Welcome to The NFSB Shop

The NFSB Shop, located at 169 Chestnut Street in Nutley, seeks to redefine thrifting. The light filled space maximizes store functions, and importantly too, provides an enjoyable experience for those who are browsing and buying. The venue enables expanded and diversified selections: upscale seasonal clothes and wearable accessories, an array of household items, small furniture pieces, and vintage or hard to find inventory from the practical (such as stemware and lamps) to the whimsical (such as costume jewelry & holiday decorations) are available. The Shop welcomes new and gently used items that we are proud to offer and our patrons are pleased to purchase.


Due to Covid restrictions on space and volunteer efforts, The Shop is requesting that the community be mindful of constraints to
1). Limit the quantity of donations at a given time and
2). Consider the quality of the donations. Children’s toys & books cannot be accepted at this time. We gratefully accept gently used items in order to maintain the Shop’s high standards of merchandise offerings.

Donating Dos and Donts

169 Chestnut StreetThe 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, and its doors have been open ever since. 

  • 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!
