The Second Time Around Shop

Over 40 Years of serving the community by providing quality clothing and household items at affordable prices!


* * * What’s New:  The shop will re-open on September 4th. After a summer break, it is completely re-stocked with bargains. * * *


Open on Wednesdays, from 10 am to 2 pm, September through June, the Second Time Around Shop offers gently used items at reasonable prices.

We have nearly 1000 square feet jam-packed with bargains. On a typical Wednesday, the shop serves 20 – 50 customers from the neighborhood, and up to three antique dealers. A bilingual local pre-school group also makes a quick visit every week to shop and receive a free book.

Everyone is welcome to donate items and, of course, to shop.


Shop:  There is plenty of off-street parking. The Shop entrance is near the back left corner of the church building.

Donate:  Items may be left in the church foyer (narthex) on Sunday mornings or may be dropped off at other arranged times. All articles must be clean and in good repair. All electrical appliances are tested. Nothing is taken on consignment, helping to keep our prices low. Tax donation slips are available on request and ready in minutes for the donor.
