Reflections of Trinity Thrift Store humbly began as an annual used clothing sale called the Swap Shop at Trinity Chapel Church of God in Powder Springs, Georgia in the fall of 2000. The success of our first and subsequent sales events led to the decision to make the Swap Shop a full time venture and on September 27, 2003, we opened our doors to the public as Reflections of Trinity Thrift Store in our current location.
In addition to being a retail establishment, Reflections of Trinity Thrift Store is a community outreach resource center for many charitable organizations. Excellent customer service coupled with our reputation of integrity and a place of hope has established Reflections of Trinity as a pillar in the Powder Springs community.
Much like our physical location, our online store offers a variety of merchandise but carries a greater volume of antiques and specialty items. The Reflections of Trinity eBay store was officially launched in December 2005 to offer market our merchandise to a global audience.
Team 58 Food Pantry, a division of Reflections of Trinity, began in January of 2012. Our mission was to offer a free box of groceries to those in need in our community and we started with 33 families that were identified as needing support. Today, that weekly distribution has grown to over 465 boxes per week. In the 4 years of the food pantry’s existence, we have served over 16,000 individuals, distributed 18,603 boxes of food in 2016 – a total of 991,883 lbs. of food distributed for that year.
Within 13 years, Reflections of Trinity has evolved to include 4 separate divisions: a warehouse division, retail store, eBay store and a thriving outreach division, Team 58. These divisions are supported by 19 staff members (10 volunteer and 9 paid) and operates in over 15,600 sq. ft. of space.
