Selling Clothing

I have dozens of barely worn expensive professional suits, outfits, cocktail dresses, etc. The problem is, every consignment shop states they will not consider anything older than two years. This clothing is so classic, so tailored, similar clothing is shown often in New York Times ads. Does anyone have any bright ideas on how not to just dump clothing?


Thank you.

Give them to the ladies abuse shelter. They can start a new job in new clothes. Most leave home with nothing. (05/28/2006)

Have a garage sale or go to the flea market and rent a space. (05/29/2006)

eBay, baby!

Look at the site and use the "search" feature to get an idea of what your items might bring.

Buyers pay for shipping! (05/29/2006)

In St. Louis we have a "Dress for Success" program for women who need a little help getting off welfare and getting job. You can donate to them and write it off! (05/30/2006)

Selling Clothing It collects business clothes and then offers them to women entering the business world that need business clothes, but money is tight.


I haven't personally dealt with them, but know people who have made donations.

You could sell them on eBay. I do like the donation to the women's shelter best, though. You have been blessed enough to be able to afford lovely well made clothes. Now that they no longer serve you, you can do so much good giving a woman who left with nothing more than the clothes on her back, kids on her hips and bruises on her face a presentable, professional outfit that may help her on her way to recovery. That suit you may have worn to a brunch or a social gathering will be special to her because it was THE outfit that got her her first job on the long road to recovery.

Another idea, it may help the post high school graduate get a better job than a burger joint, or maybe a nice dress to wear to church. When you give, those who desperately need it will appreciate it so much more than you will probably ever know. (05/31/2006)

The previous posters said almost everything I was going to say. The only thing I can think of to add is posting the items for sale, with pictures if possible, at a community college, technical school, or university. New graduates sometimes have just had jobs that only required uniforms or very casual dress, and until they get that new job they went to college for, they don't have the money to buy a really nice interview dress/suit, or dressy clothes to wear to "networking" parties.
