Welcome to thrift center,

Our team has been working hard to ensure you the most enjoyable thrift store experience, providing the widest resale selection and the best values possible.
Thrift Center is proud to be locally owned and operated by United Cerebral Palsy of the North Bay. When you shop and donate at Thrift Center stores in Fairfield and Santa Cruz, you find amazing treasures while helping a trusted local charity. And, by reusing quality clothing and household items, you help our planet, too!
Every day we sort through more than 10,000 items, pricing and displaying the very best quality and styles for you and your family. If you haven’t shopped with us recently, please give us a try soon. We’ve made lots of improvements based on your input, and we have a renewed passion to be the very best thrift store in our community. And, if we’re one of your favorite thrift stores already, please come back often to see the thousands of new pre-owned items we have in store for you every single day!
It’s all about selection. We know in order to be your favorite thrift store we need to make sure our stores are full of fresh, one-of-a-kind treasures and bargains. We work hard every day at each of our stores to produce the best resale selection in the Bay Area.
We keep track of how long our merchandise has been on the sales floor by using different colored price tags that denote when each item was put out for sale. Most of our items sell during the first week. To make room for newly arriving treasures, we remove the older items from the sales floor. These items are recycled in a variety of ways; reused and re-purposed here in the U.S., as well as other countries, where they will be appreciated and put back to use.
Our everyday prices are great deals, but we also have additional ways to help you save even more money:
Weekly Color Tag Discount
We discount the color tag that’s been on the sales floor for 4 weeks. This color tag is 50% off starting Monday, and through the following Saturday. On Sunday, items featuring this oldest tag are only 99¢! After this, the items are recycled to make room for even more new merchandise.
Senior, Military and Student Discount Days
Every Monday senior citizens 55 years of age and over save 50% on all color tags except our current and specially marked tags. Visit each store for additional discount days you may qualify for.
