Spring is finally here, and while you’re cleaning and clearing out, why not spruce up your living space with some fresh new art pieces that you can actually afford! Make us a stop on your art walk and pick up some great art deals!

As always, all profits go to local charities. 

And please note that we will be open until 8 PM on April 5 and all First Fridays this year!


Come to the thrift shop where you’ll find amazing deals every day!! Your donations and your purchases help others in your community, for which we say thank you!


We accept only cash for purchases.  Here’s why.

Customers sometimes ask us why we don’t accept credit cards. The answer is simple: Accepting credit cards costs money. 

We would rather donate ALL the money from our sales to the charities we support, instead of “donating” two percent to the banks. If we accepted credit cards, last year we would have paid the banks about $1,000.


So cash only, please.  And no bills bigger than $20.

Thank you!


There are 720 hours in the average month.

Can you donate 3 ½ of those to help your community?

As a nonprofit resale shop that supports the community, we donate our profits to numerous local charities, and we’re able to provide that support because all the work at the shop is done by volunteers.  We are busier than ever, and we could use more help.  Would you like to join us? 

You have to commit to working just 3 ½ hours each month That’s not a lot of time, but the results are huge.  Last year we were able to donate about $50,000, thanks to our volunteers.

We’ll train you in our procedures.  The work is rewarding, and we even have fun doing it!  If you’d like to join us, call the shop at 734-483-1226 and leave your name and phone number, and our volunteer coordinator will get back to you.  You can also stop in during regular business hours and fill out an application. 

M W Th  F 10 AM to 3:45 PM (First Fridays until 8 PM)

Tuesdays Noon to 6 PM

Saturdays 10 AM to 1:00 PM
