Donation Guidelines

We are a resale (not consignment) shop. Donations are deeply appreciated. Please bring your very gently used items to the Thrift & Vintage Shop.  We would prefer that you NOT give us items that have been loved to the point of retirement, that need to be run through a car wash, that have holes or are broken, or would make your great-grandma go “tsk tsk.”

We provide a receipt for you and your tax preparer.
