When people drop off the clothes ask for half the money then, and half the money when they return. Ask them to sign something so you have it in writing, like a short contract. On this piece of paper that they sign, state that clothing that is not picked up within 30 days will be considered your property and will be donated or sold.

If it happens a lot then you need to do something differently. Without knowing how you treat customers, talk to customers or what your policies are or prices or anything it is difficult to tell you what to do.

Have a receipt when they drop off the item. Receipt must have terms of service on it. Similar to receipts from dry cleaners. Ask for a minimum 50% deposit. When items are not retrieved in 30 days you should be able to sell it.
