The Thrift Shop
The Thrift Shop is an ecumenical outreach ministry established in partnership with Trinity Parish Church and has operated continually since 1981. It is co-managed and staffed by volunteers of both Trinity Parish and Seattle First Baptist. Originally housed in the basement of Trinity Parish Church, since 2001 the shop has been located on the corner of 8th Avenue and Cherry Street in the former Parish rectory.
The Thrift Shop provides free clothing and household items to the community through a voucher system, as well as offering an attractive shopping experience for thrift shop devotees. On average, 65 persons a week are served through the voucher system. Income from the Thrift Shop is used to support nine downtown social service agencies, as well as both sponsoring churches. The shop is a flourishing enterprise that continues to meet the needs of the immediate community and beyond.
The Thrift Shop is open from 10:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. four days a week (Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday). Donations may be delivered to the shop during regular business hours or on Tuesday between 10:00 a.m. and 12 noon. When the shop is closed, donations may be left at the either church office.
Those interested in volunteering at The Thrift Shop are invited to contact the Thrift Shop Manager, Carol Webb, at 206.264.1698.
