Simply gather up your gear and attire, make sure it is clean, then bring it in to MSE. They will take it from there. MSE will create your account, inspect / log your items, and ask you for pricing recommendations. Your items will then be placed in inventory, and moved to the sales floor for someone to purchase and enjoy.
