Visit Turnstyle Thrift Shop

Owned and operated solely by member volunteers of Assistance League of San Mateo County, and having no paid staff, Turnstyle Thrift Shop is the primary means of funding our philanthropic programs. All items in the shop are donated by the public. Annual sales at Turnstyle for fiscal year ending June 2021 totaled approximately $68,300. Our sales were greatly reduced due to shop closures resulting from the Covid pandemic.

Turnstyle, located at 60 North B Street in downtown San Mateo, has been operating for 60 years. Customers have come to rely on us for “gently used” merchandise, including men’s, women’s, and children’s clothing, household items, jewelry and small furniture pieces at very affordable prices.
