Green Olive Tree Snippets


by Sheila Freeman

It has been over a year since The Green Oliver Tree thrift store moved to its bright new location on Three Notch’d Road next to the Crozet Laundromat.

We still appreciate the all the aspects of the new store and our many customers old and new appear to agree that this has been a good move. Besides fashionable clothing, housewares, toys and seasonal items, we also have books, CDs and videos.

We will make our seasonal switchover in August. Look for special prices through Aug. 18. The week of August 20-26 will be a bag sale: $6 per bag. Plus, buy one bag, get a second one free.

We will be closed from Aug. 27 through Sept. 3. We will not accept donations during that week. We will reopen Sept 4.

Because of the generosity of our donors, “the Tree” is able to help community and Christian causes. We like to consider ourselves a community resource of information and friendliness.

We are thankful for all the volunteers, donors and shoppers, and the help of the Lord.

Special thanks go to volunteers Ellie Kroeger, Joice Wright, Barbara Kellum, Paul Clark, Jo Ann Perkins, Janet Martin, Trish Raymond, Brandy Copeland, Terry Crone and Kurt Kroeger. Nancy Bain and June Andrews, two founders, continue to inspire us.
