I stop in pretty infrequently now, though. Their prices continue to get higher and higher. I understand that the money goes to a good cause- but the clothing here is so much more expensive than other thrift stores relatively nearby (in Woodland and Sacramento). The prices on furniture, home decor, children's items, etc...seems to just depend on who was doing the pricing the day it came in. Some days you can find a good deal, and some days you will find a used Ikea shelf for more than you would pay for it new at Ikea. Now that I have a child, I'm especially seeking children's items and theirs are, frankly, gross. Stuff I wouldn't even pick out of a free pile priced at $5, like clothes and toys with suspicious stains. --["Users/KianaFreitas"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> SPCA Thrift Storehttp://daviswiki.org/SPCA_Thrift_Store2012-10-29 18:31:55RominaNMunoz <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for SPCA Thrift Store<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 7: </td> <td> Line 7: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>-</span> ||10am -<span>7</span>pm Every day|| </td> <td> <span>+</span> ||10am -<span>6</span>pm Every day|| </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 9: </td> <td> Line 9: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>-</span> ||10 am - <span>6</span> pm Every day (donations appointments: call the manager) || </td> <td> <span>+</span> ||10 am - <span>5</span> pm Every day (donations appointments: call the manager) || </td> </tr> </table> </div> SPCA Thrift Storehttp://daviswiki.org/SPCA_Thrift_Store2012-08-24 15:24:21Angel.York(quick edit) <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for SPCA Thrift Store<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 43: </td> <td> Line 43: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> </td> <td> <span>+ <br> + In spite of all their efforts, sometimes things do end up in the dumpster.</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> SPCA Thrift Storehttp://daviswiki.org/SPCA_Thrift_Store2012-08-24 15:20:10Angel.York(quick edit) <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for SPCA Thrift Store<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 153: </td> <td> Line 153: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>-</span> I agree that this is a sketchy practice, and I've seen them requiring this, too.

The place is fairly decent, but the amazing thing is that most their woman's pants are all brand new. I was very happy that I could by a bunch of unused brand named pants for $0.25 a piece.

In 2010, he discovered that in order to be employed by the SPCA you must first fill out two applications: one for employment and one to volunteer. You cannot be employed by the SPCA unless you first volunteer for a minimum of two weeks. Volunteering is complicated by the fact that if you don't have health/medical insurance on your own you cannot volunteer for them -- and therefore cannot qualify for a paid position. In this way, employment at the SPCA not only keeps their costs down (since they don't have to pay for insurance for the volunteers save for extreme circumstances) and is all but impossible unless you are a student at UCD where insurance is mandatory or a citizen who is just looking for something to fill your time.</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> SPCA Thrift Storehttp://daviswiki.org/SPCA_Thrift_Store2011-01-21 08:21:48bryceadams <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for SPCA Thrift Store<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 144: </td> <td> Line 144: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>-</span> "2010-12-29 16:16:16" [[nbsp]] While many employees, both present and past, will laud the SPCA as being a great opportunity to get paid and help a worthy cause, those actually in need of a job might wish to look elsewhere.

In this way, employment at the SPCA not only keeps their costs down (since they don't have to pay for insurance for the volunteers {which they are exempt from anyway according to the department of labor} save for extreme circumstances) and is all but impossible unless you are a student at UCD where insurance is mandatory or a citizen who is just looking for something to fill your time. If you happen to be one of the unfortunate who desperately needs a job in this economy, too bad, better look elsewhere. --["Users/Dennis.Brovald"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> SPCA Thrift Storehttp://daviswiki.org/SPCA_Thrift_Store2011-01-20 19:52:40PeteBMap location(s) modifiedSPCA Thrift Storehttp://daviswiki.org/SPCA_Thrift_Store2011-01-20 19:52:40PeteBRevert to version 1237 (reverting to put dennis' info in the comments where it belongs). <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for SPCA Thrift Store<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 1: </td> <td> Line 1: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>- = '''["Users/dennis.brovald"]''' =</span> </td> <td> <span>+ [[Image(spca_2005.jpg, "SPCA Thrift Store, summer 2005.", 400, thumbnail, right)]]</span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 3: </td> <td> Line 3: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>- Read the comments on your pages and respond to the people who have tried to reach out to you!</span> </td> <td> <span>+ ||&lt;bgcolor='#E0E0FF'&gt;'''Location'''||<br> + ||[[address(920 ["3rd Street"])]], Suite F||<br> + ||(Just East of the ["train tracks"])||<br> + ||&lt;bgcolor='#E0E0FF'&gt;'''Store Hours'''||<br> + ||10am -7pm Mon-Sat and 10am-5pm Sun||<br> + ||&lt;bgcolor='#E0E0FF'&gt;'''Donation Hours'''||<br> + ||10 am - 4 pm Every day (donations appointments: call the manager) ||<br> + ||''Call ahead for information regarding items currently being accepted''||<br> + ||&lt;bgcolor='#E0E0FF'&gt;'''Phone'''||<br> + ||(530)758-0544||<br> + ||&lt;bgcolor='#E0E0FF'&gt;'''Website'''||<br> + ||[http://www.yolospca.org/index.php?option=com_content&amp;view=category&amp;layout=blog&amp;id=51&amp;Itemid=76 Website link]||<br> + ||[http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=8149248813 Facebook Group Page]||<br> + ||[http://www.facebook.com/pages/Davis/Yolo-County-SPCA-Thrift-Store/266730059691 Facebook Fan Page] (updated more frequently)||<br> + ||&lt;bgcolor='#E0E0FF'&gt;'''Payment Method(s)'''||<br> + ||Cash, Visa, MasterCard, ($5 minimum)||</span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 5: </td> <td> Line 20: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>- Please stop editing this page until you have done so</span> </td> <td> <span>+ =====</span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 7: </td> <td> Line 22: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>- Click your name in the upper right corner to see your messages.

There are also a handful of items that they are unable to accept for safety reasons, which include: mattresses and bed frames, large appliances (such as washers, dryers, and refrigerators), TVs that are older than ten years, car seats, cribs, and disassembled furniture. If you are unable to make it to the thrift store with your donations, they offer a pick up service by appointment - call 530.758.055 to make arrangements.<br> + <br> + Donations are processed the same day that they are received.

Other items that cannot be sent in for sale are re-donated to other community organizations. The Salvation Army picks up items from the thrift store three times a week.

The damage done to the unused side door and display case outweighed what they stole by leaps and bounds (they smashed a jewelry case that was unlocked). In addition to the donation box, they have a store restoration jar by the register. --["Users/JaniceGutshall"]<br> + ------<br> + ''2008-02-19 09:53:09'' [[nbsp]] GrumpyoldGeek stop being so cynical, these people are mostly volunteers thats not something a volunteer would do, perhaps their inventory was full and sent it to a sister store or perhaps it sold almost immediatly, i mean this place does get a ton of traffic every day. goddamn why even donate if your going to take that attitude afterwords, be content with your own actions and stop judging others and assuming the worst. --["Users/piratechef"]<br> + ------<br> + ''2008-02-19 10:03:27'' [[nbsp]] this is a great thrift store, if youre looking for customer service or perfect displays go to arden, if you understand what thrift stores are all about and like them this is one of the best. i just dont understand all of these angry customers, if i ever saw any of you giving their employees a hard time like you do on here id probably interevene with my fists because they are doing a great service to the community and to the spca. Keep up the good work guys and the rest of you, i hope you burn. --["Users/piratechef"]<br> + ------<br> + ''2008-04-14 20:27:20'' [[nbsp]] I always thought this place was nifty despite never actually shopping here (to be honest, I never really shop anywhere), but since I finally got out of the financial hole, I figured it'd be a place I'd venture to now. So I ended up coming to this page and was shocked at all the controversy. Seems like a lot of people getting upset over nothing. I don't get why people like to complain about a place when they could easily just stop going there. Its not a retail store, so this whole idea of customer service really needs to be looked at differently. I mean, what are they being compared to? Longs? Target? Walmart? --["Users/SunjeetBaadkar"]<br> + ------<br> + ''2008-04-15 22:33:53'' [[nbsp]] This whole argument seems insane to me. This store is a non-profit. The employees are volunteers. As for Davis attitude and hippies...move to LA if you don't like it. GEEZ. Reading all this bs makes me not even want to go into the thrift store. Haven't seen a circle jerk like this since Berkeley. --["Users/unipeg39"]<br> + ------<br> + ''2008-06-22 10:50:33'' [[nbsp]] I was just told that they're drastically scaling down the toy section (replaced with a new shoe section, which I must say, is very nicely displayed). But my kids had really enjoyed the toy section while I "tried" to shop around, so that would make me less able to come back (without the toys to keep them occupied!!) They said it was "too messy" and the toys don't sell very well (of course, there were many junks in the toy section that they shouldn't even have try to sell them. But I've found many nice toys there myself for 10 times less new). --["Users/youkai"]<br> + ------<br> + ''2008-07-28 17:01:30'' [[nbsp]] I love this little thrift shop. I was there just the other day and found a good sized picnic basket for $2. I also discovered it's a great place to find pretty wine glasses for a decent price.

Great store. --["Users/Maga"]<br> + ------<br> + ''2009-11-22 12:05:27'' [[nbsp]] They still have toys here and there, mostly the bigger toys. I was told that they were afraid the little toys (scattered by the kids who accompany their parents to the thrift store...) would trip and fall someone. Make sense to me, they couldn't be cleaning up the mess all the time.

It is the primary source of funding for the Yolo County Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (Yolo County SPCA). All of their merchandise comes from community donations, which are accepted seven days a week. The thrift store offers a wide selection of clothing, jewelry, accessories, household goods, electronics, furniture, antiques, music, books, toys and movies.<br> + <br> + Donations are accepted daily, from 10:00am to 4:00pm; however, they cannot accept any broken or unusable items. There are also a handful of items that they are unable to accept for safety reasons, which include: mattresses and bed frames, large appliances (such as washers, dryers, and refrigerators), TVs that are older than ten years, car seats, cribs, and disassembled furniture. If you are unable to make it to the thrift store with your donations, they offer a pick up service by appointment - call 530.758.055 to make arrangements.<br> + <br> + Donations are processed the same day that they are received. Most items are priced and sent into the store for customers to purchase, but there are some items that cannot go into the store because of space limitations or other reasons. Clothing, shoes, and purses that are too worn to sell in the store are resold per pound to clothing recyclers. Other items that cannot be sent in for sale are re-donated to other community organizations. The Salvation Army picks up items from the thrift store three times a week. Other organizations that benefit from the SPCA's donations are Families First, Communicare, the Battered Women's Shelter, and the Davis Cold Weather Shelter.<br> + <br> + ||&lt;tablewidth="100%" #ffaa00 :&gt;'''Store Notices'''||<br> + ## Be careful editing the line above unless you understand it.<br> + <br> + They have many weekly specials which may be viewed by looking at their [http://www.yolospca.org/index.php?option=com_content&amp;view=category&amp;layout=blog&amp;id=51&amp;Itemid=76 Website], their [http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=8149248813 Facebook Group Page], or their [http://myworld.ebay.com/yolocountyspca/ eBay Page].<br> + <br> + ||&lt;tablewidth="100%" #ffaa00 :&gt;||<br> + <br> + <br> + The thrift store carries many brand name items, and lots of items that are new with tags. Many of the collectible items that are donated get listed on the thrift store's eBay site. The eBay listings can be found by going to ebay.com and searching sellers for Yolo County SCPA.<br> + <br> + The Yolo County SPCA Thrift Store loves to give back to the community that gives to them! They work closely with the city's ["Public Works" Public Works Department] in a constant effort to reduce, reuse and recycle. Unsellable (but still usable) household goods, sleeping bags, tents and even perishables such as food are taken to Davis Community Meals. They recycle ALL unsellable clothing, shoes, purses, backpacks, and belts to others who need them. Puzzles, games and school supplies are given to schools, youth groups and senior centers. In addition to this, they often support the efforts of other organizations, and have donated books to the Co-op, the library and other animal rescue groups. Tools and garden equipment have supported the efforts of the Persian Cat Rescue program and the Salvation Army truck is a frequent visitor!<br> + <br> + =Photo soup=<br> + [[Image(spca 2.jpg, thumbnail, "More of the book section.")]] [[Image(spca 3.jpg, thumbnail, "Part of the shoe section plus the specialty section behind the counter.")]] [[Image(spca 4.jpg, thumbnail, "The perpetually plentiful belt and scarf section.")]] [[Image(spca 5.jpg, thumbnail, "The very abundant purse/bag/wallet section plus the linens section.")]] [[Image(spca 6.jpg, thumbnail, "The shoe section.")]] [[Image(spca 7.jpg, thumbnail, "The ever-fun and diverse toy section.")]]<br> + <br> + <br> + = Customer Appreciation Days =<br> + <br> + * Tuesdays are Senior Citizen's Discount Day (55 and older) with 20% off all purchases.<br> + * Wednesdays are Student Discount Day (Must have current student ID) with 20% off all purchases.<br> + * Co-op Member Discount is a 20% discount on a single item that is 10.00 or more .<br> + <br> + <br> + [[Image(spca 8.jpg, thumbnail, "Part of the clothing section.")]] [[Image(spca 9.jpg, thumbnail, "A wider view of the store from inside.")]] [[Image(spca 10.jpg, thumbnail, "One of many very full themed sections; this happens to be the garden section.")]]<br> + <br> + <br> + == Thrift Finds ==<br> + <br> + * Some interesting [http://www.bountynsavings.com/tag/thrift-find/ Thrift Finds], including a limited edition porcelain art plate from China, model train sets, Pottery Barn chair, from ["Bounty and Savings"]<br> + [[Image(plate.jpg)]]<br> + [[Image(train.jpg)]]<br> + <br> + =====<br> + <br> + == Employment at the SPCA ==<br> + <br> + While many employees, both present and past, will laud the SPCA as being a great opportunity to get paid and help a worthy cause, those actually in need of a job might wish to look elsewhere. In order to be employed by the SPCA you must first fill out two applications: one for employment and one to volunteer. You cannot be employed by the SPCA unless you first volunteer for a minimum of two weeks. Think you can just fill out the forms and volunteer? Guess again. Unless you have health/medical insurance on your own you cannot volunteer for them (and therefore will never get hired for a paid position either). In this way, employment at the SPCA not only keeps their costs down (since they don't have to pay for insurance for the volunteers {which they are exempt from anyway according to the department of labor} save for extreme circumstances) and is all but impossible unless you are a student at UCD where insurance is mandatory or a citizen who is just looking for something to fill your time. If you happen to be one of the unfortunate who desperately needs a job in this economy, too bad, better look elsewhere.<br> + <br> + [[Comments]]<br> + <br> + See the ["SPCA Thrift Store/Comment Archive" Archive] for more comments.<br> + <br> + ''2008-02-14 22:56:16'' [[nbsp]] I read in the paper that the thrift store had been burglarized a couple of weeks ago.

It is the primary source of funding for the Yolo County Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (Yolo County SPCA). All of their merchandise comes from community donations, which are accepted seven days a week. The thrift store offers a wide selection of clothing, jewelry, accessories, household goods, electronics, furniture, antiques, music, books, toys and movies.<br> - <br> - Donations are accepted daily, from 10:00am to 4:00pm; however, they cannot accept any broken or unusable items. There are also a handful of items that they are unable to accept for safety reasons, which include: mattresses and bed frames, large appliances (such as washers, dryers, and refrigerators), TVs that are older than ten years, car seats, cribs, and disassembled furniture. If you are unable to make it to the thrift store with your donations, they offer a pick up service by appointment - call 530.758.055 to make arrangements.<br> - <br> - Donations are processed the same day that they are received. Most items are priced and sent into the store for customers to purchase, but there are some items that cannot go into the store because of space limitations or other reasons. Clothing, shoes, and purses that are too worn to sell in the store are resold per pound to clothing recyclers. Other items that cannot be sent in for sale are re-donated to other community organizations. The Salvation Army picks up items from the thrift store three times a week. Other organizations that benefit from the SPCA's donations are Families First, Communicare, the Battered Women's Shelter, and the Davis Cold Weather Shelter.<br> - <br> - ||&lt;tablewidth="100%" #ffaa00 :&gt;'''Store Notices'''||<br> - ## Be careful editing the line above unless you understand it.<br> - <br> - They have many weekly specials which may be viewed by looking at their [http://www.yolospca.org/index.php?option=com_content&amp;view=category&amp;layout=blog&amp;id=51&amp;Itemid=76 Website], their [http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=8149248813 Facebook Group Page], or their [http://myworld.ebay.com/yolocountyspca/ eBay Page].<br> - <br> - ||&lt;tablewidth="100%" #ffaa00 :&gt;||<br> - <br> - <br> - The thrift store carries many brand name items, and lots of items that are new with tags.

They work closely with the city's ["Public Works" Public Works Department] in a constant effort to reduce, reuse and recycle. Unsellable (but still usable) household goods, sleeping bags, tents and even perishables such as food are taken to Davis Community Meals. They recycle ALL unsellable clothing, shoes, purses, backpacks, and belts to others who need them. Puzzles, games and school supplies are given to schools, youth groups and senior centers. In addition to this, they often support the efforts of other organizations, and have donated books to the Co-op, the library and other animal rescue groups.

In order to be employed by the SPCA you must first fill out two applications: one for employment and one to volunteer. You cannot be employed by the SPCA unless you first volunteer for a minimum of two weeks. Think you can just fill out the forms and volunteer? Guess again. Unless you have health/medical insurance on your own you cannot volunteer for them (and therefore will never get hired for a paid position either). In this way, employment at the SPCA not only keeps their costs down (since they don't have to pay for insurance for the volunteers {which they are exempt from anyway according to the department of labor} save for extreme circumstances) and is all but impossible unless you are a student at UCD where insurance is mandatory or a citizen who is just looking for something to fill your time. If you happen to be one of the unfortunate who desperately needs a job in this economy, too bad, better look elsewhere.<br> - <br> - [[Comments]]<br> - <br> - See the ["SPCA Thrift Store/Comment Archive" Archive] for more comments.<br> - <br> - ''2008-02-14 22:56:16'' [[nbsp]] I read in the paper that the thrift store had been burglarized a couple of weeks ago. The crooks smashed a window in order to steal jewelry. It's a shame that happens at all, but it's even worse when it's done to a non-profit organization that helps helpless creatures. --["Users/DukeMcAdow"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2008-02-15 20:58:13'' [[nbsp]] I was just in today, so sad that people broke in. The damage done to the unused side door and display case outweighed what they stole by leaps and bounds (they smashed a jewelry case that was unlocked). In addition to the donation box, they have a store restoration jar by the register. --["Users/JaniceGutshall"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2008-02-19 09:53:09'' [[nbsp]] GrumpyoldGeek stop being so cynical, these people are mostly volunteers thats not something a volunteer would do, perhaps their inventory was full and sent it to a sister store or perhaps it sold almost immediatly, i mean this place does get a ton of traffic every day. goddamn why even donate if your going to take that attitude afterwords, be content with your own actions and stop judging others and assuming the worst. --["Users/piratechef"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2008-02-19 10:03:27'' [[nbsp]] this is a great thrift store, if youre looking for customer service or perfect displays go to arden, if you understand what thrift stores are all about and like them this is one of the best. i just dont understand all of these angry customers, if i ever saw any of you giving their employees a hard time like you do on here id probably interevene with my fists because they are doing a great service to the community and to the spca. Keep up the good work guys and the rest of you, i hope you burn. --["Users/piratechef"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2008-04-14 20:27:20'' [[nbsp]] I always thought this place was nifty despite never actually shopping here (to be honest, I never really shop anywhere), but since I finally got out of the financial hole, I figured it'd be a place I'd venture to now. So I ended up coming to this page and was shocked at all the controversy. Seems like a lot of people getting upset over nothing. I don't get why people like to complain about a place when they could easily just stop going there. Its not a retail store, so this whole idea of customer service really needs to be looked at differently. I mean, what are they being compared to? Longs? Target? Walmart? --["Users/SunjeetBaadkar"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2008-04-15 22:33:53'' [[nbsp]] This whole argument seems insane to me. This store is a non-profit. The employees are volunteers. As for Davis attitude and hippies...move to LA if you don't like it. GEEZ. Reading all this bs makes me not even want to go into the thrift store. Haven't seen a circle jerk like this since Berkeley. --["Users/unipeg39"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2008-06-22 10:50:33'' [[nbsp]] I was just told that they're drastically scaling down the toy section (replaced with a new shoe section, which I must say, is very nicely displayed). But my kids had really enjoyed the toy section while I "tried" to shop around, so that would make me less able to come back (without the toys to keep them occupied!!) They said it was "too messy" and the toys don't sell very well (of course, there were many junks in the toy section that they shouldn't even have try to sell them. But I've found many nice toys there myself for 10 times less new). --["Users/youkai"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2008-07-28 17:01:30'' [[nbsp]] I love this little thrift shop. I was there just the other day and found a good sized picnic basket for $2. I also discovered it's a great place to find pretty wine glasses for a decent price. Their used furniture pieces look a bit worn down but most are at considerably low prices as well. --["Users/thai"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2008-09-16 09:56:18'' [[nbsp]] Is the drop off hours 2PM or 3?

I have seen lots of movement last days. Only wish they improved jewelry display on days when jewelry is on sale and put all plain t-shirts into bins and left more space for the really cute items on the racks. Great store. --["Users/Maga"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2009-11-22 12:05:27'' [[nbsp]] They still have toys here and there, mostly the bigger toys. I was told that they were afraid the little toys (scattered by the kids who accompany their parents to the thrift store...) would trip and fall someone. Make sense to me, they couldn't be cleaning up the mess all the time. I wonder how other thrift stores deal with this potential liability. --["Users/val"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2009-12-06 19:08:21'' [[nbsp]] I put this on the Lost and Found page a while back, but thought I would leave it here, too LOST Oct/Nov 2009 Davis High School Yearbook ('97-98 academic year).

I know it's basically a donation but $5 for a tank top? It doesn't even cover your arms! In Woodland, I can find way cheaper stuff and not all of it's old navy.<br> - <br> - But it's got the biggest book section ever.

Also, if you're ever looking for a VCR :]<br> - <br> - Pro tip : Keep a look out for their daily sales. Are you a pants guy?

It is the primary source of funding for the Yolo County Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (Yolo County SPCA). All of their merchandise comes from community donations, which are accepted seven days a week. The thrift store offers a wide selection of clothing, jewelry, accessories, household goods, electronics, furniture, antiques, music, books, toys and movies.<br> - <br> - Donations are accepted daily, from 10:00am to 4:00pm; however, they cannot accept any broken or unusable items. There are also a handful of items that they are unable to accept for safety reasons, which include: mattresses and bed frames, large appliances (such as washers, dryers, and refrigerators), TVs that are older than ten years, car seats, cribs, and disassembled furniture. If you are unable to make it to the thrift store with your donations, they offer a pick up service by appointment - call 530.758.055 to make arrangements.<br> - <br> - Donations are processed the same day that they are received. Most items are priced and sent into the store for customers to purchase, but there are some items that cannot go into the store because of space limitations or other reasons. Clothing, shoes, and purses that are too worn to sell in the store are resold per pound to clothing recyclers. Other items that cannot be sent in for sale are re-donated to other community organizations. The Salvation Army picks up items from the thrift store three times a week. Other organizations that benefit from the SPCA's donations are Families First, Communicare, the Battered Women's Shelter, and the Davis Cold Weather Shelter.<br> - <br> - ||&lt;tablewidth="100%" #ffaa00 :&gt;'''Store Notices'''||<br> - ## Be careful editing the line above unless you understand it.<br> - <br> - They have many weekly specials which may be viewed by looking at their [http://www.yolospca.org/index.php?option=com_content&amp;view=category&amp;layout=blog&amp;id=51&amp;Itemid=76 Website], their [http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=8149248813 Facebook Group Page], or their [http://myworld.ebay.com/yolocountyspca/ eBay Page].<br> - <br> - ||&lt;tablewidth="100%" #ffaa00 :&gt;||<br> - <br> - <br> - The thrift store carries many brand name items, and lots of items that are new with tags. Many of the collectible items that are donated get listed on the thrift store's eBay site. The eBay listings can be found by going to ebay.com and searching sellers for Yolo County SCPA.<br> - <br> - The Yolo County SPCA Thrift Store loves to give back to the community that gives to them! They work closely with the city's ["Public Works" Public Works Department] in a constant effort to reduce, reuse and recycle. Unsellable (but still usable) household goods, sleeping bags, tents and even perishables such as food are taken to Davis Community Meals. They recycle ALL unsellable clothing, shoes, purses, backpacks, and belts to others who need them. Puzzles, games and school supplies are given to schools, youth groups and senior centers. In addition to this, they often support the efforts of other organizations, and have donated books to the Co-op, the library and other animal rescue groups.

It is the primary source of funding for the Yolo County Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (Yolo County SPCA). All of their merchandise comes from community donations, which are accepted seven days a week. The thrift store offers a wide selection of clothing, jewelry, accessories, household goods, electronics, furniture, antiques, music, books, toys and movies.<br> + <br> + Donations are accepted daily, from 10:00am to 4:00pm; however, they cannot accept any broken or unusable items. There are also a handful of items that they are unable to accept for safety reasons, which include: mattresses and bed frames, large appliances (such as washers, dryers, and refrigerators), TVs that are older than ten years, car seats, cribs, and disassembled furniture. If you are unable to make it to the thrift store with your donations, they offer a pick up service by appointment - call 530.758.055 to make arrangements.<br> + <br> + Donations are processed the same day that they are received. Most items are priced and sent into the store for customers to purchase, but there are some items that cannot go into the store because of space limitations or other reasons. Clothing, shoes, and purses that are too worn to sell in the store are resold per pound to clothing recyclers. Other items that cannot be sent in for sale are re-donated to other community organizations. The Salvation Army picks up items from the thrift store three times a week. Other organizations that benefit from the SPCA's donations are Families First, Communicare, the Battered Women's Shelter, and the Davis Cold Weather Shelter.<br> + <br> + ||&lt;tablewidth="100%" #ffaa00 :&gt;'''Store Notices'''||<br> + ## Be careful editing the line above unless you understand it.<br> + <br> + They have many weekly specials which may be viewed by looking at their [http://www.yolospca.org/index.php?option=com_content&amp;view=category&amp;layout=blog&amp;id=51&amp;Itemid=76 Website], their [http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=8149248813 Facebook Group Page], or their [http://myworld.ebay.com/yolocountyspca/ eBay Page].<br> + <br> + ||&lt;tablewidth="100%" #ffaa00 :&gt;||<br> + <br> + <br> + The thrift store carries many brand name items, and lots of items that are new with tags. Many of the collectible items that are donated get listed on the thrift store's eBay site. The eBay listings can be found by going to ebay.com and searching sellers for Yolo County SCPA.<br> + <br> + The Yolo County SPCA Thrift Store loves to give back to the community that gives to them! They work closely with the city's ["Public Works" Public Works Department] in a constant effort to reduce, reuse and recycle. Unsellable (but still usable) household goods, sleeping bags, tents and even perishables such as food are taken to Davis Community Meals. They recycle ALL unsellable clothing, shoes, purses, backpacks, and belts to others who need them. Puzzles, games and school supplies are given to schools, youth groups and senior centers. In addition to this, they often support the efforts of other organizations, and have donated books to the Co-op, the library and other animal rescue groups.

It is the primary source of funding for the Yolo County Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (Yolo County SPCA). All of their merchandise comes from community donations, which are accepted seven days a week. The thrift store offers a wide selection of clothing, jewelry, accessories, household goods, electronics, furniture, antiques, music, books, toys and movies.<br> - <br> - Donations are accepted daily, from 10:00am to 4:00pm; however, they cannot accept any broken or unusable items. There are also a handful of items that they are unable to accept for safety reasons, which include: mattresses and bed frames, large appliances (such as washers, dryers, and refrigerators), TVs that are older than ten years, car seats, cribs, and disassembled furniture. If you are unable to make it to the thrift store with your donations, they offer a pick up service by appointment - call 530.758.055 to make arrangements.<br> - <br> - Donations are processed the same day that they are received. Most items are priced and sent into the store for customers to purchase, but there are some items that cannot go into the store because of space limitations or other reasons. Clothing, shoes, and purses that are too worn to sell in the store are resold per pound to clothing recyclers. Other items that cannot be sent in for sale are re-donated to other community organizations. The Salvation Army picks up items from the thrift store three times a week. Other organizations that benefit from the SPCA's donations are Families First, Communicare, the Battered Women's Shelter, and the Davis Cold Weather Shelter.<br> - <br> - ||&lt;tablewidth="100%" #ffaa00 :&gt;'''Store Notices'''||<br> - ## Be careful editing the line above unless you understand it.<br> - <br> - They have many weekly specials which may be viewed by looking at their [http://www.yolospca.org/index.php?option=com_content&amp;view=category&amp;layout=blog&amp;id=51&amp;Itemid=76 Website], their [http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=8149248813 Facebook Group Page], or their [http://myworld.ebay.com/yolocountyspca/ eBay Page].<br> - <br> - ||&lt;tablewidth="100%" #ffaa00 :&gt;||<br> - <br> - <br> - The thrift store carries many brand name items, and lots of items that are new with tags. Many of the collectible items that are donated get listed on the thrift store's eBay site. The eBay listings can be found by going to ebay.com and searching sellers for Yolo County SCPA.<br> - <br> - The Yolo County SPCA Thrift Store loves to give back to the community that gives to them! They work closely with the city's ["Public Works" Public Works Department] in a constant effort to reduce, reuse and recycle. Unsellable (but still usable) household goods, sleeping bags, tents and even perishables such as food are taken to Davis Community Meals. They recycle ALL unsellable clothing, shoes, purses, backpacks, and belts to others who need them. Puzzles, games and school supplies are given to schools, youth groups and senior centers. In addition to this, they often support the efforts of other organizations, and have donated books to the Co-op, the library and other animal rescue groups. Tools and garden equipment have supported the efforts of the Persian Cat Rescue program and the Salvation Army truck is a frequent visitor!<br> - <br> - =Photo soup=<br> - [[Image(spca 2.jpg, thumbnail, "More of the book section.")]] [[Image(spca 3.jpg, thumbnail, "Part of the shoe section plus the specialty section behind the counter.")]] [[Image(spca 4.jpg, thumbnail, "The perpetually plentiful belt and scarf section.")]] [[Image(spca 5.jpg, thumbnail, "The very abundant purse/bag/wallet section plus the linens section.")]] [[Image(spca 6.jpg, thumbnail, "The shoe section.")]] [[Image(spca 7.jpg, thumbnail, "The ever-fun and diverse toy section.")]]<br> - <br> - <br> - = Customer Appreciation Days =<br> - <br> - * Tuesdays are Senior Citizen's Discount Day (55 and older) with 20% off all purchases.<br> - * Wednesdays are Student Discount Day (Must have current student ID) with 20% off all purchases.<br> - * Co-op Member Discount is a 20% discount on a single item that is 10.00 or more .<br> - <br> - <br> - [[Image(spca 8.jpg, thumbnail, "Part of the clothing section.")]] [[Image(spca 9.jpg, thumbnail, "A wider view of the store from inside.")]] [[Image(spca 10.jpg, thumbnail, "One of many very full themed sections; this happens to be the garden section.")]]<br> - <br> - <br> - == Thrift Finds ==<br> - <br> - * Some interesting [http://www.bountynsavings.com/tag/thrift-find/ Thrift Finds], including a limited edition porcelain art plate from China, model train sets, Pottery Barn chair, from ["Bounty and Savings"]<br> - [[Image(plate.jpg)]]<br> - [[Image(train.jpg)]]<br> - <br> - =====<br> - <br> - == Employment at the SPCA ==<br> - <br> - <br> - <br> - [[Comments]]<br> - <br> - See the ["SPCA Thrift Store/Comment Archive" Archive] for more comments.<br> - <br> - ''2008-02-14 22:56:16'' [[nbsp]] I read in the paper that the thrift store had been burglarized a couple of weeks ago. The crooks smashed a window in order to steal jewelry. It's a shame that happens at all, but it's even worse when it's done to a non-profit organization that helps helpless creatures. --["Users/DukeMcAdow"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2008-02-15 20:58:13'' [[nbsp]] I was just in today, so sad that people broke in. The damage done to the unused side door and display case outweighed what they stole by leaps and bounds (they smashed a jewelry case that was unlocked). In addition to the donation box, they have a store restoration jar by the register. --["Users/JaniceGutshall"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2008-02-19 09:53:09'' [[nbsp]] GrumpyoldGeek stop being so cynical, these people are mostly volunteers thats not something a volunteer would do, perhaps their inventory was full and sent it to a sister store or perhaps it sold almost immediatly, i mean this place does get a ton of traffic every day. goddamn why even donate if your going to take that attitude afterwords, be content with your own actions and stop judging others and assuming the worst. --["Users/piratechef"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2008-02-19 10:03:27'' [[nbsp]] this is a great thrift store, if youre looking for customer service or perfect displays go to arden, if you understand what thrift stores are all about and like them this is one of the best. i just dont understand all of these angry customers, if i ever saw any of you giving their employees a hard time like you do on here id probably interevene with my fists because they are doing a great service to the community and to the spca. Keep up the good work guys and the rest of you, i hope you burn. --["Users/piratechef"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2008-04-14 20:27:20'' [[nbsp]] I always thought this place was nifty despite never actually shopping here (to be honest, I never really shop anywhere), but since I finally got out of the financial hole, I figured it'd be a place I'd venture to now. So I ended up coming to this page and was shocked at all the controversy. Seems like a lot of people getting upset over nothing. I don't get why people like to complain about a place when they could easily just stop going there. Its not a retail store, so this whole idea of customer service really needs to be looked at differently. I mean, what are they being compared to? Longs? Target? Walmart? --["Users/SunjeetBaadkar"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2008-04-15 22:33:53'' [[nbsp]] This whole argument seems insane to me. This store is a non-profit. The employees are volunteers. As for Davis attitude and hippies...move to LA if you don't like it. GEEZ. Reading all this bs makes me not even want to go into the thrift store. Haven't seen a circle jerk like this since Berkeley. --["Users/unipeg39"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2008-06-22 10:50:33'' [[nbsp]] I was just told that they're drastically scaling down the toy section (replaced with a new shoe section, which I must say, is very nicely displayed). But my kids had really enjoyed the toy section while I "tried" to shop around, so that would make me less able to come back (without the toys to keep them occupied!!) They said it was "too messy" and the toys don't sell very well (of course, there were many junks in the toy section that they shouldn't even have try to sell them. But I've found many nice toys there myself for 10 times less new). --["Users/youkai"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2008-07-28 17:01:30'' [[nbsp]] I love this little thrift shop. I was there just the other day and found a good sized picnic basket for $2. I also discovered it's a great place to find pretty wine glasses for a decent price. Their used furniture pieces look a bit worn down but most are at considerably low prices as well. --["Users/thai"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2008-09-16 09:56:18'' [[nbsp]] Is the drop off hours 2PM or 3?

The selection of dishes, kitchenware and knickknacks is second to none - but I have never had much luck in the clothing section. --["Users/Beconomics"]<br> - ------<br> - No more toys. An employee told me today they've discontinued selling them. --["Users/NoelBruening"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2009-06-21 02:24:04'' [[nbsp]] Love this store - but lately have seen more people in there, maybe because of the economy? --["Users/val"]<br> - <br> - ------<br> - ''2009-08-24 17:15:50'' [[nbsp]] Love the store, people working there is awesome. I have seen lots of movement last days. Only wish they improved jewelry display on days when jewelry is on sale and put all plain t-shirts into bins and left more space for the really cute items on the racks. Great store. --["Users/Maga"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2009-11-22 12:05:27'' [[nbsp]] They still have toys here and there, mostly the bigger toys. I was told that they were afraid the little toys (scattered by the kids who accompany their parents to the thrift store...) would trip and fall someone. Make sense to me, they couldn't be cleaning up the mess all the time. I wonder how other thrift stores deal with this potential liability. --["Users/val"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2009-12-06 19:08:21'' [[nbsp]] I put this on the Lost and Found page a while back, but thought I would leave it here, too LOST Oct/Nov 2009 Davis High School Yearbook ('97-98 academic year).
