The Shop at the Center


The Shop is currently not open for "drop-ins," however, interested patrons can make an appointment to shop. In addition, The Shop is gratefully accepting donations. To make an appointment to shop or drop off a donation, please call Rose Carroll at 847.784.6035. 

The Shop is a place where . . . 

  • your baubles and bangles can be donated to benefit others
  • the inventory constantly changes, but bargains are a constant theme
  • you can find vintage, classic or contemporary treasures

The Shop at the Center offers jewelry, glassware, crystal, china, pottery, figurines, linens, books and collectibles. If you have any much-loved but seldom-used items that you would like to donate to The Shop, please contact Rose Carroll at 847.784.6035. Donations are tax-deductible to the extent allowable by law. All sale proceeds from The Shop go directly to North Shore Senior Center, a 501(c)(3) organization.

At The Shop, you will also find hand-crafted items (booties, blankets, sweaters, etc.) lovingly made by North Shore Senior Center’s talented Sewing Bees group. We also sell note cards and artwork created by participants in our House of Welcome Adult Day Services for people with memory loss.  

The Shop is staffed by volunteers, and we can always use extra help. We need friendly, outgoing people to interact with customers and sell merchandise or help us price our donated items. Flexible three-hour shifts are available. Please call 847.784.6052 to learn about our volunteer opportunities.
