The idea of The Estate Store was conceived in 2011 when the Senior Services for South Sound activities department saw a need for more space to sell donated goods. They held three estate sale fundraisers at The Olympia Center that year to raise start-up funds. An Estate Store committee was formed to search for a location for the store. The lease was signed on December 15th, 2011.
Since February 2nd 2012 we’ve been selling donated antiques, vintage and retro items to raise money for Senior Services. We are a fun destination for a bit o’ history and browsing.
The Estate Store participates in local and community events most importantly Olympia Arts Walk in April & October every year featuring our Painted Chair Contest and Silent Auction! In addition to that we have monthly repurposing arts & crafts workshops the 3rd Saturday of every month using items donated to the store!
Our staff is predominantly volunteer based so if you have an interest in antiques, retail or customer service give us a call, we may have a position available.
Stop in donate, shop or just remember when….
