One-of-a-kind treasures found in ALI Thrift Shop

By Marta Mahoney

Recently I went to the 50th anniversary of the Sawdust Festival in Laguna Beach. Everybody loves the Sawdust Festival, where you can find hand-crafted items ranging from artwork to pottery and jewelry.  Craft trends change over time (remember macrame plant hangers?), but if you’re looking for a unique NEW gift for someone (v. a previously-owned gift, which you will of course buy at the thrift shop), this is the place.

We have some unique, one-of-a-kind items at the thrift shop, too! Check out our greeting cards and gift tags. Some of our artistic members love to make beautiful cards and gift tags for all occasions, which they donate to be sold at the thrift shop. These cards and tags are works of art in themselves, and usually priced at only $2 – $3. They’d be perfect if you’re giving a gift you bought at the Sawdust Festival. Or a gift you bought at the thrift shop. Or a gift you bought anywhere else. (And it’s always good to be prepared – pick out a selection to have on hand for the future!) See you in the store!
