Each year Fashion savvy shoppers from Philadelphia’s Main Line and throughout the whole Delaware Valley eagerly await the Community Clothes Charity (CCC) sale of donated designer fashions. This year, the four day shopping extravaganza, kicks off on Wednesday, October 25, from 1 pm until 8 pm. The 2017 sale will be held at the Girl Scouts of Eastern Pennsylvania, Shelly Ridge Service Center, 330 Manor Road, Miquon (Lafayette Hill), PA and continues with varying hours until 2 pm on Saturday, October 28th.  


The 2017 fundraising sale kicks off with a “Preview Day” on Wednesday, October 25, from 1 pm to 8 pm.  Eager shoppers are glad to make a $30 donation at the door on Wednesday to get the first chance to buy bargain priced fashions and accessories.  On Thursday, October 26, shopping runs from 11 am until 8 pm.  A donation of $5 is requested on Thursday October 26, but entry is always free the last two days, Friday and Saturday, which are also the 2 days when the already low CCC prices get cut in half.  On Friday, October 27, hours are 10 am to 4 pm and on Saturday, October 28, shop for bargains galore from 10 am but just until 2pm. 


 The CCC’s annual sale is known for offering famous labels such as Chanel, Hermès, Ferragamo, Carolina Herrera, St. John, Escada, and other designer names that appeal to bargain loving women interested in couture and high fashion. But many other well-known popular labels in all sizes are also very well represented among the large selection of coats, suits, dresses, evening gowns, and sportswear that will all be marked down to just a fraction of their original cost.   This year, the sale has an especially large selection of wonderful plus sized fashions, lots of fashions in sizes for everyone! 


The “Boutique” area is enlarged this year and features wonderful costume jewelry, scarves, hats, and handbags, designer shoes, plus gifts and an expanded number of small home décor items. Experienced shoppers know to return to the sale several times to catch all the bargains as the racks and tables get replenished each day.  Feel great about helping philadelphia non profits while finding incredible bargains. 



The CCC, a 501C3 charitable organization, has had a large impact on Philadelphia and the greater Delaware Valley ever since its original inception in 1957 to aid hospitalized war veterans. Over the years this group has donated over $4,500,000 to many worthy beneficiaries.   Each year the Committee chooses a different charitable group or two to receive the proceeds of the sale of new and gently used designer fashions and accessories.
