We have moved things back into our wonderfully renovated warehouse space on Webster Road. This will enable us to bring more of what you love to find at the shop. Our space has been designed specifically to help us be more efficient and be able to find the best of what we have just for you, our loyal customers.
AND So...we're feeling FALLISH.. how about you?? We bringing over new things almost daily and all our spring and summer clothing is 50% off.
“Silver and gold, silver and gold, everyone wishes for silver and gold” so the song says but not so much anymore… forever treasures to some are signs of times long past and out of date to others. Maybe you have some sterling silver or silverplate or old gold jewelry (even if broken) that has been sitting around taking up space. You’re amazed your kids don’t want it…. silverware, teapots, candlesticks!! SCHIP (Shelburne, Charlotte, Hinesburg Interfaith Projects) Resale shop would love to have your treasures if no one else in your family wants them.
It will help us improve our bottom line and our bottom line is what allows us to give away thousands of dollars a year to people in our own communities who are in need. As you can imagine, there will be so much more need as we enter into the cold months of winter and SCHIP can use your help! Please look around and see if you have some unwanted silver, gold or even silverplate that you would be willing to donate to SCHIP and give us a call if you can’t get it to the shop yourself. We will come and pick it up.
The shop is located on Rt 7 (in the distinctive yellow building), next to the Town Offices with parking in the rear. It is open M-F, 10-5 and Saturday, 10-4. Call Scarlett Ober at (802) 233-8178 with any questions.

We've been back in swing for a long time but we still observe rules for safety. Not all is the same but most things such as high-quality merchandise and friendly service will be ever-present.
Donations will be accepted with these variations. Two small or medium-sized boxes or bags at a time, please. Donations should be placed on the wooden bench on the porch. If you would like a tax receipt, just pop into the store and we will be happy to provide that.
Recently, we are again asking our customers to wear masks as we wish to be more careful with the spread of the Delta variant.
Please read the signage at the door before entering. Those signs are mandated by the state and basically ask that you not enter if you are not feeling well or if you have been in contact with anyone diagnosed with COVID-19.
