Our Thrift Shop

Our Thrift Shop is a community thrift shop in Westwood, NJ, sponsored by the Art School at Old Church. The store provides affordable quality clothing, shoes and accessories, housewares, books, children's items, works of art and more. Proceeds from the store benefit the Art School at Old Church in Demarest, NJ.

The thrift shop is run by an active group of dedicated volunteers. In addition to working shifts at the retail shop, volunteers can often provide assistance from their own homes. Helpers are always needed to iron clothes and other items, polish silver, measure fabric, sort items, and fill toy bags, among other jobs. The shop is always seeking volunteers who can commit at least three and a half hours a week to a list of various tasks.

Our Thrift Shop accepts donations of gently-used items. To make a tax-deductible donation (or for more info about volunteering), please contact our thrift shop manager, Vivien Woodford.

Art Education Outreach

Everyone can benefit from the opportunity to experience the arts in a meaningful way. We believe that the arts can keep a community vibrant and alive. By facilitating students' creative means of expression, the arts can improve their quality of life, encourage their creativity, and beautify the world around them.

About our Outreach Program

We offer a variety of exciting art classes tailored to meet the cognitive and physical needs of individuals of all ages and skill levels. Our outreach classes are taught by professional artists - members of our esteemed faculty. Generally, our classes for children 7 to 13 years old are an hour and a half long; sessions for 14-year-olds through senior-age adults can run for up to two hours.
