We left a notebook out to be discovered by shoppers, volunteers or any visitors to the store. On the page, a poem title was suggested with the invitation for anyone and everyone to begin and then further the poem along. We thought we’d share a few with you.
WHATS AT THRIFTY?
Lots of hidden treasures every time you look Treasure hunting is my pleasure
Took a look and I found a book
Shopping for bright colors, thinking of May
We are family, we have all our volunteers and me babe in arms, the world’s all good!
Peace, crazy love, talking, friendships, family Smiling faces among the laces
You are all so lovely, I think of you as family Hope Peace
Love. Love. Love
Now it’s time to leave, so we fly away like doves
THIS STORE IS..
A practice…. A love practice
Smiling faces among the laces-
My sanity within the insanity?
A safe place
A place where we can come together to share, care and love one another
All we are saying, is to give Peace a chance
Thank you Ms. Cookie 4 the cookie
Sweet, gentle haven, Thank You!
Thank God for this place where we can fellowship and buy at prices that are affordable
Today we laughed, prayed, and stayed a while
And then we made a big group smile
Hoping it would brighten up your day
This is the place!! AMEN
