An update from the Elizabethtown Thrift Shop. They want everyone to know that with this frigid weather we've been having, that they have lots of thick cozy sweaters, winter coats, and toasty warm bedding for sale. It's not too early to shop for Valentine's Day either, they have a few nice goodies for that special someone. There's a correction in their posted hours, Thursdays they are open from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m., and Fridays, they are open only from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. They are not open Friday evenings.
Remember to shop locally for your Valentine's Day cards and gifts, invest in our local economy.
