UpStart Thrift Store

Upping our Impact with UpStart Thrift Store

The UpStart Thrift Store was launched in the summer of 2022 as a project of Startup Junkie Foundation to help generate resources to better serve our community. The store generates revenue by selling donated clothes and home goods at more affordable prices than most resell shops.

UpStart Thrift is located at 235 Main Street in Farmington, just outside the Fayetteville city limits westbound on Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard.

All of the proceeds from the store, after rent and utilities, are used to fund Kiva loans and small business grants to entrepreneurs and small business owners in Washington County.

Apply for an UpStart Small Business Grant

UpStart Thrift Store awards needs-based grants starting at $500 to small business owners in Washington County. The UpStart Thrift Store team works alongside Startup Junkie Foundation leadership to select the awardees based on the merits of their application. If your startup or small business could benefit from such a grant, fill out the application at the link below.
