The Facebook announcement:

After being part of the Whittier neighborhood for 6 years, I have had the great pleasure of meeting so many fantastic people who have, in one way or another, inspired me with their stories and friendships. As many of you know I love to travel; and for this reason I am shutting down Blacklist Vintage's physical location and moving it to my on-line shop. This allows me to still do what I love to do, finding you the most awesome vintage clothes out there, plus, get my travel on!

Thank you for all your support over the years! Please stop in and celebrate with me over the next few weeks and score some amazing deals.
On Saturday, January 25, the store will begin a four-week liquidation sale where there will be $5 bins and other deals to be had.

Over the years, Blacklist Vintage has hosted a slew of fashionable events, including the popular Minneapolis-St. Paul Fashion Week party Vintage Did It First, where NYC runway looks were recreated using vintage items found in the store. The boutique, which featured items ranging from the '20s to the '80s, also hosted the popular diggers' sale every July.

Charity is a good option, but finding high quality clothes that fit at places like Savers can be difficult. Places like Blacklist provide great stuff (they have an amazing tie selection) without having to spend hours looking.

Or donate it to charity like literally everyone else.
