On July 12, 2007, the ribbon was cut and we opened our doors to the public.
Operated by the White Stone United Methodist Women of Faith, the Thrift Shop has a long history in White Stone. Originally opened in 1963, it was moved several times before reaching its present location on Methodist Church Road.
Today the Thrift Shop is a vital part of the community, offering good and serviceable used clothing for all ages, household articles and appliances, books, VCR tapes, old phonograph records, videotapes, and many other interesting items.
The profits from the Thrift Shop do not go back to the Church but are used to help with Mission work in our local area and surrounding communities. (The Mission of The United Methodist Women is to support Women, children, and youth.)
In addition, scholarships are given each year to students graduating from Lancaster High School. Help is given to local college students who need financial assistance for purchasing books, and contributions are made to various state, national and international agencies.
Thrift Shop receipts have averaged from $25,000 to $30,000 per year for the last eight years and seem to have skyrocketed since the Pandemic began.
Stop by the Thrift Shop and see what is available. You just might find a book you have wanted to read, a scarf that just matches your new outfit or some other useful item at a reasonable price.
We are always looking for volunteers to staff our Thrift Shop. Volunteer hours are 10 a.m.-1:00 p.m. or 1:00 to 4:00 p.m. Please stop by the Thrift Shop or give us a call if you have a few hours to spare and would like to help us help our community and other mission projects.
