When, What & How to Donate Items

Please call (631) 324-1370 before bringing in your donations.

Donations are accepted Tuesday – Saturday / 10 am – 3:30 pm.

The LVIS Thrift Shop first opened in the 1950’s and continues to be the area’s best source for gently used items. Revenue from this shop provides major funding for LVIS projects which range from care of East Hampton trees to our ambitious scholarship program.

If you have a donation, please help us in the following ways:

  • Ensure items are clean and in good condition.

  • Please separate items between books, clothing and household uses and, if possible, separate and label men’s and women’s clothing.

  • Furniture donations: Please CONTACT US IN ADVANCE at (631) 324-1370. Furniture must be previewed before accepted (send photos by email to LVISBarnEH@gmail.com).
