Unreal. We were completely speechless and heartbroken at not just the complete lack of environmental awareness but in these difficult times a disregard for our fellow human beings in need.
Cut off fingers from gloves? How heartless can retailers be?
Thanks to one of my fabulous clients for giving us the heads up about this atrocity.

A Clothing Clearance Where More Than Just the Prices Have Been Slashed
As Masibvo wrote us "I don't know what is more upsetting about this story. What they are (and are not) doing or the customers response to the issue. Most seem to be of the thought that they are glad the clothes are not donated since they would not want to see a homeless individual in the same article of clothing as they have. I hope that this is the younger customers that hold this attitude, and they will be taught that it is a horrible way to think about your fellow citizens in need.
This is just another reason to buy vintage and support small business!"
We will never ever discard a clothing item, always give away and donate, never in the landfill.
