Welcome to Surfside PX
Surfside PX is a non-profit thrift store whose mission is to help out Disabled Veterans.
All merchandise is donated by folks like you. We cannot purchase items for resale or accept items on consignment without jeopardizing our non-profit status. Because we are a non-profit organization, we are not required to charge the South Carolina / Horry County 8% sales tax!
So not only can you get quality items at great prices when you shop with us, you save again when you do not have to add a sales tax!
100% of the benefits from the proceeds of all sales are ear-marked for our chosen three Charities whose mission statement mirrors ours: Helping Disabled Veterans
Donate, Shop and Volunteer with us and Never forget to thank Veterans for our wonderful US-way of life!

May 2018 Newsletter
Please remember to keep your packaging materials to donate to the PX. That helps us lower shipping costs for our eBay store. The eBay stats for 2017 told us that the PX is among the top 10% of eBay Sellers in Dolls and Bears YEAH!!! AND, we now have the seller excellence ribbon on our eBay site (A REAL BIG DEAL) this is supposed to give us an advantage in selling because we received it for good business practices. Thanks to Evelyn and Kathy, sales continue to be strong and we are posting rather unique items there. Dick gave us his Korean war time aviator helmet and jackets. We sold one set to a group of volunteers from Switzerland who are putting together a museum of flight gear at their own cost. They are endeavoring to preserve history. You can check them out at www.flightgear.ch We still have one jacket left (in great shape) that could be yours to wear or display. See it on our eBay store, you'd look great in it!
The PX will still be open three days per week: Wednesday, Thursday & Friday 10 am to 4 pm. Through Memorial Day. We will switch to our Summer hours in June. We will take a break and will close May 12 through May 22.
Mary Beth has re-created our Arts and Crafts Department and requested to have a sale in the Arts and Crafts department to create more space to display more items. We are doing just that. 20% OFF on ARTS and CRAFTS until further notice!!! Also we re-vamped the space at her request and one can now walk around in there... Thank you Mary Beth for caring and for Dee and Audrey for chipping in on the remodel. Allie has also joined in the fun and is keeping the whole area clutter free.
Quilters, Alice (from Canada) took care of measuring, tagging and displaying volumes of new fabrics. We now have large yardage of very wide fabric great for quilt backing in stock.
Audrey, has been dusting away, making displays and relocating items so she is the go-to-gal if you want to find anything! Thank you Audrey for your tenacity, our store is looking AMAZING !!! So, for the record, we were really well organized before, now we have a real showcase! Our patrons are noticing! Some are venturing to call the PX a "Boutique Thrift Store".
Jack is happily re-conditioning furniture items and looking forward to cleaning carpets with Danielle. Thanks to both Audrey and Alan, the positive feedback from customers is lifting everyone’s spirits. Talking about keeping spirits up, let's send Alan, Bill and Danielle good healing vibes as the three of them are now on health breaks! Alan is now in recovery mode and doing well, dropped by to say hello just last week.
The PX now has a Brokerage account. This means that should you, or any one you know, want to gift the PX stocks/bonds, we will be able to accept them and grow the PX's investment portfolio. Thank you Dick for your generous gift of stocks, the PX is in better financial shape thanks to you.
We would love to get more folks involved in our mission. So, if you personally are thinking of doing some volunteering work, please join us. We have loads to do at all levels of the organization and if you want to keep active and engaged, we surely could use your help and special talents in meeting our mission of raising funds for Disabled Vets. Also, if you want to manage the store, we will train you on the ins and out of the endeavour. With Scott and Danielle retiring at the end of this fiscal year (our PX fiscal year is October 31st) after completing 5 years of service, we are actively looking for interested folks to take over the torch and lead the PX to yet even greater success.
Thank you All for being part of Surfside PX's extended family and please always remember to thank Veterans for our freedoms and wonderful US-way of life!
