Chappaqua's Take It or Leave It Shop Re-Opens April 3!

The Take It or Leave It “shop” (TIOLI) is a place where residents can leave usable things they do not want, and pick up things they can use.  No money is involved – everything is free.  Location: 1st left as you enter the station parking area from South Greeley Avenue.

The Take It Or Leave It will be open, weather permitting, on Saturdays, beginning April 3.  Drop-off hours are from 8:30 to11:00 am. Shoppers will be welcome from 9am to noon, although the volunteers will start packing things back into the shed at about 11:45.  Only New Castle residents may leave things, because we have limited room in the shed and everything must be stored there if not taken by noon. 

Because of the continuing Covid-19 situation, everyone, volunteer staff members included, must wear masks, and must maintain social distancing. Access to the shed will be limited, and tables will be spaced to encourage distancing. Shoppers will be asked to limit their shopping time to let everyone have a chance at our wares. Gloves and hand sanitizer will be available. Signs will indicate the drop-off area.

Please note these updated rules: NO books, clothes, cassettes, electronic equipment or things in poor condition (including chipped china) will be accepted.   NO items heavier or bulkier than one person can handle.  NO car seats, cribs, bed frames, or skis. Staff volunteers will have the right to refuse items.  Children must be supervised, and please, no strollers or dogs.
