We love Alice, in all her shifting shapes and sizes! Illustrations by Sir John Tenniel from the 1865 edition of Alice in Wonderland are public domain.

‍Because ‍size ‍12 ‍and ‍larger ‍women’s ‍shoes ‍make ‍up ‍less ‍than ‍2 ‍percent ‍of ‍the ‍market, ‍they ‍are ‍hard ‍to ‍find ‍in ‍thrift ‍shops. ‍Women ‍who ‍wear ‍large ‍sizes ‍are ‍often ‍reluctant ‍to ‍donate ‍their ‍shoes ‍because ‍they ‍figure ‍no ‍one ‍wants ‍them, ‍while ‍women ‍who ‍would ‍like ‍to ‍buy ‍them ‍search ‍in ‍vain ‍for ‍the ‍elusive ‍size ‍11, ‍12, ‍13 ‍or ‍higher. ‍

‍The ‍same ‍is ‍true ‍for ‍tall-sized ‍or ‍large-sized ‍clothing.

‍As ‍a ‍result, ‍barely ‍worn ‍clothes ‍and ‍shoes ‍languish ‍unused ‍in ‍closets ‍or ‍are ‍thrown ‍away.

‍Alice’s ‍Wardrobe ‍is ‍a ‍nonprofit ‍project ‍to ‍serve ‍women ‍who ‍wear ‍larger ‍sizes, ‍while ‍also ‍keeping ‍high ‍quality ‍clothes ‍and ‍shoes ‍out ‍of ‍the ‍landfill. ‍By ‍donating ‍your ‍gently ‍worn ‍clothes ‍and ‍shoes, ‍you ‍will ‍help ‍these ‍items ‍find ‍new ‍owners, ‍who ‍will ‍be ‍delighted ‍to ‍find ‍clothing ‍and ‍shoes ‍in ‍their ‍size ‍at ‍a ‍price ‍they ‍can ‍afford.

‍Alice’s ‍Wardrobe ‍is ‍located ‍within ‍the ‍existing ‍Council ‍Thrift ‍Shop ‍at ‍360 ‍N. ‍Fairfax ‍Ave. ‍in ‍Los ‍Angeles. ‍All ‍Council ‍Thrift ‍Shops ‍in ‍the ‍Los ‍Angeles ‍Area ‍benefit ‍the ‍programs ‍and ‍services ‍of ‍NCJW/LA, ‍championing ‍the ‍needs ‍of ‍women, ‍children ‍and ‍families. ‍

‍For ‍further ‍information, ‍including ‍how ‍to ‍donate ‍shoes ‍or ‍clothing, ‍please ‍email ‍Alice’s ‍Wardrobe.
