ANGELS FINANCIALS 2020 TO DATE

Remarks by the Angels Media Volunteer about Floyd County Angels Ministries Financial Statement Jan-Aug 2020. Angels is a non-profit 501c3 charitable organization.

As you can see in the accompanying Income Statement, Angels in the Attic has had a tough year to date in 2020, when compared year to date in 2019. Like a lot of organizations, Covid-19 virus has had a huge negative impact. Sales from stores is way down by nearly 48%. All the Angels Stores were closed for a few months, during which sales income of course was at or near zero. Angels used some reserves (with prudence) to keep Supported Programs and Projects somewhat less impacted, so it is down by about 20%. Click the documents below to expand them for better viewing.

Some volunteers could no longer devote as many hours, or in some cases come in at all due to pre-existing conditions, so Tuesdays were dropped from the days open schedule, which of course lowered sales, as well as lowered ongoing funding to Supported Programs.

Unfortunately, some expenses go on without much reduction, including major ones like utilities and insurance.

All we can do, is to get through all of this challenge, as best we can, under the direction of the volunteer Board of Directors, and with the tireless support of the many volunteers.

ANGELS BOUTIQUE UNVEILS A NEW ANGEL

The Angels Boutique is proud to announce a new angel statue to roll outside during open hours.

The current wooden angel was starting to fall apart. It was originally donated by, we recall, a youth as a school project several years ago. A couple years ago, it was renovated by a local handyman as much as possible after it started to fall apart, and then was repainted and relettered by Cappy Spangler. That extended its life for a couple years.

This new one was redesigned, fabricated, assembled, painted, and lettered by a local team of two, Roger Kienzle and Barbara Pleasant, one a skilled carpenter and the other a skilled artist. Many thanks to these two for their significant donation of time and funds, as well as their creativity to re-imagine an updated look for the angel.

I think a name for the angel would be in order, something like “Angelica” or ???. Reply with your ideas for naming.

The new angel has gained a whole new cheery look and wheels too, which makes it easier for the volunteers to roll out, and roll back in at the end of the day.

The Angel’s Boutique is located adjacent to the Angels in the Attic Store, which is next door to the world famous Floyd Country Store on Hwy 9 a block from the sole traffic signal in the Town of Floyd, VA. Open hours are Fridays 10am-4pm and Saturdays 10am-2pm.

The Angels Boutique is operating with a shortage of volunteers so if you find it closed during open hours, that is the reason. If you view something in the window that you are seriously considering buying, go to the Angels in the Attic Store and they can bring it out.

RARE AND UNUSUAL HADDORFF VERTICHORD GRAND PIANO FOR SALE

Recently donated to Angels in the Attic Furniture Store. It was built around the 1930’s and refurbished in the 1970’s. It is an upright grand piano. An appraisal pegged the value in the $2,000 to $3,000 range but Angels has decided to offer it at $1,200. It is approximately 5 feet long and 4 ft tall. It could be called an upright grand piano.

“The Vertichord was the original and the prototype of all of the pianos which have since come to be known as Spinets and Consoles and with now account for the great majority of the total piano production. The basic design and construction of the Vertichord are fully covered by patents. The Vertichord presents a further sensational improvement in small piano tonal development in the form of a secondary sound board connected with the main board by means of a “tone post” called the acoustic coupler. This invention increases the sound board area by more than half, with a corresponding improvement in the power and quality of tone.”
