Celebrating Our 75th Anniversary at the Ypsi Fourth Parade!

What better way to celebrate our 75 years of support for local charities than participating in the oldest continuous Fourth of July parade in Michigan? The parade has been going on even longer than the Thrift Shop! We had a wonderful time!  Thanks to everyone who helped make this possible.

Special thanks to John Allesee of Saline, member of the Detroit Area Corvair Club, for driving his classic Corvair station wagon for us!



The Thrift Shop is now open until 6 PM on Tuesdays in support of the Downtown Farmers Market, which is right next door. Shop the Farmers’ Market for great produce and the Thrift Shop for great values! 



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!!
