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!

June 2018 Newsletter
Summer hours are here. We are adding a day and shifting the hours to a bit later in the day. This allows you to hit the beach before shopping :)
The PX is open four days per week: Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday & Friday 11 am to 5 pm.
In time for the summer rush, our Arts and Crafts Department is having a 20% OFF on ARTS and CRAFTS until further notice!!!
Those of you who visited us a year ago will notice that the space was totally re-vamped thanks to Mary Beth with the help of Dee, Audrey and Allie.
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. Mary Beth has also prepared loads of quilting fabrics, kits and patterns. Be first in line to get them!
Audrey has been 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 and Scott cleaned a bunch of area rugs and we now have them ready for you.
A BIG thank you to Rosie from SeaSea Gallery for donating her time and restoration skills to re-frame a finished ribbon embroidery piece for us. Rosie, we really appreciate your contribution.
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 generous gift of stocks, the PX is in better financial shape thanks to you.
Please remember to keep your packaging materials to donate to the PX. That helps us lower shipping costs for our eBay store.
We’re Always Looking for New Volunteers:
Want to get involved in our mission, 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 outs of running the non-profit. 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!
