Welcome to Saint Ann's Nearly New Shop!

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic:

The Nearly New Shop has decided to TEMPORARILY close, with an anticipated re-open date of April 22, 2020.


The decision to act quickly and early was made out of love and concern for our customers, consignors, volunteers, employees, St. Ann’s Parish and community.


Check back here for updates. Thank you for your understanding and support!

Our anticipated reopen date is Wednesday, April 22. Check back here for updates. 

Please join us in welcoming our new Manager and Assistant Managers. Read about them here.

It’s hard to believe that the Nearly New Shop has been at its present location at the corner of Mile Creek Road and Route 156 in Old Lyme, Connecticut for over 50 years. Fun fact: the Nearly New Shop is among the oldest continuously operating resale shops in the United States.

Our mission is to lead by example, in communion with God and community. Just as Jesus after giving thanks fed five thousand on five loaves and two fish, the Nearly New Shop strives to follow His example by feeding, clothing, and servicing those who participate in the process, whether they be employees, volunteers, donors, consignors or recipients of outreach contributions.

All proceeds contribute to the mission of Saint Ann's Parish which includes programs for those in need both locally and internationally.

Consigning is a quick and easy way to get a little money for items you no longer need or want. The Nearly New Shop accepts “gift quality” items for consignment. Clothing should be in excellent condition, current style, clean, pressed, and in season. Non-clothing items should be in good repair, clean, and free of dust and dirt.

We have a color coded pricing system. At the end of the initial color period (about two weeks), a 25% markdown is taken. After the next two weeks, 50%; after the following two weeks, 75%. After the final two weeks, the item is considered a donation.
