The Gear Closet sale is your chance to turn your old gear into new gear or get great deals on used gear you want. 


1) Bring your used casual and technical outdoor apparel, footwear and equipment that you want to sell down to Salem Summit starting October 24th.   We are accepting items for consignment on the following dates/times:

2) You set a sale price for your items (we are happy to advise and suggest a price range) and complete the inventory check-in sheet. This sheet can be filled out in advance (available here) or it can be completed in the shop.

3) Items that have not sold after the first day of the sale will be marked down 10% for the second day of the sale.

4) After your gear sells you get 100% of the value in store credit at Salem Summit. If any of your gear has not been sold we ask that you pick it up no later than Monday November 21st, after that date it will be donated.

We will accept fairly modern (typically less than 10 years old) casual and technical outdoor apparel, footwear and equipment related to the following activities: climbing, hiking, backpacking, paddling, camping, traveling, cross country skiing, snowshoeing, etc…

We WILL NOT accept bicycles or parts, downhill ski bindings, water bladders, most electronic devices, climbing harnesses or other life safety equipment. Vintage climbing gear will be considered on a case by case basis.


All tents must be set up on site to prove they are in working order. We welcome you to set your tent up for us at the shop so we can inspect it. As an alternative, we will offer a $5 service to mark your tent with the Salem Summit stamp of approval, which includes setting up, inspecting and repacking your tent and creating a display card with pictures and a detailed description to help your tent find a new home!


If you don’t have anything you want to sell but you’re looking for good deals, you’re in luck! Come shop through all of the used gear other people have consigned and check out our new spring inventory.  The sale runs Saturday April 16th from 10am to 5pm, and Sunday April 17th from Noon to 4pm.  On Sunday take an additional 10% off all Gear Closet pricing.

Terms of Sale:

All items brought in for consignment must be clean, fully functioning and ready for sale. Items that have heavy tears, stains, odors, or other obvious defects may be refused from sale. Salem Summit is not responsible for lost, damaged or stolen items. All sales are final on used items purchased at the Gear Closet sale, no returns or exchanges.
