Adelaide's Attic Vintage Clothing and Donation Centre

Adelaide’s Attic is a vintage clothing and household items store with proceeds supporting YWCA Durham.

The store provides women in the community with clothing, accessories and linens at very low prices. Adelaide’s Attic offers clothing for the entire family as well as small house wares, linens, dishes and much more. Items start as low as $1.

YWCA Durham receives new donations every week so it’s never the same store twice!

The vision for Adelaide’s Attic was to provide women in the community with the opportunity to shop in a boutique setting for stylish and affordable clothing for themselves as well as their family. 

Adelaide’s Attic also provides volunteer opportunities for women to gain retail store experience while earning gift certificates for shopping.
