CONTACT INFORMATION. This information already exists in another section of this Angels in the Attic website, under the heading of “Contact Us, Open Hours” but it is worth repeating here for people new to using this site, or people new to Floyd County and not familiar with the Angels stores.

The only telephone number for Angels is at the main store Angels in the Attic, and is 540-745-4500 and is staffed only during open hours. Please leave a message if no one answers. Your call will be returned the next day of operation. At the other stores, volunteers only have their personal cell phones because of a tight budget dedicated to serving the people of Floyd County.

Mailing address: Angels in the Attic, P.O. Box 405, Floyd, VA 24091. Angel’s has a website at angelsintheattic.org

Please email Angels in the Attic regarding volunteering, or general information, at angelsfloydinfo@gmail.com Responses, done by volunteers, may take up to 48 hours.

ANGELS DONATION CENTER and ANGELS FURNITURE STORE hours and days of operation:
The Angels Donation Center is always open, around the clock, to drop off donations inside the minibarn, 7 days a week. Please do not leave donations outside because they will be ruined by the weather. For furniture donations, take to the lower driveway and place on the concrete pad beneath the overhang for protection from the weather. The sole location for dropping off donations of all kinds, and for the Angels Furniture Store, is 112 Needmore Lane, Floyd, VA, which is located on the corner of Route 8 and Needmore Lane next door to the Harvest Moon Food Store
For ANGELS FURNITURE STORE purchases, please pay first prior to pickup, and the following open hours apply: Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays 9 am to 2 pm. Closed Mondays, Thursdays, and Sundays. It is best if you drop off large items (such as furniture) during the Furniture Store open hours so they can be taken into the building out of the weather, and the Furniture Store is located at the second driveway of the house where the Angels Donation minibarn is situated.

ITEMS ARE FLYING OFF THE SHELVES AT ANGEL’S FOUR STORES
Angels in the Attic
Angels Boutique
Angels Christmas Store
Angels Furniture Store

The volunteers have been too busy tending to customers to take photos and write up about available items, and in any case with items selling quickly, they may be gone by the time a shopper shows up.

So, the only solution for the Holidays is to go to each store to examine what is in stock at that moment, and make your purchases. For the hours and days that each store is open (and they each have different hours and days), go to the website angelsintheattic.org

ANGELS CHRISTMAS STORE OPENS SOON
We open the Christmas Store on October 18th, 2019. Open days are Tuesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays 9AM to 5PM (including yes, will ill be open the Friday and Saturday after Thanksgiving).

The volunteers have been saving holiday donations since the day after Christmas last year, in anticipation of the 2019 grand opening.

The Angels Christmas Store is located on E Main St in Floyd VA, in the former Odd Fellows Lodge (no mailing address) next door to the building of The Floyd Press (which is 710 E. Main St if you use your auto’s or cellphone GPS), on the opposite side of the street from the CVS Floyd Pharmacy and near the US Post Office.

These results were announced at the annual meeting of the volunteers earlier this year, but they are now published along with a pie chart graphic to displaying detail where the sales proceeds after expenses went to local charitable organizations. A copy will also be posted on the web site, and at each of the five Angels facilities: Angels Donation Center, Angels Furniture Store, Angels in the Attic Store, Angels Boutique, and the Angels Christmas Store.

The Angels Ministry Inc (the parent organization’s name) believes in full disclosure about its activities.

HAVE YOU ALWAYS HAD A SECRET DESIRE TO PLAY GERSHWIN’S ARRANGEMENT “I’VE GOT RHYTHM” FOR 4 PIANOS OR BACH’S CONCERTO FOR 4 PIANOS? NOW IS YOUR CHANCE. FOUR PIANOS ARE FOR IMMEDIATE SALE AT ANGELS FURNITURE STORE.
The prices range from only $40 to $50. They are all functional, but would likely benefit from tuning.

If you have 3 other pianist friends, perhaps we can arrange for all to simultaneously play on them at the Angels Furniture Store which is open Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays from 9am – 2pm. The Angels Furniture Store operates more hours and days than the Angels in the Attic Store because the Angels Donation Center is staffed with volunteers next door at 112 Needmore Lane in Floyd Virginia at the intersection of Hwy 8, and is at the edge of town.

BACK TO THE FUTURE: 1955. A GREAT GIFT FOR SOMEONE WHO GRADUATED IN ENGINEERING PRIOR TO POCKET CALCULATORS (FIRST AVAILABLE IN EARLY 1970’s)?
This K&E Keuffel and Esser slide rule is a very rare find, what with its being in top condition, plus comes with an original manual, plus the leather carrying case which would fasten to a student’s belt, and even the classy green box it came in at the university store.

This particular model is a Dual Base Log Log Decitrig, which was the high end model suitable for a course in electrical engineering. A competitive model was made by Pickett.

This one pictured is available at the Angels Boutique in downtown Floyd VA for only $45. Check eBay for comparable instruments costing around $325.

Despite its age and obsolescence, many computations, even today, could be done faster than someone punching buttons on a scientific pocket calculator. Its accuracy was good enough to put a man on the moon. For example, it was good enough to calculate the center of gravity for mechanical parts that made up the Apollo space capsule – I saw it being done.
