Children’s Angel Foundation Thrift & Boutique Wouldn’t You Rather Donate to a Small Charity?

I’ve been driving around with two boxes of clothing and one box of paperback books in my vehicle, planning to stop at Savers or Goodwill.  Today I was in the area of Children’s Angel Foundation Thrift & Boutique, a thrift store I’ve been wanting to visit for at least two years.  I’ve always been working, on the clock, in a hurry or happened to pass by the store when it was closed.

Since I was off work, not in a hurry, and it was open, I decided to stop for a few minutes and check them out.  The store was tidy, organized and well lit.  I saw quite a few items that were reasonably priced.  I’ve been a little disappointed lately with Savers and Goodwill as the items can sometimes be purchased at Walmart, Target or Ross Dress for Less for nearly the same amount.

I bought a game – The Worst Case Scenario Game of Surviving Life – for two dollars. It looks to have all the pieces, and looks like it will be a fun game.

After spending a few minutes in the store, I decided this was where I would donate my stuff.

I would love to work nearby this little thrift store so I could visit during lunchtime, just to see what they have that’s new and also to donate more of my clutter! 🙂

  1. I adore thrift stores! It’s like a treasure hunt. We live near a thrift store that donates all of its proceeds to the local hospice society. A gorgeous hospice was just built and opened this spring. It costs a family just $30 a day to have a loved one cared for there. Warm fuzzies, for sure.
