In the Beginning
We were able to collect the donations and usually knew someone who needed that item right away. As the generosity grew...and grew...and grew...We had garages full all over the Lake Minnetonka area of wonderful items, just waiting for the perfect family that needed these items.
Just as the Brannon's garage was ready to explode...Bill Model (a His House board member) told us he owned a strip mall in Chaska that had an empty store. He offered to let to let us keep our donations in there until we needed to distribute them.
The Thrift Store
Almost the first day we started to empty all our garages and fill the empty store..people started lining up outside of the store and asking us if they could buy the items inside.
It was something we had not planned on, that is for sure, but if that was what we were being asked to do, then we had to be a good steward of this wonderful gift.
All clothes are $1.00, kids coats are $2.00, and adult coats are $5.00. Any volunteer working the store is empowered to not charge for any item if the person has challenges in paying. There are many free item always. We never charge for car seats, or undergarments.
