Shopping Thrift Store Give in to Temptation

Mother taught me the value of Shopping Thrift Store

My mom would bring stuff home from the Goodwill:  plates, cups, vases, drinking glasses and other items. At the time, us kids did not understand the value of saving money by shopping thrift store, especially the Goodwill!  Shopping Thrift Store Give in to Temptation.

Now, at a much older age, I consider myself to be a Thrift Store Shopping Queen! I’ve been doing it for a long time.  My mom taught me the value of saving, while giving back to the community.

I took a Trip of Change to Shopping Thrift Store!

The week had been a very trying one, with so many things going on that had vexed my spirit. I had to do something to make me feel better. Part of me said don’t go out. Because every time you do you spend money!  That went on for two days. Finally, I decided to go to one of my favorite thrift stores.

The Cathedral of St. Philip Thrift House is a thrift store like no other. Trust me, I’ve been to many across the US. It’s a small, intimate shop with smiling staff members willing to help. Their clothing items are “gently” used and you can find designer brands. They also have books, household items, jewelry, shoes, linen and an assortment of men’s clothing.  Shopping with them supports programs that serve disadvantaged Atlantans who need help meeting basic needs such as food, shelter, clothing or job skills. This is the place for good bargains, and for the feeling of knowing, that through your support, you are helping others! What a way to brighten up your day! That was a Trip of Change!

How you can help, especially during National Volunteer Month

DONATE: donate your gently used furniture, clothing, knick knacks, art, books. Have a whole lot of stuff and no way to get it there? No worries! They can connect you with someone who can help.

VOLUNTEER: Volunteers work in the shop, get donations ready to sell. You can set your own hours and choose what you like to do most. Absolutely, no pressure. You’re a volunteer! You can become a volunteer and be a part of the St. Philips tradition that has been helping communities for 65 years!

Thank you to Linda, David and Nellie for a very pleasant shopping experience, once again, at the Cathedral of St. Philip Thrift House!
