Unlike secondhand clothes, secondhand fruit is useless thanks to an overabundance of juggle wounds. Enjoy secondhand products untainted by clowns with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of merchandise at Casa de los Niños Thrift Store.
Showcasing more than 14,000 square feet of pre-owned prized possessions, Casa de los Niños Thrift Store offers value-conscious customers a wealth of gently worn wearables, as well as hand-me-down sporting goods, toys, housewares, electronics, furniture, and more. Spiffy suits for men start at $6, women can gather dresses and other graceful garments for around $5, and jeans keep the whole family from accidental exhibitionism starting at $3 per pair. Though the selection is ever rotating, customers can expect to regularly uncover forgotten treasures such as good-as-new sporting goods, long-lost favorite books and records, and stuffed animals boasting an impressive resume of past tea-party experience. Small and large appliances, including TVs and stereos, can be regularly snagged in still-working order, as sofas, chairs, and end tables await to fill the void in an empty living room's otherwise idyllic life.
Best known as a crisis shelter and residence for victims of child abuse, Casa de los Niños has been a beacon of hope in the Tucson area since opening in 1973. All of the thrift store's profits go to help fund center programs, which include everything from family-visitation services and parent education to behavior-health services and more.
