I'm a local resident who grew up in Iowa City, and I have always loved this store. Growing up I bought dressy mens dress pants, bandannas, bags, silver, jewelery and much more. They also have an international gift store where they sell things from 3rd world countries and give the money back to them.

This store is a GEM with great volunteer service.

This is an interesting little store. It has your normal Goodwill type merchandise (1960's lamps, old bedding, ugly knick-knacks), but mixed in there you can find some nice things. They are priced much lower then Goodwill. I was looking for Children's clothing. I found boy's t-shirts for .25 each! (yes I said .25 :) Pajama sets $1-$2, pants $1-$3.
The only downside is the selection. It's very limited. They have only a few clothing racks for kids. You would need to be a repeat shopper to pick up a lot of deals on clothing.
They also carry books, videos, bedding, & an interesting import section of new items from around the world. The book section is very nice & arranged by topic. Children's books are .50 for hardback & .25 for soft. Adult novels are also very inexpensive. The staff is friendly & the place is clean/bright. (although the building is grungy looking)
Overall I believe I will be hooked on this place while we are in Iowa. I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 due to lack of clothing items. I will be going back soon when I have more time to view the books.

I ventured into the Crowded closet one day many years ago looking for some Halloween items, and since then I have visited and re-visited this store more times than I can mention! It is neat, clean, well organized and has friendly, helpful staff. The prices are low and on more than one occasion I even received a lower price on and item for one reason or another.

Another one of CROWDED CLOSET'S plus' is the fact that they carry, in addition to their "gently used" items, articles that have been imported from all around the world. These handcrafted items vary by the shiopment and time of year so my advise is, if you see something you like, but it, it may not be there the next time you are in the store.

Located on 1213 Gilbert Street, they take a bit of looking to find but when you do locate them you will be glad, and you'llbe a repeat customer as wel.....trust me!

PROS: ...clean, neat merchandise at a reasonable price
CONS: ...you may have to make a couple of trips....new stuff arrives all the time
