Last week Sean’s Outpost, the world’s most active bitcoin charity, opened the doors to it’s newest project: a thrift shop in the Outpost’s hometown of Pensacola, FL. Boasting “over 11,000 square feet of knick-knacks, furniture, kitchen ware, toys, clothing, appliances, and so much more,” Outpost Thrift gives even people of modest means a way to support homeless outreach while getting some pretty sweet antique pepper grinders and a VHS of True Lies. I personally got my hands on a very affordable ‘Cheers’ mug and some tasteful wine glasses.
Sean’s Outpost obtained the building from an existing thrift shop that was closing; “the owner offered us the donations that she had not sold, allowing us to get a decent head-start,” store manager Nathan Monk told me. Pensacola as a community supports many thrift stores, but Outpost Thrift is the only one I could identify not operated by a church; it is also the only one that accepts bitcoin.
If you are near Pensacola, and have furniture you would like to donate, here is the Facebook event page for a pick-up they are conducting on February 9th.
Here is all the information about Outpost Thrift’s hours and location:
4406 N. Palafox Street, Pensacola, FL 32505
Hours: Tuesday – Saturday; 10am – 6pm
