Due to a shortage of volunteers, Bambino will be closed Friday, March 3rd.
We are here for all the children
Opening in 1928, Bambino is a non-profit thrift shop operated by friendly, helpful volunteers from several of the hospital's fund-raising Branches and community members solely for the benefit of UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital Oakland.
Bambino strives to sell quality items to benefit UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital Oakland, where no child is ever turned away because of an inability to pay. The proceeds from our work contribute to essential needs so the Hospital can continue to offer the highest level of care to its young patients.
We gratefully accept gently used, clean, undamaged donations, ready to be priced and sold. We sell clothing, books, household goods, jewelry, furniture, artwork, decorative items, and more.
We accept donations by appointment only on Wednesdays from 11am to 1pm and Saturdays from 10am to 12pm. Please call the shop (510-658-7473) after 11am on the Tuesday of the week you would like to donate. We have a five-bag maximum for each donation drop-off.
Tuesday, Thursday, Friday 11 am - 3 pm
Saturday 12pm - 4pm
Distancing and store rules apply.
Throughout the year, Bambino shoppers look forward to our displays of seasonal and holiday offerings, as well as collections of items celebrating special events and traditions.
