Pick of the Litter will be reopening soon—and when we do, it will be in our new building at NE First & Fogarty, just across Hwy 20 from the new Les Schwab & behind Enterprise Rent-a-Car. Just look for our mural!

Our reopening date will tentatively be some time in the first part of July. For the safety of our shoppers & volunteers, we're going to take it slow and see how things go as our community reopens. Please check back in the coming weeks for further details, including when & how we'll be able to resume accepting donations.

Meanwhile, you can scratch your Pick of the Litter shopping itch at our virtual eBay store, featuring new listings daily: https://www.ebay.com/str/FOLCAS
