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!

We have started again to accept donations of furniture and of appliances, provided they were not subject to flood damage.
We’re now on Fall hours. The PX is open four days per week: Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday & Friday 10 am to 4 pm
Our re-branding of the PX to feature Antique & Vintage Home Decor and Collectables is now complete. We have relocated all our Thrift Store Items to the back of the sales floor space and our Antiques and Vintage Items are in the front area of the store. Of course you'll still will find great bargains all over the store!
Audrey’s displays is making our store look AMAZING !!! Some ladies told us we now looked like a “real” department store. I think that was a compliment 😊. Another fellow asked me if we were under new management, the store being so different. So, to catch you up on our management transition, Scott and Danielle are now officially retired from daily management of the store but will still lend a hand through the end of December. Audrey and Diana are now officially in charge. Diana is new to our volunteer team and is showing great talent. She used to have her own antique store and just like Audrey, found retirement too boring. So, we lucked out there! See more details below.
The Arts and Crafts were moved to larger quarters to accommodate all the new donations received. The fabrics are in their regular space, and antique sewing machines are now in the library area. A very funny story here is that once this flip flopping was done, one of our regular arts and crafts shopper was ready to leave when she did not spot the arts and crafts upon entering the PX on her right. Fortunately, she saw Audrey nearby which indicated that she indeed was in the correct store. That is how much the new look of the PX can surprise.
Quilters, Alice (from Canada) took care of measuring, tagging and displaying volumes of new fabrics. We now have large yardage of very wide fabric in stock, great for quilt backing use. Mary Beth has also prepared loads of quilting fabrics, kits and patterns. Be first in line to get them! Mary Beth’s goal is to make shopping for your supplies a breeze. Kudos to Mary Beth, the arts and crafts department is great!
This fall, we will be advertising again with the Grand Strand Myrtle Beach Shopper's Guide in their Antique and Vintage Shops booklet. Of interest, a visiting couple told us that they saw raving reviews of the PX on TripAdvisor.com which made us a must go place to visit on their vacation. They were delighted with the PX and shopped up a storm.
A BIG thank you to Rosie from SeaSea Gallery for donating time and restoration skills to re-frame a finished ribbon embroidery piece for us. Rosie, we really appreciate your contribution. Ask us to show you her handycraft!
The PX 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 two generous gifts of stocks, the PX is in better financial shape thanks to you.
Please remember to keep your packaging materials to donate to the PX, especially bubble wrap, air bladders and Styrofoam peanuts. That helps us lower shipping costs for our eBay store.
We’re Always Looking for New Volunteers:
Want to get involved ? 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.
After completing 5 years of service, Scott and Danielle are now officially retired as store managers. We are actively looking for interested folks to support Audrey and Diana who have stepped up to the challenge of leading the PX to even greater heights. Audrey is the General Manager and Diana is the Manager of our Jewelry Department. When you come in to shop, please make a point of meeting these two wonderful ladies. They are both committed to do all they can to meet our mission statement to help Disabled Veterans.
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!
