It’s January sales time at our own awesome little department store known as the Elizabethtown Thrift Shop. The room angels as the volunteers are called, want you to know that the 25-cent book sale continues through the end of the month. There is a red dot sale going on in the men’s department. Beginning Monday, Jan. 27, through to Feb. 1, all adult only winter coats are half price. In the ladies department look for the reduced sale rack with some very fashionable items for your shopping pleasure. They hope you’ve been clearing out those post holiday items and saving them for the next collection day on Saturday, Feb. 1, from 10 a.m. until noon at the United Church of Christ parish hall. If you are interested in becoming a volunteer, contact a current volunteer, stop in at the shop or if you have any questions, you may call the shop at 873-6518.
