Have you been binging on Tidying Up? Have you removed piles of clothing from your closet, your partner’s closet, your kid’s closets — that just don’t spark joy? We’ve got a list of places — beyond Goodwill — for those in the Greater Nashville Area to take all those clothes that need to move on (out of your home!) and bring joy to others. Read on, mamas — we’ve done the research for you.
As you shop at 12th Avenue Thrift, you help a Veteran find employment, find sustainable housing, and transition from successful military service to a productive civilian life.
We’d love to take your gently used, top quality clothes, small appliances, and furniture. You can drop off goods Monday – Saturday: 9:00 am to 5:00 pm at the 12th Avenue Thrift. For furniture or large item pickups, call (615) 248-1981 extension 208 to schedule a pick-up. Our pickup area includes Davidson County, Brentwood and Franklin.

What would you wear to a job interview? That is exactly the type of clothing they look for to distribute to their clients. Your fabulous suits and other professional apparel could furnish another woman with the confidence to enter or return to the workplace, make a great first impression and land a job that could change her life.
Clothing should be in current styles – something a modern woman would wear to work. Gently-used clothing should be freshly cleaned and in excellent shape. All clothing must be brought in on hangers – we’re unable to accept bags or boxes of clothing. We appreciate clothing in all sizes but have a great need for clothing in sizes 16 & up, and shoes in sizes 9 & up.
IMPORTANT: Clothing donation drop-off program operates on the first & third Tuesdays of each month. Clothing donation drop-offs will not be accepted without an appointment. Please call 615-269-9922 to schedule an appointment.
