History

The Bryn Athyn Thrift Shop (BATS), was established in 1993 to benefit the many uses of the Bryn Athyn Church and Elementary School. In May 2023, the 125-year-old barn located at 510 Tomlinson Road, right next to the Bryn Athyn Church School was taken down to make way for a new elementary school and church offices.

BATS will be moving to a new location, slated to open in late 2024, and will be located at 3370 Buck Road, Bryn Athyn.  The new thrift shop will be temperature- controlled, have an easily accessible retail space, and have one convenient drop-off location. The interior will be reminiscent of our former shop, including reclaimed wood and décor from the old barn. Its exterior will blend in with the surrounding farmland.
