The Thrift & Gift Shop is the main source of funding for our five philanthropic programs.  It is staffed and managed entirely by our member volunteers.  We are proud of our reputation as one of the best and friendliest thrift shops in Bellingham. Our members work hard to make sure the merchandise is always good quality, clean, and priced fairly.  Come see for yourself!

We offer quality merchandise, including furniture, antiques, books, artwork, seasonal items, and crafts. We also sell men’s and women’s clothing, jewelry, household and home decor items and linens, all at affordable prices.

Great reputation, quality merchandise and friendly member volunteers!
