Welcome to the Ruskin Thrift Store!

This unique non-profit thrift store, operated by the Society of St. Vincent de Paul, has been offering compassion and  assistance to the needy since 1989.  Profits are “reinvested” in the community through St. Vincent de Paul “Conferences”, or groups, based at four local Catholic churches who entertain requests for help from those in need.

The store has 6,000 sq.ft. that is packed with a wide array of items with a special emphasis on clothing for all the family, from the usual household items, to those unique collectibles, and vintage pieces that bring back memories.  There are always examples of pre-WWII furniture, hard to find books, 45’s and LP records, golf clubs, unique jewelry, memorabilia, wall art, and knick-knacks.  Take a moment  to browse through the photo gallery to gain a better appreciation of the variety you will encounter in this clean, neat and well organized layout.  Put the St. Vincent de Paul Thrift Store on your shopping trip and the bargains will surprise you!

Also, please remember that your donations are critical if the thrift store is to continue offering modestly and reasonably priced clothing, furniture, household items, small and large appliances, and other necessities.  You can call for a scheduled pick-up if you live in East and South Hillsborough County.  St. Vincent de Paul is an accredited non-profit with  501 (c) 3 status and donations may qualify as income tax deductions.

3rd Annual Friends of the Poor Walk


September 24, 2016 marked the Saint Vincent de Paul, Saint Anne Conference 3rd annual Friends of the Poor Walk!  The event was very successful and we had a terrific turn out.  Many thanks go out to everyone who participated and those who offered their services, including the local police, the Lennard Highschool ROTC Squadron, and all of the volunteers!  You can see photos of the event below.
