Thrift Shop is CASH only. Thank you!
St. Timothy's Thrift Shop is the oldest continuous mission of the parish, operated since the 1950s by the Women of St. Timothy's (WOST). Located directly across Mississippi Avenue from the St. Timothy's, the Thrift Shop offers good, clean, used clothing and small household items at minimal prices.
The Thrift Shop is a service to the community, but with the income from these recycled goods, WOST also funds its programs and outreach to a number of worthy causes, both inside and outside the parish.
The Thrift Shop began as a fund-raising rummage sale held out of the back of station wagons on Saturday mornings. Soon it was a regular enterprise, finding a home in the back room of a nearby store for a number of years. In 1979 the church used bequest funds to construct a building for the Thrift Shop and several improvements have been added in the years since.
The Thrift Shop has a part-time manager, Joselyn Willis, but most of the sorting, pricing and selling is done by volunteers. The shop is open Wednesdays and Thursdays from 3:00 to 5:00 p.m. and Fridays and Saturdays from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
