Boomerang is a generosity shop with a special mission. They sell donated and consigned items of quality at accessible prices, and then give every penny of profit back to local causes.

Here’s how it works: people donate items, Boomerang sells them at reasonable prices and then splits the process 50/50 with local charities, including Friends of the Carpenter. Almost everything in Boomerang has been repurposed, reclaimed, or renewed — from shelves to decorations to every item they’re selling. Boomerang is a 501 (c) 3. To donate or learn more:
