I got to the store early with a list of photos I had to redo for the Facebook album. There was a line forming then. My job yesterday was to be the sorter but finished the Facebook album before the doors were opened.
A lovely lady had donated her whole home minus the stove and refrigerator and everything arrived Wednesday….the sofa and organ were among the things too big to store in back. While I worked on the small donations that kept arriving all day, three other’s began going through the boxes and containers that packed the back. It’s sad but fascinating to see a whole life in boxes.
As we sorted, in the front of the store, the shoppers crowded in. Long lines formed not only at the “hold” room where you can pile up your new found treasures, but at both registers. Everything that had flowed in all year long was now leaving at light speed. Even I broke down, much to G’s disappointment, and purchased two cat ornaments. There was a brief moment or two of calm in the middle of the day, but by the time I was headed home there were lines once again.
I was awfully glad that customers came out to support the American Cancer Society this holiday.
- Keeping those on the east coast in my thoughts. Our blogging friend ThomaS has talked to the FEMA folks and yesterday his insurance adjuster came by. Action at last.
