Thrift Shoppe


Our Second Tyme Around Shoppe located on Downey Avenue in downtown Downey since 1966, is the major continuous fundraising activity of the chapter. It is staffed solely by volunteer members of Assistance League Downey on a year-round schedule.

45The thrift shoppe is a thriving business and its income contributes greatly to the annual operating budget.  This is a great place to find missing china pieces, holiday decorations, craft items, kitchen accessories, and even furniture.  We do stay open one night a year for special year-end Holiday shopping event.  Donations come in weekly and we get them out as soon as they are inspected and priced.  You never know what treasure will come through the door so visit us often.

50Donations of gently-used clothing, shoes, accessories, jewelry, linens, books, collectibles, small household items and furniture can be made during shop hours, preferably through the back entrance.  Please do not leave donations outside the doors during the times we are closed.  Donations are tax deductible and receipts are available upon request.  Please call (562) 869-0232 for more information
