Helping veterans and people in crisis in our East Valley Community


Who we are: The Desert Thrift Shop is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization founded in 2016 to help families in the East Valley who are in need. In 2018, we entered a partnership with the Purple Heart Foundation to help veterans. Together we help veterans and others in our community who are in crisis. At the Purple Heart Desert Thrift Shop we pride ourselves on offering clean merchandise at reasonable prices in a friendly, customer-oriented environment. All items are donated by individuals and businesses. Our volunteers donate their time and talent to help provide our customers with an excellent shopping experience.

Our Store: We feature a large furniture showroom with living room, bedroom, office furniture and more, as well as framed artwork and mirrors, and home fashion accessories including lamps, decorative throw pillows and silk floral arrangements. Shopping areas also include clothing, shoes, fashion accessories; sporting goods and exercise equipment; home health care equipment; household goods, small appliances and electronics; books, vinyl records, audio books, CDs, VHS tapes, and DVDs; crafts; and jewelry. Our Silent Auction offers an ever-changing inventory of collectibles and unique items from antique to mid-century modern to retro. And, there is no charge or deposit for a bidder number or to bid.
