There's a section in the back of the store for patrons to enjoy free cookies, and coffee or to just sit and rest. The "Cookie Lady" will have fresh baked cookies for you to sample and we'll have the coffee pot going. 


Donations are accepted upstairs during store hours or on Tuesday from 9:00am to 2:00 pm.   We accept clothing, small appliances (coffee pots, toasters, etc.) and all kinds of household goods, linens, shoes, children's toys, puzzles, craft items, books, and jewelry.


We do not accept large appliances, furniture, television sets, computers, typewriters, text books, technical books, or exercise equipment.  Our basement is not large enough for us to handle big items.  The entrance is on the west side of the building.    We do ask that donations not be left outside the building at any time.   

New items are added weekly.   Mount Joy's Fourth Friday will also be our "Special Sale Day" both inside the store and outside (weather permitting).  So stop in and see us.

We have a RADA display in the store.  RADA is the stainless steel cutlery that has been popular for years and sold in churches as fundraisers.  There are many items for you to look at and some are in stock so you can buy them right away.  For others, we'll put in your order for you and notify you when it comes in.  The turnaround time is usually about two weeks.
