Vineyard Haven will soon be home to a new thrift shop whose profits will benefit artists and arts educators across the Island.

Act Two Second Hand Store was founded by Kevin Ryan and Alyssa Keenan with a mission of raising money for local arts artists and programs. It has been created in response to the needs of the arts community.

The organization will operate a retail outlet at 66 Main street in Vineyard Haven. The store will sell new and gently-used clothing, jewelry, furniture, housewares and art. Act Two Second Hand Store is expected to open in mid-March.
