"Well, that was fun!" is the comment that we hear again and again as customers are checking out or leaving Nifty Thrifty. And the feeling is mutual. The Volunteers working at the thrift shop are having fun as well.

If you haven't been to Nifty Thrifty it is worth a visit. We are located in the old Rectory of the Episcopal church. It is a big, old, brick building at 19 Conant Square in Brandon.

"Well, that was fun!" is the comment that we hear again and again as customers are checking out or leaving Nifty Thrifty. And the feeling is mutual. The Volunteers working at the thrift shop are having fun as well.

If you haven't been to Nifty Thrifty it is worth a visit. We are located in the old Rectory of the Episcopal church. It is a big, old, brick building at 19 Conant Square in Brandon. The parking is around the back, so you have to turn up Prospect Street, and turn left into the parking area. You can also park on Rt 7 or behind the Dunkin Donuts. The entryway is up on the big side porch, There is a rack of free clothing on the porch, and a bench of free items. Please help yourself. The shop has no public rest rooms, and no telephone. We only accept cash for payment.

We have clothing of every description for the whole family (often including the dog), but we also have jewelry, crafts, toys, linens, puzzles, games, books, cards, dishes, pots and pans, small appliances, and all manner of oddities that people clear out of their garages, basements, junk drawers, closets, attics, barns, camps....

Prices are extremely reasonable, and that is part of the reason why shopping at Nifty Thrifty is so much fun.

We accept donation whenever we are open, which is Monday - Saturday 10am - 2pm. People have been very generous with their donations. They bring us the things they know will be desirable, and salable.

We also have a non-profit eBay presence: Brandon Thrift Shop Inc.

Every month Nifty Thrifty gives money to local projects, programs, events, groups or ideas. We used to give away $500 each month, but recently we have been doing so well, that we have sometimes increased our gifts to $1000. Or we give money to a couple of recipients instead of just one. Last month we gave the Brandon History Museum $500, and we gave the Brandon Chamber of Commerce $1000 to support their April 8th Solar Eclipse event: 'A Small Town Experience of a BIG Time Event' Stop by the Brandon Thrift Shop and see what all the fuss is about.

In 2023 Nifty Thrifty was proud to be able to give over $7000 back to our community. We gave money to all of the big town celebrations like the Carnival, the Harvest Fest, and the Independence Day Celebration. We gave money to the things that made our community more compassionate like the Food Shelf, the Toy Project, and the Brandon Play Group. We supported the things that made our community more fun like the Music at the Riverbend, the Pokemon Club, the Town Hall Series, and the Otter Valley Musical. We gave money to help our schools and our senior citizens.

We are looking forward to seeing you all in the New Year, and making 2024 just as gratifying and rewarding. Thank you!

Nifty Thrifty is now selling on eBay! When someone donates an item that is precious, special, and potentially lucrative, we put it up on our eBay site: brandonniftythrifty. We are a non-profit seller, so we get more of the profits than a regular seller. If you have a treasured item that is unusual, antique, expensive, or unique, make a note of it's significance when you donate it to us, and we will put it on our eBay site for a bigger buying pool and a bigger profit.
