Some eye catching things at CAP thrift store


Bright colors abound in the CAP thrift store these days. The great segment on TV sent a flurry of donations, so bring a friend for some great deals.

Every Tues in November there is 50% off any ONE item under 25.00.

There are THREE 1/2 price days as well. Downloading the calender has been a problem, but if you email me it can be sent individually.

This large sweater is in the mens section, but it would look good on a woman as well. It is only 4.00!

All, proceeds benefit the animals at Citizens for Animal Protection.

This large soft sided suitcase is only 25.00. Save money while holiday traveling this year. 

This unusual tray is multipurpose and deceptively sturdy-only 6.00

Sister, one of the resident cats says "Don't even think of buying anything in this stack.
There are great buys all over the store. Now scram!" :)

In a do it yourself blog recently there was a neat way to make a faux transom with a long mirror turned sideways and painted strips of wood applied to it.
These pillows attached in a line in a similiar fashion would make a nice, inexpensive headboard!
Only 4.00 each

HUGE suitcase in excellent condition, on wheels, pockets everywhere, only 45.00

1/2 price day at CAP thrift store TODAY!

Ok, they let Hendricks think you are shopping just to keep him in this lifestyle, but you are actually helping lots of shelter animals. Four adult cats live at the thrift store and there are usually kittens in foster cages for adoption;100% of the proceeds benefit dogs, cats, birds, small mammals, even reptiles at times.

At times people will say "Is that cat real?" Hendricks says "Don't get between me and the food bowl or you will get hurt" :)

 This ringneck parakeet was adopted recently at CAP. Birds and bunnies require not only dry food but fresh veggies as well.

Anna is undergoing expensive heartworm treatment before adoption. Unlike many other shelters and rescues, CAP arranges for experienced foster homes and treatment so adopters are not faced with a sick dog and  expenses. Your donations and shopping at the CAP thrift store supports this extensive work.
The 3rd Thursday of the month is 1/2 price day. That's today! That's almost everything in the store-just a few exceptions. Check it out.
