  • Poverty? How do they afford so many guns and bullets? Oh right, under the veil of sanctioned secrecy they run massive drug empires and ruin our fine city every weekend with crew warfare. Where is the FBI when you need them? Clearly MPDC can’t solve this.

    • nice broad and deep knowledge of things you got there.
      glad to know that poverty is a lie. thanks for shinning the light.

      This is an inappropriate comment (anon. 11:16) for this post. This is a great organization and people should check them out. There are plenty of other posts for you to share your philosophy on poverty. I forgot to mention I even spotted a patagonia fleece!

      All the better that the proceeds go to a great group!

  • Martha’s Table is a great organization to support. And I’m a big fan of the store – good prices on gently used clothing. They also have household items donated from places like Crate and Barrel and Pottery Barn.

  • Do they accept donations? If so, do they have specific hours?

  • I walk by there all the time and never noticed there was a thrift store. I’ll have to make it a point to stop in some time!

  • I donate here frequently, but I must say, there is a woman who works there during donation hours (around 8AM on weekdays) who is just plain nasty. She is approximately 55 to 60 years old and Caucasian. Despite knowing the routine at this place (filling out paperwork, what they are willing to accept) she rudely instructs you (at a volume close to shouting) what donations you are allowed to make and how. I don’t need anyone to make me feel altruistic, but her behavior is just plain uncivil.

    • Ouch. Unless her name is Martha, they should look into finding her some other work to do. Yelling at donors is not good for repeat business, especially with other options for making donations in the area.

    • I guess you haven’t dropped off in a while Tim, the nasty lady is no longer there! The thrift store is now being run by a guy.

  • Comparatively small, but I really like their selection – got my favorite blazer, an Ann Taylor, there for $7! Also, they seem to have a steady stream of new plates and decorative items donated from Crate & Barrel.

    However, there is no changing room – women can wear a baggy skirt and try on pants underneath it, but gents presumably just have to depend on the store’s policy of allowing returns on things that can’t be tried on in the store. Also, the weekend hours are fairly meager (open only until early afternoon on Saturday, and not open Sunday).
