We Are Danbury's No. 1 Thrift Store!

Sustainable Jungle has included the Deer Hill Thrift Shop in it's review of the 11 Best Thrift Stores in Connecticut.

Our Connecticut thrift store peers are impressive, but none of them are in Danbury. We are No. 1 in Danbury because of our customers' enthusiastic support of this vital ministry. (Thank you!) Our customers are fuel for out all-volunteer workers who keep our shelves and racks stocked with high quality merchandise, as well as their friendly, open vibe.

What is the Deer Hill Thrift Shop Like?

Despite the thrifty prices, our volunteers give the shop the appearance of an upscale boutique. The atmosphere warm and friendly, reminiscent of the corner store where neighbors come in to visit and shop. The thrift shop is an outreach program of the First Congregational Church of Danbury.
