During the hot, arid summer days in California, it's difficult to imagine that our neighbors to the south, South America that is, are in the midst of their winter season. Member volunteers at Assistance League Way Side Inn Thrift Shop, located at 3521 Golden Gate Way in Lafayette, will recreate a winter-like ambiance during the "Christmas in July" promotion, scheduled for Tuesday, July 17 through Saturday, July 28.
With user friendly hours from 10:00 A.M. to 4:00 P.M., you will have an opportunity to choose from a diverse selection of "holiday bling," as well as the traditional, timeless yule tide accouterments. You'll find items to grace the mantle, enhance your table, and serve as hostess gifts. Visions of colorful dishes, candle holders and silverware resting on fine table linens, and garlands laden with red berries will surely "dance in your heads." "More rapid than eagles," festive gift wrap, wreaths, toys, and attire will virtually swirl from the shelves and racks, bound over the counter, and charge the door, so there will be no guarantees as to Long these items will be available.
On the other hand, you might have a plethora of holiday "inventory" and would like to reclaim some of the square footage in your home without consulting a contractor. Member volunteers will be on hand to accept your donations, whether they're decorative eye candy pieces or gifts of yet-to-be-determined value that have mysteriously found their way to the uppermost shelf of your linen closet; not questions asked.
When you donate and purchase items at Assistance League Way Side Inn Thrift Shop, you will get two gifts in one. You will save money due to the low prices, as well as receive that one-size-fits-all tax receipt. Obviously, there will be a more significant reward, i.e., you'll help provide vision and hearing screening for preschoolers, instill the love of reading among elementary schoolchildren, outfit them for a more successful school experience, and provide educational puppet shows to teach them that they have options. Who can put a price on that?
