Our Mission


Serve Our Community

Our bargain prices help those who couldn't otherwise afford to buy clothing or items, as well as local resellers and thrifting enthusiasts.


Bring back the five and dime

In today's economy, prices on almost everything have risen. We want to bring back the old spirit of thrifting & charity.


Support abuse survivors

A portion of proceeds goes to the Lumina Alliance to help survivors of sexual assault and domestic violence (IPV), moving towards a Brighter Side.
