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.
