All-new Merchandise Is at the Thrift Shop Now!

Stop in to see all our new fall and winter clothing and other items!


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!



The Thrift Shop is open from noon to 6 PM every Tuesday.

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!




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!!!

The shop is conveniently located in downtown Ypsilanti. All items sold are 100% quality donations. All staff is volunteer.
Please note: We only accept cash.

The Thrift Shop of Ypsilanti is open from 10:00am-3:45pm Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday; 12:00 noon to 6:00pm on Tuesdays, and on Saturdays from 10:00am-1:00pm.
