The Abby’s House Thrift Shop serves as a source of income to support the mission of Abby’s House. Full of quality clothing, accessories, home goods, and bargain-priced cosmetics, we encourage you to visit the store, not only to donate items, but to also add some great pieces to your wardrobe!

In addition, the Thrift Shop serves as a community resource for homeless and low-income women in need of free clothing and necessities. To learn more about obtaining a Thrift Shop voucher, please visit our advocacy page.
