Last week Dress Best for Less volunteers cleared out the Marking Room, the space in the old Carriage House on Magnolia Avenue where residents donated clothing and household items to resell in the DBFL store on Piedmont Avenue. The organization is moving its donation center to the First Congregational Church on Harrison Street in Oakland (near Whole Foods) to make way for pool construction.
The new drop-off location is now open — schedule an appointment HERE.
DBFL says it is looking for the following fall/winter items, in new or close-to-new condition. (Please check that items don’t have any rips or chips, pulls or stains, marks or missing buttons/snaps, etc):
- Women’s Tops (these are our top sellers at the store!)
- Cashmere or Wool Sweaters (no pilling or stains, please)
- Vintage Items (our younger shoppers love quality vintage clothing)
