BHC THRIFT SHOP
History of A BLOSSOMING MISSION
Over a quarter of a century ago a few ladies of the Baiting Hollow Church received permission from our Church Council to try and start a Thrift Shop. What began with a few tables of knick knacks has blossomed into our Parish Hall and entry way and a small “barn” full of clothing, shoes, accessories, toys, jewelry, household linens, kitchen ware, small appliances and even some furniture. All the material is donated by our members, friends and neighbors locally and throughout Long Island and even by some who live as far away as Connecticut and New York City. For these donations we are most thankful.
The Thrift Shop is directed and staffed by volunteers from the church and community. The shop is open between the week of St. Patrick’s Day in March and the week before Thanksgiving in November. Times of operation are Thursdays and Saturdays between 10 AM and 3 PM.
We are always grateful for donations of gently used and clean clothing, as well as household goods and the like. If you should wish to donate, please do so during the days and hours the thrift shop is open.
All income from the Thrift Shop is used toward our yearly budgeted expenses, including missions.
