When it comes to spending your hard-earned money responsibly and wisely, few options are better than a local thrift store. Most are locally owned and operated, so more of the money you spend with them stays in the area. If you're looking for ways to save money while boosting your local economy, here are a few thrift and consignment shops worth checking out near our apartments in Conshohocken, PA.
Bryn Mawr Hospital Thrift Shop
This volunteer-ran thrift shop donates all proceeds to the Bryn Mawr Hospital. Any piece of furniture, clothing, toy, book, or other miscellaneous item purchased here can potentially save a life. The thrift shop is a part of the Bryn Mawr Hospital Foundation, a philanthropic effort dedicated to sustaining the hospital beyond what patient revenue alone could provide. If you're looking to get rid of furniture and clothes as opposed to buying, the thrift shop will let you sell by consignment in limited quantities.
Marian's Attic is one of two thrift stores that supports the Laurel's House charity. Buying jewelry, furniture, clothing, and accessories here funds the never-ending fight against domestic violence. Reviewers of Marian's Attic are fond of the clearance rack, where clothing can be purchased for $2. If you're trying to save lives and money at the same time, this is definitely the place to do it.
Close to the Courts
The Courts at Spring Mill is located less than five miles away from both of these stores. Residents of the Courts don't even have to go out of their way to support local philanthropic efforts. In addition to these great thrift stores, you're also close to Whole Foods, Septa rail access, and the Schuylkill River Trail. Contact us and find about all of the great spots just around the corner.
