Out Of Your Attic Thrift Shop News
Submitted By Carol Hendee
The most wonderful thing happened at The Attic! A Mom came in with
an iPad, to photo her daughters coming through the door. The oldest
had a guitar and was singing a song she wrote about how wonderful it
was to shop at The Attic and thanked all the volunteers for their
time and effort. The younger girl had a backpack filled with
supplies for the backpack program and the Mom gave us a check to
purchase more supplies. That kind of display makes it all
worthwhile! Thank you very, very much.
We have an abundance of glassware: wine, brandy, champagne, and
drinking glasses; glass punch bowl. Get ahead of the game for the
holidays and stock up! 345 Suncook Valley Hgwy, Chichester; Mon.
8-12; Tues. & Thurs 8-4; Wed. 11-4 & Sat. 10-4. 247-7191.
