This month has been so hectic but also so rewarding! We have been blessed with so many donations and are trying to find places to put things until we have time to look at, clean and price them. Because of this, donations will not be accepted until January 6th. We will be closed December 23 through December 31 and reopen again on January 6th.
December 9th and 10th - 50% off all jewelry
December 16th and 17th - 50% off all Christmas items
SECOND CHANCES THRIFT SHOP HOURS - Fridays from 3:00 pm to 8:00 pm and Saturdays from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm.
There is something for everyone--clothes for women, men, and children,
books, jewelry, many, many housewares, toys, a card shop, a section
with new items, and much more.
Most clothes are $1.00 an item or $5.00 for a bag. Great deal if you choose more that 5 items and they fit in the bag! There are some better brand and new clothes that are priced.

WHO WE SUPPORT
NOTHING IS WASTED! When items can no longer stay
in the store, we have a list of places and persons to whom they can be
donated . We support Sunset Gap, a Community Center in Cosby, TN and Midnight Run, a mission to the homeless out of Dobbs Ferry, NY, The Pregnancy Center
in Columbia, PA, Lancaster County Mental Health Court, Mount Joy
Helping Services, FAITH Homes of Donegal, Mount Joy Food Bank, Mount Joy Furniture Bank, NGA (Clothing Charity), Donegal School District, Military Order of the Purple Heart, Domestic Violence Center of Lancaster (Div. of CAP). We also donate locally
to churches in
the area, and to local families when we are notified of a special need.
In the last few months, we helped the Kiwanis Clubs in the area collect shoes and donated 1600 to the drive.
We have a RADA
display in the store. RADA is the stainless steel cutlery that
has been popular for years and sold in churches as fundraisers.
There are many items for you to look at and some are in stock so you
can buy them right away. For others, we'll put in your order and notify you when it comes in. The turnaround time is
usually about two weeks.
