Donation based and
volunteer run


Shop with a Purpose

Twice is Nice is an entirely donation based upscale resale boutique which features men’s and women’s clothing, accessories, collectibles, home décor, and furnishings generously donated by our community. 

We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit with proceeds going directly to programs in the greater Charlottesville area that benefit seniors in need.


Benefits of Buying Secondhand

It’s not just retail therapy for you. The ripple effect from your purchase expands much wider than your wallet…

The proceeds specifically benefit local seniors in need, but our store also provides volunteer and job opportunities that enrich our entire community. The money spent here on affordable clothing and goods stays in our Charlottesville community. The donations we receive but cannot use are re-gifted to other Virginia nonprofits, some of which work globally. Going green by reusing and recycling your unwanted items keeps them out of landfills, saves water, reduces waste, and lowers carbon emissions.

Our Story

Twice Is Nice, originally Yesterday’s Clothes, was opened over 35 years ago by two sisters who wanted their business to help the community. Our expansion began in late 2018 with a second, more spacious location across the street from the original. We’ve dubbed the stores TIN1 and TIN2, and look forward to having you visit both locations!

For many years, the proceeds exclusively assisted Mountainside Senior Living and its residents. In 2019, our focus shifted to creating our own grants to benefit more local organizations. We have partnered with the Charlottesville Area Community Foundation to create the Twice is Nice Fund for this purpose.

Twice Is Nice is primarily a volunteer based thrift shop with over 80 active volunteers. Our volunteers are supported by two full time staff (an Operations Manager and Assistant Manager) and numerous part time cashiers and processing staff that are responsible for the daily operation of both stores. An active and involved working Board of Directors oversees and works closely with the Operations Manager.
