The Elephants Trunk Thrift Store

Estate Sales


We would like to introduce you to the Elephant Trunks Thrift Shop, which is owned and operated by the Hospital Volunteers of Venice. The Elephant Trunks Thrift Store is a Non-Profit corporation whose sole purpose is to generate funds to benefit the greater Venice community with Donations, Grants, and Scholarships.

We sell items ranging from full living room, bedroom, and dining room sets, as well as a wide variety of house hold items and clothing. Our source of merchandise is from the generous donations of other organizations and the residents of the greater Venice area.


Please make us your first consideration for future donations and Estate sales. We offer the following to all Donors:

  • Free Pickup        Monday-Friday
  • Deliveries           At a nominal charge
  • I.R.S Receipts    For all donations

Our organization has raised in excess of $8.3 Million since our inception, all of which has been donated through Grants, Scholarships, and Donations all for the benefit of families and organizations throughout the Venice community.

Please come in and visit our store and meet our wonderful staff of volunteers. I am also available for consultation and planning for your Estate Sale.
