“The AL Thrift Shop of Bellingham, WA is amazing! There is always something one can find and that is needed, useful, or wanted – furnitures, clothes, glasswares, cookwares, lamps, artworks – at too good to be true prices! What is wonderful about this shop is that everything comes from donation (items, management, staff, etc) and proceeds go back to the society.
Salute to all the AL of Bellingham ladies who volunteer passionately to manage the store 6 days a week (including all the behind the scene events from donation acceptance, display preparation, and warehousing). Congratulations on your anniversary! May you continue to make meaningful difference in the lives of others! Cheers!
To my FB friends who are believers and practitioners of service beyond self, this group is worth liking, commenting, and sharing!”

We Sell Items on Craigslist & eBay
To find us on Craigslist:
Go to Craigslist.org, select Bellingham listings, then click the “for sale” listings; in the search box put the words “AL Thrift” and our current ads will come up.
Did you know we ALSO have an eBay presence?
eBay auction items are NOT located in our shop here at 2817 Meridian; they’re located off site until the listings are completed. You are most welcome to bid on our eBay listings, and if you win an auction or purchase a “buy it now” item from us, you pay no shipping cost if you can come to the shop to pick up the item rather than having it mailed.
To find our eBay listings online:
On eBay.com at the far right upper corner, next to the big “search” word, there is the word “advanced” in smaller letters. Click that link. That brings up a page of search options. In the left column click the link under “find items” where it says “by seller”. Then in the box where you enter “seller’s ID”, enter the name “alb_thriftshop”. (That’s an “underscore” between the alb and thriftshop). We list interesting items on eBay almost every day!
