Which door?

We are located at 404 Washington Street in Brighton Center. There are three doors to the church building; which one should you use?

As you face the building, you will see a parking lot on the right side of the building. The Thrift Shop uses the door off this parking lot. There are three steps at this entrance. If this is a problem for you, please call 617-254-4046 before you come and we will be sure that the door with the ramp is unlocked.

Moving? Cleaning out a closet? Let us help.

No, we won't come help you pack, but we can provide a new home for your gently-used items.

We would be happy to receive your clean, useable, and nearly-new or vintage clothing and housewares. All children's items should also meet current safety standards. Time and space do not allow us to accept large or broken items. Small furniture items such as accent tables are fine; dining room tables or chairs are not. We just don't have the space! We also do NOT accept computers, computer parts, or any electronic items larger than a bread box. And no matter how small your electronic item, if it isn't working, please don't donate it: we're not a fix-it shop.

To donate items, please bring them to the shop when we're open—Wednesdays and Saturdays from 10 to 2. Receipts for tax purposes are available; just ask.
