About This Location

Operated by the Atlantic General Hospital Auxiliary

Located in the Ames Shopping Center, the thrift shop accepts gently used clothing and household items and sells them at deep discounts. Anyone is welcome, from shoppers looking for a real bargain to those who are unable to buy clothes at regular price.

The thrift shop was a dream of the Atlantic General Hospital Auxiliary's members. It took months of planning and hard work to create. The volunteers visited other thrift stores to get more ideas about what does and does not work, and began renovating one of the shopping center’s storefronts, formerly a Laundromat.

In late November 2005, a team of volunteers began to transform the old Laundromat into the boutique it is today. In December of 2005, the thrift shop began accepting donations, and by late January, they were in business.

For more information about acceptable donated items or for more information, please call the thrift shop at (410) 629-1447.
