Ask the 3 C's

Before you enter your items for the sale, ask yourself the 3 C’s: Is it cute? Is it clean? Is it current? If you are questioning any of those answers, save it for your garage sale. Bring only your best. We want this shopping experience to feel more like an eclectic boutique than a thrift store. We accept gently used items in current styles and excellent condition free of stains, smells, and tears. We will be accepting fall/winter clothes at our fall sale and spring/summer clothing at our spring sale. We have also added a vintage rack for items in excellent condition from the 80’s and earlier. Listed below are items we accept for each of the unique boutiques within My Sister’s House.
