Volunteers, the Backbone of the Thrift Boutique
Operating the boutique requires having 4 - 8
trained volunteers present at all times.
* Sorting donations to eliminate stained, torn, broken items
we don't want to display.
* Cleaning items (washing dishes, possibly washing clothes
or steaming/fluffing them in the dryer, etc.)
* Making simple repairs to otherwise good items
* Painting furniture, etc., to make it look "shabby chic," etc.
* Welcoming customers and answering questions
* Running the cash register
*Cleaning (sweeping, dusting, etc.)
* Picking up donations and bringing them to the store in Buhler. (This might be after someone's rummage sale or going to a person's home to load furniture, etc. Consider the size of your vehicle since sometimes it will be a large amount to haul. Also, consider your strength for lifting. We might eventually be able to provide a truck and/or trailer, but for now, we'll need people who can provide their own.)
We need to fill shifts every day Tues. - Sat.:
10:00 AM - 1:30 PM, and 1:30 PM - 5:00 PM
If you are available for any of those times, or if you can come on a less structured time frame, please contact us by calling (620) 727-5532 or via email.
Thank you in advance!
(Volunteers receive one "dollar" of thrift cash
store credit for every hour worked!)
Donations keep the store open!
We accept gently-used and new items as donations, such as adult and children's clothing and accessories, shoes, home decor, dishes, housewares, pictures, furniture, and more. It is very helpful if you can bring your donations to the store during regular business hours. However, if you have a special situation, and you need someone to pick up large items, or if you need to bring them at a different time, please call us to arrange it. (620) 727-5532 or email us.
And please request a receipt to use for tax purposes!
We're amazed at the wonderful items and clothes that are donated to the boutique every day!
Come see for yourself! Great prices, too!

Angel's Rest Orphan Home
Thanks to the support of those who give, serve, and shop at the boutique, our first home was completed in April, 2017! Children are being selected now to make this their forever family home. We appreciate all of you!
