The $20,000 for these grants comes from revenue generated by Next-to-New, the St. David’s Consignment Resale shop on Burnet Road.
Since 1959, The Next-To-New Shop has been a part of the Austin landscape as the only not-for-profit consignment/resale shop giving back to the community more than three million dollars in grants to local charities. An equal portion is given for the restoration and upkeep of the Historic Church. The Shop is operated by a small staff with a large number of volunteers. The Shop consigns and sells household items, women’s clothing, accessories, china, crystal, dishes and more. The Next-To-New Shop is located at 5435 Burnet Rd. and gladly accepts donations.
