Volunteers of America National Thrift Shopping Day Celebration
National Thrift Shopping Day is Friday, August 17 and Volunteers of America www.voago.org is celebrating by holding a 50% off sale. The entire store will be marked half-off for the day.
As an extra bonus, every shopper who spends $25 will get a free reusable shopping bag (below is a mock-up of the bag). And if shoppers just can’t quite make it to $25, the bags can be purchased for $3 each.
Well, I tried to take some pictures of my $50 buying trip but my camera seems to be on the fritz; it keeps eating the pictures (I take pictures and they never appear on the memory)! Truthfully, I struck out (and the camera is on the fritz) and was unable to find more than a couple of small items (an ashtray and a Boontonware platter). With that in mind, I quickly looked back in my photo archives and found these pictures of great items that I found at various Volunteers of America stores in the past year.
