Secondhand Treasures is a thrift store located at Caring Hands Center in Altoona, Iowa. At our thrift store, you'll find clothing for the entire family, furniture, home decor, vintage items, kitchen items, collectibles, and home goods.
When you support Secondhand Treasures, you are helping your neighbors right here in eastern Polk County.
