I got me a little job at the JUBILEE! It’s a thrift shop run my Christian ministries.
A part time, part time, job is what I wanted and I’m working just 10 to 12 hours a week, so it’s perfect! And, I get to see all the new (gently used) things that come in…you all know how much I love thrift shops!
The winter clearance sale is on now and all clothes, shoes and purses are half price. Bargains galore! I’m seeing lots of bargain hunters, both men and women, finding incredible prices on familiar names like Geoffrey Beene, Aeropostle, Coach, Polo, osh kosh, Gap, American Eagle, and more. This year there’s an over abundance of men’s and women’s coats. How about Columbia sportswear or London Fog for 4$ or $6 ?
All clothes sold at Jubilee are in excellent condition or they’re not put it in the store, they goes upstairs to “discount land’ and are sold for practically nothing. So if you can sew on a button or fix a seam you might even find something up there too.
You know I bought a few things…. a pair of Ralph Lauren shoes for $2, some elastic waist pants for my mom and a shirt for Bill.
I’ve only been working there for 3 weeks but I’ve learned lots that I can pass on.
*If your child is nearing age 7, you probably should think about taking away that pacifier.
*If you’re at the checkout, don’t fight with others in line, it makes people nervous. (me)
*If you have several blouses you want to try on and run into a long lost friend who wants to chat, please try on the blouses in the dressing room after you’re done chatting and not while chatting in the corner of the store where everyone can see you standing in your bra!
So far it’s a fun little job and I’m enjoying it. The Jubilee shop has a wonderful history and offers many services to the community. You can read more about it HERE.
