Thrifty Threads


Thrifty Threads is normally 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

The Prison Book Program is a non-profit dedicated to sending free books to prisoners. Most prisons do not allow family and friends to send books into prisons - they have to come from a bookstore, publisher, online retailer or a program like this. So join us in a book drive! On October 24 and 25, from 1-3pm, please bring (gently used, like new, brand new) paperback books to the church lawn for socially distanced drop-off. Top requests include dictionaries/thesauri as well as books on language, working out, religion, business, and hobbies. And if you need help with pickup from your home, please email and we can coordinate a pickup.
