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 clothing and accessories at Destined for Grace Thrift Stores in Carpinteria, Goleta, or at the forthcoming location in downtown Santa Barbara.

A nonprofit establishment, Destined for Grace peddles a variety of used clothing, furniture, and accessories, devoting its income to the education of Haitian children. Customers can thread up thighs in women or men's pants ($4) or don shoes ($3) for enhanced centipede stomping. Patrons can wrap whippersnappers in a selection of children's clothing ($1) or buff up brains with hardback ($2) or paperback ($1) books. A selection of kitchenware ($2+) can help cooks cook more elaborate meals or learn to juggle with the weapons of their trade.

Proceeds from patrons' purchases go to the community of Mirebalais, Haiti, where volunteers currently manage a local school and intend to establish a new one. Efforts educate and feed local children, increase enrollment in schools, and inspire the pursuit of higher education.

Destined for Grace Thrift Stores

When Rebecca Costa-Smith took a church trip to Haiti, she never dreamed it would change her life. reports that Costa was deeply moved by the destitution she witnessed among the Haitian youth, and knew it was her fate to make a difference. Less than a year later, she returned with her best friend Lindsey Connolly. It was on that trip that the duo formulated the Destined for Grace concept. Destined for Grace is a non-profit organization that provides food and education for more than 125 grade-school children in poverty-stricken Haiti. As part of this continued effort, Rebecca and Lindsey established the Destined for Grace Thrift Stores, whose profits are used solely to fund their humanitarian efforts.

Had been to a different location of theirs. Prices are very reasonable and I found some great stuff. They were friendly and helpful and helped carry items to my car. I had also recently used their pick up service to donate several items from a business move.
