The primary mission of My Sister’s Closet Boutique is to provide quality and affordable clothing to women and families in our community. We also have many outfits for women who are entering or re-entering the job market.
The shop is open to the public.
Proceeds assist the YWCA Domestic Violence Crisis and Prevention Services Program. The Closet also provides domestic violence clients with clothing when needed.

In 1996, the idea of a women’s shop featuring pre-owned clothing became real. YWCA staff members, Sandy Funke and Linda Olson, developed a volunteer-based program from what had originally been planned as a grant-funded opportunity. A committee was formed and enthusiasm for the project grew.
The Daily News provided a photo and story to explain the YWCA’s need for clothing and volunteers. There were 18 interested and eager women at the first volunteer recruitment meeting. Clothing racks, hangers, a display counter, and other useful items were gathered. My Sister’s Closet Boutique opened for business in March 1996.
The number of volunteers, donations, and customers grew, and by 2005, the original location became overcrowded. My Sister’s Closet Boutique re-opened in newly refurbished and larger quarters but even that space eventually became too crowded. Another move in 2007 put My Sister’s Closet in a larger room and worked for a long time with a great space.
In 2019 YWCA put the building up for sale, and a new owner was soon to move in. So from January 14th to April 8th My Sister’s Closet Closed temporarily for renovations and relocation. We are now in a new location near the YWCA Main Office and we are so excited about the new adventure in this new space.
