Gently-Loved Goods to SPARCC Your Attention

Hunting & Gathering

As the third installment of a new weekly series, we're rolling out local thrifting destinations for those frugal shoppers to get their fair share of gently-used, recycled bargains.

If you searching for some serious treasure, look no further than SPARCC. The local nonprofit's mission to stop domestic and sexual violence doesn't stop there. Through their retail sector Treasure Chest, which relies on thoughtful and quality donations — from home accessories, antiques, collectibles and clothing — they're able to provide help, hope and healing for victims. With a background in quality furniture and clothing, the manager Linda Thull refers to their stock as "the high-end of resale." Florida brands and items that fit the quintessential Floridian lifestyle are always popular. “Sometimes, having just moved to Sarasota, people come in to look and leave having furnished nearly their entire home,” she says. Furniture, clothing and jewelry have been selling particularly well as the masses migrate. “We have people who come in for hours or in groups; they play dress-up and imagine their lives with our pieces,” she says. She invites the community to support a great cause, find gently-loved pieces for heavily-loved prices, and enjoy an experience with Treasure Chest. Walking into Treasure Chest is more than a shopping spree; it is truly an adventure, or rather, a hunt.
