Surplus Thrift Stores & More - Lake Wales Care Center

Surplus Thrift Stores

Open to the general public, our Lake Wales and Dundee Thrift Stores, help families stretch their income.

Our thrift stores rely on people like you to donate usable goods for resale. Your charitable donations help us to provide for those in need and fund our outreach programs.

By donating usable items like clothing, furniture, dishes and more, you can keep items out of the landfills and help create a greener way of life for everyone. By shopping at our thrift stores, you help support our great causes and help the earth too!

We would like to share a list of tips on thrift store shopping with you! If you have any other great tips that we should include in the list below, feel free to contact us and let us know and we can add them to the website!


Write down measurements of your family and yourself. Having this list handy while shopping will help save time and money by allowing you to purchase items that you know will fit.

Stop in Frequently! Inventory is being placed on our floors not only daily but sometimes hourly! You never know when you will find that perfect treasure!

Be Patient! Sometimes you won’t find exactly what you are looking for, but if you are patient that item will appear sometime and you will be glad you were patient!

Be prepared to dig for goodies! Some thrifts will just throw things in bins and you will have to dig through to find your treasure.

Ask about our Sales! Sometimes there are sales or deals!

Ask about Decor. Some items used for decor are for sale too, just ask!
