St. John’s Thrift Shop

Located right in downtown Gloucester under the buildings of St. John’s Episcopal Church (48 Middle St.), and with an entrance and parking available off of Washington street (more or less across from Midori and Tedeschi), the St. John’s thrift Shop is very accessible either on foot or by car.

SJ0They are open Tuesday-Thursday, 10-2, during the summer (generally starting in May and ending in September).  Martha Whitney (in a photo below), who runs the shop, told me that they have aimed to synchronize their hours with the other thrift shop a few doors down, sponsored by the Congregational Church (to be featured here another day).  That makes it easy for someone to visit both shops in one trip.

Their inventory includes some clothes and a wide, eclectic variety of other household items, including kitchenware, books, framed pictures, clothes, blankets, etc. From my experience, prices are very, very affordable, and everything is clean and carefully selected.

I have picked up several useful items here over the past week, including a nice warm afghan, a wastepaper basket, and a corkscrew. Definitely worth checking out!

  1. I noticed some interesting kitchen appliance in your lower left photo: Slow cooker, behind it either a warmer or a fondue pot, and the white double boiler pot on the extreme right with wooden spoon??? Going there tomorrow. We love to eat at the gallery! Thanks.
