The Pennyworth Shop is a community thrift store in downtown Silver Spring, Maryland. Members of Grace Episcopal Church of Silver Spring and community volunteers have run the shop for over 60 years.
All shop items are donations and sold at affordable prices. Many items such as blouses, skirts and jeans average $3. Shop items include household goods, women’s and men’s clothing, children’s clothing, children’s toys, adult and children’s books, and knick-knacks. Volunteers display new items daily.
After rent and utilities are paid, the Pennyworth Shop income supports a variety of ministries at Grace Episcopal Church such as the Homeless Ministry. In 2011 Pennyworth also donated over $1,500 to outside causes. Past causes have included Habitat for Humanity, Montgomery Hospice, and Samaritan Ministries.
