Dollars & Sense: Secondhand Store Fights Breast Cancer

Thursday, October 09, 2003

Call me heartless, but I rarely buy anything from charities unless I want it or need it. I'd rather write a check than be guilted into buying more magazines or candles. I apply the same standard when I go into nonprofit surplus or thrift shops. I don't buy something I don't need just to "make a contribution." Apparently, I'm not the only one who shops that way. When Barbara Hensley of Shakopee opened the Hope Chest resale shop in Orono, she envisioned "excellent quality at excellent prices for an excellent cause." Quality first. And Hensley's mantra comes through loud and clear.

The soft lighting, exquisite groupings of furniture donated from the International Market Square ASID sample sale, and racks with merchandise including St. John Knit separates priced between $150 and $300 tell shoppers this is no "thrift shop."
