About Twice Is Nice:
For 30 years TIN has been a vibrant part of the Charlottesville area community, as both a retail thrift shop offering curated and affordable clothing, jewelry, furniture, and household items, and as a successful nonprofit. With 70 active volunteers helping to manage two Preston Avenue locations, TIN offers rewarding opportunities for area residents to give back to their community. The stated mission of Twice is Nice is “to raise revenue to benefit seniors in need, while promoting sustainability through the resale of donated clothing, furniture, and household items.” The TIN team makes every effort to find an appropriate home for all donations. Items the staff feels they cannot sell are passed on to other nonprofits, such as All Blessings Flow and Soles4Soles. The landfill is the last option.
