Houston Consignment Shop

The Guild Shop of St. John the Divine

Retail Therapy with a Mission

Shopping at The Guild Shop is a convergence of commerce and
compassion.

The Guild Shop is Houston’s premier resale destination for
treasure hunters, consignors, thrifters, pickers, resellers,
volunteers, and retail therapy seekers. Each of these patrons
directly contributes to the betterment of elderly in need in the
greater Houston area.

What was once considered Houston’s best kept secret for
sourcing treasures has transformed into a beloved icon that
celebrates Houston’s past, present and future.

    Volunteers have a broad range of interests and talents which are put to use as salespeople, pricers and researchers, cashiers, merchandisers and more.

    Volunteers are asked to serve one three-hour shift each week. Training is provided on the job.
