THRIFT SHOP

5/12/20 Update: As we navigate our way through this pandemic, our store will remain closed. We will reopen based on guidance from the state government, local health agencies, and the CDC. When we reopen, new hygiene and cleaning protocols, as well as social distancing policies, will be implemented to protect the health and safety of our volunteers, staff, and guests. Information about reopening will be communicated through this page, social media, and will be posted on our entrance. Additionally, information will be updated on our Thrift Shop recorded message at 714-289-1182.

Donations: We know many of you have taken the additional time at home to do some needed spring cleaning, but please wait until we have reopened to bring us your treasures! Donations left at the thrift shop while we are closed will not be able to be used as intended. Most likely, your donations will be rummaged through or ruined by the elements before they get through the door, and will end up in the trash and eventually the landfill, which is never ideal. When we do reopen, we will temporarily suspend furniture pickups and will be unable to accept furniture drop-offs.

The entire staff and volunteers of the Orange Lutheran Thrift Shop look forward with great eagerness to serving you, our customers, in the very near future!

MISSION

The mission of the Orange Lutheran High School Thrift Shop is to support the Christian character and education of Orange Lutheran High School students through financial assistance and reach out through ministry to our community.

HISTORY

The original Lutheran High School Thrift Shop opened in 1969 on Chapman Ave. at Prospect and was open for nearly 20 years. The shop eventually closed, but after a few years, it was decided that a thrift shop was needed to provide for student financial assistance. In 1994 the Lutheran High School Thrift Shop opened at 686 N. Tustin St., located in the building we now call the furniture store. Within a few years, we outgrew that space and took over the adjacent building which is our present location. The main store houses clothing, household goods, media, electronics, jewelry, and collectibles. In the furniture store, you will find furniture, refrigerators, lamps and mirrors, medical equipment and rugs.

How is our thrift shop different from other thrift shops? Our shop is clean and organized, we have the best prices in town, and we know many of our customers by name plus what they are looking for!
