OTB accepts adult size clothing, shoes, and fashion accessories, new or in very good condition including women’s apparel, outerwear, shoes, purses, jewelry, hats & gloves. Clothing must be in style and seasonally appropriate.  Priority is given to “Designer Brands”. Name Brands from discount stores such as Kohl’s, Sears, and JC Penney will only be accepted in “like new” condition.  Please refer to Preferred Brands List.

  • ITEMS MUST BE NO OLDER THAN TWO YEARS AND IN CURRENT STYLE! THOROUGHLY INSPECT your items. The only exceptions to this rule are high-end designers. We take items by top designers that are more than two years old if they are in good condition. We cannot guarantee that we will accept all items — we make choices based on our knowledge of shopper preferences and our current inventory. Please do not be offended if not all items are accepted. Additionally, because our staff rotates there will be an element of personal judgment regarding acceptable items. 
  • The receiver’s decision is final. Make sure there are no missing buttons, broken zippers, tears, unsewn hems or seams, and of course, no spots or stains whatsoever.  Your items will be inspected while you wait then a final inspection will take place before pricing the items. If there is something on an item that is not seen in the initial intake, such as a missing hidden button, a loose hem or seam coming out, etc., it will be donated. Therefore, it is imperative that you do your inspection before you bring them in. Your items will be priced and out on the sales floor the same day.
  • Shoes and Purses are only accepted in “like new” condition. No scuffs, no “toe prints” on sandals. Lining of purses should be very clean, no ink marks and no lipstick stains. PLEASE, DUST OFF SHOES AND PURSES if they have been stored in your closet.
