What to do with used clothing in good condition?

I'm wondering if anybody knows of second hand stores that buy gently used items. I have found one for kids that specializes in kids clothing of mid to high end brands. It's called Bonbon and it's in Zollikon (Zurich area). I would like to find one for adult clothing and shoes, mostly female. Any recommendation?
Thank you.

Re: What to do with used clothing in good condition?

Every 3 months or so there is a collecting of old clothes by a charity group. They usually leave a plastic bag in your mail-box, and the bag will be collected on the correct day.

Some train stations (like Rüti ZH) also have special bins for used clothes which are then sorted and delievered to different charities.


P.S.: I'm so sorry, I completly misread the text. I must have been reading something else at the same time... The information I posted is how to get rid of them, not where to find them...

There are quite a few in the Seefeld area. DejaVu at Kreuzplatz is good. I've seen people bringing their clothes in there, and they have a good range, including some designer stuff.

Zollikerstrasse 4, Zürich 8008, Zürich
T: 01 382 55 33

Otherwise, if you wander down Seefeldstrasse you'll see some more. Can't think of any more names, though. Sorry!

There is a shop near the Stadelhofen train station.

Carol's Second Hand Mode

Kreuzbühlstrasse 1

8008 Zürich

From my experience some years back they did accept second hand clothes on a consignment basis.

There is also this shop.

They accept used articles on consignment. Here is an explanation of the conditions.

You could also advertise here though I understand some are reluctant to advertise used clothing for privacy reasons (you have to disclose the size of what you are selling).
