Cheap Chickadee Thrift Store

Cheap Chickadee exteriorOur very own thrift store, the Cheap Chickadee, is right next door to our Center and your “go-to” source for deep discounts on clothing, household goods, and all kinds of curiosities!  Stop by and check it out.  We just might have that special item you’ve been seeking.  We gratefully accept donations that are clean and in good working order during store hours. Please scroll to the bottom if this page to see what items we are able to accept. All sales benefit the SESSC.

We have a monthly sale requiring items be put in paper bags to determine the price and Seattle stores are no longer giving paper bags!!!  If you have some, we could use a donation!  Contact Kate at (206) 722-0317.
