Welcome to the Thrift Shop of Ypsilanti!

Come visit the Thrift Shop for a great selection of fall merchandise!!!

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.

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!
