High Tor Gear Exchange

High Tor Gear Exchange The first outdoor gear and clothing consignment shop in Charlottesville, featuring the products you need to get outside and do the things you love. 30-70% off new and used high-quality outdoor gear and clothing for hiking, biking, camping, & paddling.

High Tor Gear Exchange is a combination of our love of the outdoors and our desire to transform the way we buy stuff, in this case, how we buy the clothes and products we need to spend more time outside.

This Saturday, 10/30, McIntire Plaza will be hosting their first ever Fall Festival between 12pm and 4pm! To help sweeten this family friendly event even more, were offering 20% OFF all Kid's Clothing and Footwear, and handing out candy at the register!
Parking may be tight, so we encourage walking or riding bikes if you can! We ask that everyone please hold off on bringing in new consignment that day, as we're expecting much higher volumes of foot traffic than usual.

New pieces this week perfectly match the fall colors of the porcelain berry along the Rivanna River at The Wool Factory!
.
Shop these amazing pieces in-store, and then head over to @the_wool_factory for a brisk morning walk along the #rivannariver paired with special seasonal coffee from @theworkshop_cville , lunch @selvedgebrewing , or a riverside stroll after dinner @broadclothrestaurant !
.
Quick Note: Though pretty to look at, porcelain berry is an invasive species. We don't recommend planting or transplanting any in your yard, and suggest checking out the @virginianativeplants for more information about how to help reduce invasive species and encourage native growth in our wild and urban spaces alike. ❤️

It's the last day to bid for this, and 16 other artistically uncycled chairs, in the Chair-ity Auction to benefit Nearby Baby: a nonprofit that specializes in providing postpartum doula care to underserved families in the Charlottesville!
These chairs are displayed in 17 amazing small businesses across town, and online. The chairs were all donated from our neighbors at the Habitat Store, and ours was painted and reupholstered by the students and staff at Mountaintop Montessori Middle School!

Our Story

High Tor Gear Exchange is a combination of our love of the outdoors and our desire to transform the way we buy stuff, in this case, how we buy the clothes and products we need to spend more time outside. The inspiration for the shop came about in part as we sought a way to have a positive impact in Charlottesville, as well as to create a movement towards more conscious consumption. Our goal is to give the Charlottesville community access to high quality used outdoor gear and clothing, and to create an avenue for participation in the circular economy. MISSION Our mission is to provide environmentally responsible buying options for outdoor gear and clothing. We support local individuals, businesses, and nonprofits who are stewards of the environment and advocates of outdoor exploration. WHAT WE DO We are Charlottesville's first home for outdoor gear and clothing consignment. We sell quality new and used gear and clothing, and feature outdoor products crafted by local artisans. We connect members of the Charlottesville community with the resources needed to get outside, and provide a gathering space for outdoor and environmental programming and events.
