Intuit’s Closet Clearance Sale is an annual fundraiser that includes thousands of new, vintage and gently-used clothing and accessory items donated from Chicago’s best retailers, closets, manufacturers and designers. Offering all sizes (0-3X) for all seasons, the sale takes up the museum’s entire second floor space for a whole weekend.
Come shop ‘til you drop to raise funds for the museum! 100% of the Closet Clearance Sale proceeds directly support Intuit’s exhibitions, programming and educational initiatives that celebrate outsider art. Last year’s sale raked in more than $23,000 thanks to supporters and shoppers like you!
We are now accepting donations of gently-used, vintage, and new clothing and accessories! Donations of clothing are tax-deductible, and each donor will receive a free ticket to the “First Dibs” pre-sale event on Friday evening, May 1.
Most days of the Sale are free admission, but with a $25 charge (or donation of clothing before the event) you can gain special pre-sale entry ahead of anyone else! Get access to the best items before they are gone by registering for Intuit’s Friday night VIP First Dibs event. You can pay at the door or purchase your ticket online here in advance.
What: Gently used, new and vintage high-quality clothing of all sizes for all seasons and all genders.
How: Please pre-wash all clothing and place donations inside a sturdy bag or container. Clothes hangers welcome.
Where: Drop off clothing donations at Intuit: The Center for Intuitive and Outsider Art at 756 N. Milwaukee Ave., Chicago, between noon-5 p.m. every day (except Monday when the museum is closed).
Why: Donating clothes to the Sale grants you entrance into the VIP First Dibs event where you’ll be the first to scour the racks for unbelievable finds. Your donation is tax deductible AND supports the museum, too!
