Ms. Kowalski was the winner of a beautiful Coach handbag as part of NFSB’s first Thrift Shop Raffle. According to the Raffle’s rules, patrons are eligible for a raffle ticket with a $10 or more Thrift Shop purchase. Artie-Lee Kowalski has been a patron of the NFSB Thrift Shop for over 9 years. She commented, “I am always at the NFSB Thrift Shop. I love the prices. The volunteers are dolls and they are always so helpful. I was thrilled. I can’t wait to tell everyone how I got my beautiful Coach bag” Eileen Painter, executive director, stated, “It is our responsibility to secure the best price as possible for all of our donated items. All of the proceeds from the Thrift Shop support NFSB’s programs and services. However, we thought it was important for all of our patrons to have an opportunity to take home something wonderful. That is how we came up with the idea of the Thrift Shop Raffle. We look forward to having another during the holiday season.”

Thrift ShopThe Thrift Shop was opened by the Board of Trustees in 1933 and from the outset was intended to both meet the needs of families in the community, and to be a source of funding for the Bureau. In late 1930’s, the Thrift Shop closed its doors due in part, to the economic downturn of the Great Depression. In 1949 it was re-activated. It is currently located at 172 Chestnut Street, Nutley, NJ 07110.

  • The Nutley Family Service Bureau is opened to the general public. It is staffed by a dedicated core of volunteers. It runs on gently used donated items. Merchandise is focused on family needs, therefore children’s items such as toys and clothing are accepted in addition to a variety of goods, such as adult clothing including shoes and accessories, household items and small appliances. The location cannot accommodate furniture or appliances.
  • For health and safety reasons, we cannot accept:
    – Child gear:(such as car seats, cribs, high chairs, strollers).
    – Electronics:(such as TVs, VCRs, PCs, monitors, printers
    – Medical Devices: commodes, crutches, walkers
  • 100% of the funds raised from the NFSB Thrift Shop directly support the services and programs offered at the Nutley Family Service Bureau. Thank you for your patronage!
