Even as Spring hasn’t been that enthusiastic about arriving in New England, the volunteers of The Turnover Shop have been energetic in emptying the storage racks in our back room and bringing our long-awaited collection of Spring fashions out onto the sales floor. Our donors and consignors have been similarly inspired, and gradually our last winter jackets are making way for shorts and cotton skirts, golf shirts and sandals. Spring has arrived – at The Turnover Shop, at least!
In addition to seasonal merchandise, we currently have a wide array of household items, jewelry, quality purses and shoes, and unusual home décor selections. The item we don’t have might very well be arriving tomorrow.
As you are inspired to accomplish some of your own Spring cleaning in your home closets, please remember The Turnover Shop as a convenient and local recipient of items you no longer need. We have no salaried employees, are staffed entirely by volunteers, and our profits all go to charities that benefit education and health in our community. As a nonprofit organization, we will also give you a signed receipt for your donations.
Though we often joke that it is impossible to walk into The Turnover Shop with a bag of donations without finding something to buy while you are there, this ready exchange of merchandise is the reason we have been successful for over seventy years. Thanks to our neighbors, we continually receive valuable, useful, and often intriguing items to sell. And thanks to an ever-widening base of customers, most of those items find a new home. We are grateful to all of you who are appreciative of the presence of our small shop in Wilton, and support our efforts.
