Second Chance is a place like no other. You really have to go there to appreciate the kind of place it is. The amount of inventory they have is amazing. You can find anything from a lovely sofa to a bathroom sink - all at great prices! It's mission speaks volumes. Great job!

Not only does Second Chance provide a great service to the community, their customer service is unparalleled. Every time I shop in the store I am impressed with the courteous and prompt assistance I receive. The selection available is very impressive as well and surprisingly well organized for a resale store. All of this combines to make shopping there a very enjoyable experience. I would highly recommend Second Chance Inc to anyone who is looking to improve their home with a unique piece that has the added bonus of being a sustainable and socially responsible purchase.

Second Chance fills a void like no other type of enterprise could. It does double duty by making unwanted or unloved items desirable again, and giving some young people the opportunity to make themselves useful, as well. The vision that Second Chance began with is still a vital part of making our city the unique, historical, and green place that it should be! Reuse, recycle, retrain - makes all the difference.
We love the place, and appreciate all the effort that has gone into making it just what it is - a haven for items that may not have seen the light of day, a gorgeous place to shop, and a place to restart lives! Thanks, Second Chance, to all of your volunteers, workers, and even the shoppers! Bravo!

Second Chance, Inc. is an amazing place! We began originally to find time period piece for our 1929 Baltimore rowhouse. The one thing that stands out is the customer service. From the time we walked in we couldn't have asked for better customer service. We have been back many times (often for things we didn't NEED but had to have) and are always amazed at the level of friendliness and helpfulness of everyone there - even when we are just wandering around.

Amazing place to find that item you really need to enchance your home. At a fantastic price too! Great customer service! The gentleman that was helping me ran out of the item I needed. He told me where to go to get it. I bought some items from Second Chance and I am totally satisfied with them!! A+++++++++++ I am a loyal customer for life!!! And Thank You for the free old window out front. You are truly an asset to the community of Baltimore and Maryland!!
