Common Things Boutique & Thrift Shop: More than just a great deal!

Common Things is not your ordinary run of the mill boutique or thrift store.  Just ask our customers, donors,  volunteers and staff!
Common Things offers great items at great prices and is also a place where our awesome volunteers enjoy coming to join us in our “small revolution of kindness.”  Common Things often plays the role of Common Heart’s “welcome center.”  Every week new customers come in and immediately notice that Common Things is different.  Not only does Common Things strive to create a well organized, clean and creatively eclectic shop but its mission is to support the efforts of Common Heart.  

When customers realize that a purchase of $20 feeds a hungry family of four for a week, they feel good about their purchases.  The same is true of our donors who often tell us that they are bringing their donations to Common Things because they know that they will make a difference in the community.
We regularly receive name brand, like new clothing donations like American Eagle, Ralph Lauren, Charlotte Russe, Lucky Brand, Aeropostale, Calvin Klein, LuLaRoe, Levi’s, Under Armour, Carhartt, Lilly Pulitzer and much more.  Common Things offers these at less than half of what customers would normally pay at consignment shops and most of our new and nearly-new clothing is priced below $5!  On top of that, twice a year our customers can literally purchase an entire wardrobe of clothing for $10-$15 during our famous bag sales, which are great for families with growing children.   
Common Things has something for everyone and every budget.  You can always find great bargains on home decor, linens, books, toys, antiques, collectibles, jewelry and much more.  Each week a plethora of items are put on the sales floor so that customers are always seeing new merchandise.   We often receive unique items that make us laugh or remind us of when we were young.  Sometimes we find that a donor has given us a “diamond in the rough” and with a little bit of elbow grease we’re able to sell that item and feed several families for a week.  
Common Things is also a place of healing for many who have walked thru our doors.  Whether it's our dedicated and hardworking staff stopping to pray with a crying grandmother worried about her grandchild or gathering clothing and blankets for a homeless resident, Common Things is here to help.  Our caring volunteers have often comforted and offered a listening ear to folks who are coping with the recent loss of a loved one or a terminal medical diagnosis.  Common Heart is about caring, loving and making a positive difference.  
“Even in those early days, it was very apparent that Common Things was much more than a thrift shop,” Associate Executive Director Deb Adams said. “Common Things is an extension of Common Heart that has touched the community in a way we never expected.  I’m honored and humbled that the Lord would channel His love through this small shop to those in desperate need.”
You never know who will be walking through the doors of Common Things and what adventures and opportunities will intersect and possibly change lives forever.   
Volunteers are always needed and appreciated!  We offer community service hours for high school and college students and others who may need them. Common Things also offers volunteer opportunities for groups of up to 10 people (teens & adults).  We Love our Volunteers & Our Volunteers Love to Serve!  
To volunteer at Common Things, email Deb@CommonHeart.org or call 704-234-8168.

  11. In the realm of nondescript combinations, boutique dress gives an incredible option in contrast to enormous box brands. Persnickety Clothing, Mustard Pie Clothing, Matilda Jane, Giggle Moon and Joyfolie shoes are only some of such brands.
