All items in the shop are donated by the public. Annual sales at Turnstyle for fiscal year ending June 2019 totaled approximately $207,000.

Turnstyle, located at 60 North B Street in downtown San Mateo, has been operating in the same location for over 40 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.
