Assistance League of Austin THRIFT HOUSE is a resale department store, staffed and administered entirely by member volunteers. The store is open year-round and serves as a major source of income for Assistance League of Austin’s philanthropic programs. The Austin community donates new and gently-used items — furniture, clothing, tools, office equipment, toys, household items, books, jewelry, antiques, collectibles, and much much more. THRIFT HOUSE revenues exceeded $1,000,000 last year. We have received several Armadillo Awards from the Austin Independent Business Alliance for being Austin’s “Best Kept Secret,” “Community Champion,” and best “Austin Customer Experience.” Our three Armadillo Awards have earned us a position in the Armadillo Hall of Fame. Come visit us and check out our great merchandise.

The THRIFT HOUSE Executive Committee works hard to make our eclectic resale store one of the best in Austin!
Bring your donations to the east side of the parking lot at 4901 Burnet Road during the hours we are open. Just ring the doorbell, and we’ll be pleased to give you a receipt. Because Assistance League of Austin is approved by the Internal Revenue Service as a nonprofit 501(c)(3) charitable organization, all of your donations are tax deductible.
PLEASE don’t leave items so badly damaged or soiled that we cannot resell them. We cannot accept mattresses, encyclopedias, large exercise equipment, hazardous materials, and tube TVs. We also request that goods not be left when we are closed.
