The St. Vincent de Paul Society is a charitable organization affiliated with the Catholic Church.
All proceeds from the sale of goods at their stores go to assist the poor through programs run by the Society.

The store nearest to me is in a failed Rite Aid location.  It's on a busy state highway and appears to do a lot of business.  I bought a nearly mint-condition AIWA boombox here (manufacture date November, 1988) for FOUR BUCKS!  I bought a slightly used bowling ball for a buck and a half.  A very nice lamp for $4 (had to replace the switch, so $6.50 total investment).  My daughter bought
a gorgeous white sofa which had been professionally cleaned for $125.00.   Good deals!

I used to volunteer at a St. Vincent de Paul thrift store in my junior year of high school.

There used to be one near me in Northeast Philly, used to be an acme in the 50s. Closed a few years ago, just now it looks like it is becoming something, I don't know what yet though, got some good buys there since they seemed to take anything.

Until our resident ShopKo expert ;-) started this topic I wasn't aware that there was a St. Vincent de Paul Thrift Store. All I knew of was the organization that helps the homeless and needy.

I was stunned to see my local St. Vincent DePaul Store is now open on Sunday.
The church had always made a very big deal about not having them open on the Sabbath.

Interesting...St Vincent de Paul has two stores in the Tampa Bay area....one is on Nebraska Ave and the other is in Ruskin. I'm not sure what the stores were before, both are small...
