Pay It Forward: A New Partnership with Flair Trade Consignment

Have you ever wondered whether your designer clothing and accessories are appropriate for our GLOW clothing bank clients? As GLOW focuses on meeting basic clothing needs, many of these items end up languishing on the racks. With the new Pay It Forward program, New Circles donors are invited to drop off high-end designer items in re-saleable condition to our consignment partner Flair Trade.

Simply drop off your items Tuesday-Friday, 12:00-6:00 pm or Saturday, 12:00-5:00 pm at Flair Trade’s convenient Yonge Street location (click for map). A seasoned Flair Trade buyer will assess the items you wish to donate and determine their re-sale value. These items will be displayed in a special area of the shop and 70% of the sale proceeds will go back to New Circles to support GLOW.

Don’t have any items to donate? You and your fashionista friends can still shop at Flair Trade for great deals on these designer duds that will directly benefit New Circles clients.

It’s truly a win-win!

As a general guideline, Flair Trade accepts gently-used, top brand-name and designer clothing, shoes and accessories that retail for $200 or more. Please visit www.flairtrade.ca for more information on suitable items for re-sale.

Of course, New Circles will also continue to accept gently-used, clean clothing and accessories at our 161 Bartley location. Visit www.newcircles.ca/get-involved/donate-clothing to learn about our donation guidelines.
