With the state of our present economy, people are looking for the best value for their dollar. There are fewer dollars to go around so one must make each dollar stretch as far as you can.
So to answer the question? No! anyone with money can shop in our thrift stores. Plus we offer vouchers for those that don’t have money, they just need to get a referral from any social services office, church or school.
Two good reasons to shop at our thrift stores. Number one your helping the homeless here in this county. Number two - by shopping the thrift stores your helping to save the planet by recycling.
Think about it, every body wins. We get money to help the homeless, you get to save money and we all help to save the planet.
So before you go out to the mall and your local discount retailer. Check your local thrift store. You will be doing your wallet and the planet a favor.
Here's a small sampling of things I remember:
This is just a sample of stuff we have. There is something for every collector We are still collecting stuff for this sale.
Sale is Saturday November 22 2008.
Doors open at 11am - In fairness to everyone,there will not be any early previews of any of the items.
Remember proceeds go towards our homeless shelter programs.
Need additional info call thrift store 703-444-5956 or 703-887-7397 -But don't call about individual items please.

Almost everything with a white colored sticker is 50% off this week. The exclusions are jewelry and Serrv items. That means almost an entire wall of merchandise is now 50% off my ticket price. Don't miss this deal it won't last long and these items will be shipped out after sale is over. That sale includes furniture as well. Newer merchandise being put out right now is a different color and it is not on sale. Don't forget that orange barbs on clothing items mean that you only pay $1 for that item. Clothing sale last only though 9/6/08.
Now the time to start stocking up for Christmas.

This beautiful clock just came to the Ashburn Site. I got this from our store in Sterling. they just didn't have the space to display it right.
Check this link out and see the specifications for this clock. Then google it and you find out that it retails for around $1200 on sale. Plus shipping.
Since I'm a thrift store I won't ask. $1200 but I am asking $300. Available to the first person to come in a purchase. It is not eligible for any discounts. It really is a nice piece. this is truely a one of a kind piece for us. You don't see a piece this quality given to a thrift store very often.
No phone calls please, just stop by and take a look. I'm at 20684 Ashburn Road, Ashburn, VA 20147. Right next to the Ashburn Fire Department in Old Ashburn.
FYI - this is a wall mounted clock. Make sure you know what your doing before installing this on your wall. It does not sit on a mantel. It has a shaped bottom.

After being open a week, I can't say thank you enough to the folks in Ashburn who have stopped by to say Hi and welcome to the community. I've gotten a tremendous amount of people who want to volunteer with us.We're finding our way around our new diggs and getting the kinks worked out of our system. so continue bring your items to us. We open for donations everyday at 10 am. We stop taking donations at 6pm ,when we close the store down. Check our home website at www.loudounhomeless.org for a donation guide. The only difference in what I accept and what Sterling accepts is large furniture. Ashburn doesn't have enough room yet for large furniture items. Those you'll have to take to Sterling.
Hope to see you soon.

This is the shot I took Monday June 23, 2008 of the our new site. We are on the homestretch now. One more piece of the puzzle needs to be completed in order for us to move Hope's Treasures in it's permanent home. It all goes well, this week will be the last week in the shopping plaza. Watch this blog for news of our move and the resulting sale to come. (You really didn't think I was moving all that stuff in the Hope's Treasures store.)Also look for when we will be able to start taking donations on this site.
Dedication for the building is scheduled for July 15th. Grand opening is scheduled on July 19th.
I'll keep you posted.
BTW - I can't say enough about the Wills Company that owns the shopping center next door for working with us and renting to us for a couple of months. They are a great landlord and have several openings in their plaza.
Wednesday, June 4, 2008
FYI - One of the advantages to my going back to Sterling is that I pass by Hope's Treasures every day when I check our new property for progress.
So I'm dropping off bins full of stuff several times a week if not daily. You will want to go more frequently now to see what has just arrived.
While your there, say hi to Amanda or Crystal.
Work on the new site is progressing nicely and by this time next month we should be moving the temp Hope's Treasures into it's permanent home next door. Pray that all the trades work swiftly. We're down to the home stretch now and things are looking really good in the new store.
I'll have pix online in a few days.

There is no better place to spend you money then at your local thrift or consignment store. Think about it. Think about all the places you shop. Where do their products come from. Thrift and consignment stores get there items from folks here in you local area. These items may come from oversees to begin with ,but now your local resale store reaps the benefit every time you purchase. So before you head out to the mall (and burn all that gas) find a thrift or consignment store near to shop in first. Check you thrift store out make sure it benefits a charity locally.
Our thrift store and Hope's Treasures both send all proceeds back to The Good Shepherd Alliance whose mission is to help those living in poverty in Loudoun County.
