what you will bring home.

Out of Your Attic Thrift Shop News
Submited by Carol Hendee
We want to thank a company called Towelettes Inc. for donating many
boxes of towelettes (hand wipes) for the homeless. We were able to
send boxes to Laconia for Baby Threads to pass out and multiple
boxes to the Friendly Kitchen in Concord.
If you are doing your spring cleaning, think about donating your
“never to be used again” small items to a charity-such as the Attic,
which supports Baby Threads of NH, a 501 c3-your donations are tax
deductible-just ask for a form when you drop off your items.
A request has come in for a bike for a young girl. We have
reuseable bags for groceries, etc. for $.25 ea. We also have bags
of rags for $.50. We could use donations of AA & AAA batteries for
the toys we receive. We are on Rte 28, 5 mi. north of the Epsom
Circle, Chichester; Mon. 8-12; Tues. & Thurs. 8-4; Wed. 11-4 & Sat.
