Are you into fashion but also enjoy a great deal on clothing? Check out out two consignment shops.

Both places offer gently used women and men’s clothes, shoes and accessories at great prices.

Community Treasures

Community Treasures thrift store and recycling is a true trash to treasure kind of place! It is a few miles from Friday Harbor along Roche Harbor road. This 501 C3 public charity provides much needed appliances, building supplies and other types of recycling to islanders. It is also a one stop shop for just about every type of used items you could ever dream of. Women’s, men’s and children’s clothing and shoes, toys, shelves and shelves of books, kitchen supplies and cookware, sports equipment, gardening and lawn items, electronics, furniture and loads of building and construction scraps and supplies abound.

If you enjoy spending a couple hours digging around an eclectic mix of things Community Treasures is one stop you do not want to miss.
