Secondhand Dealer License

The City licenses secondhand dealers.

A person or business must have a Secondhand Dealer General License to buy or sell secondhand items. This does not include the purchase or sale of used cars or firearms, which require separate Licenses.

A license is not required to buy or sell used clothing or boats. A license is also not required to hold a garage sale.

Nonprofit organizations do not need a license to buy or sell used goods, but they must have proof of being registered as a nonprofit.
