The fight for
freedom is hard won.

For women who’ve survived sex trafficking, prostitution, or addiction, the road to recovery often looks impossible. Freedom House (our safe house for women) will soon provide a supportive community and holistic services to help women rebuild their lives and thrive again.

But, rent-free housing and wrap-around services are costly. That’s where the Freedom Boutique comes in. This upscale thrift boutique, selling gently loved items as well as gifts made by survivors, funds the Freedom House, while offering women dignified employment and raising awareness in the community.

Purchase with purpose

Shop sustainably, stock your closet, buy a meaningful gift, enjoy the thrill of a fantastic thrift find, and make a meaningful difference, all in one charming boutique!

The fight against human trafficking is daunting, but every time you shop our boutique, you’re making an impact.

Shop High Quality Items Off-the-Rack

When you shop the racks of our upscale thrift store, you can find gently loved clothes, shoes, scarves, jewelry, etc. in current styles. These items run from $5-$25 and are well-organized and tastefully displayed in our showroom.

Purchase Clothing By the Bag

Here’s where thrifting really gets thrilling! Items that have slightly more wear are sold in bins. Shop through the bins, fill up your bags, and pay $5 for each bag full! If you love a good bargain or are watching your budget, shopping by the pound is so. much. fun.

For an extra good time, give an extra $5 and gift a bag to a survivor!

Give Unique Survivor-Made Gifts
25% of our store is dedicated to new, handcrafted items, such as candles, soaps, essential oil products, jewelry, etc. made by survivors at Thistle Farms and Rahab’s Rope. These items make thoughtful gifts or meaningful pieces for your home, and your purchases empower women and support their journey towards healing.

Great service! I walked in spur of the moment  and loved it! When you buy something here, you make a difference. I’ve been burning my candle ever since.

One of my new favorite spots! The atmosphere is so inviting, the worker was SOOOO nice and helpful, and it supports such a noble and meaningful cause. I ended up with some super cute shoes (the self pricing system is so cool) and a beautiful candle, and I’ll definitely be back!
