It is a small, but a very good store. I was able to find there beautiful things (including really unique findings) for rather low price.

This thrift store is more upscale and has a lot of good finds. I’ve found high-quality goods that don’t look like they’ve come from the thrift store here over the years. It’s worth stopping in once every other week or so because they keep the inventory turned over fairly regularly.

This place is relatively small and more suitable for middle aged and older women as most of the clothing is from that demographic. There are still fun pieces for others in the jewelry, accessories, and decorative sections!

The place is small, but some decent/good looking things. Not the easiest to walk through, but not the worst.The parking lot is very small up front, with a handful of extra spots out back.They are associated with the Durham Crisis Center. All proceeds go to support them.

A small but very well organized thrift store that specializes in women's clothing and accessories, and also has a tiny but nice selection of furniture, paintings, and home accessories. The staff are super helpful and nice. The selection of women's items are all in good condition and well organized by size, season, etc. Prices are very inexpensive. A nice little thrift store!

Lovely consignment for women's clothes and housewares with a meaningful and noble cause. I've found so many cute pieces there. Their sizes in clothes are broad... I just wish people with size 9 shoe donated more often! 😊

Thanks to all the folks who carefully select display merchandise. The store beautifully displays everything; the look is inviting, & intentional. I didn't go to purchase. Instead, I went to drop off gently used women's apparel & shoes. I'm not sure who the assistant was (he certainly wasn't the manager), but this middle-aged aged man was the most compassionate, helpful person in the store. He had a wonderful disposition as he helped me unload my car. Thank you for offering great merchandise for a wonderful cause. Keep that helpful man!

Quaint spot with friendly staff. I didn't like the posted price for DVD's but did find something to take home all the same.

Great thrift store for women’s clothes! This hidden gem shocked me once I went inside. Do yourself a favor and park in the back. The front spots are hard to get out of. Once inside you’ll find a good selection of book, small selection of knickknacks and furniture and a good collection of women’s clothes. The clothes stunned me. Most were brand names and all were extremely stylish. I’m an XL and found many dresses and shirts, and even a pair of jeans!! If you are smaller, let this be your haven. You will find super trendy outfits here and all for thrifting prices. Plus you’re supporting a good cause! They had 3 fitting rooms and didn’t have a limit on what to bring back and the staff were super nice. This place is a must check out!

Love love love! Stopped in to look for a lamp and came out with 2 skirts and a dress! The atmosphere is super friendly and definitely gives you the vibe that you’ll find something unique and loved. The cashier was very kind and personable. I loved looking through the racks! I’m really happy with my purchase and this will definitely be back!

Pennies for Change is such a sweet shop. I bring my nice clothing donations here, and love knowing they support women’s shelters & DA survivors. They have nice glassware, clothing, and books!

I'm from out of state and of all the thrift stores I've been to in this area, Pennies is definitely the best, and the only one I would return to. It's clean, has a good selection, and staff are friendly. I bought a small Maruca shoulder bag for under $2 (on sale). I'm familiar with this Colorado brand, and it was way underpriced. It was probably a $35-45 purse, so it was a great deal. It's really a wonderful store, and the only reason I didn't give five stars is because clothes are grouped according to color and not size. I understand that this would make it easier to keep the shop tidy and nice looking, but I don't want to have to look at every single item of clothing to find my size.
