In order to make your donation experience as smooth as possible remember these time saving tips:

  1. Park in one of the loading zone spaces located along Rudy’s Pizza.
  2. Have your items in bags or boxes that you are comfortable donating.
  3. Avoid the hours of 11:30AM-1:30PM Tuesday-Friday as these hours are typically the heaviest parking times for downtown Bellingham.
  4. Pre-list your donated items on a sheet of paper to remember what you are donating/easy reference for your donation slip.
  5. Review our list of accepted items prior to arriving at the shop.
Wise Buys accepts gently used and new clothing, household and kitchen items five days a week. Our donation drop-off area is located inside at the rear of the store. Make sure to request a donation slip when dropping off your item(s) should you wish to pursue a tax donation credit.
