St Croix Animal Welfare Center Flea Market

The St Croix Animal Welfare Center ( Flea Market is a wonderful treasure trove. It is within walking distance from the boardwalk in Christiansted.

They have a very good selection of used books at good prices and the woman in charge of this section enjoys books which is a real plus!

We have found a variety of things there such as a hardly-used sextant with navigation tools & books for $10. Two life jackets in very good condition with a bag for scuba gear for $5.  Sportif shorts in great shape (like new) for $1 each. I bought all they had in my size!

They closed for a few weeks for renovations. We heard that they had reopened but when we walked by on Tuesday they were closed up tight and their sign was gone. Oh no, did they open in a new location?

Today I phoned the STX Animal Welfare Center (340-778-1650) and they said that the thrift shop is still in the same location but they have changed their opening hours (they are now closed on Tuesdays).
  • Wednesday, Thursday, Friday: 9:00am to 2:00pm
  • Saturday: 9:00am to 4:00pm
  • Sunday, Monday, Tuesday: Closed
The St. Croix Animal Welfare Center Flea Market is located at 151 Richmond (just east of Olympic car rental). If you are going from Christiansted towards Frederiksted, it is on a street to your right just before you get to the top of the hill before the post office.
