Thrift Shop News by Maureen Storey

Summer is here…YAY! Time to play “Did You Know?”

Did you know the Thrift Shop is open all summer? Many thrift and consignment stores take a summer break and close, but we stay open with the A/C on and loads of new treasures arriving daily.

Did you know that we have tons of summer dresses, casual dresses, formal dresses, fun dresses and dresses for work? Oh, and shorts, capris, tee shirts, bathing suits, active wear, kids’ clothes, shoes and accessories.

Did you know we carry great brand names? Ann Taylor, Jones NY, Tommy Bahama, Coach, Coldwater Creek, Cole Haan, Dooney & Bourke, Ralph Lauren, Fossil, Vera Bradley, Tignanello, Moschino, as well as Old Navy, Under Armor, Forever 21, Nike, Aeropostale, Levi’s, Michael Kors and so much more. Quality clothing for less!

Did you know that around mid-August, back-to-school items (eeek) will appear to get your younger ones back to school for a fraction of the cost of regular retail? Bookbags, lunch bags, clothing, jackets, pens and pencils, crayons, paint, binders, papers. Yup, we’ve got lots!

Did you know that lots of our volunteers vacation over the summer? Got some time? Would you like to meet some great folks, laugh a lot, do a good turn for others? Contact us and find out about helping out for a few hours a week and see what happens in that cute little shop on Main Street or inside the walls of the big, mysterious Trinity Mission Barn.

Did you know that Trinity Thrift has a Facebook page? Yep, you can get a sneak peek at our new treasures and fabulous finds by checking us out on Facebook at Trinity Thrift Shop, and then “Like” us and “Share” us.

Did you know that the Seasonal Room (Christmas Closet, Garden Room in the Barn) has expanded its offerings to a Pop-Up Art Space with original signed artworks, and a space for camping and outdoor items and tools? You definitely need to see this!

Did you know that the Furniture Gallery runs a “Thrifty Thursday Sale” event every week? We discount selected items 30% to 50% off our already low prices. Keep an eye out for these great deals.

Did you know that the Thrift serves over 2,000 customers a month? We encounter many, many more people who are looking for something else…a friendly face, a hello, directions, to simply be seen by someone. We do that, too.

Did you know that our volunteers are amazing human beings? Yes, they are. Join them in being the hands and feet of Jesus in this world. You can do it…Just Say Yes!
