Talking Talons Youth Leadership’s Thrift Store provides an excellent array of great quality, reasonably priced, recycled apparel, shoes, small appliances, household goods, toys, furniture, antiques and unexpected treasures. Our Thrift Store is totally self-sustaining; 100% of revenues, — after sustaining numerous local jobs and necessary store operation expenses — directly support Talking Talons Youth Leadership, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Our staff and volunteers work very hard to provide a wonderful shopping experience. Thank you to our generous and dedicated patrons!

When you donate goods to the Talking Talons Thrift Store, you create opportunities for youth and community members, and you get a tax-deductible receipt! 

Have some extra time? The Thrift Store is often in need of volunteers to help keep things organized and running smoothly. Please use the link below if you would like to help.


The Talking Talons Thrift Store is located at 12159 State Highway North 14, Cedar Crest, NM 87008

Directions: Take I-40 east and exit at the Tijeras/Cedar Crest Exit. Travel north (towards Cedar Crest) on NM 14 approximately 3 miles. Look for the store on your left. We are just before the Triangle Grocery.

 The Talking Talons Thrift Store has evolved quite a bit over the years, but has always been a great connection to the community that directly supports TTYL's programs.  Staff and volunteers make this a great place to donate and shop
