Elaine David Thrift Shop at the Hampstead Public Library

Regular hours: Tuesdays and Saturdays from 9AM to 1PM 

There is something nice to wear for everyone in the family at the Elaine David Thrift Shop. The shop is located in the basement of the Hampstead Public Library and is open all year. It features good quality, clean, gently used seasonal clothing for men, women and children. Check out the half-price sales at the end of every season.

The Thrift Shop cannot accept furniture, utensils, or books. There just isn’t space for anything except good, clean clothing for men, women and children. All such donations are
gratefully received.

You may bring your donations to the shop during its regular open hours, Tuesday
s from 9AM to 1PM. and Saturdays from 9AM to 1PM, or bring them to the front desk of the library if you can't make it when the Thrift Shop is open for business. If you've never visited 
the Thrift Shop you're in for a surprise as you check out the very high quality clothing in stock at incredibly low prices. 

It is the primary fund raising effort of the Friends of the Hampstead Public Library. The proceeds are used to support library programs and to help finance library purchases that are not covered in the budget.
