Hidden treasures await you.

Children's Harbor Treasures & Thrift Store

Helps others while you shop.

From clothing to household items to boats and other valuables, you never know what hidden treasures you may find when shopping the Thrift Store at Children’s Harbor on Lake Martin. The Thrift Store sells donated items and uses the proceeds to help fund the activities at both campuses. So you not only get the opportunity to go home with a new treasure, at the same time you get to help seriously ill children and their families.

Visit us on Lake Martin.


The Children's Harbor Treasures & Thrift Store is open from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays.
