The Crowded Closet is the North Shore's oldest women's apparel resale store dedicated to providing the finest customer service. We are small enough to get to know you and large enough to satisfy most of your apparel wants and needs at very remarkable prices. Our friendly, competent staff work hard to make shopping at our store an enjoyable, fun experience.
The Crowded Closet is a privately-owned resale store founded in 1974. Our store was started in Evanston by 3 women who were at the leading edge of social responsibility by reducing the consumption of natural resources used in the production and distribution of new apparel. Over the years, we have been located at a number of Evanston locations, but none have been as warm and pleasant as our current home at 808 Dempster. We are grateful for our many loyal fans and we are fortunate to continue to serve second and third generation customers and consignors. Today, the store is owned and operated by Cindy Caldwell and Mickie Donohue, who is one of the original founders.
The Crowded Closet offers a wide selection of designer and name brand women's casual and formal apparel; shoes and purses; jewelry and watches; and everything a woman needs to accessorize their individual style. The store has become a "must stop" shopping destination for both the North Shore's homemaker's and busy professional women. Plus, there are many regular shoppers who come into the store from out of state.
