need when considering Time Warp as an avenue when selling your items.  

You must be at least 18 years of age for us to buy from you.
We require you to have valid Identification to buy from you , we will make a copy of it and it will be place on file. (Acceptable ID's are Drivers License, State ID or Passport)   

Please be advised that we DO NOT DO APPRAISALS!    

We buy by appointment ONLY in the store, we do not take walk-in's.  
To make an appointment please call the store at (586) 362-8843 (during business hours)

  • We will ask you the type of items you are wanting to sell and will ask that you send photos to our buyer via email or text (email & text # will be given at that time) this is to eliminate items that you will not have to pack up and bring if it is something we are not interested in.   

Top items we look for: 
*1950's to 1990's 
1. Costume Jewelry / Silver Jewelry 
2. Mid Century Furniture 
3. Boy's Toys / Men's Smalls 
4. Vintage Clothes ( 1990's and older) 
5. Vintage Housewares 
6. Local items (Detroit and surrounding cities) 
7. Ephemera (Paper items) 
8. Oddities 
9. Vintage Souvenir items
 
If you have an appointment and you are in the store with a buyer, Once the Buyer gives you an offer and you politely decline that offer may not be honored at a future date, in this industry items fluctuate all the time, meaning your item may have increased in value or dropped in value. Another appointment will be necessary to research that item again.  

   
Being demanding, pushy, persistent or rude will only result in us NOT setting an appointment at all! Any threatening behavior in the store will result in Police being involved. 
We DO NOT pay eBay or any selling site's prices – those tend to be inflated or at the least Retail Pricing and no profit can be made.  
We have to be able to make a profit off the items we sell in order to remain in business.  

WE DO NOT PURCHASE THE FOLLOWING ITEMS:
 
1. Any item that is 1999 and newer 
2. Beanie Babies / Plush  
3. Trading Cards (Sports, Gaming, I.e.) 1980 and newer 
4. Decorative/Collector Plates  
5. Most Clear Glass (may be interested in Figurines made from clear glass)  
6. China / Dinnerware Sets (Mid Century Patterns may be of interest)  
7. Silver Plate items / Silver Plate Flatware sets  
8. Most Large Furniture (Bedroom sets, Buffet's, I.e.) some Mid Century may be of interest

Heights Brewing

WE’RE TAKING CRAFT BEER AND BBQ TO NEW HEIGHTS

What sets Heights Brewing apart from other Detroit-area breweries? It’s our commitment to offering both traditional and gluten-free beers brewed in our Downtown Farmington taproom. We built a custom brewing system that keeps our gluten-free offerings completely separate from the tank to the tap to your glass. Oh, and we made sure our backyard BBQ-inspired menu includes plenty of gluten-free options, too. Come check out our taproom and kitchen, located in the Syndicate social district of downtown Farmington. If you’re part of the 30 percent of Americans avoiding gluten in their diet, you can be 100 percent comfortable when you hang at the Heights.
