Thrift Stores are everywhere.  As a matter of fact I can’t tell you the number of people I’ve spoken with that seek them out on vacation in a new town or city.  It is as if they say something about the place, the people and the culture.  So what makes ours different?  We are located in an area of Lincoln just south of downtown.  For us the relational connection to our patrons is the thing that matters most.  We want to be a place known for our engagement with people.

To provide low-cost, high quality goods to the people of the neighborhood:

Our goal is to be a blessing to the residents of the downtown area by providing necessary household goods and clothing at a reasonable cost and at an accessible location.

To be a center for Relationships Restoration:

 Transformations will have a coffee center set up where people can come and talk and care for one another.  Our hope is that a pot of joe, a couple of tables and some warm smiles will serve as a catalyst for ministry and relational connection.  Transformations will also provide volunteer opportunities that can offer meaning and purpose. 

To Raise Funds for Atlas: Lincoln:

The profits generated by transformations Thrift Store will support the ministry of Atlas, a mentoring ministry that walks alongside those who are hurting.  For more information on Atlas go to
