The Edit team is often asked by clients what to do with various clothing, shoes and accessory items that we “edit out” during a wardrobe edit. So in the spirit of cleaning out closets {and offices, garages, etc.}, we’ve been doing a little research, and here are some worthy places to donate your un-wanted goods to…

Vintage Clothing {or clothes that no longer fit!} :: Web Thift Store enables you to sell old clothes {as well as electronics and giftcards} and to designate a charity to support through your sales.

If you know of another national charity that recycles gently-used wardrobe items for those in need, we would love to hear. Please comment and share, so we can help spread the word!

Stylishly yours,
