Giving Back to the Community

Califon United Methodist Church is a historic sanctuary welcoming everyone. The Top O'th Barn Thrift Shop is our mission that provides funds that allow us to serve community members and organizations in need.

Visit the thrift shop on Saturdays 10am-2pm.

Donations accepted only on Saturdays between 1pm and 3pm. Do NOT drop off items when the Thrift Shop is closed. See a volunteer before donating. 

Shop with Us

Our store is currently open on Saturdays 10am-2pm. We are seeking volunteers please email us at [email protected] and we will send you the application.

See the list below for the type of items that we accept. Please limit donation size to two containers or two kitchen-sized garbage bags so we do not delay you while we sort your items. Gently used, clean clothing, and new clothing are acceptable. A number of our customers are younger so current fashion wear for men and women is encouraged.

We do not accept car seats, high chairs, cribs, baby toys, or recalled items. You will return home with these items.  

While we love books, we do not have space for textbooks. Textbooks can be left in the book donation bin across the street from the train station in Califon. Must have a ISBN bar code
