Shop with Confidence
Hearts Thrift Shop provides quality clothing, accessories, shoes, and household items at affordable prices. Located on Tonawanda Street in Buffalo, Hearts Thrift Shop is in a poverty stricken part of the city where residents do not have transportation to the suburbs to shop in malls. When shoppers walk through the front doors, they are welcomed into a relaxing environment with soothing Christian music and helpful Hearts team members.
Hearts Thrift Shop is a secondhand store of convenience for everyone. Quality clothes and accessories are just the beginning - find personal care items, toiletries, and jewelry for every occasion. Explore beyond the main room to the kids’ and men’s rooms, where you will find bargains on quality clothing for the whole family, as well as toys, housewares, games, and free books.
After expenses, all proceeds from Hearts Thrift Shop are used to support the operation of our Mobile Soup Kitchen and our Hearts Harvest Pantry and Cafe, located just across the street from the thrift store. All operations are designed to help meet the needs of individuals and families in the local community.
