Welcome to Friends of Haven Thrift Shop.

Tuesday – Saturday 9:30 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.

We have been established for over 20 years to serve the Community of Nanaimo. At Friends of Haven Thrift Shop you will find everything you need for your home, from furniture, to fine art and collectibles, including a vast inventory of clothing and accessories for your whole family.

We rely on donations from the community and because of this, our prices are extremely affordable to fit any budget. Many of our items of clothing and accessories are brand names and of high quality, which we are thankful for from those who donate to our cause.

At Friends of Haven Thrift Shop we strongly support The Haven Society who provides gift certificates to the women they look after so these women can shop with us for what they and their children need in order to start over.  At our shop, we also accept customer donations at the Wishing Well and donate a portion of the cash proceeds to the Haven Society.

Look for our Silent Auctions we hold from time to time that will be posted on What’s Happening or on our Face Book Page.

If you have larger items such as furniture, or a large volume of items for donation, please contact us prior to delivery. This will allow us to ensure that we are able to accommodate your generous donation at the present time.                                                                                              Donations are accepted at the back of the shop between the hours of  9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.                      Tuesday – Saturday


Our merchandise is always changing, so please visit us often to find that hidden treasure or anything else you need for you and your family.

My daughter had told me about Haven a few months ago and today I finally made it in.  I don’t live locally.  Love the items, the staff and the prices are good.
