The “changeover” is coming this Friday, April 5. Gone will be our fall and winter wardrobes, and in its place, our spring and summer garments and shoes will appear. Think shorts, capris, tee shirts, light blouses, and sandals! A group of dedicated volunteers will make this switch happen. Are you ready for a change? Don’t miss the first day of our changeover!

Our Easter merchandise has been set out. You will find decorations, plastic eggs, baskets, Easter grass, and more. Most of these items will be on the table by the front window.

Also on April 5, look for our prom dresses to be on display. They will cost $5.00. You may also find pretty shoes ($2.00 a pair) in the shoe room, to accompany your dress. Or, if you have a rich relative, you can check out a Macy’s sale online where a prom dress has a recent price cut to $107.

Don’t forget the Angels Furniture Store on Needmore Lane when you are doing spring cleaning and redecorating. Some items look like new. Other items are very low cost and can be upscaled by a crafter with some artistic paint.

FEATURED IN THE ANGELS IN THE ATTIC STORE THIS WEEK ARE: ATHLETIC WEAR, LOTS OF YARN, MEDICAL SCRUBS, AND PARTY ITEMS
– If you are thinking about spring (and who isn’t!) and getting in shape again, we have lots of athletic wear at The Attic Store. You may find just what you need for your workout.
– If you knit or crochet or do crafts, you will find three big tubs-full of yarn of all colors in the fabric section. It is located in the front room.
– Remember, scrubs are always $1.00, tops or bottoms. For those of you unfamiliar with the term, it is a hygienic outfit used by those in the medical profession. These run about $25 a set if bought new, but Angels is pleased to give our caretakers a big break.
We have a small area of party items in the front room. In it you may find: wrapping paper, gift bags, party hats, confetti, and number candles for a birthday cake. All items are 25¢ and up.
– In regards to The Angels Furniture Store, please be aware that we can only accept working appliances (stoves, refrigerators, washing machines, etc.). Your cooperation is appreciated. No one wants to purchase a non-working appliance, and we do not have the technicians with the skill to fix them, nor the parts. The store that sells you a new one will usually take a non-working one away. Otherwise, take them to the Transfer Station.
– If you have friends who do not use Facebook or websites, they can still keep up with the news from Angels by referring to The Floyd Press, in section B, in a column titled “The Thrifty Angel”.

FABRIC AND LAMPS GO TOGETHER! A LARGE SUPPLY OF FABRICS NOW AVAILABLE AT ANGELS IN THE ATTIC STORE, ALONG WITH A LARGE SUPPLY OF LAMPS FOR LIGHTING UP YOUR CRAFTS WORK. NO MORE SQUINTING. THE PRICES ARE ALWAYS VERY LOW.
Our fabric department is overflowing! If you are looking for a project, and you like to sew, check us out. We have solids and prints, which include cottons, wools, linens, some silk, and some upholstery material.

We also have an abundance of lamps at the moment. They are in the front room. One of them might be just what you are looking for.

At this time, we have an abundance of dishes. Our prices are so low that they can be competitive with paper products for your party. Some customers in the past have bought extra plates for a big party, then re-donated them back to Angels! Think of the Attic if someone you know is having a big party or setting up house-keeping.

Since this article is turned in four days before publication, we can never guarantee that items mentioned here will still be available. As of this writing, we have many small appliances at the Attic. A few of the items I noticed are: an electric griddle, several toaster ovens, a regular toaster, a rotisserie, a coffeemaker, and a crockpot. Come in and browse.

Read The Floyd Press each issue for an article in section B about the happenings at the Angels in the Attic. So if your internet and cellphone fail, you can keep up with the news.

VOLUNTEERS APPRECIATED; VOLUNTEERS NEEDED; CURIOUS THINGS FOUND IN ATTIC STORE.
We sometimes forget that without volunteers, Angels in the Attic, the Angels Furniture Store, the Angels Donation Center, and the Boutique could not function. Our volunteers always deserve a huge “thank you” and a pat on the back. We’d especially like to thank those volunteers who worked so faithfully at The Christmas Store for three months last fall.

Volunteers, as you know, come and go; we acquire some, and we lose some. Currently, we are in need of volunteers Wednesdays and Fridays at The Donation Center and the Furniture Store. If interested, contact Gennell at the Angels in the Attic Store during store hours.

As with most thrift stores, you never know what you will find. We always have lots of clothing, shoes, dishes, CDs, DVDs, and kitchen-ware. However, here are some interesting things we came across last week:
*2 irons, $2.00 each; *a brass and glass chandelier, $5.00; *a chafing dish, $2.00; *a glass Corningware 9” x 12” baking dish in good condition, $5.00;* a heavy, lovely, angled glass vase, $1.50; *2 glass carafes @ 25¢ each (in case the one for your coffee-maker gets broken!).

It should also be mentioned that we have piles of pocketbooks and purses. If you are willing to search and dig around a bit, you will probably find just what you are seeking. They are only $2.00 each.
