FAQ

InventoryWhat Is The Wardrobe Boutique?

The Wardrobe Boutique is more than just a resale store!  We are a charitable initiative that empowers women to succeed by reselling gently used or new clothing and accessories to benefit Career Wardrobe, a nonprofit organization that assists women in the Philadelphia region transition to work.

Career Wardrobe has helped over 75,000 women in Philadelphia and the surrounding counties transition to work by providing them with free professional clothing, job search support and networking opportunities since 1995.

Are Your Designer Items Authentic?

All items sold by The Wardrobe Boutique have been donated to Career Wardrobe for the purpose of supporting our charitable efforts. Therefore, we do not authenticate any designer merchandise and all inventory is sold in good faith and as is. If you have questions regarding an item's quality, please contact us prior to purchasing by emailing Boutique@CareerWardrobe.org or calling 215-568-6693.

Can I Consign Items?

Although not primarily a consignment store, The Wardrobe Boutique does accept high-end designer consignment items via private appointment.  We also have a select number of wholesale and consignment relationships with independent designers.  For more information on opportunities to be featured in our store, please contact us at consignment@careerwardrobe.org.

Can I Donate Clothing and Accessories?

Yes!  If you are in the Philadelphia region, we have drop off locations in Philadelphia, Bucks and Delaware Counties!  We ask that you donate your clothing that is only in good condition, free of stains/tears/imperfections.  Please keep your donations on hangers or neatly folded in shopping bags so that we may process them appropriately. 

Items that are not suitable for Career Wardrobe's client services or for resale at The Wardrobe Boutique will be donated to another charity or recycling partner.  If you know of an organization that can use our excess inventory, please contact the Boutique Manager for details.

Outside of Southeastern PA?  We are founding  member of the Alliance of Career Development Nonprofits (formerly The Women's Alliance) and one of our sister agencies throughout the United States would be happy to have your donations for their programs.  Visit www.acdnonline.org to find a partner program near you.

If you are a charity, are my puchases tax-deductible?

Unfortunately, no, your purchases are not tax-deductible.  But your clothing donations and outright financial gifts to the Career Wardrobe are.  In addition, clothing donors receive an instant 10% savings when making purchases at The Wardrobe Boutique's Philadelphia store.

Can I Get a Refund or Return An Item?

All sales from The Wardrobe Boutique are final.  Please consider your purchases carefully and contact us directly at 215-568-6693 if you believe an item merits a return or refund.
