The Indian Valley Thrift Shop plans to reopen. The beloved thrift shop, however needs the help of the community to thrive.
The Indian Valley Thrift Shop Association will hold a Thrift Shop Fundraiser on Friday, November 11, Veteran’s Day, from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. and again on Saturday November 12, from 8 a.m. to noon.
The fundraiser will be held at The Spot along Pine Street in Greenville where the thrift shop building will eventually be. The proceeds from the sale will go toward reopening the thrift shop and fulfilling the scholarships promised last year to Indian Valley youth attending college.
“This is an opportunity for our faithful friends, who have been storing their donations waiting for the shop’s reopening, to bring them to us on Thursday, November 10 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. to prepare for the two-day sale,” said organizer Sherilyn Schwartz.
However, people must pre-register (see cell numbers below) so that sufficient tables and room will be available. The thrift shop volunteers are requesting that people who donate return during the sale to help sell their items if they are able to do so.
On Friday the “pop-up-sale” fundraiser will coincide with the Veteran’s Day parade along Pine and Main Streets (which begins at 11 a.m.) and the Greenville Harvest Celebration honoring our veteran’s and the changing of the seasons (which begins at 1 p.m).
