What’s Up in the Attic mid-August

LINENS GALORE AT THE ANGELS IN THE ATTIC STORE, FINE JEWELRY AT THE ANGELS BOUTIQUE
At this time, The Attic Store in downtown Floyd is stocked with lots of linens: sheets, towels, pillows and pillowcases, placemats, napkins, and tablecloths.
We have a small hamster cage and a ten gallon aquarium for sale. Aquariums may be used for fish, of course, but they also make cool terrariums. If interested, check with a volunteer.
Remember, CD’s are still 2 for 50¢, and video tapes are 5 for $1.00.
At the Angels Furniture store you may be interested in a collection of bike racks for sale. We also have quite a bit of exercise equipment for sale at various prices.
At the Angels Boutique, adjacent to the Attic Store, a recent arrival is an ornate Lois Hill sterling silver bracelet, very expensive at stores but only $75. See the photo below. Matching sterling earrings at $40 will be set aside until the bracelet is sold, in case someone wants the set (ask to view them).
Also at the Boutique is a custom necklace for $30, thought to be sterling, with a burgundy-like stone. The lime jacket it is posed against, is JonesNY only $8.

METAL, AND GLASS, COLLECTIBLES AT ANGELS BOUTIQUE ON SATURDAY AUGUST 4 FROM 10 AM – 2 PM DURING A SIDEWALK SALE. A HUGE COLLECTION.

On Saturday, August 4, we at the Angels Boutique will have volunteer cashiers out on the sidewalk (next to the Angels in the Attic Store in downtown Floyd VA), with our already low prices even lower on “Metal & More” (silver-plated, brass, copper moulds, black metal), plus “Clear & Colorful Glass” (decorative: bowls, creamers, vases, glasses, plates), many of which are vintage pieces. The regular Angels Boutique retail store will also be open for browsing during this sidewalk sale.

These can be gifts to yourself, for your home, or for friends and relatives, all the while each purchase supports the needy because Angels is a non-profit organization supporting local charitable groups. So save this date on your calendar right now: Saturday, August 4, 10am-2:00pm during and after the Farmer’s Market across the street!

You may have a young adult entering college this August. They may be setting up a dorm room or an apartment. Keep in mind all the items at the Angels in the Attic Store that will save you money and help to furnish a student’s living quarters: sheets, blankets, bedspreads, towels, dishes, flatware, pots, pans, knives and spatulas. At The Furniture store on Needmore Lane, you may find a bed-frame, desk, bookshelf, or night table.

IF YOUR HOME OFFICE OR PLACE OF BUSINESS OR STUDENT BEDROOM NEEDS DESKS, TABLES, CHAIRS, OR CREDENZAS, COME TO THE ANGELS FURNITURE STORE
You will find very low prices for desks, credenzas, tables, bookcases, and file cabinets at the Angels Furniture Store located at 112 Needmore Lane in Floyd VA, at the lower driveway of the Angels Donation Center. It is open M,T,W,F 9-2 and Saturdays 9-1. If the volunteers are momentarily away, go up to the Donation Center brick house and knock, since during hot weather and cold weather they must keep the upper driveway rollup doors closed. There is also a new bell next to the rollup door to signal the volunteers at the brick house that someone needs assistance.

In addition to office furniture, you will also find a church pew, a piano, beds, sofas, and chairs available. Also there is a lot of medical apparatus, with many crutches, canes, and some walkers at a very, very  low price – because people who are hurting do not need to be asked to pay a lot.

OCCASIONAL VOLUNTEERS REALLY NEEDED, NOW, AT ANGELS BOUTIQUE, TO HANDLE INCREASED SUMMER CUSTOMERS
Angels’ Boutique is in great need of more folks to sign up at the Boutique for just one (3 or 4 hour) shift and as little as once a month, to interact with and help customers who come into the store. The Angels Boutique has a separate entrance next to the Angels in the Attic store.

The Boutique is open on Tuesdays (10-4p), Fridays (10-7p) and Saturdays (10-2p), and with 28 time slots per month, it takes 28 volunteers to say “yes!” If you’re not able to be there on a regular basis, we’d love to hear from you if you’re willing to be an occasional “Sub.” (We also provide the easy training). If you are interested, please email Ellie at angelsfloydinfo@gmail.com or come in to the Boutique.

The more upscale items that are donated to Angels, are sent over to the “Angels’ Boutique,” where everything is still bargain-priced, then the money from sales goes to help the needy in this area. Please let us know how you can help us in our efforts to benefit YOUR Floyd County community.

WEDDING OUTFITS, JEWELRY, HOME FURNISHINGS, SHORTS, JEANS, ALL FLY OUT THE DOOR QUICKLY.
At the Angels in the Attic Store, we are constantly restocking our shelves. Merchandise is brought from The Donation Center to the back room at The Attic by van. The manager also brings a full load in her car, on a daily basis. Goods are then sorted, by our back room staff, into the shelf or rack it will be placed. This is a continuous process, so the stock on display constantly changes. If you can’t find your item right away, check back in an hour!


The Angels Boutique has some wedding dresses for the bride and the flower girls, and a large stock of gifts.


Our Donation Center is located at the corner of Needmore and Route 8. The following ideas may be helpful when you are considering a donation. Angels does not have facilities or staffing for cleaning, washing, drying, mending, repairing, or recycling goods. Therefore, it is helpful to us if your items are clean and in good repair. It’s easier if we don’t have to dispose of unsalable merchandise.


At the main Angels in the Attic Store, we have a donation jar at the checkout counter. We appreciate our generous customers who toss change and bills into the jar. That money is used for maintenance at our three stores: The Attic, The Boutique, and The Furniture Store.
Happy thrifting! Y’all come back!

WITH INCREASING SALES, ANGELS CAN GIVE BACK MORE
The sales in the Angels stores (Angels in the Attic, Angels Furniture Store, and Angels Boutique) have been increasing significantly in recent months.

Welcome to the Angels in the Attic Store

 

What this means are:
– there will be more funding returned to the community, to organizations feeding the hungry and assisting the needy,
– more and more people are finding that the Angels stores always have many bargains.
We thank all of you customers, and all the volunteers.

Angels is a non-profit organization located in Floyd, Virginia, and is composed of somewhere around 80 volunteers who sort and classify donations, pack the van multiple times a week to re-stock the Angels in the Attic Store and the Angels Boutique Store, and who take in furniture donations and staff the Angels Furniture Store for customers.

An annual financial report is posted on the window of the Angels in the Attic Store, or can be viewed on the website. The specific funding of community organizations is listed, which are determined by the Board of Directors composed of a cross-section of the community.
