ABOUT 

The Nearly New Thrift Shop opened almost 50 years ago through the hard work and dedication of a group of women of St. Thomas Episcopal Church in Nassau Bay, Texas.  Their mission was to raise funds for deserving charities.

Today, we continue that mission with a faithful 100% volunteer staff and our loyal, generous donors and consignors.  The Shop's charitable support has included:  St. Vincent's House, The Bridge, Habitat for Humanity, Brigid's Hope, schools throughout the local and Houston community, hurricane relief, Meals on Wheels, partners in the community, and many others in need.
