Curiosity Shop

Every year, the Soroptimist Club in Seaford contributes to community activities and organizations. Those contributions are possible because the club’s thrift store, the Nellie G. Allen Curiosity Shop.

The shop recently celebrated the tenth anniversary of its opening on Middleford Road, next to Soroptimist Park. Prior to moving there, the store was located on High Street.

The store is so popular because of the quality of items that it sells at an affordable price. The staff carefully sorts through everything that is donated, to make sure that each item is suitable to be sold.

The Club appreciates the donations that it receives from the community and encourages people to donate only items that can be resold. We do not accept furniture or large appliances.

The drop-off location for donations is on the west side of the building. When the store is open, people are welcome to take items in through the door at that location of the building.

The shop provides all the financial resources needed to the clubs foundation so that its club members do not need to conduct any fundraisers. It gives people a place to buy clothing and other items that are affordable. It provides jobs in the community and it provides people another recycling option.
