Nice Twice Thrift Shops

As good stewards of God’s creation, it’s our responsibility to use God’s blessings wisely.


LCFS’ Nice Twice Thrift Shops help in many ways:


  • People on limited incomes can purchase used clothes, toys, household goods and other items at low cost.
  • Pastors who have parishioners needing to rebuild their households after a fire or other disaster can refer them to Nice Twice Thrift Shops for emergency needs.
  • Proceeds from the shops are used to fund local services provided by LCFS.


How to donate

Nice Twice Thrift Shops welcome your clean, gently-used clothes, including shoes, belts, hats, scarves and other items. We also accept miscellaneous items including household goods, home decor, collectibles, books (excluding school textbooks), jewelry, toys and linens. Bring them to your local Nice Twice Thrift Shops during business hours or call to make special arrangements.


It’s best to call first to see if the shop can accept a particular item.

Home pickup

Home pickup varies depending on the shop, proximity and items donated. Contact your local shop for availability of pickup services.

  • Televisions
  • Car seats
  • Baby beds
  • Encyclopedias

Nice Twice Thrift Shops are operated almost entirely by volunteers who enjoy working with others and knowing that their efforts benefit the community, the Nice Twice customers and the children and families served by LCFS.

Nice Twice volunteer opportunities include:

  • Sorting items
  • Stocking shelves
  • Working the cash register
  • Creating window displays
  • Assisting customers


Volunteers decide how much time they want to work and when. To make a donation or to volunteer, contact your nearest Nice Twice Thrift Shop.
