ReShare Store (Koningstraat 54A)

This Reshare Store chain represents the Salvation Army, a non-commercial organization, that supports a lot of good causes. The people that work here work as volunteer.

The proceeds that they get from the Stores enable them to do work and realize their vision: contribute to a circular textile chain, help people in need, offer beautiful and affordable clothing for every pocket and create employment for people with disabilities or a vulnerable position in the labor market.

Many brands and stores donate their unsold items to this chain, so there is a big chance you will find completely new stuff here. Take a look at the ReShare website for opening hours.

Terre des Hommes (Hanzestraat 213)

Terre des Hommes is a non-profit organization that supports the cause of putting an end to the child exploitation in all its forms all over the world (read about it in English on their website).

It is quite unique for a foundation: 40 Terre des Hommes shops can be found throughout the country. They are run entirely by volunteers, who are invaluable.

From almost never worn shoes to games like Monopoly. The Terre des Hommes shops sell secondhand goods of good quality, brought by people. All proceeds, after deduction of costs, go directly to our projects. The average amount yearly is about €1.4 million: a considerable contribution.

Have a look in the shop, maybe you will find some treasures for you to take home and that way help contribute to a good cause!
