WE ARE ACCEPTING DONATIONS RELATED TO GARDENING FOR MAY FIRST FRIDAY!
It’s that time of year—or will be soon—when we love to get outside, dig in the dirt, and plant flowers and vegetables!
For our First Friday Event on May 4, gardening is our theme.
We would love to have donations related to gardening for that event—gardening tools and implements, flower pots, porch pots,garden gnomes and other decorations, flower vases, table linens or dish towels or aprons with a garden theme, plates or glassware, gardening gloves and hats—anything that has to do with gardening. Tools and the like don’t have to be in perfect condition, but they do have to be usable.
You can drop off donations at the shop during regular hours (M-F 10 AM to 3:45 PM, Saturday 10 AM to 1 PM). There is a loading zone spot right in front of the shop and free parking across the street. Thank you!
And thanks to all of you who donated art for our April First Friday event!

Want to help your community? We’re looking for volunteers!
We have been so busy during the past year that we’re looking for new volunteers to join us in our efforts to help people in need in our community. You can participate in two ways.
- Become a member, where you commit to 3 ½ hours of work each month—a shift in the sales room or in the marking room. You will be trained (it’s easy!) in whichever of those tasks you choose.
- Volunteer to do a particular task—tidying up the sales floor, helping sort donations and place them in the shop, etc.—in whatever time you can spare.
We are also looking for someone who can help us with our Web site. Got skills? We sure could use them!
You can pick up a volunteer application at the shop, 14 S. Washington in downtown Ypsi, during regular business hours, or call the shop (734-483-1226) and leave a message. Our volunteer coordinator will be happy to get back to you.
The Thrift Shop is now officially registered with Kroger Community Rewards! You can register your Kroger Plus card online or by calling the number included in the directions and choosing the Ypsilanti Thrift Shop as your designated charity. Once you’ve completed the process, 3.5% of every purchase you make at Kroger will be placed in the Thrift Shop account. It’s completely free, and a wonderful way to help our community!! Click on the ‘News” tab above for full details and directions!
NEW ITEMS ADDED DAILY!!
We have a large selection of clothing to fit all ages and sizes! Also household items, kitchenware, linens, books, music, jewelry, shoes, hats, picture frames, wall art, fabric, crafts, toys, and holiday decorations!!!
