Thrift Mart is a church-wide community rummage sale providing quality merchandise at bargain prices. From clothing to housewares and everything in between, you’re sure to find just what you’re looking for.
Thrift Mart happens once a year in September--with donations accepted one month ahead of each sale. Recognizing the needs of our community, Thrift Mart is one way we reach out to help. Sponsored by theUnited Methodist Womenof St. Paul’s, our profits go to meet our mission pledge and to support our local church and community projects. It is a win-win project for missions, the community, and our own homes. Good food is available at reasonable prices during the sale.
Donations are accepted, Drive-up drop-off is available at the 2nd Avenue entrance:
Mondays (8:30-10:30 am): August 22, 29, & September 12
Saturdays (8:30-10:30 am): August 27, September 3 & 10

For high-value items and collectibles, the church now also has the online SuperStore. So feel free to bring ALL of your donations to St. Paul’s and know that we will make every effort to sell them for their optimal value for missions.
On the second day of the sale at 11:00 am, the Big Bag sale begins. We sell a garbage bag for $1.00 and customers fill them to the brim. (Free bags are available for those who cannot afford the dollar).
