It is hard to believe that on Wednesday 23rd October this year it will be 45 years since Pensax Thrift Shop first opened in 1974. Life has certainly changed so much since then and, sadly, the end of October this year will mark our last session. Although the Thrift Shop continues to offer somewhere to buy and sell bargains of many kinds and the mornings still buzz with friendly chat and exchange of news, we are finding it a struggle to keep opening each week. In addition, we are now pretty much the sole users of Pensax Village Hall – we feel that the writing is on the wall.
As a small thank you for your support, we would love to see as many of our customers, past and present, at Pensax Village Hall on 23rd October (we are open 9-11am) for a glass of something bubbly and the chance to share memories. The scrapbooks that Nerys kept over the years with happy reminders of past events will be available to browse through. We hope very much that we will have the pleasure of seeing you then.
For our current customers who have items entered for sale at the Thrift Shop, please note that you will need to collect any money owing to you and anything unsold on or before Wednesday 30 October, after which what remains will be passed on to charity shops in the area.
