Thanks to All Who Showed Up for the Free Clothing!

Many thanks to all the people who came to Papa’s yesterday for the free clothing… you were great – and very helpful when the police officer asked us to move the totes of clothing into the alley (rather than blocking the sidewalk, which I hadn’t considered when setting up the giveaway). Thank you!

In less than an hour about 12 of the 20 total boxes & totes of clothing were gone. A few more people showed up after that, and later I donated what was left to a local church. Now we have lots more room in Papa’s Thrift Shop – which is just a tiny little place at 5 Park Street in Lewiston – and hope to be reorganized and re-opened on Monday, October 5th!

 

*******************************************************************
Location:
  Papa’s Thrift Shop at 5 Park Street, Lewiston ME 04240.
Hours: Usually 12:00 pm to 2:00 pm on Mondays, and 12:00 pm to 4:00 pm on Fridays & Saturdays.  Sometimes we’re open at other times … if you happen to drop by and don’t see the door open, check around the corner at Heritage Collectibles.  If we can, we’ll open up Papa’s for you.
Our hours do vary, unfortunately, depending on the demands of our day jobs (Linda is a social worker, and John is the post press supervisor at the local newspaper), whether we are exhibiting at an antiques or home show (rare nowadays), doing a garage sale or flea market clean-out, or are attending an auction we just don’t want to miss!  Your best bet is to call us first to make sure we’ll be there, or to make an appointment.  We do try to post our hours each day on the shop’s door, and on this blog.
Contact us:
… Linda: 207 740 2247 or LSnyder@regroupbiz.com (easier to reach than John, and somewhat more flexible)
… John: 207 713 0674 or JSnyder@regroupbiz.com
Generic Email
… PapasThriftShop@gmail.com

Message re Our Products:
Most of the items we offer are pre-owned (although you’ll find some things still have tags on them).  Therefore, reasonable wear & tear is to be expected, and our items are sold as seen and as described in the photos and/or in person.
We try to describe any damage, nicks, blemishes or other problems of which we are aware in any and all of our listings, and always include plenty of clear photographs which are integral to the description, so please review them closely.
We ordinarily do not “clean up” items because such cleaning may detract from their value.
We are specific and honest in our descriptions because we want happy buyers who will return and/or refer their friends!
