Hollyhock Thrift Shop
There is something nice to wear for everyone in the family at the Hollyhock Thrift Shop.
The shop is located in the basement of the Hampstead Public Library and is open all year. It features good quality, clean, gently used seasonal clothing for men, women and children.
There are half price sales at the end of every season!
The Thrift Shop cannot accept furniture, utensils, books (but the library may be interested in them), or knick-knacks. There just isn’t space for anything except good, clean clothing for men, women and children. All such donations are gratefully received.
You may bring your donations to the shop during its regular open hours, Tuesdays from 9AM to 1PM. and Saturdays from 9AM to 12 Noon, or bring them to the front desk of the library if you can't make it when the Thrift Shop is open for business. If you've never visited the Hollyhock Thrift Shop you're in for a surprise as you check out the very high quality clothing in stock at incredibly low prices.
It is one of the primary fund raising efforts of the Friends of the Hampstead Public Library. The proceeds are used to support library programs and to help finance library purchases that are not covered in the budget.
In addition to the Thrift Shop, the Friends have a biennial Holiday Auction in November, the other major fund raiser for the organization. There also is a Holiday House Tour every other year. They also sell book bags with a picture of the Story Garden, created by the Hampstead Garden Club, on the front.
If you're not already a member of the Friends of the Hampstead Public Library, pick up a brochure at the front desk at the library or download a membership form and help the Friends support the library and provide services to the community by joining.
If you would like to help out by volunteering in the Thrift Shop please call Elaine David at the library (329-6411) on Monday evenings.
