Changes to Services Due to COVID-19

Due to San Mateo County’s COVID-19 health regulations, the Thrift Shop will remain closed until further notice.

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 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 Thirft Shop is open from the middle of August and closes the 2nd week June with the very popular $1 sale. When the shop is open, operating hours are: Thursday, Friday, and Saturday from 11:00 am to 2:00 pm.

Charities Receiving Outreach Proceeds

The Thrift Shop has made its home in the basement of St. Matthew’s since 1949 and resells donated items at a very low price. Our operation provides the principle source of income for the League for Service, which is disbursed to local, regional and national charities. The shop is staffed entirely by volunteers, most of whom are also parishioners. We welcome donations of gently used clothing, jewelry, small furniture items, household goods and children’s toys.

If you would like to volunteer at the shop or have questions about donating items, please contact Diana Dykes, Thrift Shop Manager, at thriftshop@episcopalstmatthew.org​.
