A mission of the First Congregational Church of Camden since 1994, Heavenly Threads has supported many local organizations over the past 27 years through its thrift shop sales. “Remember, when you donate or purchase items at Heavenly Threads, you are helping many charitable groups,” said Melissa Chapman, of Heavenly Threads. “Our staff and volunteers are proud to sustain this ‘pay-it-forward’ mission of the First Congregational Church.”
Heavenly Threads Thrift Shop is open to shoppers Tuesday through Saturday, 11:00 am to 3:00 pm. Donations of quality household items and clothing are accepted Tuesday through Saturday, 9:00 am to 3:00 pm.
Heavenly Threads Thrift Shop is located at 57 Elm Street, in the former manse of the First Congregational Church of Camden. When the shop first opened for business, gently used clothing was the main attraction. Through steadily growing community support, the shop has evolved into a full-fledged emporium, selling a wide variety of artwork, books, household items, and jewelry. The shop now fills every nook and cranny of the two-story, circa 1830 home it occupies.
