Not just for Seniors - The Senior Center Thirft Shop

Monday, March 8, 2010

New or nearly new goods for kitchen, bathroom, knick-knacks, jewelry, shoes, children's items, books, magazines, art work, linens, fabric, sewing items are all available at extremely reasonable prices at the Thrift Shop at the Shoreline - Lake Forest Park Senior Center. Everyone is welcome to shop at the Thrift Store - not just seniors.

Manager Judith Enich says, "We try to be a step up from other thrift stores by putting out only the best of our donations. We have many donated greeting cards for 25 cents each and a selection of more specialized cards that we sell for about .60--$1.00. We have a wide variety of very nice clothes usually selling for very low prices. We test all our small appliances to make sure they work."

The shop appreciates donations from the community. The only donations they do not accept are large furniture pieces, large appliances, and electronics.

All the workers are volunteers and new volunteers are always welcomed. There is no paid staff. 

Workers pride themselves on being friendly and helping customers find items if they wish help. They will hold items for people if they will be picked up in a reasonable time. They also take requests for items and let customers know when or if the item is donated.

The shop has a new sale almost every week for 50% off. For example, one week all slacks, pants, and jeans were 50% off.

All monies from the Thrift Shop go directly to the adjoining Senior Center to help support their programs.

The Thrift Shop is located in the building just south of the Shoreline Conference Center at 185th and 1st NE. They are in the west end of the Senior Center building, with entrances to the west, the south, and through the Senior Center. There is generous parking in front of the building. Look for the large red signs.  
The store is open Monday - Friday from 9:30 am -3:30 pm.
