Fashion, Furniture and Fabulous Finds
Our Thrift Shop prides itself on being among the best shops in New England. It is welcoming, organized and accessible. Stop by, and you'll find everything you need in our shops. We have like-new clothing, footwear, housewares, vintage goods, collectibles and furniture. There's always something new and we make an effort to be "in-season".
Thank you for donating or considering a donation to the Freeport Community Services Thrift Shop. Your donation of gently used clothing, furniture and household items helps us all. Recycling helps our planet by keeping useful items out of a landfill, helps strengthen our communities by funding programs and services for Freeport Community Services and provides a good opportunity for thrifty shoppers to find great bargains.
Donations can be dropped off on the Loading Dock at Freeport Community Services, 57 Depot Street at any time or brought inside the Community Center during normal business hours, M-F 9-5p, SAT 10-5p. A receipt for tax purposes is available in the Thrift Shop.
