The Haven Thrift Store

The Haven Thrift Store is an upscale thrift shop established to supplement income to operate The Haven for Children, Inc. The shop is operated and managed by an all-volunteer group of Haven Guild members. All monies less rent, utilities, and supplies are donated to support the residential homes of The Haven. All merchandise for sale is donated by individuals and businesses and is tax deductible for the donor. For questions please call 321-777-6606

The first store, The Lamb Shoppe opened in October 1999 as a result of the generosity of a friend of the Haven, Myra Igo Haley who donated the start-up funds. The Haven Guild President at that time, Carole Burke, along with many of the guild members worked tirelessly to set up and open the Shoppe on South Patrick Drive in Indian Harbour Beach.  By 2003 donations exceeded floor space and the Lamb Shoppe was moved just up the road to its present location: 1765 South Patrick Drive.

If You Want To Donate

Items donated must be clean and in working order. We ask that donations not be left on the porch when the shop is not open.

All items should be gently worn or used, have all parts included, and be in working condition. If it’s something you would use, then someone else might buy it. Items that are soiled, torn, or incomplete are not put out for sale and, therefore, are better recycled by the donor than donated to us for disposal.
