Assistance League® of Diablo Valley member volunteers thank all the dedicated dog lovers and quilting enthusiasts in our community who swept through the Way Side Inn Thrift Shop, located at 3521 Golden Gate Way, in Lafayette, like winter winds across the prairie. Calmer times now prevail as the blue smocked staffers prepare for upcoming events. You might also prepare by considering donating
On Tuesday, January 29, the entire shop will be bathed in reds and pinks in celebration of Valentine’s Day. Treat your friends, S.O.’s, and loved ones to such mementos as picture frames, pillows, candle holders, serving platters, and decorative pieces purchased at spartan prices. You might also add pajamas, socks, tee shirts, and stuffed animals to your shopping basket. Valentine’s Day apparel has been known to fly out the door as if on Cupid’s wings, so plan your shopping spree accordingly.
On Tuesday, February 12, the Way Side Inn Thrift Shop will harken back to earlier times with “Pioneer Days and Western Round Up”. Expect to find a mother lode of men’s, women’s, and children’s western boots, as well as cowboy hats, belts, bandanas, books, pillows, kachina dolls, pottery, and clothing. Ladies’ three-piece pioneer outfits comprising a dress, apron, and bonnet will be sold as sets or as individual pieces. Surely, your shopping bag and budget will allow for a beautifully stitched purse to finish off the ensemble.
Speaking of purses, February 26 will launch the annual Classic Coach and Dooney & Bourke Handbags event. It will include Dooney & Bourke's all-weather leather bags, most of them discontinued, yet known for their durability and recognizable style. This year’s selection of Coach handbags, finely crafted during the 70’s, 80’s, and 90’s, will be better than ever. An assortment of briefcases, attaches, and smaller items will also be available. You will breeze through February by enjoying authentic and high-end items, a tax receipt for your donations, and money left
over for the March events at Assistance League Way Side Inn Thrift Shop.
