    • I went to our parish rummage sale today. Everything is donated and proceeds go to the upkeep on our parsonage.  I bought two absolutely gorgeous scarves.  Got them home, tried one on and it smelled to high heaven of some revolting perfume.  Sure hope it’s washable because I had to wash it.  Why would someone donate something that wasn’t clean?  I also bought a t-shirt that smells like it spent 3 years in someone’s basement.  Ewww.

    • Clothes that I give away have been washed, but I don’t rewash if it’s been in my closet or dresser drawers for awhile.  I think if you give to a thrift store such as Goodwill they do wash it prior to selling because they are not smelly. However, there are some that the store should have tossed because they are stained or torn. I haven’t donated anything to a church sale, but if I did and the clothes were musty I would wash them again.

    • Yes, and I have been lucky to find some goodies for myself at our local thrift store that have been well taken care of and clean.  That isn’t right, T, that someone would just throw smelly clothing in a bag and take it to the organization, geez, that is being lazy.

    • I always wash and make sure what I give is in good shape. When I purchase something used from anywhere, the first thing I do is wash them.
