The Once Again Shop In Penn Yan –


I am fortunate to live in a relatively small town just outside of the Village Of Penn Yan in Yates County ( On the North end of Keuka Lake ).  It may be small but the people are large at heart.  This community comes together to assist many underprivileged families through clothing, housing and food.  One of the assets the community offers is “The Once Again Shop” a well-known thrift shop in Penn Yan.  Stroll through the  doors and you walk into a treasure chest.  Everything inside of this building has been donated through the generosity of many.  Browsers can find clothing, furniture, knick-knacks and everything in between all priced quite reasonably.  In fact buyers can fill up a plastic garbage bag with unpriced clothes, all for $5.00.  If the buyer needs linens, then a bag will cost $6.oo.  It has become the shopping place for many in need and the treasure trove for those looking for something they can leave with as a “great find”.

To keep the place running, many ,many volunteers are required.  There are sorters, cashiers, and even those that try to fix some of the items that are dropped off.  There are even administrative volunteers that make sure there are enough volunteers for each day.

The money that is raised is split up between the various churches in the community, so that they can best serve their respective members.

The shop is open from Wednesday through Sat from 10 Am until 4 PM. Saturdays during the summer the shop closes at 1PM.  Items can be dropped off on Mon and Tues preferably and for those donating large items, a phone call is preferred first.   They are always looking for volunteers.

100 East Elm Street  Penn Yan, NY 14527
(315) 536-3620

 If you are in the area vacationing and looking for something to do, stop in.  You might be surprised at what you can find. It is also a great place to leave those items you no longer need.  Re-use and re-purpose will allow someone else to gain some enjoyment from those pieces.
