Dress Best for Less

Dress Best for Less

Dress Best for Less (DBFL) is a nonprofit thrift store that has supported the Piedmont public schools since its founding in 1982. 

If you are interested in thrifting, recycling, and making money for the kids, please consider volunteering with our nonprofit by checking off the “Volunteer Opportunities" box above.  It’s a great way to meet new friends, recycle, while financially supporting children of our community. The monthly commitment can be as little as 2 hours a month. 

Please donate new or close-to-new home décor, clothing, and ski/snowboarding gear to help us keep our Piedmont Avenue store open and thriving.

Follow us on Facebook (@ShopDBFL) and Instagram (@dressbestforless) and rate us on Yelp to help spread the word!
