Monarch Thrift Shop and One Heart One Soul have begun a new partnership! With a combined 15 years of impact, our social enterprise partnership will provide employment training and opportunities for youth experiencing homelessness.

Monarch continues to provide quality merchandise in a boutique environment where all proceeds benefit programs for vulnerable populations.

We also rely on financial donations to grow and continue our mission.

Your financial contribution today will go toward materials, learning space, and supervision for our youth retail certification program!

We are a 501c3 organization. All dollars and items donated to Monarch Thrift Shop are tax deductible. The responsibility of estimating the value of the gift-in-kind donations is placed on the donor by the IRS, rather than the agency receiving the donation.

We are currently suspending donation drop-offs until August 21st; please call or email to arrange a time., 773-797-2090.

When we do begin taking donations again, due to our limited sales options, we are only accepting clothing, home decor, some housewares, and furniture items in very good to excellent condition. 

  • Women's clothing
  • Men's clothing
  • Accessories
  • Furniture
  • Household Goods
  • Home Decor
