Thrift Shop Donations
Due to COVID-19 safety and health concerns, we are NOT ACCEPTING DONATIONS AT THIS TIME, but will be in the near future. All treasures currently available for sale have been safely stored in the shop or our warehouse since March. Come back to this site for updates on how and when we will be accepting donations. In the meantime, we have updated our “Do not accept list” (Click here for the list). As you gather items for future donations, please read this list and bring only accepted items to the shop when the time comes.
Our “unique boutique” is where you can find that perfect treasure!
A gentleman came into the shop. He purchased a couple of cookie sheets and after talking to the staff he promised that he would bake some cookies for them. Sure enough, a few days later he came in with a plate of cookies. We chatted again about baking. He bought a couple of mini-muffin pans and told us a couple of recipes we could use with the mini-pans.
