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!
Happy New Year !!!
Lots of Good wishes of Health, Wealth and Happiness

Biggest news for the beginning of the new year: Our eBay store is up and running, and HOW !!!!
You can access by clicking at the bottom of this page under "eBay" or by putting in our store name when you are on the eBay site. Our store name is PXcoolstuff.
All the listings so far have been done by Evelyn, Robert and Danielle. Turns out it is an incredible amount of work (time-wise), between picture taking, posting and shipping. But we are getting good at it and we are steadily selling.
The online workshop is still a mess and Robert is stressing out over it. I keep reassuring him that it will get better...
This new venue for the PX is offering collectibles, vintage pieces and items that need a bigger exposure to increase the funds these types of quality donations can generate. We are still seaking donation of your recycled bubble wraps and peanuts to reduce our shipping costs.
With Epiphany coming up at the end of this week, we are now starting to cull the Christmas collectibles and will post those on line while the more "run of the mill" items will be put on sale. While some folks have been waiting for the sale, we did do extremely well in December thanks to those who know a value when they see it.
Robert also helped reactivate our posts on Craig's List for our larger appliances. So all in all, lots of activities.
A special "Thanks" to Ann and Bill for their help while Scott visited his Dad over the holidays.
Robert and Scott are to be lauded for tirelessly helping with picking up heavy/bulky furniture donations from our generous donors.
If you personally are thinking of doing some volunteering work, please join us, we have loads to do and could use your help in meeting our mission of raising funds for Disabled Vets.
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 !
