Where the World Gathers to Celebrate Every Day

National Secondhand Wardrobe Day - August 25


National Secondhand Wardrobe Day encourages deals and savings each year across the United States on August 25. Find steals in secondhand and consignment stores all day long on gently worn clothing for all ages. 

Did you know, secondhand shopping offers numerous benefits. Beginning with the savings, for a fraction of the price of retail, thrifty shoppers fill their wardrobe while pocketing the savings.  Additionally, they conveniently shop for the whole family in one or two stores.  Many secondhand stops cater to particular age groups making it easier to find the styles shoppers seek. Instead of ending up in a landfill, the lightly used clothing gets another go around. And, this National Day benefits the Earth as well!

Freeing up some of your closet space and giving some of your rarely worn clothes will benefit you with extra space.  Donating your clothing will be helping someone else who is a secondhand store shopper.  Your donation will be a blessing to them as well as to the charity that runs the store.

Why allow the stigma of wearing used clothing beat the above scenario of the recycling, reusing, re-purposing cycle we are trying to teach the next generation. Plus, many local secondhand stores are set up as a nonproft raising additional funds for local needs in the community.
