Hybrid Activities 

    1. Customers pay per pound of fabric brought to us and we take a percentage of their thrifted items. 
    2. Sell fabric insulation and fiber filling-produced in our recycling factory. 
    3. Sell recycled fabric. 
    4. Provide additional services at a charge (decluttering).
    5. Provide  people with so many clothes with no use for them an opportunity to put them to better use for donations, recycling and thrifting. Hereby, giving clothes to those in need of them, detouring clothes from the landfills and giving people a chance to make money back from their clothes.
