Save the Date: CCH Thrift Shop Reopening March 1Time to Declutter and Donate

Above: Noreen Arsenault, left, and Judy Adams from the Cape Cod Hospital Auxiliary Thrift Shop accept donations at the Stevens Street gated entrance.

With spring on the horizon, it’s the perfect opportunity to go through your closets, drawers and cabinets and clean out unwanted items. Perhaps you bought a dress you only wore a few times or own a necklace that’s been tucked away in your jewelry box for years.

The Cape Cod Hospital Auxiliary Thrift Shop in Hyannis, the Falmouth Hospital Auxiliary Thrift Shop in Falmouth and the VNA Thriftique shop in Yarmouth are all excellent options for donating gently used clothing, jewelry and household items, such as china, lamps and dishware. The Auxiliary thrift shops in Hyannis and Falmouth contribute their proceeds to supporting the two hospitals, and the VNA Thriftique's income supports the many programs provided by the VNA of Cape Cod. Below is additional information on hours of operation, donations and volunteer information.

The Cape Cod Hospital Auxiliary Thrift Shop

Located at 690 Main Street (corner of Main and Stevens Street) in Hyannis, the CCH thrift shop is planning to reopen March 1. In preparation, the shop welcomes your gently-worn women’s and men’s clothing, handbags, shoes, jewelry, artwork and household items that are in good condition for resale. Due to limited space, only small furniture and small working appliances can be accepted.

But please no children’s clothing, electronics or furnishings.

Donations and hours of operation

The shop is open 9 a.m. - 3 p.m. Tuesday - Saturday. The shop's manager, Lisa Brockney, says that they ask callers to make an appointment to drop off donations between Monday - Friday, 10 a.m.-2 p.m., but walk-ins are accepted. For questions, call 508-398-2759 during open hours.
