The hit comedy series Schitt's Creek has generated rave reviews, but it wasn't only the tack-sharp writing or the actors' comedic chops that kept people laughing: it was also the vast and opulent wardrobes of the once-wealthy fictional family.

Now, as the show enters its sixth and final season, fans can take home some of those unforgettable duds as the costumes are going up for sale on Thursday — and partial proceeds are going to charity.

"The countdown is on! On October 3rd at 12pm EST, over 800 pieces from Emmy-nominated Schitt's Creek will drop on vspconsignment.com," reads a message on the website on the Toronto consignment shop's website.

"Shop the closets of the Rose family and get your hands on iconic designer pieces & collectible memorabilia straight from Schitt's Creek."

The Emmy-nominated show — which stars Eugene Levy, Catherine O'Hara, Daniel Levy and Annie Murphy — follows a video store magnate, a soap opera actress and their two grown children who lose their fortune after getting ripped off by their business manager.

Exactly which pieces are going up for sale is being kept secret, but Schitt's Creek devotees can almost certainly expect to see some of Moira's over-the-top evening gowns, David's overstated sweaters, and Alexis' sassy mini-dresses. 

Some of the luxury brands include Givenchy, Balenciaga, Alexander McQueen and Dsquared2; other items, including a Rose Video polo shirst and a Cafe Tropical baseball hat reference elements of the show.

Partial proceeds from the sale are going to GLSEN, a non-profit that aims to eliminate harassment and bullying of LGBTQ students in schools.

The final season of Schitt's Creek premieres Jan. 7 on CBC.
