The Boutique at 198
Located inside the Thrift Shop, The Boutique at 198 is a section of women’s and men’s upscale merchandise, including shoes, handbags, clothing, jewelry, and accessories. Thrift Shop customers can shop high fashion for low prices while contributing to the mission of Beverly Bootstraps.
Gently used and in-season clothing, household items and décor, furniture, and books are all items that can be donated to our Thrift Shop. Please drop off your donations in our parking lot at 198 Rantoul Street only during our donation hours* of Mon-Fri, 9:30 am – 4 pm and Sat, 10 am – 3 pm. Please do not leave donations when we are not open.
Disposal of items we cannot accept:
Massachusetts has a waste ban regulation in effect. We, unfortunately, cannot accept items that are stained, ripped, or overly worn. Please check to make sure that all items you are donating are clean and in good condition. Having to sort and dispose of items that are stained, ripped, or overly worn often takes time and money away from the important programs and services we provide to the community.
