Adelaide’s Attic Thrift Shop

February 2023: Adelaide’s Attic remains closed to the public. We can no longer accept used donations. Check back for updates.

Adelaide’s Attic, ironically located in our basement at 33 McGrigor St in downtown Oshawa, is a used clothing and housewares store where every item is $5 or less. The vision for Adelaide’s Attic was to provide every woman a chance to shop in a boutique setting where they will find stylish and practical items for themselves and their family.  This is a safe place for only women to shop. The Attic also provides volunteer opportunities for women to gain retail experience while earning gift certificates for shopping.
