Fosters reStore – Redefining Your Thrift Store Experience

Fosters reStore, located at 2000 Lathrop Ave. in Racine, is redefining your thrift store experience. Born out of love and generosity, Fosters reStore, a division of the foundation, is an open to the public non-profit retail thrift store.  Located in Racine, Wisconsin, we pride ourselves on offering a clean and refreshing retail experience for our customers while supplying a much-needed source for clothing and supplies to foster parents and the children they take in.

Fosters is one of the best thrift stores you’ll ever step into. From the brightly lit showrooms to the HUGE selection of clothing, organized by size and color, you’ll definitely find something you’ll love. We carry 10’s of thousands of clothing choices, household items, kids toys, baby equipment, purses, belts and backpacks, all sizes of clothing from infant to adult, an enormous selection of shoes all at $4.99 and under, and a second floor full of brand new furniture and mattresses.

Unlike other corporate thrift stores, 100% of the profits will directly benefit educational and other programs for foster children and beyond.  You won’t find any million dollar CEO salaries here.  Our director takes no salary, thus making more available to help the community.

We accept donations 7 days a week at our Racine location or any of the drop-off locations listed here on our website.  All donations are tax deductible.  Please visit today, but check our Sales page for any current discounts.  To drop off donations, please follow the signs to the South side of the building, ring the bell and someone will come out to assist you.  Please visit here to get a list of what we can and cannot take in as donations.


So much clothing, infant to adult

Our showroom is stocked with over 100,000 pieces of clothing, from infant to adult sizes, including maternity. Browse our extensive women’s and men’s departments, and our expanded women’s Plus size racks. Then head over to the infant, toddler, and youth sections and stock up at prices you can afford. We carry more young sizes than any other thrift store. All sorted for quality and style. And the best part is every dollar you spend stays in the organization, helping foster children maintain their dignity. We even play movies for the kids so you can get your shopping done with no distractions.

Purses & Accessories

Need some new accessories?

Fosters reStore carries a huge selection of purses, belts, hats, scarves, and more. We’ve got backpacks for the kids, huge diaper bags for the moms, and duffel bags for the dads.  Stop by before you travel and browse our selection of luggage.

Toys, Toys & Toys

Enough toys to drive your little one crazy! (in a good way)

Kids get bored easily, especially with toys. Why pay retail for something your little one will have more fun with the box than the actual toy. Come visit us and get some new toys at a fraction of what you’d pay anywhere else.

Baby Equipment

Great baby stuff to please even the pickiest little one.

Babies grow fast. REALLY fast. And shopping for baby equipment is a major financial purchase. At Fosters it doesn’t have to be. We carry quality checked baby equipment which is clean and like new, ready for your little one to smile, laugh, and play over.

Furniture, Mattresses, & Bedroom Sets

Save HUGE on NEW furniture, bedroom sets & mattresses

They’re NEW! We carry a great selection of new furniture and bedroom sets. Is your current mattress lumpy and uncomfortable? Don’t spend thousands on something that will wear out fast. Grab one of our affordable new mattresses in all sizes from twin to king. We also carry metal bed frames and matching box springs.
