Each week, we'll be doing cash buying for one area in the shop that really needs inventory. Again this week, it's PLUS SIZES.Here's how it works... bring your plus size fashions (size 1X/18 and up) 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 plus size pieces 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 plus sizes for cash all week- through Thursday, June 25th. Check next week's newsletter to see what the next buy-for-cash department will be.

Happy Father's Day!

The Gift That Keeps On Giving

Don't need another blender? Include
Heifer International in your wedding registry. HI is a nonprofit charitable organization based in Little Rock, Arkansas, dedicated to relieving global hunger and poverty. It provides gifts of livestock and plants, as well as education in sustainable agriculture, to financially-disadvantaged families around the world.

HI gives gifts of regionally appropriate livestock, as well as tree seedlings. As of 2006, these animals and plants have been distributed in more than 125 countries around the globe. Each gift perpetuates HI's interest in agroecology and sustainability.
Heifer International works to ensure that the gift of each animal will eventually help an entire community to become self-sustaining. Animals such as goats, water buffalo and camels are "seven M" animals: they provide meat, milk, muscle, manure, money, materials and motivation. Heifer International provides a breeding animal along with the gift animal so that it can produce offspring. Participating families are required to "pass on the gift"- they must give at least one of the female offspring to a neighbor who has undergone Heifer's training. In time, that neighbor will pass along one of the offspring of its animal, and so on.

Currently, HI is embarking on a campaign called Hope for the Future, which is dedicated to raising $800 million by 2010 to lift five million families worldwide to self-reliance. Traditionally Heifer raises funds from chapters organized around schools, colleges and churches. It also offers a wedding registry in which engaged couples can register for gifts to Heifer instead of traditional wedding presents.

Beats the heck out of yet another blender.

Talk about Bargains!

Last Friday, Rachel and I stopped by Kelly and Mike Withrow's Just $2.00 store on Shallowford Rd. in front of Wal-Mart.

I thought I'd died and gone to bargain shopping heaven! The place was packed with "As seen on TV" items- PedEggs, Green Bags, energy saving light bulbs, Song En (an abrasive pad for legs that you use instead of shaving- Rachel swears by it) and lots more. All for $2.00! Kelly says they have plenty in stock, but to be safe, be sure to stop by soon- it's going fast!
