The Woods Hole Child Center will hold its 34th annual clothing sale at St. Barnabas Episcopal Church Hall on the Falmouth Village Green on Saturday, October 16.

The selection of clothing includes outerwear, women’s and men’s casuals and professional attire, children’s clothing, shoes, and Halloween costumes.

Due to COVID, some temporary changes have been made to the sale. This year the child center is only accepting donations of clothing, shoes and linens and cannot accept toys, books or baby equipment. For the safety of all, the child center strongly discourages bringing young unvaccinated children to the sale. Masks will be required.

Doors open at 9 AM. Clothing is priced very reasonably; most items are priced between $5 and $20. The sale ends with a “$5-a-bag” blitz from 2 to 3 PM.

This is a very popular part of the event and many who shop earlier in the day return for this bargain bonanza.

Proceeds from the clothing sale will help cover the center’s operational expenses.

The child center accepts gently used clothing, and it is happy to sell items on consignment with a 50/50 split. Interested donors are encouraged to visit the website ( and click on the tab labeled “2021 Clothing Sale” or contact the child center at 508-548-1773 for more information.

Clothing dropoff is scheduled for Friday, October 15, from 9 AM to 1 PM, at St. Barnabas Hall.

In order to further benefit the community, the WHCC would like to work with other local charitable entities by offering them the opportunity to come pick up the clothing at the end of the sale. This must be pre-arranged through the child center.
