How does it work?
It's simple; show up between 10 am and 1 pm and look through clothes, shoes, books, costumes, toys, and gear and take home what you you can use! We will have some bags on site, but we recommend bringing some shopping bags with you! We will also have some volunteers on site to help carry items to the car if needed. We just ask that you do not take things you or your friends/family can use in the near future, and do not resell items prior to getting use out of it.
Do I need to be a member to shop?
Nope! This event is open to the community. We do have some private, members-only shopping hours before the event opens to the public.
Do I need to donate to shop?
Nope! We appreciate all donations as that is what makes this event so successful, but they are not required.
Is it really free?
Yes! More Than Mom is a fully volunteer ran non-profit of moms looking to give back to our community! We also have more children's things than we know what to do with :)
How can I donate throughout the year?
More than Mom hosts 2 seasonal swaps a year and we do collections about 1 month in advance of the events. More than Mom also accepts cash donations to help us host events like this and other events like our annual 4th of July Parade and Community Egg Hunt. You can donate on our website mtmom.org.
If you are looking to donate directly to Lydia's closet, donations can be dropped off at any time in the small gray donation bin, located
next to the large used clothing drop off shed in the parking lot behind St. Andrew’s Church. You can also schedule a time to drop off donations by calling 413 237-1581 or 413 567-5901.
