We celebrate Father’s Day on Sunday, June 21, and what better place to find a gift for Dad than the Thrift Shop?
It may seem that Father’s Day, like Mother’s Day, has been around forever. But that’s not really the case. Father’s Day celebrations were held informally in the early 20th century, and President Woodrow Wilson supported the idea of a Father’s Day holiday. But it wasn’t until 1966 that President Lyndon Johnson issued a presidential proclamation that the third Sunday in June would be known as Father’s Day. It took another six years for President Richard Nixon to name Father’s Day a permanent national observance in 1972.
Now we know that a gift from the Thrift Shop for Dad isn’t going to make up for all those years of official government neglect. And we know that what Dad wants most is your love and respect, and to know that he’s made a difference in your life. BUT it wouldn’t hurt to add a little something, and he’ll be pleased that you made the thrifty choice of shopping with ALI.
We have items that would suit Dads of all ages and personalities (INCLUDING a huge supply of Father’s Day cards!). Stop in and pick out something that will make Dad feel special. And you’ll probably save enough that you can afford to take him out for a Father’s Day dinner!
