Who doesn’t love to entertain? With the holidays just around the corner, you may want to stop by the Discovery Shop in Chappaqua. This is an upscale thrift “boutique” that donates 100% of its proceeds to the American Cancer Society. It carries everything from fine china, crystal, art, furniture, bric-a-brac, and so much more. They also carry new and very gently used men’s and women’s clothing. All items in this shop are in pristine condition. Not to mention that this is the only American Cancer Society Discovery Shop in all of New York State (California has 40 Discovery Shops). That is why I HIGHLY recommend visiting this store, I promise you will not regret it. 🙂 🙂
It is obviously in an affluent area so the merchandise is top notch and the prices are a little high to reflect that 🙂 —- BUT you are getting exceptional merchandise. It seems that the Discovery Shop is the recipient of some truly amazing donations. You could see this from going through the clothing racks, it is amazing. Everything is incredibly clean too. 🙂 🙂 🙂
I thought they had some rather fine art work as well. So many timeless art pieces hang on the wall. There were some great posters too. Toys and small appliances are listed on the website but I was so excited doing my thing that I might have walked right past these items. 😦
I will also tell you that this shop is all run by volunteers. They are one nicer than the other and so sweet and helpful. They care about their mission and it shows in their work. Visiting the Discovery Shop is well worth the effort and a must see.
