The Shoppe will be open Monday- Saturday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

All sales are final; no refunds or exchanges will be permitted.  Items must be paid for online.  Curbside pickup only.

Our  merchandise is value priced (from $1 and up). We offer gently used clothing for infants, men, women and children. We also have a wide variety of shoes, china, household items, small appliances, collectibles, books, toys, and giftware.
