Equine Voices Rescue and Sanctuary in Amado has opened a thrift store in Tumacacori.

The Southern Arizona charity had planned to do this sooner but vandals wiped out a storage unit with their donated items.

Now, the community has responded with new items.

The Gulliver & Friends Boutique and Thrift Shop opened its doors on Friday. 

"We are here in Tumacacori ...across from Wisdom's café... great little shop that has all kinds of household items, some limited clothing, some western wear, eventually a tack store that we're having built," Karen Pomroy of Equine Voices told KGUN9. 

Pomroy says the theft, which initially hurt them, actually resulted in more people coming forward to volunteer and donate to Equine Voices.
