The Giving Tree is a non-profit resale and gift shop in Wake Forest, NC. Our mission is to support the ongoing educational, enrichment and extra-curricular programs of the Wake Forest elementary, middle and high schools (public, private and charter) through the donation of profits generated from both our online and resale shop.

We bring your once loved home goods back to life

We provide a boutique shopping experience at discount prices. We specialize in showcasing donated home decor items in a non-traditional thrift-shopping environment. Our store moves beyond the old thrift store mentality of having to “sift through junk to get to the good stuff.” Everything in our store is the good stuff at great prices.

Most of our customers have the same reaction when they visit us for the first time, “This does not look like a Thrift Store!” Exactly!

We sell donated furniture, china, cookware, glassware, collectibles, artwork, wall decor, linens, cookware, and books. We also have children’s books and toys, as well a selection of new accessories (jewelry, watches and scarves) to complement our existing line of donated merchandise. Providing this new merchandise alongside the used allows us to provide an upgraded customer experience and brings in customers who might not otherwise go to a resale store.
