SAFE PASSAGE THRIFT STORE MAKEOVER
Volunteers and staff at Safe Passage, Inc. Thrift Store in Melbourne have completely reorganized the store. Over the past few months, they have added 280 square feet of display space and over 50 feet of new racks.
“We now have a housewares and bedding room, a toy display area and an Individually Priced room for new and high quality merchandise,” said Executive Director Lora Umphries-Buck. “Our back hallway now offers furniture for sale.”
Recently, over 90 gowns and wedding dresses were donated to the store. “Most of these gowns have never been worn. They have the original price tags,” she said. “They would make great prom or pageant dresses.”
