Brothers Keeper

Brothers Keeper is a thrift store located in downtown Ocala. A ministry of Blessed Trinity Roman Catholic Church, it is a great resource for people in need of furniture and clothing at reasonable prices. In fact, we've donated a number of items to Brothers Keeper over the years.

It is important for places like this to be available for folks with limited means. We bring piles over to the equivalent places in our area.

Nice shot! You can find some great stuff in a Thrift store. My grandmother loved them.

I LOVE thrift stores. I donate as well as shop; have gotten some great bargains, but as usual buy what I don't need!

That's a nice name. I actually didn't know others existed besides Salvation Army, etc.

Thrift stores are indeed worthwhile and we give lots of stuff to Goodwill and to several places that provide a fresh start to women escaping from spousal abuse.

It's sad that these are needed.

I bet they also employ people who might not be able to find work otherwise. Bravo to Brother's Keeper!

I like the idea of recycling near-new items. This shop appears to be clean and inviting.

Is it similar to Goodwill?
Bonne journée, Jacob!

These types of places are great. I've found treasures at similar stores and donated a few too.

It looks like they even have cars in there. I bet you can get a good deal on them, too.

I love them too! You also caught some nice reflections there in the glass.

It's a good place for people that need cheap furniture. We never know if someday we will be in the other side.

As the owner of 3 vintage trailers, Thrifts are the best place to score decorating goodies.....
Oh & how lucky you are with that wonderful Ocala sunshine! Send us some, PLZ!,,,it's been grey sky & snow for us since late November(here in Spokane WA)! As a former SO. Calif. transplant, I still can't get use to a day w/o sunshine....

Great place! Some people wouldn't survive very well without places like this, especially over the past couple of years.
