It’s easy to get lost in a sea of midterms, papers and final exams and forget that UCSD is actually kind of cool. There are many unique on-campus resources and stores that students easily forget about; one of which is Friends Resale Shop.

Located right off Library Walk at the UCSD International Center, Friends Resale Shop is one of UCSD’s hidden gems that is actually not-so-hidden at all. Ran by the Friends of the International Center, Friends Resale Shop is an on-campus thrift store, offering a wide range of gently used clothes (contemporary, designer and vintage), household items and books. Proceeds from the sales help fund scholarships and activities related to international education.

There is a wide array of reasonably priced items, making it perfect for students looking to do a bit of shopping, without feeling bad about it. There’s no need to feel guilty about engaging in a little retail therapy when you are helping by recycling the old into new opportunity for your peers to study abroad — it takes upcycling to a whole new level!  

If thrifting isn’t really your thing, but you’d still like to be a part of Friends Resale Shop family, you can volunteer and/or donate gently used items.  

Business Hours: Monday through Friday 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. during the academic year.
