The Arc Emporium Putnam thrift store

The Arc Emporium, as the name implies, is a store with a variety of offerings and treasures. The Emporium offers quality gently used, and many new, men's, women's and kids' clothing items that are clean pressed for resale, including career-ready choices. We also sell jewelry and accessories. Several of the clothing items are high end garments from Ann Taylor, Coldwater Creek, Calvin Klein, and many others.

Are you in need of a new couch or bureau? You may find a real bargain at the store. Donations of gently used and new furniture pieces are accepted year round, and our inventory is frequently updated. In addition to furniture, we sell housewares and decor, books, and children's toys. Sets of dishes and glass wear including beautiful cut glass pieces are on display - even some fine china and antique pieces!  The Emporium is a great stop to make when you are visiting the popular antiques district of Putnam!

Locally produced honey can be purchased in the store from Holy Family Honey.

If you like spicier fare, we also sell Dragon’s Blood Hot Sauce, a product of Connecticut. We also feature seasonal and non-seasonal craft items and decorative flags.

The products in our store are constantly changing so it is best to visit our store often to get the best deals and see what new items have been put on display.
