Cvan's Cool Used Stuff
I love Cvan's. Always something interesting to see here and there's usually at least one "fantastic buy" when I go. Haven't been much because dressing rooms are closed and I'm a person who MUST try on garments before buying to ensure proper fit. I also donate here too because the cause is a necessary one.
I have gone to cvans for many years, and Ive recommended it to anyone who would listen. The store is always clean and staff is always polite. However, I recently brought in a donation and went inside the store to shop. When I came out, I saw staff/volunteers throw away almost the entirety of my donation. It included a nice glassware set, a bag with a HARDCOVER BOOK SET in great condition (?), among many other things. These are items I thought of selling, but decided their donation would benefit the battered womens shelter more. Their dumpster was almost full of books in good condition (some much better than what was on their shelves inside), and many more great quality items. I understand your store may receive a large amount of donations, but you need to create a system where, if you have an influx of items, you are at least attempting to donate those items again. I would have happily taken back those rejected items to donate to schools or children who dont have books, clothes, etc. Its incredibly disappointing that all my donations over the years could have simply ended up in the dumpster, despite how truly nice some of the items were. This is a SMALL number of the books I pulled from their trash (NOT from my donation - this came from someone else).

I Cvan's! I always walk away with a few articles of clothing that are just right for me! They have a pretty good selection and I like how it's organized. The dressing rooms were closed because of the CV-19 stuff, but they had a big mirror up front by the window where I could try something on over my clothes to see how they looked on me. It really helped me decide and a the comments from a lady watching me try on a particular blouse helped me decide too.
So Im a thrift store junkie, and I just wanna say this place is amazing!!!! Great selection, awesome staff, and a good cause.
Cute little store and good prices. Friendly staff. We will be regulars.
