It’s that time of year again and you may have already begun what we like to call “the great closet clean-out”. This is when we usually dig through our closets and ask ourselves “when’s the last time I wore this?” and “why did I buy this, again?” Well, the ShoreBread team is here to help and we have a list of local groups to which you can donate said items! These shops collect gently used clothing items for men, women and children in addition to accessories and small household items. The sale of these items benefit local organizations so that they may continue to provide much needed services in our community.
Atlantic General Thrift Shop

Donations may be accepted at the rear door of the Thrift Shop if you are not able to drop off your donated items during shop hours. They accept clothing for men, women and children in addition to shoes, accessories, jewelry, small household items and more.
