This spacious thrift shop on the Upper East Side of Manhattan is known for being the beneficiary of the highest quality donations of designer and vintage clothing, home furnishings, accessories, children's clothing, books, and artwork. It holds three much anticipated "openings" each year - spring, fall, and year-end holiday season.
For more than 55 years, the Thrift Shop has been a vital part of The Society's fundraising program, and has been at it's current location for over 20 years. Through sales of new and gently used designer merchandise, the Thrift Shop provides support for The Society's patient care, research and education programs at the Center.
