About Us The Clausen House Thrift Shop supports Clausen House through sales of donated goods. Located in the Temescal district in Oakland on Telegraph Avenue we sell a huge variety of items including furniture, clothes (men, women, children), shoes, toys, housewares, electronics, collectibles (all kinds of vintage items), art and jewelry.
Donations to the store are tax deductible with certain limitations. We appreciate the good will of our donors but ask you to read the guidelines posted here before bringing your items. We provide a pick-up service for larger items within certain conditions (is the resale value of the items donated greater than the cost of the pick-up?).
Volunteers Needed! The store relies on the generosity of our volunteers who donate their time to keep the operation running smoothly. If you have some time on your hands, you can contact Brian Chavanne (store manager) or Dolores Bishop (volunteer coordinator) at (510) 653-6812
A Teaching Facility The store is a teaching facility for many of the developmentally disabled adults who are served by Clausen House programs. Please visit our website at www.clausenhouse.org for more information.
Separate Entity The Clausen House Thrift Shop is a separate entity from Clausen House with it's own Board of Directors.
