Thrifty Threads, Brookline’s only thrift store, is located inside United Parish and is fully operated by volunteers.
Thrifty Threads has been open and serving the community for 17 years. The shop is not only a source of income for this church, but is an important ministry serving Brookline and surrounding communities with good quality clothing at very low prices.
Thrifty Threads is open Fridays from 1:00pm to 4:00pm, and Saturday from 11:00am to 3:00pm. Items for sale include second-hand men's and women's clothing, jewelry, shoes and purses. Most items cost less than $10. Proceeds support the United Parish and its outreach and social justice programs.
If you have gently used clothing, jewelry, shoes or purses you would like to donate, please do so during our regular store hours. We appreciate your generosity very much!
We would also love to have you join us in helping customers on a Friday or Saturday during store hours. You do not have to work every week, possibly only once a month and then not the full five hours. Come join a wonderful group of volunteers, have fun, and maybe find a treasure or two.

Thrifty Threads is kicking off its summer season and needs your help to keep servicing the community over the warmer months, and we need your help. Please consider spending a few hours with fellow United Parish people. You can be part of helping customers find a great outfit, provide affordable options, recycle clothing with a 'keep it green' clothing option, and give yourself a space for your spiritual life to grow with your fellow United Parish people.

Saturday, April 22nd, we will be working to move winter apparel down to the thrift shop store room and bring up spring and summer clothing. The more hands, the merrier, and the easier the work load. There is schlepping up and down stairs involved for those who are able, as well as stationary sorting and folding and hanging - and general supervising. This is a group that has a great time together when they work, so come and join the fun.
Please consider working with us even for a couple of hours that day beginning at 10:00AM and work until 1:00pm. Contact [email protected] to let them know if you are able to help.
We have a need for warm winter jackets for both men and women. Some of the jackets will be kept for sale in the thrift shop and we will send some men's jackets to Haley House, a service organization for men in need, located on Dartmouth Street in Boston.
The thrift shop is open Fridays and Saturdays, 11am-4pm. Contact the Church Office for more information.
