Home Start's Thrift Boutique social enterprise provides revenue to support our life-changing programs. We're not your average San Diego thrift store.
From used designer clothing, to furniture, to rare Padres memorabilia, the Thrift Boutique is your ever changing, one-stop-shop for quality used items in Normal Heights. Additionally, the thrift store provides a supportive setting for young mothers in our Maternity Housing Program to develop job skills and gain work experience as they move toward greater independence, giving them a hand up, not a handout.
Located at 3611 Adams Avenue in the Normal Heights neighborhood in San Diego, the Thrift Boutique is open Tues - Sat, 11 am to 6 pm.
Generous donors (like you!) keep the Boutique stocked with gently used designer items, quality clothing, and fine furnishings.

Who Made the Thrift Boutique possible?
The Home Start Thrift Boutique is a dream realized through a generous legacy gift from Margaret “Meg” Jacobs, who died of complications from breast cancer in 2012. Meg was a social worker who worked at Home Start early in her career. Through this gift, Home Start has touched the lives of so many more children and families in need of our support.
