Today's Features

  • Shop on the Corner’s Annual Christmas Sale has assisted bargain hunters for more than four decades.  
    In addition to the usual thrift shop finds, Shop on the Corner’s Christmas Sale features hundreds of brand new and gently-used items that the volunteer staff has set aside all year.
    Holiday decorations, festive and new clothing, toys and games, books and music, linens, china and glassware, jewelry and gifts are some of the items featured at the sale.  
    This year’s sale will also include several collectors item Barbie dolls in original packaging. Shoppers may trim a tree, decorate a home and find gifts and stocking stuffers for everyone on their list at low thrift store prices.

  • One of the great assets in the 40 Developmental Assets is service to others. This week, I would like to add to that, service to self. As we approach a holiday weekend, spend some time doing, “a whole lot of nothing.”
    There are way too many people running at the speed of light with no time to rest. So in this weekend of Thanksgiving, take time to be thankful for time and then reward yourself with some.
    Stop and smell the roses, refill the well (whatever saying you like best) for a brief time this weekend. Then get the youth in your life to do the same.
    Spend a day doing what you’d like for five hours or 15 minutes, the length of time doesn’t matter, just do something for you.
