Thrift Shop: It’s a celebration

It’s a celebration! Feb. 13 is Fat Tuesday, Feb. 14 is Valentine’s Day, Feb. 16 is Chinese New Year, and the Thrift Shop is ready to help you celebrate.

We have beautiful Mardi Gras masks to add an element of mystery and intrigue to your celebration. Fun fact #1:  float riders in New Orleans are required to wear masks by law. Fun fact #2: It is considered rude and distasteful to wear masks on Ash Wednesday and after, since Lent has officially begun.

We’re here to help you find the perfect Valentine’s Day gift. On Feb. 6 and 7, ladies blazers and suits will be half-price. On Feb. 9 and 10, we are having a trunk sale of fine ladies purses — Coach, Marc by Marc Jacobs, Kate Spade, Lodis, Hobo, Zac Posen, etc. Fun fact #3: It’s OK to buy yourself a Valentine’s Day present.

But wait, there’s more: Chinese New Year. Come see our great selection of decorations and prepare for the Year of the Dog. Fun fact #4: the celebration lasts for 15 days — woo hoo!

Visit soon at 21B Governor Street. Remember, applications for Thrift Shop grants are due Feb. 15. More information is available at
