Boy, do I love me some resales! I hardly buy my girls new fall clothes. I just wait until September rolls around and stock up at my local resales. And if you volunteer at them? They let you shop early! Before anyone else! So this year I am even volunteering at one.
I have compiled a short list of local (Chicago western suburbs) resales below. I encourage you to check out your local paper, school's PTA organization, and/or this website to see if there are any resales heading your way. It is a great way to help get great clothes at a pretty decent price and help a worthwhile organization (i.e. schools/churches) all at the same time!
Many are just starting to collect clothes to sell. So check out these links!
