You’ll find it at Thrift on Kent. From antiques and furniture to name brand clothing and toys, it’s a shopping experience like no other.

Check out our silent auction regularly. You can register and bid on unique finds and treasures that have been generously donated.

Thrift on Kent is an affordable and eco-friendly way to shop, all while supporting the programs of MCC.

Another semester of Thrift University begins soon.  Every Friday evening in February you'll experience some upcycling, crafting, enlightenment or tips for the home.

Registration for classes begins January 25th and classes are limited to 20 people.  You must be 16 years or older to register.

Thanks in advance to Agnes from KwartzLab Makerspace, Wendy from Mennonite Central Committee, Sandy our Home Decorator and Pat our Fashion and Image Consultant.

Drop by for some unique gifts or grab a gift card for that hard to buy for person.  We're open Christmas eve!

To celebrate the upcoming Christmas season, we're having a weekly one day only Countdown to Christmas Sale starting Friday November 6th (7 weeks until Christmas).

Make plans to drop by the shop every Friday from 9am - 9pm to take advantage of the one day only super sale.  Each sale will be posted on social media and in the shop the day of. 

The exciting part is that each Friday Countdown Sale will be different and worth the trip. 

See you Friday November 6th as we kick-off the Countdown to Christmas Sale!


Remember to visit us before you head out camping or to the cottage.  Think second-hand, first!

Pick up some homemade fire starters for your campfire, mason jars to keep your staples dry, extra layers to keep warm or lighter layers to keep cool.

We have many of those odds and ends that every cottage needs.  Safe travels!

Grades JK – 8, bring in a report card (from this year) for a FREE book.  We realize many students may not have a final report card, however one from earlier in the year will work. 

High school, College & University students bring in your current student ID for a FREE book.

The second hand resale market is a very competitive industry.  More and more FOR profit businesses and charities are getting on board.  It's important for you, our valued customers and donors to understand the difference.

As a charity we rely solely on donated goods.  We do not purchase liquidated items or used items.  We are also predominantly a volunteer run thrift shop.  Compared to the number of our volunteers (around 300), our paid staff is but a few. 

All of our proceeds, after expenses, go to Mennonite Central Committee Ontario for their relief, development and peace work they do here at home, in our communities and around the world.

To say we appreciate the generosity of our donors and volunteers is an understatement and indeed we could not operate our thrift shop without you.

We also deeply appreciate the ongoing support of our local community and shoppers.  We value the ways that we can partner with local agencies to meet the needs of individuals and families, keep items out of the Regional landfill and to enrich our community.

Thank you for choosing to make a difference in the lives of others by shopping, donating and volunteering with us. 

It seems silly to have one day designated as Earth Day. 

Are we so busy we need a specific day to bring to light things we should be doing on a daily basis? 

Many of our parents and grandparents didn't celebrate Earth Day.  In fact, they were leaders in reducing, reusing and recycling things.  How many of you washed out

As the saying goes, there are 2 seasons in Ontario, Winter and Construction... and we have officially entered the construction season here in Kitchener.
