We now have an email specifically for donation pictures;



All kinds of household items including dishes, small appliances, and just about any kind of utensil you can use in the kitchen.

BOOKS, RECORDS, CD's, DVD's, VHS's, etc.

All of our books, records, cd's, etc. are sorted by genre, and separated for adults, children, etc.  We have a huge collection and two very dedicated volunteers work to keep it all organized.


We sell every kind of clothing you could want.  We always have long and short sleeve shirts, long pants, shoe, suits, dresses and skirts. In the summer we have racks of capris, summer tops, and swim suits.  In the winter we bring out the ski wear, winter coats, jackets, and sweaters.


Everything from blankets, sheets, pillows, table cloths, napkins, and placemats.


Lots of great toys get donated from tinker toys, dolls, stuffed animals, electronic toys, models, puzzles, etc.  Our craft area is full of all kinds of supplies, fabric, needlepoint, yarn, and more!


We get great donations of all kinds of furniture for every room in the house, along with lamps, pictures, and other small accessories.  We regularly pick up items after estate sales and this is a reason our furniture inventory is always full.


We also carry a wide variety of other items such as Electronics, Pet and Garden Supplies, Jewelry, Purses, Scarves, and more!


We accept almost everything as long as it is in good resalable condition.  By law we cannot accept bed pillows and mattresses.  We also do not accept large appliances and console tv's. 

We must be very selective on accepting children's products and child care articles in order to stay in compliance with CPSC (Consumer Product Safety Commission) laws. Sorry, we cannot accept infant/children furniture; strollers, cribs, high chairs, carseats, etc.

We will pick up donations on occasion.  It takes time, money, and labor on our part to offer this service, so we can only do so if the donations are substantial enough to make it worthwhile for our store.

Large furniture items must be on the first floor with few stairs involved for safety reasons. We hope that you understand.

There is a $50.00 fee for deliveries within the immediate Grass Valley and Nevada City area.  Furniture deliveries cannot include any stairs, again for safety reasons.

Stop in and say hi to our Nifty permanent residents... Lola and Aurora!


Patches came to live with us just after we opened our doors in 2013. Aurora came to us from the shelter with the intention of finding her own forever home but both cats bonded and quickly became the best of friends, so we kept her too! 

After Patches crossed over The Rainbow Bridge Aurora clearly needed a new companion. Meet Lola!
