Every community has it’s hidden treasures. Sometimes there are little Mom & Pop shops that only a few locals know about. Maybe there is a coffee shop or catfish house that the regulars love but the average community member has never visited. In our community, there is a tiny room called the Amen Corner that holds some crazy cool treasures and opportunities for the bargain shopper.
If you live in the Danville, KY area and love to find deals on gently used or new brand name clothes and small household items, then you need to check out the Amen Corner.
Amen Corner Thrift Store
I first discovered the Amen Corner a few years ago and have always enjoyed browsing and searching for the perfect deal. The prices are extremely reasonable. Most shirts, dresses, pants and skirts will cost you less than a few dollars. There are a few higher priced formals and specialty items but they will have a clear marked tag.
On my last visit, I found name brands like Talbots, Jones New York, Nine & Co., Gap, Ann Taylor and more. The volunteers do a really good job of weeding out the clothes that have stains, rips or other flaws. Since the inventory is constantly changing, this is the kind of place you want to visit on a regular basis in order to catch the best deals.
In addition to clothes, you can also find scrubs, shoes, basic household linens and a few other small household items.
The Amen Corner love getting new donations of quality new and gently used clothing items.
- Drop off clothes only when store is open.
- Do not dump items outside church doors.
- Clothes must be new or gently used.
- Fold and place items in a box or strong bag. No piles of clothes accepted.
- No electronics.
This is one of those places that the more you visit, the more fun stuff you can find.
