Since 1951, The Society has operated a thrift shop to raise vital funds to fulfill our mission. The Society Boutique continues to be an important part of The Society's fundraising activities. Recently, we rebranded the thrift shop as "The Society Boutique," with the same location and operations. The spacious boutique, located on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, features a great selection of donated new and gently used women’s and men’s designer clothing, accessories, jewelry, home goods, furniture, and books.

Please consider making a tax-deductible donation.

Special sales events and pop-up shops are an exciting way for The Society Boutique to present fresh merchandise, from the best of vintage and new fashions, accessories, home furnishings, and one of a kind items. When The Society Boutique presents a pop-up shops, our partners feature an outstanding selection of new merchandise and significant discounts off retail.

Past pop-up shops have included collaborations with Madeline Weinrib, Strand Books, Decades, J. McLaughlin, and Park Avenue Garage Sale. A unique philanthropic and educational collaboration was introduced in 2013 when the Fashion Institute of Technology hosted a Pop-Up Shop on their 7th Avenue campus, designed and executed by the FIT students with all proceeds going to support The Society of MSK.
