Thrift Shop

is temporary closed. 


Benefits of Shopping at Crete UMC's Thrift Shop Are:


  • You’ll find unique items.  Crete UMC’s Thrift Shop is the perfect place for collectors or any kind of shoppers to an assortment of books, games, records, mugs, jeans, rings, t-shirts, artworks, and ceramic figurines, etc...  Where else can you find such great treasures?  Nowhere but here, at Crete United Methodist Church. 

  • You’ll find clothing or jewelry at a reasonable price.  It’s the perfect place to find costumes for Halloween.  For Halloween, are you dressing up as a hobo or a princess?  Dresses, skirts, jewelry, and/or tweed jackets are easily available and are in various sizes. 

  • You’ll find affordable items for that first home or apartment.  Every young person knows the feeling of moving into a new place and realizing on that first night that they don’t have enough forks or plates to eat or to have their first gathering at the new place.  At the Thrift Shop you’ll find dishes and cookware that has already withstood the test of time, but is also totally affordable.

Currently Closed
