Hope Thrift Store

Welcome to Hope Thrift Store a social enterprise project with a heart for Teen Challenge Tasmania. We are serious about self-sustainability as a charity so all funds raised through this store go to our Youth programs - Connections Mentoring (Primary and Secondary at-risk students) and #NotEvenOnce Drug Education Projects.

The Thrift store located in busy Brisbane Street Mall in Launceston is modelled to be between a traditional op shop and a vintage reseller, with a focus on reducing landfill by encouraging recycling and repurposing of goods. Quality of goods and clothing is prime importance delivered at a sensible price.

The most important aspect however is the heart behind this project and that is to provide real-life retail training, experience and mentoring young people through this welcoming environment no matter what challenges they are facing, just believing in them and letting them have a go.

Hope Thrift is fun and welcoming, so come and check it out for yourself and support this important work.

We cater for Men, women and kids. Although product changes almost daily we carry clothing, accessories, footwear, bags, books, toys and homewares.

Clothing Donations

We are absolutely blown away with the generosity of so many local people supporting this project by donating good quality clothing and goods in our commencement.

  • Donation of good quality clothing, handbags, shoes, accessories, books, jewellery, linen and homewares.
