Review for Second Chance Inc, Baltimore, MD, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I love this place and its mission statement. They have an ever changing, huge inventory of furniture, appliances, art, and miscellaneous items (today I saw a small canoe size boat and a hot tub).

Items used for filming movies and tv shows as well as historic pieces find their way there as well as furnishings from demolished homes.

For those who donate you get a tax break and for patrons you're helping support training for their employees, many of whom are getting a second chance in the working world and in life due to previous convictions.

The staff is always ample, working together from fork lift operators to sales people to those assisting on the floor to bring items from the display areas located through out the ware house to the loading dock.

Parking is never an issue and you could spend hours there strolling up and down the aisles created by all the goods!

Prices vary but are fair and there are three prices based on the date. For example if an item isn't sold by the dates listed the price goes down. They have sales and holiday shopping prices too.

If you're looking for great items that you won't find anywhere else, and things with a story and character this is your place.

I would go every weekend if I could. The bathroom isn't the cleanest and it's cold because it's a huge drafty Ware house but other than that no complaints.

As you shop it's best to claim items by getting a salesperson to write up a ticket and have it moved to the loading area. Cash or card accepted.

We are so excited to make our own dining room table with lumber and materials we bought today.
