WE ACCEPT DONATIONS DURING THE SHOPS OPENING HOURS: Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays—12 noon to 4 p.m. Saturdays—10 a.m. to 4 p.m. 

ACT II thrives on the generosity of its donors and is committed to selling quality items at thrifty prices. In keeping with that standard, and in consideration of space, labor, and recycling/refuse costs, we ask that our donors adhere to the following guidelines:

  • All items must be clean and in good repair and are subject to approval.
  • Please, no chipped or cracked glassware, china, or bric-a-brac. Beverage glasses must be in sets of four of a kind or more.
  • Books must be newer than 10 years and in good condition.
  • All small appliances and electronics must be no older than 5 years and in excellent working condition.
  • Games, toys, and puzzles must be complete and with their box intact—no missing pieces!
  • All clothing, shoes, and sports equipment must be clean, current, and gently used—no stains, please. Seasonal clothing accepted year-round. Kindly remove hangers from clothing before donating.

“If you wouldn’t give it to a friend, it wouldn’t work for us.”

All donations are tax deductible, and receipts are available upon request. Questions? Please call us at ACT II: 203.245.2815
