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!

 OCTOBER NEWSLETTER

Well, we survived Florence!  No major problem at the PX.  We hope your family fared as well as we have.

Until further notice, we will not be accepting donations of furniture or of appliances.  We have traded in our van since we cannot lift stuff anymore.  We hope that if you have such donations, you will be able to deliver them to the PX.

We’re still in summer hours this month and will play it by ear to see when we will switch to winter hours.  The PX is open four days per week: Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday & Friday 11 am to 5 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.  

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 upcoming management transition, Scott and Danielle are officially retiring from daily management of the store at the end of the month and Audrey and Diana will be managing the store starting November 1st.  Diana is new to our volunteer team and is showing great talent.  She used to have her own antique store and found retirement too boring.  So, we lucked out there!

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 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 has also labeled all the Arts & Crafts which really makes shopping there a breeze.

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.

While Jack has been sprucing up donated furniture getting them ready for display, Dee has been getting cookware matched and packaged for sale.  Thank you, guys, you’re the best!

A BIG thank you to Rosie from SeaSea Gallery for donating your 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 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. 

With Scott and Danielle retiring as store managers 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 support Audrey and Diana who are stepping up to the challenge of leading the PX to even greater heights.  Audrey will be the General Manager and Diana will be the Manager of our eBay Store and 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!
