It is great to visit a resale that takes pride in the items that are on their racks and savy as to what will sell. Turning down old and outdated items is a plus. These items would take up space with items that would not sell which in return would defeat their purpose. I can always find something that is a quality item and visit every chance I have.

I don't happen to be Catholic but I make a regular habit of perusing the shelves and racks of the Charity Guild every time I'm in the neighborhood, which these days is nearly once a week...lately I've most enjoyed searching for treasures (accessories) to decorate my new house, and I have discovered you just have to be patient...as in any thrift or resale shop the key is visiting often...I have found some great buys! All the ladies who work (volunteer workers, by the way) in the store are friendly and very helpful.... I can't say that I have ever left without buying at least a little something, and any and all the money I spend here I feel is going for a good cause. I highly recommend the Catholic Charity Guild!

Has the reason for the season of charitable giving gone ??Boutique??

In a city where the act of charitable giving the notion of selling donated items for a charitable cause should leave that joy in your heart? has it gone as far as to turn away determined donators?

When approached by residents who are eager to give, are donated items being prioritized in order of high dollar checks their labels will bring? On a recent visit to the Charity Guild on Lovett, a friend carefully combed through a closet of cherished belongings, hoping to make a difference for someone less fortunate, only to find herself walking back to her car (after waiting in line for an hour) with a pile of clothing that was claimed ??inadequate? for this label grabbing charitable organization. It is a shame that this is not the first time this organization that is supposed to be built on the cornerstone of values and good deed has sent its supporters packing back with their clothing. There is what the Guild calls a ??boutique list? if you are accustom to bringing in such labels as Donna Karan or Dolce and Gabbana, you are privileged to ??unique and convenient? drop-off hours that others are not privy to. The question that comes to mind is this - what motivations would drive such a practice for turning some away and making it easier for those who can afford to consign high priced labels, and does it counter its purpose?

That is for the giver to decide. Careful not to let the door hit you on the way out with the sign that states ??We only accept in-style clothing?.

The Charity Guild is a non-profit organization that describes its mission principally through the practice of the spiritual and corporal works of mercy.
