What's new at N2N?

Golly gee, we've gotten in lots...the cash buying has nearly doubled the size of our scrubs rack. We've gotten in bigger kid's clothes, shoes, shorts and capris and baby clothes. We have lots of books on cassette and CD to make those long vacation road trips seem shorter.

We've suddenly had a big demand for swimsuits, especially for men and boys. Folks are going over to the Frances Meadows Center to swim, only to discover that they can't be admitted if they're not wearing a REAL swimsuit. Shorts just don't cut it. sure to bring in all your surplus swimsuits when you come in to trade.

Each week, we'll be doing cash buying for one area in the shop that really needs inventory. For the second week, it's SCRUBS.

Here's how it works... bring your scrubs that are in perfect condition. We'll buy them for cash. You can bring in other clothing and accessories as well- we'll buy them for credit as usual. Please pack your scrubs separately and let us know that you have cash items when you come in. Buying hours are the same: Monday thru Thursday 10AM to 4PM and other times by prior arrangement.

We'll be buying scrubs for cash all week- through Thursday, June 4th. Check next week's newsletter to see what the next buy-for-cash department will be.

Two Thumbs Up

The other night I gave in to my insomnia and started watching TV. Since the only things playing at 3 AM are Sham-Wow informercials and 15 year-old episodes of Law and Order, I started looking on the Internet. On, I discovered an awesome series. I don't remember ever seeing promos for it when it ran on network TV. It's called "Kings".

It's based on the King David story from the Old Testament, but set in the 21st century. There's King Silas Benjamin (King Saul of the tribe of Benjamin, first king of Israel), David Shepherd (David, the shepherd), the king’s son Jack (Jonathan), his daughter Michelle (Michal), and the Rev. Ephraim Samuels (the Prophet Samuel). It's filmed in New York City which has been turned into the city of Shiloh in the country of Gilboa.The writers have created a kingdom that's familiar, with taxis and plasma TVs and all the trappings of modern day but with biblical allusions at every turn. The Goliath in the show is a huge tank that David, a soldier, destroys in order to save a hostage who turns out to be the king's son. Then it really gets interesting.

There are five full episodes available online and the series resumes in June. Click
