Emilie’s Thrift Shop is operated by the women of the church. Any revenues generated by the shop help support missions of the United Methodist Women (UMW). Mission donations are dispersed both locally and abroad.
The thrift shop carries a large supply of men’s, women’s, children’s, and infant’s clothing, outerwear and shoes. We also carry soft goods such as linens and towels. The last week of each month we have a basket sale, whereby shoppers can fill one of our baskets and pay only $4.00!
- Wednesdays, 5:30 PM to 8:00 PM
- Thursdays, 9:00 AM to 12:30 PM
The store will be closed 10/10, 10/11, 10/17, 10/18 so that the staff can put out the fall & winter items.
We are located across the street from the county homeless shelter on New Falls Road. Guests at the shelter receive 2 full outfits each, including outerwear. We also have numerous people come to our shop in search of free and/or affordable items. Following our Community Dinner (Shared Meal) each month we invite our guests to choose a few items from the shop so that they will be more comfortable in their situations.
If you know of someone who has had a fire or otherwise fallen on emergency hard times, please send them to us. We let them shop for free.
If you’re cleaning out closets & drawers, please consider donating your clean, gently used, or new unwanted items to our thrift shop. We ask that items be clean and not too heavily worn. You can drop them off on Wednesdays, 5:30 – 8 PM and Thursdays, 9 AM – 12:30 PM, or call 215-945-5502 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org to make other arrangements.
