“Worth a Shot if you are into a bargain.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 7, 2013

Pretty good selection of designer women's clothing - but mostly (this visit) larger sizes (vy small selection of 0s, 2s, 3s). Might be worth a visit though if you are a 8, 10, 12 as there are some fancy gowns from very high end designers (Mary McFadden, etc.) Some nice crystal too. Furniture selection was middling.

“An Upscale Consignment Shop”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2013

This store is operated by volunteers of Bethesda-By-The-Sea Church. It asks for and receives it donations primarily from Palm Beachers. Like any consignment shop, it can be hit or miss; they may or may not have your size or favorite color in designer outfits. It's not just clothes, it can be anything that has a good value and can be resold. You almost have to visit it more than once.

“THE BEST RESALE STORE!!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2013

Palm Beach residents donate to the store and the selection is fabulous. Where else can you get gently used items of highest quality and reasonable prices.Name brands galore. Always my first stop on my way to Worth Avenue after lunch at Hamburger Heaven.

“A Great Place in Many Ways”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013

This place is an institution on the island, something like an Uber-Goodwill - The donors are Uber-rich, and the customers are proportionally uber too, and it all benefits the local church :-) It's enjoyable to just walk through and see the many interesting things they have, often including some interesting furniture, nice decorator items, nice porcelain and silverware, etc. There is also a whole section of lightly used high-end designer clothes that from their looks could have come from the upper crest of high society - and although discreetness will never allow us to know, they probably do.

“Thrift Shop With Great High End Finds”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2013

I've been going to the Church Mouse for about six years and never miss a visit when I'm in the area. I've found great designer clothes there and still mourn the day that I did not pick up the Tahari raincoat I saw there for $60 that would have been perfect for my best friend. I always find something and even though you do have to look through everything great finds are there. On my last visit I found a Sigrid Olsen sweater that I love and also bought some mochaware for a cousin who collects it - someone had brought in a collection of about 30-40 pieces and I was able to pick out some rare items that even my cousin had never seen.

In addition, it's fun to just be in this shop to hear the conversation among the volunteers. It's Palm Beach and you'll hear about 'boy toys', lunches with Donald Trump's wife Milania, and everything else that makes Palm Beach a unique playground. Also, Worth Avenue is just a few steps away, as well as the beach itself. Well worth the visit!
