Thrifting is a unique experience and can be fun for people of all ages. It is the perfect example of one person’s trash is another person’s treasure. Here are a few reasons why you should stop in and thrift!


It’s inexpensive! Shopping at Stone Soup allows you to get many pieces of clothing for crazy low prices. Offering items at a low price makes thrifting an affordable option for low-income households and makes it a fun bargain for those trying to find a great deal.


Thrifting can be exciting. You never know what you’ll be able to find while shopping at Stone Soup. You may find designer clothing or items for an extremely reasonable price that you wouldn’t find anywhere else.


New items, everyday. Since items are donated throughout the week, there’s always something new every time you come in.


Stone Soup helps the community. Nearly 50% of what comes into the store, it is donated back to those in need in St. Paul Park, Cottage Grove, Newport, and the surrounding communities.


We offer last minute sales. Stone Soup already has low prices, but we will offer sales to give an even lower price, with items sometimes as much as 50% off.

Make sure to like us on Facebook to be notified of any scheduled sales.

Mission: “Engage the community in supporting families and individuals by providing access to quality used clothes, household items and furniture in a convenient, dignified manner.” 

Stone Soup Thrift Shop's parent organization is Basic Needs Inc. of South Washington County, a 501(c)(3) non-profit.
