Have you ever gone to a store and loved the atmosphere so much that you just didn’t want to leave? Like ever? Like you wanted to set up camp in a cute little Target-style teepee, order takeout, and just straight up chill while surrounded by the all the pretty things and awesome employees?
That’s how I feel about WearWoof. If you’re in the Pittsburgh area, you should go there. You’ll feel that way, too.
WearWoof is a resale boutique located in the McIntyre Square shopping plaza in the North Hills, and I love it for oh-so-many reasons:
- It’s a nonprofit organization, run mostly by volunteers.
- It’s a women’s and junior’s resale clothing boutique, with an amazing selection of stylish clothes.
- It combines the thrill of the hunt of thrift shopping with an already curated collection of new and gently used clothing, shoes, accessories, home decor, etc.
- Prices are seriously competitive, and sales are plentiful.
- Proceeds from sales benefit local animal shelters, spay and neutering programs, adoption events, community outreach and education, and more.
- !! THE BEST PART !! There’s a kitty named Dolly who lives at the store, and she’s kind of my favorite (aside from Sidney and Mario, of course!).
So basically, the way it works is that the boutique takes clothing and home decor donations, volunteers help to run the register, prep the clothes, dress the mannequins, etc., and people like you and me go shop there.
Sounds awesome, right?
Well, you’re in luck. This Monday, January 30, WearWoof is having a private Spring Preview Sale from 6-8PM. I visited for a little sneak peek of everything (and I’ve included some pics below), and guys, I’ve never seen so many cute clothes in one place. There are 115 bins of clothing, shoes, and accessories stacked floor to ceiling. Volunteers are busting their rears (HA! I love when I unintentionally rhyme) to get these clothes ready for the sale on Monday.
Not only do you get first dibs on spring styles, but you’ll also get a discount that the public won’t have access to once the event is over.
Did I mention that this event is FREE? The only thing you need to do is register ahead of time.

Pro tip: When you come to the sale, you should definitely look for a little black dress to wear to WearWoof’s Little Black Dress party. I seriously can’t wait for this event! It’s February 19 at SoHo on the North Side, and there are going to be all kinds of awesome things happening. Click here to see what I mean and to buy tickets!
Now, on to the pretty pretty Spring Preview pictures:
Obviously, I made a beeline for the shoes. This is probably, like, 1/5837th of the shoes that will be available at the preview sale.
Then, I saw stars (which are EVERYTHING right now!).
I also explored the shop a bit (part of what I love about it is that the store receives hundreds of donations a week, so there’s always something new to look at.). Gold star (and a repost!) to whoever buys the body chain on the right, styles it, snaps a picture of it, and tags the WearWoof account, my account, and your favorite body-chain-wearing celebrity’s account. That last one is just for funsies.
I couldn’t help myself…I had to do a little styling. Top left: Spring break, anyone? (PS…that romper is one of my donated pieces!). Top right: Festival-chic. Bottom: Colorfully business casual.
Last, but certainly not least, Dolly takes a little rest from working hard. Heart eyes.
I can’t wait to see you at the sale!
