Thrifty shoppers have the best places to shop in El Dorado County and Folsom thanks Snowline Hospice.

The thrift stores’ shelves and racksĀ are filled with “quaint, quality items” as Cameron Park thrift store employee Nancy O’Rourke put it, and every dime made goes to a very worthy cause. All proceeds from thrift store sales go to help support the mission of Snowline Hospice – supporting patients near end-of-life and guiding loved-ones through grief.

From dishes to dresses to sofas and sewing notions, Snowline Hospice’s thrift stores have something for everyone and, thanks to generous community donations, the inventory changes daily. One day a shopper might find a bike with a basket and tassels perfect for a little one; the next day a designer handbag shows up in a display case … you never know until you go and check it out.

In addition to great selection, shoppers also enjoy the great volunteers who work with Snowline staff at the thrift store locations.

“The volunteers are friendly, happy and they work hard,” O’Rourke said.

Snowline Hospice has six thrift store locations: Folsom, Cameron Park (2), Placerville (2) and Camino. For more information call (530) 344-4433 or visit snowlinehospice.org/thrift-stores.html.
