The church run thrifts, Opportunity House, and Habitat are the only ones that are truly non-profit. Everyone else lives off the profits.
What do the churches do with the money from thrifts?

Check out the Habitat for Humanity thrift shop on 11E just west of the Summer st overpass. High quality clothes at VERY reasonable prices. I would pay twice what they ask and still feel I got a great deal. They have many other household items, building supplies and furniture as well. The people are pleasant and helpful.
last time I was in there... the place was a dump and they had clothes for seniors not worth the money either... if the white headed woman is still running it.. its still a joke. I have been to the new one only once. don't plan on goin back. The old one wasn't so bad but some things was still over priced.

All thrift shops and goodwill stores employees go through all the stuff and take what they want for themselves and their families before it's put on the floor for sale. That's why I never take any of my things there, I just find people who want it or need it and give it to them myself. That way it gets into the proper hands.

I started doing the same after donating some really nice condition / great quality items wherein I unloaded my car in drizzling rain while employees smoked & didn't even say thank you. I even got fussed at because my items were in really nice plastic bins (which they "made me" unload) because they didn't want them LOL! So, they won't be getting anymore of my things to sift through before the needy. It was a completely different experience when I took like new clothing & household items other places. I'm known for giving things away at my yard sales if I like the person who is interested.:)

I took a coffee table there one time in about 1998 (they were still in the dollar general market shopping center then). The table had a loose leg on it. All it need was a little tape around the screw to tighten it up a little. They refused it. Said they do not take anything that has to be repaired. I took all of my items back and drove to the opportunity house. They were very courteous and had no issue with fixing the leg. Haven't been to a goodwill since.
