Idris’ Closet is a formal wear thrift store. We collect donations year-round from staff and attendees. All of our proceeds go to the Make-a-Wish® Foundation, and anyone who donates will receive an “I donated!” button.

Alteration Station:

Found the perfect outfit, but it’s missing a button? Does the fabric have a tear? Sleeves are a little too long? The Alteration Station is available for small alterations and repairs for clothing bought in our department.


Join us again this year for another round of Hop to the Top, our origami frog game! We have three Studio Ghibli-themed prizes to offer this year, so stop by Idris’ Closet for more details. No purchases or donations are necessary to enter the giveaway and doing so will not improve your chances of winning.
