restoration
Most clothes and accessories are ready to go but some need preparing for sale – steaming, ironing or hanging out for a while.
Others are for sale separately that need marks removed or need restoring or remodelling, or could be used for fabric or trim. .

sale rack
There are a few odds and ends being unpacked that have little commercial value but are too interesting to throw out. It would be a shame to rag anything or send it to landfill if someone can use it.

Available in bulk for some one to retail, hire or wholesale.
