The Village Thrift Shop is again accepting non-clothing items for donations.

Now housed in the former Community Store in Community Square, the island “department store” is open Thursday, Friday and Saturday from noon to 4 p.m.

Gael Hawkins, one of the managers, said the store has a lot of clothing and no place to store new clothing donations, but other household items can be donated.

“We’ve moved a lot of it but more has to sell,” she said. The clothing now is mostly transitional season items, and they have to make room for summer clothing.

Hawkins stressed that no donations are to be left on the porch.

Since the shop reopened in March it has done well.

“Everyone’s been great in supporting us – locals and tourists,” Hawkins said.
