The Golden Goose Thrift Shop
The Golden Goose Thrift Shop, located in Catalina at 15970 North Oracle Road , is an enormous thrift shop with new things arriving constantly. There are special sales every day that they are open, and the sales are always changing. This thrift store truly must be visited to be appreciated fully. Items cover spectrum- clothing to housewares, sports equipment, jewelry, a very large book collection, a huge furniture section, loads of artwork, lamps…I could go on and on. I have seen everything from Wedgewood china to a Vespa (yep, you read that right- someone donated a Vespa!). If it is time to purge your own belongings (as Rancho Vistoso only allows garage sales twice a year), and they are in usable and salable condition, bring them on up! To arrange for pickup of larger items, please call (520) 825-9101 between 8:00AM and 3:00PM, Monday – Saturday.
You are making a great difference by shopping and donating to the Golden Goose- retail therapy you can feel fabulous about!!!
Ready to have a ball and volunteer? You won’t regret it! I am a volunteer at the Golden Goose (I try to make it most Tuesdays in the morning or the afternoon- depending on my schedule) and I can tell you that I walk out of there like I am on a cloud. They people are fabulous to volunteer with, we have an absolute blast AND it feels great to know that it is directly helping others in the surrounding communities. I have made some great new friends- both volunteers and patrons. There are over 500 volunteers who donate about 6000 hours a month at the Goose. Extroverted personality? Work the sales floor. Not ready to jump in front of the public? Be an integral part of the operations in the backroom (I secretly call it Santa’s Workshop) and assist in repairing, researching or pricing the merchandise. Strong? The truck always need help. The Golden Goose provides funds to the Saddlebrooke Community Outreach and Catalina Community Services who in turn focus many of their programs on children and seniors in both Pima and Pinal counties.
