Financial Statement and Pie Chart of Supported Programs is released for the year 2017 by Floyd County Angels Ministries Inc., the umbrella organization for Angels in the Attic Store, Angels Boutique, Angels Furniture Store, Angels Donation Center, and Angels Christmas Store.

For the purpose of transparency and full disclosure, here is the official financial statement for Angels, which summarizes the final results for all the efforts of the 80+ volunteers, also the volunteers of the Angels Board of Directors.

The Board of Directors makes the final decisions for which (of the many organizations in the area) can be supported by funds from Angels.  There are some changes from year to year, as circumstances may change.

For the year 2017, an amazing 64.6% of all sales went to supported programs. The balance went to the expenses of the operations, such as insurance, water & sewer, electricity, repairs and maintenance. This incredible percentage is due to the support of a large team of volunteers who toil not only at the counters but behind the scenes sorting donations, trucking it to the stores, stocking the shelves and racks, pricing items, sweeping and dusting, and much more.

You will find copies of both documents posted in the window of Angels in the Attic Store, as has been the practice of the past few years.

ONLY 5 DAYS UNTIL THE LABOR DAY WEEKEND SIDEWALK SALE ON THIS SATURDAY SEPT 1 AT ANGELS BOUTIQUE 10 AM-2 PM. WONDERFUL WALL ART AND DAZZLING DISHES ARE FEATURED
Wall art includes paintings on canvas, metal, or wood, some with beautiful frames. There are two paintings of tigers (the mystery tiger in the shadows photo of a few days ago is now revealed). The dishes category includes vases, sets, plates, and platters. The photos below are but a tiny sampling of the many, many, items to give you an idea of the kinds of treasures.

These items are in process of being priced and dusted, so they are not available for display or sale until the day of the sidewalk sale. They are not accessible to me to provide measurements, because of that processing. So, plan for an outing Saturday and if you are especially interested in particular items, then be there at opening time. Art dealers and antique dealers are welcome, because of the especially low prices.

Angels Boutique is located adjacent to the Angels in the Attic Store in downtown Floyd, VA and is next door to the famous bluegrass venue, the Floyd Country Store (which has great food and ice cream cones, by the way), so don’t miss this great way to leisurely spend one of the three days of the Labor Day Weekend close to your home, whether it be in Christiansburg, Blacksburg, Salem, or Roanoke.
