A Message from Dress Best for Less

Dress Best for Less (DBFL), a charitable organization, is Piedmont’s own resale operation that sells and recycles donated goods from Piedmont residents to earn money for Piedmont students. We have donated over $1 million to the Piedmont Educational Foundation (PEF) in our almost 30 years of service. We have recycled tons of goods annually.

Help Our Schools By Donating Your Gently Used Items

DBFL appreciates the ongoing community support and has recently expanded its hours of operation at the marking room to receive donations. DBFL is always in need of gently used and good condition clothing, books, sporting goods and other small household items that will produce revenues for the schools. (Please no computers, non-working electrical items, or soiled, stained, moldy items!) Donations may be dropped off at our Marking Room at 799 Magnolia Ave. during hours of operation. Help DBFL reduce the theft of donations by dropping off only during the open hours. All donations are tax deductible.

Shop at our Store for Great Bargains

DBFL is the best upscale resale store in the East Bay! We sell only the most current styles and labels as well as household items in a friendly, organized atmosphere. Come into our Store, which is located at 3861 Piedmont Ave., during business hours (Tuesday through Saturday, 10am – 5pm) to browse and to drop off your gently used items.

Get Involved

Dress Best for Less welcomes your involvement in its efforts to support the schools and the children of Piedmont. DBFL relies on the efforts of its staff and volunteers to make the operation successful. Individuals are encouraged to volunteer in the resale store on Piedmont Avenue or the marking room. It is a great way to get involved, meet new people and find some incredible bargains! Please feel free to contact us at 658-8525 for directions or other information about our resale operations, or to learn about volunteer opportunities.
