With new merchandise
every week, it's never
the same place twice!



Drop off as charitable donations your goodies you know longer need so others can use them, and perhaps pick up some others at a great price while you're here, if it's Saturday.


We accept donations on Monday, Thursday, and Saturday mornings from 9:00 to 11:30 am at Kiwanis Thrift Sale Downtown (also called the Kiwanis Activity Center), 200 S. First Street, Ann Arbor at the dock entrance on Washington Street (see maps).


We accept donations on Friday and Saturday from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm at the new Kiwanis Thrift Sale West, 100 N. Staebler Rd at Jackson Rd (1 mile West of Zeeb, across from Menards) (see maps). This is the preferred place for furniture donations, because this is where it will later be sold.


On Easter, Memorial Day, July 4, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year holiday weeks, though Sale is closed on Saturday, we still accept drop off donations at the Kiwanis Thrift Sale Downtown, except for the actual day of the holiday.  For example, we accept donations on the Saturday of Easter (always Sunday) but not Memorial Day (always Monday). The Thrift Sale Downtown and Thrift Sale West are open Labor Day Saturday (Welcome Students) and we accept donations on Labor Day. (See calendar)


We also sell on eBay special items that are attractive to a national audience and sell on eBay for more than $40. Click AAK on EBay for information.

Saturday purchases at the Sale can be temporarily left in the dock area while a customer continues shopping or goes for a pick up vehicle. All purchases must be picked up by Saturday noon, when dock area closes.


There are items in high demand by our Sale customers, so we particularly request their donation.  There are other items customers will not buy, so we cannot accept them. Please do not bring us leftovers from garage, yard, church, and neighborhood sales. What won't sell there won't sell here. All items must be in good, saleable condition.

Items we cannot accept may be donated to Salvation Army at 1621 S. State, St. Vincent de Paul at 1001 Broadway, or the Recycling Center on South Industrial, all in Ann Arbor.
