A bit of background… Bargain Basket has served the Des Moines community since 1974 in various forms and locations. The net proceeds from sales have given back over $1,000,000 to organizations working to improve lives of those in need in our community. In January 2017 we closed our doors on the location in the East Village.  We thank each and every one of our loyal customers, volunteers, donors and staff and hope you’ll continue to shop with us!

Location...The new shop location is our Junior League office located at 3811 Ingersoll Avenue, Des Moines. 

Items for sale...We sell women’s boutique items—high quality clothing, accessories, and shoes.
