Donating Items to ReTails

We accept donations Monday through Saturday from 9 am – 5 pm and Sunday from 12 pm – 6 pm.

ReTails Thrift Shop gratefully accepts donations of most gently-used clothing, furniture, and household items.


Items that ReTails CANNOT accept.

At times, our donation supply exceeds demand for certain categories of merchandise. When we have surplus, we either donate it to local charities or sell it for export to countries with short supply.  We always try to ensure that usable surplus merchandise goes to people who need it (or in the case of blankets and towels to animals that need it!).

Here’s a list of items that we CANNOT accept:

  • Baby equipment including car seats, strollers, and cribs
  • Board games & puzzles with missing or broken pieces
  • Furniture that is broken, damaged, and/or obsolete
  • Metal desks and/or overly large desks
  • Bed pillows (non-decorative) & mattresses
  • Non-working electronics
  • Computers, monitors, fax machines, & printers
  • Obsolete televisions
  • Gas powered equipment
  • Gas grills
  • Flammable liquids & poisonous chemicals
  • Items and books that are mildewed or musty
