Thrifty Shoppe
Friday's and Saturday's from 10am - 2pm


We are an entirely volunteer thrift shop and your generous donations go entirely to the local community.  Whether you are buying or donating, the contributions go to the needy in our town.  In the past we have furnished and clothed survivors of a house fire, those who needed home heating oil after a job loss, or many other circumstances.  You can find excellent bargains from work clothes, gently used children's clothes home furnishings, music, movies, kitchen items, art, toys, vintage, antiques, crafting supplies, sporting goods; who knows what will turn up next! 


Our church, our body of Christ, has been working and worshiping in the community since the early 1800's and our town is named after the founding benefactor of this church, Benjamin Chaplin.  If you have been blessed with "two coats" consider donating the other to help others.  If you have free time and would like to volunteer there are always opportunities, from sorting and manning the cash register, to any other help.  If you like a good bargain come see what we have this week!

To set up an appointment to donate or help man the store, call the church at (860) 455-9708 or email

"The best loving, oldest Church around. No words can describe this Church. Very anointed Christ centered Church. I miss it very much. I used to live in that area and became a member of it. I still go back to visit. I wish I had a Lear jet to travel back there every Sunday morning. Check out their Thrifty shop. Open on Fri and Sat from April to Nov 9 am to 12pm. Has clothes, and other odds and ends of all sorts, even live plants😀for very low prices!! 10 star rating."
