trying to recycle old clothes into rags/looking for quality secondhand clothing store for kids
by Dana Williams on November 20th, 2010

Does anyone know if the items placed in the various clothes and shoes donation boxes around town - ex. Cherrywood Coffee House - get used by people or turned into rags? Long ago my husband worked at a recycling center which turned bales of old clothes into rags.

I keep piles of clothes we have outgrown and I have some good ones that I think would definitely be of use to someone but I also wonder about how I can recycle the ones nobody wants such as an old sheet with a hole in it or torn pairs of jeans.

Any ideas? I hate to throw these unusable fabrics into the trash.

An another note, anyone know a high quality secondhand clothing store for kids in Austin? I used to have a good one years ago near Far West Blvd. but that was 10 years ago and now I can't remember where it is or the name. I can't find anything on the Internet.

Consider donating them to a nearby day care. They always need extra clothes for potty training, etc.

For kid's resale, I like the Pumpkin Patch off Anderson Road. You can both sell and buy a wide variety of kid's items there. When you sell, you choose between cash or a slightly higher dollar amount of in store credit. http://www.pumpkinpatchresale.com/

I love Rockabye Baby. It's off 183 & Braker.
It's always very clean and the owner is very picky about what she buys (so the selection is good - you don't have to dig and dig to find newer looking styles).
I highly recommend checking it out!
