What do our customers say?

"Love this little thrift store. I stop in at least 2 times a week and always find cute things and the great thing is all the money goes towards food for the community."

"I shopped at Common Things Thrift Store for the first time. What a lovely, lovely store. Love their vision through Common Heart of the community coming together to serve those in need. PTL!!!"

"I went today for the first time and I was impressed with the quality and layout of the store. Everything was organized. The volunteers were super friendly. This was my first visit to the store but it won't be my last!"

"I donate and my granddaughter volunteers. I usually end up spending more than I intend when I shop there. I always find interesting items to choose from. The store is clean and everyone is so nice. I am a thrift shop shopper and this is a favorite."
