BOUTIQUE THRIFTING WITH A PURPOSE
The Thrifty Kitty is a vibrant space for gently used clothing, jewelry, artwork, books and household items. You'll also find plants and unique gift items that are gentle to our environment.
Net proceeds from sales at The Thrifty Kitty support Friends of the Alameda Animal Shelter (FAAS) the animal shelter for Alameda. FAAS receives nearly 1,000 lost, abandoned, and surrendered animals a year, and saves 96% through innovative programs, community partnerships, and support from a passionate base of volunteers and donors.
Meet our new Store Manager, Madden. Originally from Tennessee, Madden came to the Bay Area via Austin, Portland, Providence, and Oakland -- thrifting all the way. He loves cats, too, so a perfect match for The Kitty. Drop by and say hello.
You'll find Madden in the store most days, working closely with Assistant Manager, Willette, and associates, Frances and Nina.
The perfect gift for any occasion for every bargain hunter and thrift store shopper -- The gift of thrift.
Shopping at The Thrifty Kitty, you keep discarded items out of landfills and help animals in need.
Browse new and gently used clothes, fashion accessories, jewelry, housewares, pet items, framed art, home décor, collectibles, gifts, and other thoughtfully curated treasures. You'll get the feel of boutique shopping, with the added benefit of knowing your purchase helps care for animals and gives found treasures an extended life.
New items come in every day, and go out just about as fast. We don't hold items or sell on line, so if you see something -- buy it! You'll find great prices, and a friendly staff.
Of course, we're pet friendly, so stop by with your pal and become a part of our thrifting community. Treats for pets; treasures for their pals.
Follow us on social media to keep up-to-date on new items, events and programs.
We're always looking for exciting new items, so the next time you need to re-home a well-loved treasure, please consider The Thrifty Kitty! We make it easy for you with on-line appointments and parking lot drop-off.
We've added live plants to our inventory of garden and home accessories, and a curated collection of small furnishings, lighting, and objects d'art to create complete home environments. Your imagination is your only limitation -- find a plant, then find the perfect place for it. Just think -- you'll be re-homing a cast-off AND adding beauty and character to your home.
Move over, Amazon. Thrifty Kitty's book section is regularly updated to include Amazon best sellers using the same criteria of title requests. Up until recently arranged by colors of the rainbow, but we went to the alphabetized system for easier search. And at $4 for a hardcover best seller including cookbooks, $3 for paperbacks and kids' books, you can't beat the prices. Puzzles and games for the whole family.
We are fortunate to have many donors who choose The Thrifty Kitty to donate their fine art, collectibles, jewelry and accessories. From Italian glassware to "ugly pottery," whimsical frogs to music boxes, you'll often find a treasure someone has passed along for a good cause.
