Dress Best for Less now accepting donations — but by appointment only

Julie Reichle

Bev Bucci and Sharon Sanford, longtime DBFL workers, are at it again sorting donations.

During months of SIP and with plenty of time to organize closets, basements, and garages, Piedmonters have been awaiting the opportunity to drop off hand-me-down clothing and household items at what was once the most convenient spot in town: Dress Best for Less’s Marking Room on Magnolia Ave.

The wait is finally over, but with a catch: donors must make an appointment with DBFL in order to drop off items.

“We will be accepting donations starting this Tuesday, but by appointment only.  We are no longer able to sell out of the carriage house, so we are asking donors to only bring items that we can sell at our Piedmont Avenue store.  The carriage house will now be used for donations [by appointment] and sorting only.”

Linda Smith-Munyon, DBFL President
