Please don’t put our inspectors in an uncomfortable position by having to reject all of your items. ATTENTION SMOKERS: You are not likely to smell the smoke in your items. We recommend having a non-smoker smell your items before you bring them in so that you are not embarrassed by having your items rejected.
