I went back to the thrift store last week, again on Thursday. I asked the lady working there that day if I could take some photos for my blog. She let me take some photos and then she shared information with me about the wonderful organization that runs the thrift store. The thrift store is called Bargain Fair Thrift Shop. It is located in the Wallingford neighborhood of Seattle at 1415 N 45th St
Seattle, WA 98103. It is run by volunteers who work for The Assistance League of Seattle. (The Assistance League has branches in many other major U.S. cities.) The Assistance League is a really great organization. The Seattle branch of this organization provides new school clothes for underprivileged children, provides enrichment scholarships for kids who couldn't otherwise afford extracurricular classes, and awards community college scholarships to adults who may not qualify for traditional scholarships.
And if a great cause isn't enough to convince you to shop there, maybe the great prices will. When I was there they were having a half off sale on all of the black clothing or clothing that had any black in it. But enough words, it's picture time!
