Upcycling isn't new, just taking off as another way to express one's creative spirit. Discarded, even broken things can be given new life and purpose with some creative thinking and a little elbow grease.
This week is National Volunteer Appreciation Week. Mercer Island Youth & Family Services and the thrift shop depend on volunteers to do many tasks – everything from cashiering at the thrift shop and pricing merchandise to greeting clients at our front desk and stocking shelves in the Pantry...
Elves are in our MITS workshop! Ok, well one might think so if walking into our recycling center recently. For one day, hundreds of holiday items are put into an organized production line and these kind and spirited people from our community help us get ready for our biggest reveal of the year. The volunteers all work at Microsoft who sponsors their efforts through the United Way Day of Caring. Check back later this fall for details on the showcase.
What are you wearing on gameday? What about to school or work the Friday before a home game? Seahawks fans have stepped up and are loud and proud showing how our collective spirit helps our team.
Every city, every town has their teams. In Seattle, we have the Seahawks, Reign, Storm, Sounders & Mariners. Something special happened to our city when a surge of spirit tripped outside the stadium. In backyards, playgrounds, in the grocery store aisle and on cubicles at work, the number 12 started showing up and soon thousands of non-football playing folks were wearing the colors of the Seahawks as a way to plug into the collective energy of our city.
Our donors and workers at the Mercer Island Thrift Store want to help keep this energy flowing...Today, there is an excellent selection of adult male, female and kid choices as well as accessories. We are the Seahawks: Superbowl champs, birthplace of the ageless #12 player fan and Wearing a Seahawks game shirt just makes the game day viewing that much better. The high fives smack better, nacho cheese dip tastes better and the photos of friends at the gameday party showcase all the fun.
Not everyone has Not everyone has $50-200 to drop on an outfit. Come to Mercer Island Thrift Shop for the winning look!
Who doesn’t want to be a part of something?
