Thrift Shop: Ride ‘em cowboy

Ride ‘em cowboy. A pair of brown suede working chaps is available at the Thrift Shop this week. Protect your legs as you trail ride or work around the barn, or if you don’t have horses or a barn, wear the chaps for protection doing some heavy-duty yard work. Also, perhaps you or someone you know could use an IRH Olympian velveteen riding helmet.

For the musically inclined, come see the Squier Strat electric guitar by Fender. This guitar is in fine condition and ideal for a beginner looking for an easy-to-play, affordable instrument.

Visit our “pit stop” on Saturday as we join in Ridgefield Supply’s grand opening celebration. After you’ve tried the racing simulator and ogled over Dale Earnhardt Jr’s 88 car, come check out our supply of cars – toys, books, household items – and our checkered patterned clothes to commemorate capturing the checkered flag.

Visit the Thrift Shop Monday through Friday from 12 to 4 and Saturday from 10 to 2 at 21B Governor Street. Your purchases and donations help support more than 40 local non-profit organizations.
