NEW ANGELS FURNITURE STORE AT THE ANGELS DONATION CENTER WILL BE OPEN THIS SATURDAY AUGUST 12 FROM 8AM-1:30PM AS AN EXPERIMENT.

Come visit the Angels Furniture Store at 112 Needmore Lane this Saturday. Go to the lower driveway. It is open for the first time on a Saturday as a convenience to people unable to stop by during typical working hours. Depending on the popularity, perhaps some other Saturdays could be scheduled later on.

By the way, a reminder that the mini-barn on the upper driveway at the Angels Donation Center is where all small items should be placed inside (to protect them from the weather and to avoid an unsightly mess). All donated furniture should be delivered to the lower driveway and onto the dock of the new furniture store. Sorry, we are unable to accept mattresses due to health code, tube TVs due to hazardous material, or child car seats due to safety code. Those items must be taken to the Country Transfer Station on Storkers Knob Rd.

STUDENT DESKS. School is starting soon. Do you need a student desk? In addition to a couple of regular style student desks, there are a half dozen sewing machine cabinets that need a bit of polish, and in some cases a minor amount of woodwork, to convert the top to a flat desk. Some are very narrow, for very tight spaces, where the top folds out as needed. From $15 and up. Chairs are extra, and there are many to choose from.

NO LUCK ON TRUCK. HOW ABOUT A VAN?
Angels Donation Center has received no response on a need for a donated pickup truck, so we will try option #2. We could get by with a van – like an Econoline van, not a passenger van. The purpose is to transport donations to the stores. So, it will be packed with boxes, containers, picture frames, books, clothing, and furniture. Due to traveling a very short distance a few times a week, it can be a gas hog, it does not need to look pretty, and Angels has a mechanic friend who has volunteered to do some repairs if necessary. Please contact Priscilla at the Angels Donation Center during their open hours Mon-Wed 8am-2pm or Fridays 8am-noon. Or, or call her cell phone at two three nine nine eight eight nine.

Below is an example of the type of vehicle being sought.  It can have a popup top, it can have windows, The larger it is, the more it can hold, and the fewer trips.  The vehicle will be loaded at the Donation Center over a couple days, then taken to the Store. The unloading takes a few hours depending on the availability of volunteers.

FINE CHINA SETTINGS FOR 10 AT ANGELS BOUTIQUE
Place settings for a gathering of 10, a lovely 70 piece set of Habsburg fine china dishes, vintage, made in Austria. If you are unsure whether this is a fantastically low price, go take a look at eBay listings of this pattern (we did). Priced at $70 for the entire set. That is only $7 per person at the table. I doubt you can find a plastic set for that low price.

Stop by for a look, we are next door to the Angels in the Attic Store, adjacent to the Floyd Country Store.

ANGELS DONATION CENTER FURNITURE SALES BUILDING CLOSE TO OPENING
The new furniture donation center building for drop-off and sales of furniture is getting close to opening. The contractors are still working on removing dirt and debris from the future parking area, also on finishing the driveway, and in addition on spreading the topsoil back to its new positions. There will be an announcement of the grand opening.

Because furniture has been jammed into an old house, and into various other locations pending the building completion, when it all was moved into the new building a few days ago, it completely filled all the space. There are now aisles so that all items can be viewed, and easily taken to the dock when purchased.

Although the store is not open yet, if there are people who have an immediate need (due to damage to their possessions, or moving into a new location), you may stop by the drop off shed on the upper driveway and ask one of the volunteers for a safe escorted viewing.

The Angels Donation Center is located at the intersection of Highway 8 and Needmore lane, and is open M, T, W 8am-2pm and on Fridays closes at noon. However, you can drop off donations at any time in the shed (please do not leave any items outside in the weather). We cannot accept TVs, mattresses, chemicals, or child car seats, for health and safety reasons. Furniture donations can be handled in a few days when the grand opening occurs.

NOW IS THE TIME TO BUY BACK-TO-SCHOOL CLOTHING
Here are photos of the Angels in the Attic Store price lists. One is for clothing for elementary school children (up to size 20). Otherwise, use the Men and Women’s price list for students above size 20. You can outfit all of your children who are students for a tiny fraction of the cost at department stores in Christiansburg.

A NEED FOR A PICKUP TRUCK – DONATION SOUGHT
The Angels Donation Center at 112 Needmore Lane needs a pickup truck to haul tall items locally, that do not fit into the current van. The pickup can be a gas hog, and it does not have to look pretty, since it will be used only for short trips a few days a week locally around Floyd. It needs to be safe (good brakes), and the drivers seat needs to be able to adjust for the lady drivers. You may stop by to discuss this with Priscilla on Mon, Tue, Wed, Fri between 8am-2pm at the Angels Donation Center, or call her cell at two three nine, nine eight eight nine.

Since Angels in the Attic is a charitable organization, you may be able to claim an income tax deduction for the value of the truck.
