4 Must Visit Central MA Consignment Shops

Wednesday, February 29, 2012

 

Consignment shops seem to be popping up all over Central Massachusetts. But GoLocalWorcester found some of the local favorites.

1) Grime Clothing: This shop features more than new and used clothes. Owner Molly McGrath searches for unique creations by local artists. One craftsman featured in her store makes jewelry from bicycle parts and tires. Feel free to bring your used wares and see if McGrath will buy it!

100 Grove Street, Worcester, MA.

2) Abby’s House Thrift Store: All of the proceeds from the Abby’s House Thrift Shop go to Abby’s House, a shelter for homeless women and children.Dudley Resident, Linda Curry, enjoys going to the Abby’s House Thrift Shop during her lunch break. She works in Worcester and says, “I love to shop there because the people are great and you know your donation is helping people in our community. There’s lots of variety and donated items from local merchants at very reasonable prices.” Abby’s House accepts gently used women’s and men’s clothing in good condition and household items, including unopened health and beauty products. Furniture in good condition is also needed, although you must call ahead for a furniture donation.

52 High Street, Worcester, MA; 508-756-5486

3) St. Anne’s:  Amanda Gawlick from Fitchburg finds treasures at St. Anne’s. She says, “they have a lot of seconds from the TJX companies and a lot of higher end brand names for clothing. They also have a great variety of home decorations.” In addition to clothing, St. Anne’s accepts NEW wrapped toys in their original packaging. Please call ahead if you have a furniture donation. Due to safety reasons, these USED items cannot be accepted: computers, electronics, baby furniture, toys and stuffed animals. 

130 Boston Turnpike, Shrewsbury, MA (located below the church); 508- 799-4169

4) The Goodwill Store: Joy Saltzman resides in Sturbridge and works in Worcester. She shops at Worcester Goodwill because she can “shop on a very small budget but look high end and professional. I gravitate towards previously loved items because they come to me with a story. For every item of clothing or purse that I fall in love with at a consignment shop, I am confident that someone enjoyed that item before me. By purchasing previously loved items, I am keeping a legacy going.” 

25 Park Ave, Worcester, MA; 508-752-4042
