Two BIG sales events in the Spring & Fall

Thriftique’s major seasonal shopping event kicks off with a ticketed, VIP patron party in the fall where guests enjoy drinks and light hors d’oeuvres while they peruse and purchase high-end, designer clothing, shoes, jewelry, and accessories before the sale opens to the public. Items sold during the 5-day event are the highest quality designer brands which have been collected, curated, and procured from donation batches throughout the year. The spring event is a weekend-long designer sale that is open to the public.

Land Acknowledgement

Thriftique acknowledges that for thousands of years, native peoples have lived on this land, and they still do. Their relationship with the land is at the center of their lives and spirituality.

Thriftique is located in what is presently called Lawrenceville, but we recognize that this land was once an important Lenape village known as Shanopin’s Town in the 1700’s. More broadly, we acknowledge that the place that we call Pittsburgh is the traditional land of the Seneca, a principal member of the Haudenosaunee, or Iroquois Confederacy. This land has also been home to the Monongahela, Moundbuilders, Lenape, and Shawnee peoples. We are grateful for their stewardship of this land throughout the ages and we acknowledge that, while there are still many Indigenous peoples across this land, many have been displaced to reservations far from here.

Jews of many backgrounds have experienced a sense of geographical and cultural displacement over the years. We acknowledge our history of displacement, and as importantly, we acknowledge the ways in which many of us as non-indigenous peoples and settlers have benefited from colonialism, former and ongoing, which has hurt and oppressed Indigenous peoples. We ask for forgiveness as we pledge to continue to educate ourselves and take action to right these wrongs.
