As if you needed one more reason to visit our favorite stretch of L.A. retail (Greats’ new pop-up, Murad’s first-ever flagship, Face Haus’ quickie facials just to get the ball rolling), select shops on West Third Street have all banded together to celebrate a month of charitable shopping. The shopping stretch has teamed up with the Downtown’s Women Center, a charity that helps L.A.’s homeless population and low-income women that live in Los Angeles, for collection centers that will get you a sweet discount with every donation.

Some of West Third’s biggest names, including Alexis Bittar, Entre Nous, Bedhead Pajamas, Polkadots and Moonbeams, Jane of Tarzana, Plastica Shop and Show Pony will have drop-off boxes where you can donate gently used clothing and shoes. In return, you’ll be able to take advantage of 10-20% off your purchase at each boutique (the discount differs at each spot).

Consider it a conscious way to cleanse your wardrobe and pick up a few new pieces to give your fall rotation some new statement pieces. Over at Beckley boutique, you’ll get the discount with a donation of denim at their Denim Drive. Grab a new 2014 style for 20% off when you drop off a pair of your old blues. In addition to taking in your tuckered-out denim, Beckley will be offering a selection of jeans donated by Citizens of Humanity, Closed Denim and Nation LTD so you’ll have plenty to choose from when you take advantage of that 20% off. 

If you’ve got old costume jewelry lying around, Mom’s the Word is where you’ll want to go for 20% off. And if you’re a serial knitter with some scraps left, tuck away those loose ends in a bag and take them over to Knit Culture Studio for a sweet 15% discount. Shopaholic Sample Sales is offering 20% off one item when you bring in gently used cold-weather clothes, such as jackets, sweaters and long-sleeved t-shirts.

The charitable shopping event runs through the end of the month, so you’ve got plenty of time to purge your stash and plan your shopping trip.
