It is only through your donations that the Westminster Thrift Shop is able to continue its mission. We are always in need of women's and men's seasonal clothing, shoes, and accessories, housewares, home decor, and small pieces of furniture.  Please see our NEW DONATION GUIDELINES. We ask that you make an appointment beforehand by calling Karen Koepke, shop manager, 610-692-9298 or contact her by email. Why:there may be times when we have a large inventory of certain items, therefore our storage capabilities would be limited.  Thank you for your understanding.
