Thrift Store Donations:
The BEST and SAFEST way to donate to our Thrift Store is to do so during business hours, Monday – Saturday 10:00 am – 5:00 pm. This will ensure that the clothing are immediately removed from the weather and secured. Just bring them in the front door, or to our garage door off he alley.
PLEASE limit what is just placed by the back door. Too often we arrive in the morning to find bags of clothing either torn apart or soaking wet. In both these cases too often we must destroy the donation, costing us money rather than making money, which is why you donate.
Our store is small in size and cannot accept furniture. Our focus in on clothing, shoes and jewelry. We do accept Board Games, Puzzles, Children’s books, VHS & DVD, and small household nic-naks.
