A Wistaria Thrift Shop Committee comprised of SMWC members coordinates all activities for this fundraising enterprise. All proceeds go toward funding our Philanthropic work.

Wistaria Thrift Shop is a local treasure chest for anyone who enjoys shopping and browsing an eclectic mix of inventory.  Located on the south of Essick House, adjacent to the parking lot at the rear of the property, Wistaria Thrift Shop is always stocked with a variety of items.  A steady trickle of generous donations keep Wistaria stocked with clothing and accessories for women, men, children and infants, household items, toys, electronics and more.

 Every shopper should take a peek inside “Uncle Bill’s House,” the small separate structure just outside of the main Wistaria entrance, where shoppers can find other odds and ends, including tools, luggage, small furniture pieces and more.

 Wistaria accepts donations of clean and gently-used items, preferably during business hours.  However, we are not able to arrange for pick-up of donated items.  Unfortunately, we DO NOT have the space to accept, store or display donations of furniture (couches, beds, love seats, dressers, etc.),
