PTO Thrift Shop

​The Ann Arbor PTO Thrift Shop is “a local, nonprofit thrift shop promoting equity in our community by supporting Ann Arbor Public Schools’ parent-teacher organizations and student activities.” It was incorporated as a nonprofit in 1993 and had its first sale in 1994 in Tappan Middle School’s cafeteria. Governed by a volunteer Board of Directors, the shop now occupies over 22,000 square feet of its own retail space. 

​Most books (and other media) are kept in their own nook located behind the checkout area and down a very short hallway. Craft and activity books are shelved in the craft area. Children and teen paperback books are 25¢ each. All other books are priced as marked. Most seem to be priced at $1 or $2. Books are generally in fair to good condition, bearing in mind that they are used. Several genres are represented, as one would expect from a very small used bookstore. Amount of stock varies.
