Thrift store closes

Letter to the editor 1/24/13 edition

January 23, 2013 

Dear Editor,

The Wild Wonderful Women and Friends would like to thank the community and our loyal donors and customers for eight years of support for our Wonderful Treasures Thrift Store.

As of Jan. 9, the store has changed ownership and will no longer be a non-profit thrift store.

To date we have donated more than $350,000 to local community needs and groups. Also many donations of items have been made over the years.

We will continue our community involvement from the King Vintage Museum. We are becoming a museum mini-mall with more exhibits, more events, and more retail sales out of our gift shop.

In February we will add "Auntie Jean's Teddy Bear Museum," in honor of Jean Eaton. The Teddy Bear Museum was along time interest of Jeans. Antiques and vintage bears, history of the Teddy Bear and Good Bears of the World, artist bears and seasonal bears will be on exhibit and for sale.

There are several other thrift stores in our area, please support them as your have supported us.

This was a difficult decision but we want to explore new adventures.

Thank you again and we look forward to you visiting us at the King Vintage Museum Mini-Mall.

Toni Lagunoff, president,
