We are a local, family owned business that purchases only the highest quality items directly at our stores from local residents keeping money in our communities, allows our prices stay far lower, and recycles thousands of pounds of used goods rather than filling local landfills.

Please Note: Clothing must be clean, and folded. Nothing on Hangers. All other items must be clean, safe, working and in ready to sell condition. We reserve the right to reject any merchandise based on condition, current inventory levels and past experience.


 Thrift Bargains is better than a consignment shop where you have to wait until your items sell to get paid – and that’s if they sell at all! The difference with Thrift Bargains is not only great quality, like-new items to purchase, but CASH On-the-Spot  or in store credit for your “gently-used” items you bring in to sell.


We pay15 cents per pound cash or 30 cents per pound store credit for all types of clothing and merchandise. Large items such as furniture are individually evaluated.


We absolutely appreciate the many great donations we receive from people who want to see their things re-used and recycled by someone locally.

These donations are vital to our mission for FAR LOWER Prices.

 And Sometimes No.... Our commitment is to bring the best quality items to the communities we serve . Unfortunately, we may have to ask you to leave with any items we feel we can not sell, even if you say its a free "donation".


We only pay for merchandise that is clean, washed, folded, sorted and ALWAYS stored indoors. Anything broken, damaged, dirty or with excessive wear is never accepted. We have no drivers picking up bags of clothing at individual homes left out in the rain or snow. No merchandise is ever collected from outdoor donations bins that often get wet and have rubbish mixed in with clothing. Any donated items failing to meet our strict criteria for condition are always recycled.
