At Community Treasures, we follow a full circle approach to philanthropy. Community members donate gently used clothing and housewares, volunteers organize it, and our customers purchase fantastic clothes, shoes, or home goods below retail prices. Proceeds go to the Galesburg Community Foundation Impact Fund, which awards grants to nonprofits serving Knox and Warren counties.


Whether you’re downsizing, spring cleaning, or just had a garage sale, we will gladly take your items for donation—from furniture, housewares, and collectibles to clothes, toys, and books. Your donations are tax deductible.

  • Donation hours are Monday through Friday from 10 am to 4 pm and Saturday from 10 am to 1 pm.
  • Items we cannot accept include beds, bed pillows, large appliances, xl furniture, chemicals, paints, cribs, or car seats.
  • If you can’t bring your donations to the store, give us a call at 309.342.9018 and we will schedule a time to pick up your donations.


We aren’t your ordinary second-hand store. Apparel is spot treated, washed, pressed, or steamed before it hits the sales floor. We even have a seamstress to mend and replace buttons. Household items get a good soak and bath before they are displayed. We have exceptionally reasonable prices.

See something you like but can’t make it to the shop? Delivery is available by calling 309.342.9018.

Have fun while making a difference. Join a crew that believes in the community as much as you do!
