A deep selection of used books and a choose-your-own-charity donations policy make this Mission district thrift shop stand out. – In Short
Lovers of kitsch sift through cast-off art work and old-school kitchenware while vinyl aficionados flip through boxes of old records at this secondhand shop. Shelves lined with a rotating array of well-loved fiction and non-fiction volumes, as well as bargains on furniture, clothing, household items and bric-a-brac tempt a steady stream of regular customers. At drop-off, donators may select one of over 200 local organizations to benefit from the sale of their goods.

Donation is easy – I've never shopped here, but they do make donating very easy. You drive around to the alley on the side of the building, hand the friendy people your stuff, and they let you look through a notebook listing hundreds of worthy charities. When you choose one, the proceeds from your things will go to that charity. If you've estimated the value of your stuff, they'll give you a receipt that you can use at tax time. I love that they work with so many groups, unlike the Salvation Army, whose Christian agenda often puts me off.

Surly Help Overpriced Merchandise – Try to get some assistance in that store without attitude. This is a charity shop...isn't it? I was surprised by the surlyness of the help. Acted like they were doing me a favor. These days there's nothing they have that you can't get for less on eBay or Ross Department stores. I almost bought an old toy there for $26. It was Mr Potato Head's friend Oscar The Orange. I searched eBay and got one for $5. Just because it's old doesn't mean it has to be expensive. I never ran into that attitude in Seattle and found lots of bargains there. Also, a friend of mine bought a pair of boots there for $30. An employee was on line in front of her with almost the same exact boots and was charged 50 cents. Donate your stuff to Goodwill and shop elsewhere.
