Pick of the Litter Thrift Store
Whatever you’re looking for, you’ll probably find it at the Pick
The Peninsula Humane Society & SPCA operates a resale store at 1127 Chula Vista in Burlingame just off Broadway and close to Highway 101 and Cal Train. All proceeds directly benefit the shelter animals at PHS/SPCA. The Pick is open Monday through Saturday, 11am to 6pm, and Sunday, 12pm to 4pm.
Pick of the Litter features various second-hand treasures including clothing, household items, art, jewelry, electronics, books, vintage and costume clothing, and a children’s department. The Pick sells several of its thrift store items online at
Walk-in donations are welcome daily 11 AM until 5 PM Monday through Saturday and 12 PM until 3 PM on Sundays. Donations are NOT accepted on the First Friday of each month due to our monthly 50% off sale. We accept for donation clothing, housewares, collectibles, books, records, tapes, CDs, hardware, art, jewelry, toys and holiday decorations in saleable condition. Furniture donations however are on an approval basis only utilizing our Resale Advisor. No furniture will be accepted as a walk-in donation. Our Resale Advisor can also approve and pick up entire estates. To schedule a pickup with our Resale Advisor, or for more information regarding donations, please call 650-344-1662 and choose option #2. We cannot possibly list all the items we accept, but do want to list those items we do not accept for your convenience (click here). We know you want your donation to help the animals and the items we do not accept are ones that have proven not to sell at our store. Items that are broken, chipped, cracked, damaged, dirty, odorous, scratched, worn-out, stained, torn, wet, moldy, rusty, frayed, disassembled or incomplete DO NOT SELL. They take up space and eventually require that we take them to the dump and use donors’ funds to pay for disposal. Thanks for thinking of the animals!
