Everyone knows that the Treasure Chest store is a great place for bargains. Our slogan, “Great Deals for a Great Cause” is well earned. However, lately we have received some donations of exceptionally fine merchandise, enough to warrant a special sale of “upscale” items with somewhat higher prices. These include designer handbags, specialty jewelry, antiques and collectibles, fine art, and vintage wares. Some things are uniquely suited to men such as name-brand watches and fountain pens.
The “Upscale Resale” Boutique will take place Friday, October 18 (details to follow). This will be a great opportunity to shop for one-of-a-kind gifts and treasures. Family and friends are welcome.
If you have been considering donating items but don’t want to see your valuable possessions sold for bargain basement prices, now is the time to act. You can add your upscale items to this special sale by calling Mary Chor, Treasure Chest Director, 301-332-5111, to arrange for a volunteer to come to pick up your special item. A tag with the item’s history and value would be much appreciated.
Please help spread the word about donations of upscale items. We want the sale to be chock full of interesting and reasonably-priced merchandise. As always, 100% of proceeds goes to Riderwood’s Benevolent Care Fund.
