As a part of my series on second-hand stores, I reviewed St. John’s Thrift Shop back in June.
As I wrote there, the shop is open during the summer. I just found out that the Thrift Shop will be closing for the season on Thursday, Sept. 12. They will be winding up with a half price sale during their last week (next Tuesday-Thursday, 10-2). Now, their prices are already super affordable. This sale means that the prices will be so good, they will almost be giving things away! It’s not the biggest thrift store in the area, but they have a wide spectrum of items, from clothes to toys, from practical kitchen items to framed art. The store is located in the St. John’s Episcopal Church parish facilities at 48 Middle St. The easiest way to get there is to park in the lot which has its entrance on Washington St. roughly across from Midori and Tedeschi); the door to the shop is at the back of the lot.
They are also beginning the changes needed to get the shop ready for the winter fair. Donations make it possible for them to offer quality items at great prices, helping both people on limited budgets and helping to support the church and it’s ministries. Here is the request for donations from their website:
“We are still collecting any and all of your unwanted household items to make sure the shop is looking top notch for that day. Donations can be left at the top of the basement stairs, inside the parking lot entrance (please don’t leave anything outside the door) or contact Martha Whitney at 978-283-9843 or firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange for large quantities or bulky items. As always, we cannot accept computers, TVs or other items costly to dispose of if unsold. Thanks for your ongoing support!”
