Cvan's Cool Used Stuff
Great place for just about anything. One of my main stops for books. 80% of the store is women's clothing. Not 10% men's so not a lot of shopping for guys but I usually find a shirt or two. It's all donation based and the donations and purchases support women's domestic violence outreach in case you've never shipped here before. I usually stop in several times a year. Current hours close at 4 or 5pm so not open as late as other area thrift stores. Closed on Sundays too
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.
Dropped in here out of curiosity when driving by. This is a great thrift shop. All of the profits benefit battered women shelters. The prices are not out of control, women's tops were $3.99 as were handbags. They also had some children's clothing, and home decor items.
Great selection, lots of name brands. Average-size store packs a wallop! Well-organized and well-stocked. Average prices, very clean, lots of unique items.
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).
