About the Thrift Shop

Our Thrift Shop was opened in 1977 as an outreach ministry of St. Margaret’s Episcopal Church. It is located on the north side of the church parking lot at 4228 Factoria Blvd SE in Bellevue. Members of St. Margaret’s operate the shop and distribute the proceeds to non-profit organizations after Thrift Shop expenses are paid. We have given away more than $1.5 million to date — and we’re going strong!
