THE “FRIENDLY CORNER THRIFT SHOP”
In January of 2015, our church decided to establish a thrift shop with the dual purpose of providing inexpensive household items for the community and to provide funds for the church’s benevolent activities. Church members embraced the project and converted a large relatively dreary basement room into a bright, cheery and very attractive shop. All merchandise is donated by church members or by people from the community. The shop has a great variety of household items and the inventory is constantly changing as new items are added. Recently we expanded our inventory to include women’s and children’s clothes.
The shop is open 9:30 to 12:30 on Friday and Saturday.
We welcome donations of household items and children’s and women’s clothes. Donations can either be dropped off at the church or we will come to your home. We welcome leftovers from tag sales and estate sales. We provide a tax deduction form. Unfortunately, due to limited space we are not in a position to accept TV’s, computer, steros and large upholstered furniture. Drop offs at the church (10 Chapel St, Wilbraham) can be made Tuesday through Saturday, from 9:00 to noon. For pickups at your home, please contact the church at 596-4397 or Sandy Swain at 596-6358.
We maintain a Friendly Corner Thrift Shop Facebook page which we constantly update with new offerings and news about the shop. We encourage you to visit us on a regular basis on Facebook. Simply click on this link to be connected to our Facebook page.
