Thrift Shop


The Basement on First Street, also known as St. John’s Thrift Shop, is open on Wednesday and Saturday mornings, 9:00 a.m.-12:00 noon. 

Offering a wide and unpredictable assortment of clothing, jewelry, household items, and other exotica, the Thrift Shop is a favorite stop for Sage students and other thrifty neighbors in Troy, Watervliet, and beyond. All proceeds are donated by the Thrift Shop to Troy-area ministries and organizations serving those in need.

The Thrift Shop is also a place where anonymous people become known, needs are met and friendships are formed. Used clothing isn’t the only thing we see redeemed at the Thrift Shop. If you’re interested in knowing and loving your neighbors in Troy, then the Basement on First Street is a great place to serve. For more information, contact Pat at
