The Take It or Leave It "shop" is closed for the season. Plans are to open again in April, 2022. The volunteers who staff TIOLI are grateful for a happy and productive 2021 year, and look forward to next April.
The Take It Or Leave It Shed (TIOLI) is a reusable item “shop” managed by town volunteers. No money is involved – everything is free. TIOLI is open for the season (weather permitting) Saturdays through October, and is located at the train station. Location: 1st left after you enter the station parking area from South Greeley Avenue.
Drop Off Hours - 8:30am -11:00am
Shopping Hours - 9:00am - 12:00pm
Only New Castle residents may leave things, because there is limited room in the shed and everything must be stored there if not taken by noon. Signs will indicate the drop-off area.
Because of the improved Covid-19 situation and TIOLI’s outdoor location, masks will be optional. Tables will be spaced to encourage social distancing. Shoppers may be asked to limit their shopping time to let everyone have a chance at the wares.
Children must be supervised, and please – no dogs.
