Unlike new clothes, vintage clothing is already broken in, has had time to establish its pedigree, and is almost always housetrained. Save on ensemble obedience training with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $25 worth of gently used apparel, furniture, and home accessories at Exodus Upscale Thrift in Kentwood. This Groupon is not valid toward new furniture or new bedding.
Exodus Upscale Thrift's sprawling space furnishes savvy bargain hunters with rows of color-coordinated clothes, tome-laden bookshelves, an abundance of children's toys, and a well-rounded furniture collection. Women, men, children, and gangs of streetwise dogs looking to sneak into a movie can don an array of attire from a variety of brands, including tops ($1.99–$3.99), shorts ($2.99), jeans ($4.99), and dress pants ($2.99). Cozify living rooms with a previously loved couch ($50+) or cart in an end table ($10–$15) to keep coffee tables company during family vacations. Besides embellishing people and dwelling spaces with high-quality wares, the non-profit organization also dedicates time to its transitional housing program, helping those in need with shelter and guidance.

The benefit of every sale at Exodus Upscale Thrift is twofold: while customers tow home a stash of gently used clothing, furnishings, and accessories, local halfway home Exodus Place inches closer to its goal of sheltering the area’s homeless. As of June 23, 2010, Exodus Upscale Thrift had helped more than 100 men find housing, according to an interview with CEO Robb Munger in a Michigan Live article, and continues to provide educational resources and access to work-service agencies for Exodus Place residents. “It’s great to accomplish things, but…[w]e have to continue working and creating and doing,” said Munger. The store’s ever-expanding collection, which also includes jewelry, toys, and sporting goods, accepts donations and returns the favor with tax-exemption vouchers and warm, fuzzy feelings replicated only by nuzzling a loofah.
