5 Things Not to Buy New 

Every day can be Earth Day with VOA Thrift!

Finding small ways to conserve or recycle can create a larger impact if every person does their part.

On April 22nd, we celebrate Earth Day! This day is a small yearly reminder that caring for the environment is something we should all take pride in. Finding small ways to conserve or recycle can create a larger impact if every person does their part.  

For this month’s blog, we’re doing our part to save the planet by sharing five things not to buy new. VOA Thrift can be your go-to resource for household or clothing items that need a refresh in your eyes! 

Kitchenware and Small Appliances 

From plates, bowls, glasses, and serving platters to toasters and blenders, you can find just about anything you’d need for the kitchen at VOA Thrift. Getting ready to serve a big meal for out-of-town guests? Make sure you’re prepared to serve everyone who comes to visit. 


If you enjoy giving gift baskets during the holidays or special occasions, look no further! We’re stocked with baskets of all shapes and sizes. 


Looking for a way to spruce up your outdoor space or even bring some life to a bedroom or office? A flowerpot will do the trick! If you don’t have a green thumb, you can always use a faux plant (we have those too!). 

Office Furniture 

Desks, chairs, filing cabinets, lamps, bookcases… you name it! You can create your very own office space in your home with upcycled items from VOA Thrift. (Hint: We have more than just office furniture, too! Couches… comfy chairs… dining room tables!) 

Kids Toys + Games + Clothing 

They grow up so fast, don’t they? They also outgrow clothes and toys even faster. Don’t break the bank every time your kids outgrow their old duds, we have all sizes and styles to fit your needs. 

Earth Day Bonus! 

Just for fun, here are a few other items you can save money and find at your local VOA Thrift: Home Decor, Picture Frames + Mirrors, Jewelry, Tools and Books! 

Save the planet and plan your next thrift adventure today!
