For more than forty years the Auxiliary Thrift Store has been a fixture in Ladner, providing the stuff of life to residents and visitors to Delta. Daily, dedicated volunteers sort, price, display and sell gently used items of household, clothing and furniture donated mindfully by a generous community. On any given day you might find a pair of teak and leather chairs, an Alex Colville print, a faux fur coat, a Jimmy Choo purse, a vintage LP, a book or a raku pottery vase with crackle glaze. Treasures are there to be found on a daily basis as well as reasonably priced items for ordinary household needs. For many of our customers, it’s all about the thrill of the chase for that unique item. Plus they are supporting our mission as all proceeds go to patient care and comfort and leading edge medical equipment for Delta Hospital.
Starting out with just one small store, The Thrift Store operation has expanded over the years and now offers three separate stores, conveniently located side by side; one for household items, toys, puzzles and games, records, CD’s and books. A second larger space specializes in clothing, linens, crafts, shoes, purses and hats for men, women, teens and children. In addition, in its newest large bright and airy space, the Thrift Store displays furniture, lamps, paintings and electrical, pet and hardware items.
The newest space is also the area where the popular Collectible Sales are offered every six weeks bringing customers from all over the lower mainland and beyond.
As well every year this space is transformed into a Christmas Wonderland for six weeks, offering trees, lights, wreaths and garlands, candles, cards, seasonal linens, dishes and decorations of every description.
The Delta Auxiliary Thrift Store serves the community, supports healthcare at our hospital and provides friendship and a chance to share a smile and make a difference for our more than 210 volunteers who give approximately 5,400 hours monthly.
