Pennyworth Shop

Pennyworth is an attractive thrift shop at 949 Bonifant Street in Fenton Village of Silver Spring. The 1,000 square-foot shop has been a very socially active ministry of Grace Episcopal Church for over 61 years, selling clean, gently used clothing and small household items at low cost to the shoppers of Silver Spring. They donate extra items to Wider Circle, Rescue Workers, Shoes for Africa, Friends of the Library, and others. Rotated clothes from the shop are given each month to Progress Place for the Homeless. Also, Pennyworth gives over 10 % of its net earnings to various local, national, and world missions (nonprofits). The all volunteer staff create a fun place to shop for great bargains. Customers can find new and vintage clothing, collectible home decor, as well as books for adults and children. There are also money saving deals on toys and baby supplies. The shop is open 10 AM to 4 PM on Tuesday though Saturday. (You can also find them on Facebook.) Contact shop manager, Marilyn Seitz, 301- 661-8028 for more information.
