The New School provides an incubator for environmental awareness and involvement among students. Combining our commitment to sustainability with the need to fundraise, led to the founding of our “Outta the Box” Recycle Boutique – an inexpensive place to shop for trendy, offbeat & chic clothing and household wares. We are located just down the road from The New School (8 York St./Route 1, beside Toppings.)

The New School is grateful for the community support Outta The Box continues to receive. Through donations, patronage and volunteer efforts your goodwill supports the mission and the programs of our school. Come visit our community treasure at 8 York St.


Located at 8 York Street (Route One) in Kennebunk, beside Toppings and across from New Morning, just down the road from The New School.

We welcome donations! We ask that donated clothing and items be in good, resalable condition. All donations are tax deductible, and whatever we don’t sell is passed on to Seeds of Hope, Kennebunk Library, Kennebunk Cares Closet and Animal Welfare Society.

We are always happy to accept your donations of the following:

  • Gently used men’s, women’s and children’s clothing
  • Shoes and accessories
  • Art and furniture
  • Books and gift-like items like candles, home decorations, etc.

Donations are being accepted on Saturdays + Sundays only. Please call ahead of time to arrange a time. Drop offs will be contactless and located in the rear parking lot.

No soft goods are currently being accepted. We will accept large furniture pieces by appointment only, provided we have the room. Please call the shop and ask for Pat or Carol to find out more about scheduling the appointment.

For donations of any value, we will provide you with a charitable donation slip that you can use for your tax returns.
