I have lots of high-end clothing and shoes, boots, native jewelry. Told my husband he might as well make some money on my stuff.

My stuff would go straight to the trash, except maybe a few pieces of vintage costume jewelry and a few funky dresses from the eighties that I still have hanging around, assuming retro is still a thing when I die.

My jewelry, good vintage handbags and Hermès scarves will be divided up by my daughters.
The rest donated to charity.

What a curious question. What do you think should happen to them, OP? In my mother's case, she had a stash of fancy purses for special nights out, like the opera, and whatever. I went through them, thinking I could make special gifts to people who had helped her in her last years. I discovered nearly all of them were damaged in some way, and never repaired.

Other than that, she didn't have anything worth saving. She didn't have any makeup, except some foundation. (Who uses recycled makeup, anyway?) I gave a dressy jacket of hers to a cousin, who had admired it, and had borrowed it on one occasion. She was thrilled. Other than that....meh.

My corporate suits will go to the women's league. They helped donate to start up jobs for ladies entering the Corp. World.

My shoes- toss em! My grandma taught me shoes once worn belong on the feet of the person who broke them in. .

My homemade garments...skirts,shirts dresses, my dil will go thru. She admires tailored clothing..one of a kind.

Makeup? Toss it.

Winter coats-jackets.Our local inner city children's home is often in need.

Why would care? My estate is willed to my favorite charity. I am thinking of changing it and leaving jewelry and a portion of the estate to my favorite niece. But it not going to matter once I am dead.

I have one child, so whatever he wants to do with it all. No worries about dividing anything up. I have a couple of nieces but I think that if I choose to make specific bequests to them, I'll just give them those items and if I kick the bucket unexpectedly, then oh well.

I do have some items that are important to me that I'd like to hope would have some meaning to my son. But the reality is that as noted upthread, I won't be here to worry about it.

Not that my opinion matters to you, nor should it - but I do think that you should include your favorite niece in your will, as you mentioned. It would probably mean so much to her. If you love her that much, she probably feels the same about you.

Of course, after you're dead, it won't matter to you, but I think leaving things to people who you care about is a wonderful way to show your love to them.

Whatever my widower wants to do with them.

I expect clothes and purses (both of them) will go to a thrift store.
He might offer my jewelry to our nieces, buy they're picky.
I don't have any makeup.

The real issue is what he'll do with my craft supplies. I sold a lot of the valuable items before our last move. I suppose the rest will go to the boys and girls club or a thrift store.

My wife said to let everyone go through the clothes if they want anything. Whatever is left over goes in the trash or goodwill. (Thrash things like undergarments)
