Thrifty Threads

Thrifty Threads is open Fridays from 1:00pm to 4:00pm, and Saturday from 11:00am to 3:00pm.

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 over 15 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.

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 time. Come join a wonderful group of volunteers, have fun, and maybe find a treasure or two. 


We can accept:
Gently-used or new clothing for all ages and sizes
Small household items like: kitchenware, vases, artwork, and books

We cannot accept:
Large items like furniture
Broken items
Baby equipment
Used socks or underwear
Whole house clean-outs

Thrifty Threads Still Hard at Work
Posted: Jun 25 2020 - 3:41pm

The Thrifty Threads volunteers are staying busy, even while the shop remains closed. We have sent a shipment of men's clothing to Haley House. In addition, we will be picking up all the Catie's Closet bags (about 12) and bringing them to their donation center in Hyde Park to continue supporting school age children. We are continuing to accept donations and will pass them along to other organizations in need. We are also starting to think about ways the shop can reopen in the future. Please call the Church Office at 617-277-6860 to inquire about donation drop-off times, or email
