Apparel and Accessories

Offers a list of organizations that sell reused and recycled apparel and accessories, such as clothing, mittens, jewelry, hair pins and clips, purses, messenger bags, etc.

The City of St. Louis offers this list of apparel and accessory retailers, which is not inclusive, to help citizens buy recycled.  The City does not endorse any of these businesses or services.  Space does not allow us to include all stores and products that may be applicable to this list.  The variety and availability of these products in stores may change at anytime.  Companies located within the City of St. Louis are noted with an image of the Arch, while companies located in Missouri are marked with the State silhouette.
