We need your help keeping our shelves stocked. As we have very limited space we have to be selective as to the items we can accept. All items should be clean and complete. We are looking for gently used clothing (all sizes men and women), shoes and purses, jewelry, kitchen items, dishes (preferably in sets of four or more), pet items (toys, dishes, beds, coats, collars, leashes), bedding (new or gently used), tools, gardening items, collectibles and anything unique that would have resale value. We are also looking for small wood furniture (side tables, dressers, book shelves, chairs) that are in good condition.

Items we cannot accept are upholstered furniture, coffee tables, electronics, vacuums, old kitchen appliances, odd glasses and dinnerware, drapery, light fixtures, exercise equipment, used litter boxes and generally items that are in poor shape. We also cannot take Christmas items year round. Please consider that it costs us both in time and money to dispose of items that we cannot sell.

Please contact the Store @ 250-655-0738 if you have questions about donations. Items can be dropped off on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays between 12:00 & 4:00 p.m.

Tax receipts are offered for quality donations in kind and monetary donations.

Thank you for your support!
