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

Special Thanks from Year Up
Posted: Aug 2 2019 - 3:42pm

During Lent, Thrifty Threads collected men’s ties for Year Up, an organization in Boston helping young men prepare for the workforce. They send their thanks to Thrifty Threads and the United Parish congregation: "Our current students are ready to start their corporate internships soon, and teaching our young men how to wear a tie and providing them with your ties - is really much appreciated. We are most grateful for your partnership." Thank you for your support! Your contributions have had a positive effect on members of our wider community!

Thrifty Threads Seeks Men's Ties
Posted: Mar 25 2019 - 1:30pm

Thrifty Threads is challenging United Parish worshipers to help make this Lenten period a productive time for two organizations we support. Year Up is an organization helping young men prepare for the workforce. The need for ties is urgent. Parole is also always hoping we can send ties and dress shirts. Please look through your collection and consider donating to this cause. Our goal is to collect as many ties as we can and share them with the groups who need them. For more information, contact thriftythreads@upbrookline.org.
