New, premium clothing sale upcoming at DCA Thrift Shop

This special event will take place on Monday, Oct. 22 from 10 to 2 p.m.  at the DCA Thrift Shop, located at 996 Post Road in Darien. Purchases will support the DCA.

The DCA Thrift Shop was founded in 1931 to supply clothing and food to families in need, and offer employment for women during the Depression. Workers washed and mended donated clothing and repaired household articles, which were then sold at very low prices.

Today’s Thrift Shop is run by volunteers, proud to continue the tradition of helping the community. They have expanded the merchandise to include jewelry, books, home furnishings, accessories and more. Over 1,800 customers make purchases at the shop each month. All profits support the mission of the DCA, including scholarships for Darien High School graduates.

The Thrift Shop has been recognized with the Community Civic Award by the Darien Old Timers Athletic Association, and is also a two-time recipient of the Darien Chamber of Commerce “Green Ribbon Award for Distinguished Environmental Activities.”
