Community Treasures
Since 1976, Community Treasures has been serving the community from the heart of downtown Galesburg. We offer a variety of goods including, men’s, women’s and children’s apparel, accessories, linens, housewares, collectibles, and furniture.
We aren’t your typical thrift store. Apparel is spot-treated, washed, pressed, or steamed before it hits the sales floor. We even have a seamstress to mend and replace buttons.  Household items get a good soak and bath before you can purchase them. We have exceptionally reasonable prices. Delivery is also available.
We offer a clean and friendly shopping environment. Our staff consists of over 60 active volunteers ranging from age 18 to 91.
In support of The Galesburg Community Foundation, our proceeds provide scholarships and grants for non-profit businesses in the area.
