life as a volunteer: December

Christmas-OrnamentsMarta has been part of our team for awhile and we asked what she is up to at the store during December.

‘One of the things I love about our thrift shop is how it changes for every holiday.  Right now we’re getting ready for our annual Holiday Pre-Sale Extravaganza! It takes an entire weekend to unpack all the Christmas and Hanukkah donations that we’ve been storing all year, put them out on display, and decorate the shop.  Every department is transformed:  we  have decorations, lights, wreaths, and ornaments; holiday clothing, sweaters and kids’ outfits; baking dishes and cookie cutters; Christmas CDs and DVDs; cookbooks; glassware, silver, and dishes for your special parties; table linens; Christmas and Hanukkah-themed books for adults and children; toys – it goes on and on!

The only thing we DON’T have is snow . . .  you’ll have to go to the Assistance League of Minneapolis for that.’
