Pleasant Dale Free Boutique
If things are tight financially right now and you could use some help providing clothing for your family, the Pleasant Dale Free Boutique is for you!
We offer FREE gently used clothing, newborn through adult, including plus sizes & maternity. We also stock towels, sheets & blankets.
We are open the 2nd Saturday of each month, 9am - 10 am.

How does it work?
Just come shop! You have the option to join our mailing list to receive information about special events, but there is no application or information required.
We provide shopping bags & let you shop our racks for whatever your family needs. Our store operates on trust, so our policy is, "Take what you need. No more. No less."
Volunteers are available to assist you, and snacks and drinks are provided. We also have toys, books & coloring books to entertain your children while you shop.
When you arrive, a volunteer will meet you at your car with a number. This number holds your place in line. You can wait inside your vehicle until it is your turn to shop. This helps us stay under capacity inside the building.
Masks are required to enter the building
Our kids' toys are put away for now. Sorry!

Loving God by Serving People
I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.' ... "The King will reply, 'Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.'"
Matthew 25:36, 40 NIV
At the Boutique, we take these words of Jesus seriously. When we provide clothes, we are really doing it for Jesus, himself. That's why we take our quality standards so seriously. We wouldn't offer Jesus worn, outdated clothing that we would never wear in public, and we don't offer it to our customers, either. We carry only clean, gently used clothing, towels & bedding items.
A sign at our door reads: This Store Operates on Trust: Take what you need. No more. No less.
There are no applications and no limits at the Pleasant Dale Free Boutique. We trust our customers to be honest, and we trust our God to provide. Time after time we have witnessed God bringing just the right item into our hands at just the right time for a customer in need.
If Jesus can turn 5 loaves and 2 fish into a banquet for 5,000 (Matthew 14:14-21), then he can take the donations of our church and multiply them for the customers that He brings to our doors.
We strive to create an environment where our customers can shop with dignity and experience God's love.
At this time we are only able to accept clothing donations from our local congregation at Pleasant Dale Church. Our space is limited, and they keep us very busy!
If you attend Pleasant Dale please remember:
- We accept only clothing, shoes, towels, sheets & blankets
- Items should be gently used: no stains, tears, etc...
- We do not take formal wear or suits
We welcome financial contributions to help cover the costs of running the Boutique as well as funding special projects. Money may be spent to purchase supplies, clothing items in high demand, special gifts for the children on holidays, our annual Back2School Bash, or whatever needs may arise as a part of the Boutique ministry.
Please send checks to Pleasant Dale Church at 4504 W 300 N, Decatur, IN, 46733 with "Boutique" in the memo line. Thank you!
The ministry of the Boutique simply could not happen without the help of faithful volunteers. We need individuals to sort through and organize all of the donations and to staff the store on days we are open to customers.
Once a month, emails are sent out to all our volunteers with a list of dates and times when help is needed. Volunteers can then choose when to participate.
