The Thrift Shop is currently open on Saturdays only. Our current season has begun and will run through May of 2024. We are only open 10 months out of the year due to our store only being operational with volunteer service availability. During operating hours only do we accept donations, the church office can not accept donations outside of operation hours, we do not have the space to store items. Please consider reaching out to one of our other local neighborhood shops to drop off donations. Please call the church office at 650-342-1482 for any additional information.

For over 60 years the St. Matthew Thrift Shop has served the community by selling donated items at affordable prices and offering a friendly atmosphere while enjoying a cup of coffee and cookie.

The Thrift Shop donates funds to local and regional outreach. The Thrift shop is staffed by 20 plus volunteers from the parish and the community.
The shop continues to receive wonderful donations of gently used clothing, jewelry, household goods and children’s toys from estate sales, our parish, the Day School and the wider community throughout the year. THANK YOU!

The Thrift Shop is open from only August to May annually, and closes the season with the very popular $1 sale. We are closed over the summer months of June and July. Current operating hours are Saturdays from 11:00 am to 2:00 pm.
