Kind Exchange is a local store that buys and sells gently-used clothing for women and men. But this isn’t any old thrift store with ratty clothes labelled as “vintage”. Kind Exchange offers designer fashions at a huge discount and they don’t buy anything they can’t sell quickly which means all of the clothing is in good condition at a great price. They also offer the opportunity for customers to donate proceeds from selling their clothes to local charities and non-profit organizations.
My favourite part about Kind Exchange is their emphasis on community.
By the community, for the community, at Kind Exchange our clothing and accessories are bought, sold and traded locally with our customers. Each boutique’s inventory is a representation of the community – there is a story behind every piece in our inventory. We sell everything from designer labels, vintage, jeans, leather, basics and truly unique, one-of-a-kind items. You’ll also find brand new merchandise and accessories, as well.
