Where bargains turn into blessings!
The Pennywise Thrift Shop was created as a fund raising endeavor of Church of the Holy Comforter in 1961.
For over 50 years the shop has been recycling and selling donated and consigned affordable, lightly used clothing and household items from and to the Vienna community. The proceeds from the shop fund a variety of ministries and activities within our parish as well as numerous community charitable programs and services.
The success and popularity of Pennywise is directly attributed to the many volunteers from Holy Comforter who work in the shop and to the generous donations from the community.
Items we will accept:
books (except text books)
lightly used sneakers/other shoes
Items we won’t accept:
underwear (including socks)
silver plate serving items
Pennywise offers clothing and household consignment every week. There is an annual $8 fee to get started.
Please review our Consignment Rules & Policies before making an appointment. You will need to sign a contract stating that you have read and agree with all policies and rules. We highly recommend reading our Consignment Rules & Policies to see the items we are unable to consign and to prevent you carrying in items we cannot take. Items stay on the floor for 28 days. Any unsold items not picked up within that 28 days become property of Pennywise.
