Do you have an ugly sweater party coming up? The Arc Thrift Shore is a great place to find one. I’ve shopped at the Arc Thrift Stores for years. They have all kinds of goodies, from nicknacks to housewares to furniture to clothes and shoes, to books. They are a non-profit organization “dedicated to creating and funding programs that serve those individuals living with intellectual/developmental disabilities, with complex and evolving needs.”
If you are cleaning out your closets at this time of year to get a year-end tax deduction, The Arc will also gladly accept your donations.
If you don’t have an Arc Thrift Store in your area, check out Goodwill or Habitat For Humanity stores. They also offer discounts and take donations. Everyday is senior discount day at the Fort Collins Restore (15% off). Goodwill in Loveland has a 15% senior discount everyday and 25% off on Mondays. Check goodwill.org or habitat.org for discounts in the thrift shops near you.
If you find your award-winning ugly sweater at a thrift shop, send me a pic. I’d love to see it! Happy shopping!
