Grace Thrift Center
Our thrift store provides good quality gently-used clothing at very low prices, including wedding dresses, formal dresses, and outfits for job interviews.
As furniture is donated we provide it at very low cost to our customers and often free to those with open DCFS cases that need furniture in order to keep their children.
Pots and pans, cooking utensils, plates, eating utensils, cups and glasses, electronics and other items are available in our thrift store.
