About the Elizabeth Guild & Lizzie's Boutique
The idea to organize a hospital auxiliary was born at a Park Hospital District Board of Directors meeting in the early 1970s. The Board made the decision for the auxiliary to serve as a fundraiser for the hospital district.
A group of forty-six ladies met, and the Elizabeth Guild Auxiliary was founded, named for the wife of a large contributor to the hospital’s building fund.
The Elizabeth Guild Board of Directors made the decision to start a nearly-new shop as their major source of income and began holding fundraisers to launch the store. The grand opening of the Nearly New Shop was held January 20, 1973. The store was renamed the Elizabeth Guild in December 1973.
The Elizabeth Guild Thrift Shop is currently located at 443 W. Elkhorn Avenue in West Park Center. A second store, Lizzie’s Boutique, opened in 2006 as an outlet for higher-end items donated to the Thrift Store and is located two doors from the Thrift Shop. Stop by to check out our recently expanded Lizzie's. All items sold in both stores are donated by the public and area vendors.
