Thrifters’ Paradise: Volunteering and Donations


A small store with a BIG HEART! We are thrilled to report that Thrifters’ Paradise is thriving under the volunteer management of our Thrift Store Liaison Chairperson Maureen Carter and her fabulous team of volunteers. Our volunteers are amazing, dedicated and an inspiration to work with.

The store is a bustling enterprise, packed with surprises and treasures at great bargain prices. We have been very well received in the shopping community of downtown Langley, continually receiving praise for our well organized, attractive displays, and clean, friendly, environment!


Do you enjoy the retail environment and have a few or many hours to spare?  Why not join our team of energetic and friendly volunteers!

There are many opportunities for volunteering! There are 2 shifts each day, Monday to Saturday and we are looking for volunteers to take a couple full or part-time shifts per week. The work involves sorting, pricing, and preparing merchandise for display as well as tidying up shelves and cashiering. We anticipate an even greater need for helpers during the summer months when some of our regular volunteers will go on holidays or have special days planned with their families.

We are grateful for whatever time you can give and would love to welcome you to our volunteer team! The store is a fun place to be with a friendly and hospitable atmosphere. Contact us for more info or to sign up today!


We accept donations during regular store hours and can arrange pick up if necessary. Our loyal customers are continually looking for the high quality items we have become known for. Fashionable ladies clothing, jewelry, accessories, home décor, and children’s wear are our top sellers! Popular too are books, dishes, kitchen and small appliances, CD’s and DVD’s. We are unable to take large furniture, electronics, baby mattresses, cribs, playpens, highchairs, or car seats. Please see below for a broader list of  items we cannot accept.

We go through a huge quantity of stock and count on you to keep our inventory new, fresh and exciting! All funds raised through Thrifters’ Paradise support the programs of Domestic Abuse Services.
