If you’ve been looking for a way to de-clutter your wardrobe, NFB Yard Sale is for you then.The platform founded with the aim to foster a community-driven approach to shopping, helps individuals to release unwanted fashionable pieces from their closets and yet make some money out of it.

The yard sale also comes with an auction for a charitable cause. The aim is to support the vision of educating more young girls in the field of Hospitality by contributing to the expansion project of Iroto School of Catering.
“People sometimes buy things they never wear, own things they love that no longer fits, or just simply arrive at a stage in their lives that calls for a change of style; new job, new resolutions, or new tastes. These are few reasons why clothes end up unused or as clutter in most wardrobes.”
*Old treasures find new homes.*
At the yard sale, you’ll get to shop from a diverse collection of styles, sizes, and price points.

The Yard Sale team is currently in correspondence with a representative of the Women’s Board Educational Cooperation Society, a not-for-profit NGO set up to contribute to the development of the Nigerian woman through various educational activities. The mission of the school is to continuously equip young women from impoverished backgrounds with skills and a better chance of sustaining themselves and their families.
