Tailwaggers Thrift Shop is a  boutique-style thrift store offering quality used merchandise at affordable prices. We specialize in antiques and collectibles, but also carry high-end jewelry, stylish clothing in good condition, household items (including full sets of dishware and glasses), a wide variety of books & furniture, as well as arts & crafts supplies.

Best of all, 100% of Tailwaggers' profits go to support the adoption, spay/neuter and education programs of the Sequoia Humane Society. So when you buy a special treasure at Tailwaggers you're also helping us help the animals!

Please visit Tailwaggers Thrift Shop in friendly Henderson Center, on the corner of F & Henderson across the street from Vellutini Bakery. Come by during your lunch hour or while you're out running errands, and in the summer don't forget the Henderson Center Farmer's Market every Thursday.

Remember:  SHS Members Get 10% Off ALL Purchases!


Every Tuesday and Thursday -- 50% off everything (except furniture and new animal carriers)!



You can help the animals at the Sequoia Humane Society by bringing your gently used clothing, furniture, jewelry, books & household items to Tailwaggers Thrift Shop.  Donations are tax-deductible – just ask for a receipt!

Spring cleaning? Having a yard sale? Or maybe you bought a new set of dishes and you want to “recycle” the old ones. Bring your hand-me-downs to Tailwaggers Thrift Shop and we’ll put them to good use!


Have a large piece of furniture you want to donate? Call us – we might be able to come pick it up for you.

Donations of quality used items in good condition and working order are always welcome. Become a volunteer and help the animals in a different way. Volunteering can be fun and rewarding - stop by and talk to Helen to get started.

In the late 1970's, volunteers of what is now known as the
Sequoia Humane Society began holding rummage sales to raise money to build
a shelter - an effort that eventually culminated in the Tailwaggers Thrift
Shop of today. In 2002, the organization hired a store manager to help
expand the shop and increase its income potential. Since that time store
sales have more than doubled resulting in an ongoing recruitment for
additional volunteers. The quality of donations continues to improve and
the growing clientele has developed a stronger feeling of connection with
the store.

We would like to thank our Sponsors!
