Thrift Shop

Out with the New, In with the Old

On any given day, you can find a variety of bargains on items forgotten by some but coveted by others at the Thrift Shop at Fort Detrick. For instance, near the back of the modest shop is a complete hand-painted set of bowls, plates, and mugs, along with lightly worn military and civilian clothing. Closer to the front are diverse and engaging antique books; jade, glass, and clay vases; two maple violins; and an assortment of Bud Light beer signs. It’s all kept in a nondescript, straw-colored house on Porter Street near Veterans Gate. Inside, you’ll find a shop filled with fragrances and shelves redolent of history and the past.
